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 (the Sun, the Moon, the Stars, the Earth, the Sky, and the Ocean), 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]

Abyssal Whales

Abyssal Whales are whale-like creatures that are rumored to live in the deserts of Neolandia.[2]

Adoraburrs

Adoraburrs are small, fuzzy, and colorful creatures, with six subspecies that correspond to each of the Primal Sources.[3] They are highly communal creatures that 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.[4] Multiple Adoraburrs will stick together.[5]

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.

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, long feline tails, and are of a size comparable to 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.
