In The City Of Towers
Kruthiks are large and aggressive reptillian creatures that live in hive-like colonies. An adult Kruthik is the size of a large pony, and much more deadly. Kruthik burrow out their nests using their sharp talons. A given hive is led by its Hive Lord, an extremely large and ferocious Kruthik.
Kruthiks are known to tolerate or ignore certain creatures who have symbiotic roles in the protection of their hive or in the luring of prey.
