These giant land slugs were former denizens of the Derfland Region. Known for their voracious appetites, they became infamous for the crippling damage they wrought on the berry crops of the Rolanberry Fields, causing agricultural yields to plummet. Their highly vicious bodily fluids eluded successful analysis despite the best efforts of Jeuno's engineering elite, and it was not until the days after the war that a collaborative effort with the ingenious technicians of Windurst would bring about a complete eradication of these pests in the Middle Lands.
Slug is the common term used to describe any gastropod (members of class Gastropoda in phylum Mollusca) which lacks a shell. Slugs have two pairs of tentacles on their head, which are used to sense light and detect smells and can also regenerate if lost. Slugs can dwell on land or in water. On land, they are confined to moist environments. They produce mucus, which is used to assist in movement, retain moisture in their bodies and as protection against predators.
