Bacar are intelligent, ant-like creatures living in the jungle in Far Payit in Maztica. As far as is known the only colony that exists lives in the ruined city of Ixtzul. The Bacar were created by the last ruler of Ixtzul (Greyst) using Hishna magic. Solitary bacar are relatively unintelligent but gain a sort of hive intelligence in larger groups.
Bacar colonies are ruled by a highly intelligent queen. In order to avoid overpopulation the bacar will eat any unneeded eggs laid by the queen.
