Suckertails were a variety of eel found in Tarmalune, one of the Windrise Ports of Laerakond.[1]


Suckertails had soft sucking mouths, and only ate dung and rotting things. They also ate blood, but not from living beings, only sucking blood from carrion.[1]

People from Tarmalune allowed, and even encouraged, the existence of a large population of wild suckertails in the sewers of Tarmalune, as the suckertails ate all the garbage produced in the city, helping to maintain the city tidy and clean.[1]

Some people even domesticated suckertails to use during their bathing sessions, as short exposure to swarms of suckertails was said to be pleasant.[1]
