An unseen animal from times forgotten... The baldusa is the graceful giant of Atysian seas. It emits a powerful electrical charge as it slices through Atys' watery depths like lightning through the humid summer air. The Karavan was said to have harnassed this creature to power their machines, but the knowledge was lost to the homins on the currents, and too many a homin has lost his life in trying to master this savage source of energy. Baldusa meat is a Tryker delicacy, which if not correctly prepared, can be toxic when ingested.
It has been mentioned in official sources that the Trykers used these animals as mounts.
The coming of Terroy O'Gara
Yet another file of bedraggled Tryker refugees has recently straggled in from the old world. Their leader, Terroy O'Gara brought knowledge of trading technologies that had long been lost. His clan, having been riders of the baldusa that swim in the lakes of the old world, have joined the guild of Atrium Keepers to apply their riding techniques to mount the common Mektoub. In keeping with the Free Trade Agreement of 2516, Still Wyler, the great Governor of the Trykers, has dispatched envoys to share the new findings with the other homin civilizations.
