They are hatched and raised in the Khainite Temples found throughout the Mortal Realms. Scáthborn often train with them so they can detect and focus on wounded foes in the heat of battle to more easily target them.
They have a sharp sense of smell, able to track their targets with just a single drop of blood even if they are miles away. Their sharpened, hooked fangs contain an anticoagulant venom that thins the blood and causes their victims to bleed to death. Afterwards, the rest of the brood nest can catch up for the kill.
