The lands of Xadia are full of magical creatures, and some still remain in the the Human Kingdoms even after the division of the continent. All of these creatures are connected to one of the six Primal Sources, which allows them to naturally harness magical energy from their respective source.

Dark magic, however, uses the essence within magical creatures to unleash dark power.[1]

Adoraburrs

Adoraburrs are small, fuzzy, and colorful creatures, with six subspecies that correspond to the Primal Sources.[2] They are highly communal creatures who can thrive in almost any Xadian ecosystem, but they are primarily found just east of the Border, in the shady comfort of the Moonshadow Forest. Moonshadow Elves are particularly fond of them.[3] Multiple Adoraburrs will stick together.[4]

Amblers

Amblers are among the largest magical creatures in Xadia and are connected to the Earth Primal. They can be used as mounts to travel across the Midnight Desert. They have long necks, tails, and legs, as well as two toes on each foot. Amblers appear rather mammalian due to having fur and long floppy ears. Their tremendous size allows the rider to evade the vicious creatures that lurk on the desert's surface, such as the Soulfang Serpents. Their immense size presumably allows them to resist the bite of the Soulfangs, as many Soulfangs are struggling to bring down a single Ambler, even after several minutes of constant attacks.

Archangel Lunaris

Archangel Lunaris are giant moon moths that are connected to the Moon Primal. They are used to track sources of moon energy, especially creatures that are connected to the moon. An Archangel Lunaris was used by Soren in an attempt to find the camp of the Moonshadow Elf assassins.[6] When combined with dark magic, three Archangel Lunaris can be used to create an illusion of a person, as shown by Claudia when creating a clone of Viren during the battle at the Storm Spire.[7] They are based on real life luna moths.

Banthers

Banthers are creatures that resemble a mix of a panther and a bear and are native to the kingdom of Katolis. They have black fur with gray markings, and they are about the size of large horses. They are far less ferocious than they appear, as Ezran was able to befriend several throughout his adventures, including asking two of them to give him, Bait, and Corvus a ride back to the castle in Katolis's capital. According to Ezran, they like praise, compliments, and a friendly scratch under the chin now and then. The Banther Lodge of Katolis is named after these creatures.

Bumble-Scorps

Bumble-Scorps are insect-like creatures that tend to buzz and flail their scorps when attacking. However, they only attack humans that are alone.[8]

Dragons

Dragons are powerful reptilian beings that can live for centuries and have deep connections to the Primal Sources. They rule the lands of Xadia alongside the elves, and the most powerful of their race is crowned King or Queen of the Dragons. Their horns, earwax, and snot are often harvested as ingredients for dark magic spells.[9]

Elves

Elves are humanoid beings that are divided into six subspecies, each corresponding to the different Primal Sources. Each subspecies have their respective societies but are united for the most part. They rule the lands of Xadia alongside the dragons.

Emberback Spiders

Glow Toads

Glow Toads are toad-like creatures that are connected to the Sun Primal. Despite being used for bait among deep-sea fishermen, they are remarkably intelligent and trainable pets.

Griffins / Gryphons

Griffins / Gryphons are winged, four-legged, bird-like creatures. They are known to be poached for their eyes, feathers, and talons, which serve as ingredients for dark magic spells.[11] Instead of having the head of an eagle, the griffins of Xadia have the head of an owl.[12]

Magma Titans

Magma Titans are large humanoid beings that are connected to the Sun Primal. They mainly appear as giants covered in a plated armor of rocks and lava. The hearts of Magma Titans can be used in a dark magic spell that can favorably alter the weather.

Moon Phoenixes

Moon Phoenixes are large bird-like creatures that are connected to the Moon Primal. Like phoenixes in contemporary mythology, they can be reborn after dying, being consumed in their unique blue flames before burning to ashes. After dying, they will leave behind a "ghost feather", which can be used in a rebirth ritual at the Moon Nexus.[13] During the cycle of rebirth, their eggs appear in a silver color.[13] Their feathers and blood are often harvested as ingredients for dark magic spells.[9]

Moonstriders

Moonstriders are slim and tall canine creatures that are connected to the Moon Primal. They are used as one of the Silvergrove's primary mounts. The Moonstrider is a notoriously stubborn and solitary creature. Far more difficult to tame than the Shadowpaw, they require an experienced rider with the patience to challenge the creature’s prideful nature.

Shadowpaws

Shadowpaws are horned feline creatures that are connected to the Moon Primal. They are used as one of the Silvergrove's primary mounts. Despite enormous physical strength and ferocity under duress, the Shadowpaw was the first creature companion to the Moonshadow Elves. The Shadowpaw's protective, familial nature proved a natural match to the Elves’ reclusive, intimate lifestyles.

Soulfang Serpents

Soulfang Serpents are snake-like creatures that are connected to the Moon Primal.[14] They dwell in the black sands of the Midnight Desert in Xadia and their bite consumes the spirit of their prey, turning their bodies into empty husks.

Twin-Tailed Inferno-Tooth Tigers are winged, horned feline creatures that are connected to the Sun Primal. It is said that they can sense the light and the darkness within a person's heart.

Unicorns

Unicorns were horned horse-like creatures that are connected to the Star Primal. They were known to be poached for their horns to craft dark magic recipes.[11] Unicorns were considered to be the most selfless beings in Xadia, as it was them who bestowed the gift of magic upon the humans, despite being warned by the elves that humans shouldn't be trusted. The unicorns taught humans how to craft primal stones, how to draw runes to focus their power, and how to speak Ancient Draconic to release the spells. But when dark magic was invented, the horns of unicorns were believed to be the most valuable and sought-after prize in Xadia. As a result, the humans hunted the unicorns to the point where they completely disappeared from Xadia.[8]
