An Enkar'al was a very rare, leather-winged reptilian creature roughly equivalent in size to a horse. Atop their sinuous necks they had long reptilian heads bristling with fangs. Their membranous wings were ten paces across, and they possessed huge razor-sharp talons. Their chests were ridged and their bodies were covered in gnarled and shimmering scales of bright yellow or blood-red.[1][2][3] They may have had poor vision as Karsa Orlong once referred to someone as being "as blind as an enkar'al".[4]

Enkar'al were feared and ferocious fighters, capable of tearing through a score of armoured marines in moments. Their scaly hides were difficult to penetrate with anything less than a sword or heavy scimitar.[5]

The term enkar'al came from the Seven Cities (Bisbrha and Debrahl) language[6] where they could be found inhabiting Raraku. On that continent they were considered a delicacy and their meat could be worth a hundred jakatas a pound in Pan'potsun.[7]

Like D'isthal WyvallaWyval, and Trol, they were the "lesser spawn" of Starvald Demelain.[8]

In Deadhouse GatesEdit

A yellow enkar'al was summoned by a pirate mage to attack the marines protecting the Ragstopper. The creature killed at least seven before Kalam Mekhar destroyed its wings, dropping it to the ship's deck to be set upon and destroyed by the survivors.[9]

A blood-red Soletaken enkar'al battled Messremb in the maze surrounding Tremorlor. The giant bear Soletaken quickly dispatched it.[10]
