Paehrrice are huge bear-like creatures who roam the tropical forests of the Salts. They are often confused for birds as they are covered in large brightly colored scales made of feathers. At the end of their enormous heads lies a giant bone-crushing beak, which allows them to easily break smaller mammals into pieces before swallowing them down.

Paehrrice mothers leave both the fathers and their cubs within weeks of giving birth. The fathers live with their cubs until the cubs ready to live on their own, usually around four years old. Paehrrice will generally leave most creatures alone that are human-sized or larger, unless they encounter them within a half mile of a recent kill. A Paehrrice will do anything to protect its food.
