Notes "Howlers are widespread on Var Loralng, Eschi and Zis, although they have not been observed on any of the smaller islands. They are bipedal creatures, standing around four feet in height, with hairless mottled brown hides and monkey-like faces. Their upper limbs bear long fingers ending in wicked claws, although they lack a thumb. Howlers seem to have an uncanny ability to sense the presence of intruders, even from a full mile away. When they do so, they inflate their entire chest cavity like a balloon and use it to create a terrifying series of howls and woops that echo for miles around. The other creatures of the islands have learnt to associate these sounds with the presence of hated intruders, and immediately begin to congregate on the origin, eager to begin their orgies of violence. Howlers seem to live in colonies of four to five individuals" tt#13
