THE BAT (FLITTERMOUSE, DARKSINGER)

The Bat

Image description.

Bats are also known as Cave Bats, Canyon Bats, Flittermice or Darksingers. This small flying mammal has a natural ‘sonar’ system, is a devoted mate, and can eat its weight in insects in one night. It prefers to roost in caves by day and flies by night, using bounced echoes to determine its location in the air. They are favorites of the Thergerim, who have domesticated them and use them as a kind of organic message system (see Morjualerons entry). A group of bats is called a “clowd”.
