Cloud eels are magical, flying creatures that first appeared after several blood sacrifices were made to Drogor in an effort to appease him in response to the many holy portents and compulsions experienced by Clerics in late 413 and early 414.
As long as an average Gnome's height and as thick as one's neck, the cloud eel moves about with an exceptional natural fluidity. It has benign, jewel-like silvery eyes that almost belie its predatory posture. The sleek body is covered in nacreous scales, patterned with pale cream-hued spots along its sides. The cloud eel is airborne, floating overhead effortlessly.
Drogorian stormriders are a special sub-type of cloud eel.
As long as an average Dwarf's height and as thick as one's neck, the Drogorian stormrider moves about with an exceptional natural fluidity. It has benign, jewel-like silvery eyes that almost belie its predatory posture. The sleek body is covered in nacreous black scales, exuding electricity from the flashing yellow spots patterned along its sides. The Drogorian stormrider is airborne, floating overhead effortlessly.
Thunder eels occasionally appear upon the death of a cloud eel. They display varieties that correspond to those of the standard cloud eels.
You recall reading an Empath Guild document about the aerial ecosystems of Elanthia. With the airborne flora and herbivores of Lemicus, and the carnivores of Drogor that prey on the latter, the denizens of these self-sustaining sky domains typically never come down to the surface during their lifetimes. The cloud eels and thunder eels are a notable exception, wont to ride their maker's storms in marauding schools throughout Qi'Reshalia and beyond.
