The Tephra is one of the most dangerous creatures commonly found above Asthenos. Not known to enter Azaleara itself, the Tephra uses creatures like the Mole and Stink Mole to carry-out it’s attacks there.
The Tephra is not physically dangerous, and is in fact a very fragile and slow creature. The power of the Tephra is it’s ability to control the minds of other creatures, either leading them to carry out the Tephra’s wishes, or to disable or destroy an enemy by over-stressing the enemy’s mind.
The Tephra is a very proud creature, and is constantly competing with other Tephras to maintain their status. Because of their need for personal status, the Tephra is highly untrustworthy, quick to anger, and always suspicious.
