Prophecy of the Circle Wiki

A Hyech, as seen in chapter 2, page 113.

Hyech (hee-ETCH) are venemous arthropods that seek shelter in dark, cool places, such as inside tents, and are known for being unfortunately aggressive when disturbed. Most will only cause an irritating pain with their sting, but there are varieties with powerful enough venom to kill a tikedi. They pose a danger especially to tikedi kits, but are viewed as bothersome pests by all Tarsin.
