|Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians
Gaks are a sapient species in the Free Kingdoms and the Hushlands(and also a popular saying from Alcatraz). There is at least one living in Scotland. They are extremely difficult to kill, and are capable of defeating multiple Crystin at once. They are capable of speech and can communicate clearly.
Appearance and Anatomy
Gaks are large reptilian creatures, with blue scaly skin and numerous arching yellow spines along the length of its body. It has a long, serpentine head, and several rows of teeth. Gaks have long bulbous bodies, with large sacs spaced along its body. They use the sacs to store their meals as they digest them, which can take weeks or months.
Back in the 17th century, Gaks ate straw often, attacking humans and eating them, then eating straw to help with the digestion process. However, as humans began using soap, it disrupted the digestive systems of the Gaks, which resulted in them needing to consume more and more straw. This caused widespread starvation amongst the humans, which resulted in less food for the Gaks. The problem was solved by Polanski Ansel, who negotiated the Great Gak Treaty. In the treaty, the Gaks swore never to touch any straw again, and the humans swore to stop playing accordions (which drove the Gaks crazy, along with everyone else). The treaty also stated that if a human catches a Gak touching straw, that Gak must do the human a service, which is usually the service of not being eaten.
