The Shrykull is a mystical and legendary creature whose appearance is half‐Scrab, half‐Paramite. It has the body of a Scrab but with the Paramites’ arms and facial fingers. In Mudokon mythology, it is a dualistic god representing creation and destruction, fear and love, but above all else it is the Mudokon god of vengeance and possesses the spirit of the sacred beasts. Mudokons like Abe that complete the Big Face’s trials in Paramonia and Scrabania are granted hand scars that allow them to bring Shrykull into their souls when using certain bird portals, transforming them into half‐Mudokon, half‐God beasts that have incredible destructive power.
