Region of origin: Inganok

Scaly flying beasts compared in size to elephants, the shantak were avian creatures the native peoples of Inganok could utilize to carry them over the otherwise impassible mountain ranges that separated their country from the neighboring plateau of Leng and beyond. Nodens, ancient god and Lord of the Great Abyss, regularly hunted wild shantak and as a result the shantak have became natural enemies of the nightgaunts, winged humanoid creatures who served as emissaries of Nodens.
