The Iakhuru originated from the Deadwood, but since the withering of their homeland they have dispersed into the rest of Abmiram. They are rare to see.

Important Iakhuru:

  • Taushung, Guardian of the Iakhuru

The Iakhuru are largely nomads and scavengers. Nocturnal, they are only ever sighted during the night, and they are very rare to see. Records in High Morwin’s grand library provide that the Iakhuru may have had a large city somewhere in the Deadwood several centuries ago, but they maintained little contact with Abmiram’s other cultures so little is known about the nature of their former society or practices. Now the iakhuru are spread thinly among the rest of Abmiram’s inhabitants, and survive usually by thievery. Typically they are solitary, surreptitious creatures, but pairs or small groups may form which may opt to take a more direct and violent approach to acquiring what they need. Because so little is known about them, and due to their somewhat feral appearance and uncivilized conduct, they are considered dangerous by all other of Abmiram’s people. Some believe they are monsters; others that they are evil spirits that lurk from the depths of the Deadwood to terrorize their victims. In many areas, stories of ghostly iakhuru are told for entertainment or to frighten disobedient children into behaving.
