Gyr

The Gyr are what goes bump in the night. Every Kalinthian child is afraid of being taken by them, every mother is afraid that her children will be replaced by them. Very little is known about the Gyr, but much is said. They are purported to be a deathly blue color, the color of a drowned human. They have black eyes, black as the Great Below itself. They drink the blood of human children, they lure women into the sea, and men off of cliffs. They can become invisible in all but direct daylight, their skin is hard as granite, their teeth are made from ice as hard as diamonds, and their touch can freeze you.

The Gyr will not enter the holy places of Kalinthians, and they do not like the touch of steel. The Gyr can still feel the fire of the forge if touched by steel weapons. Likewise, the sound of the forge scares them, as does the burning of coal.
