Karkathians are large intelligent creatures who prefer to live in mountain caverns. They are most prevalent in the Perilous Peaks, where the mountain ranges contain famously large cavern systems. Here they live in groups called prides with a generally higher ratio of females to males. Each pride selects the strongest male and female as their king and queen, and this diarchy determines what is best for the rest of their group.
