On the tropical island of Mävro, the sunlight only reaches the soil through reflection. The overabundant plantlife had created a dense ecosystem teeming with insects, fungi, and the largest serpent population of the planet. An environment perfect for a nocturnal tree-dwelling creature, feared by both beast and man. Täuku. Hardy and strong, the Täuku would never be mistaken as one of the descendants of Arödrin. Addicted to the delicacies of magic, the Täuku sought to feed that addiction by turning their attention to the darker arts. A path which twisted both spirit and body into what they are today: hideous beasts with an unmatched understanding of the shadow arts. For thousands of years this race has faithfully served the master of darkness, Mahan, and reluctantly under the charge of Mahan's general, Thule. Ripping the lifeforce from Elämä to feed their craft, the Täuku can always be found at the forefront of the horde's attack upon the lighter races.
