Creatures of Thra

Fizzgig

A Fizzgig is a furry creature about the size of a grapefruit, with a large mouth containing both a regular jaw and an inner jaw, two eyes, and four stubby legs. It rolls along the ground to move quickly. Fizzgig is Kira's pet, but he is not unique. Fizzgig is a species raised by Pod People to herd nebrie. The Pod People domesticated the Fizzgig, a creature they occasionally used for keeping watch on plant tendrils.

Kira's Fizzgig, raised as a pet in the Podling village, watched over Kira, always protective of her.


Landstriders

The Landstriders, friends or Kira, were bitter enemies of the Garthim. These swift beasts allowed Gelfling to ride them. Less powerful than the Garthim, they compensated with speed and intelligence. Their speed and slashing blows would leave a Garthim crippled before it knew it had been attacked. When a Landstrider fell in battle, its flesh was highly prized by the Skeksis, who considered it a great delicacy.


Makraks

Makraks lived beneath the surface of Thra until the day the Crystal cracked. Forced from their home, the creatures could barely breath the air on the surface and even the rain hurt them. Driven mad with fear and pain, they were mistaken for evil creatures of destruction.


Nebrie

Nebrie are a large, semi-aquatic swamp grub, used as a food source in different ways. The Pod People use them as a source of milk, and trained Fizzgig to herd Nebrie. Roast Nebrie was a common delicacy for the Skeksis. The Nebrie also served the Pod People as a totem animal.
