The korix is a carnivorous creature that resides deep within the caverns beneath the Atlica Mountains. It is ancient; the korix is immense with a number of large tentacles with toothed suckers. Since it is too large to leave its lair, it deploys tiny seeker orbs of light that lure its prey back to its lair.
|Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.|
The korix was created by the Draol wizard Orilac to protect the town of Overvale from intruders. It is also used as the primary method of population control (see [[The Transfer). This makes the korix around 8000 years old. Over time it grew to be too large to leave the caverns, so, with the help of Orilac, it developed the seeker orbs so that it could survive.
