Ezytlichou Species in Qet | World Anvil




I told my brother to quit making that sound— that buzzing. He shook his head and the smile fell from his face. We both turned, cautiously, towards the noise— to find a horrid swarm of gnashing teeth and wings fast approaching.
— A witness
  Small, yet deadly in number, ezytlichou are small bat-sized flying monsters that hunt in swarms and nest in troublesome areas.

Each ezytlichou has a small, slender body about the size of a fist coated with pale-blue scales and sparse, short brown hair. They appear almost like flying fish, with a tapered back and wide head. Though, their head is horizontal unlike the vertical heads of most fish. Along the entire length of the front of the head lies a sharp-toothed mouth.   A set of four pale-orange beetle-like wings sprout from just below where the head meets their body. Their bright colors are their only mercy, serving as an early warning sign for any unlucky enough to spot a swarm.  
The sun shined off their blue scales— enough to reflect off the wall before me, giving me just enough time to flee.
— A lucky man


As monsters, ezytlichou hunger for the energy contained within the flesh of humanity. Weak individually, they form swarms that can overrun their prey with a horrid gnashing of teeth and beating of wings. A single swarm can contain anywhere from twenty to one-hundred singular creatures. They attack prey from above, and begin to devour them regardless of whether they are dead or alive.  

A dangerous nuisance

Ezytlichou produce pale orange wasp-like nests whereever is convenient for them, be that under a tree, in the middle of a trail— or inside someone's home. These cases are particularly distressing for residents, should they survive, and it is quite difficult to combat the creatures within confied spaces. Those who attempt to run in and kill the pests with spears, swords, or blunt objects seldom survive the attempt— unless they are well armored. Instead, most choose to weaponize fire or alchemical grenades to remove the threat— even if it costs them their home.

I see you sending notifications, but any I say. The number shall not grow. Great work on getting so much done! Hmmm... back to the yellow again? I'm super curious, what was the purple about? Maybe I havnt hit that notification yet?     On to the article here, wasp like beasties are nightmare fuel for me. Well done there, and the picture painted is horrifying indeed. I was a little confused at the statement of head shape. You mention how it is unlike most fish but never mentioned anything fish like about them, apart for scales, which on land makes me think of reptiles. Maybe that's a me thing but I was wondering about it so i thought I'd say something.   It's an awesome addition to the many horrors of Qet and I certainly wouldnt want to run into a swarm. Well done, as always.

Sorry not sorry. It'll slow down to normal levels for a bit haha, I just happened to run into three small articles in a row in my reformatting spree— allowing me to get them all done on stream! Yellow is the default theme, and what I want to show for Rqet related articles as the continent is my main focus.   They are fish like in shape, as well— as I follow up the fish like comment with, they have a wide head and a thinner end, tapering into a shape akin to a fish.   Thank you! I wouldn't want to run into them either!
