"The Thaliak River
is a shining symbol of the Dravanian hinterlands
─the great mother who blesses the land with the gift of water. But where the gentle and generous mother brings life, the cruel and merciless father─an oversized crustacean
who rules over the Thaliak with an iron claw─brings only death. The great glutton will pounce on anything that moves, and chop up his prey with his tail pincers faster than you can say “ouch.” If you don't keep an eye on that tail of his, you'll be feeding the fishes in bite-sized chunks."
