Magkulot, sometimes called quill-cats, are predatory beasts that, while originating in the Spellsung WIlds, have made their way as far north as the Nagabon Mountains. They are seen as a scourge by the residents of the Radiant Empire, and the nation has made several efforts to try and exterminate them.
Magkulots are about the size and shape of a hairless wolf, with scapulae that extend far from their back, framing a host of man-sized, lethally-sharp quills. The quills, when they penetrate a target, peel off of the magkulot and create a vacuum effect, sealing themselves to whatever they are latched to and drawing out blood. Magkulots are carnivorous, and not afraid to prey on humans or their livestock. The creatures travel in packs of about a dozen, though larger groups have been seen.
