About[edit | edit source]
Bakukin are commonly also known as "Sea-Serpentfolk" do to their similarity to both seafolk and serpents. Common tactics of a Bakukin, once it has detected you in the waters, is to hold its prey down and pry open its mouth, forcing water down a target's throat and drowning them quickly. It is said that the Bakukin have a working relationship with the Bakunawa, and often times, when particularly difficult prey are fighting back, or if the Bakukin are having difficulty securing a specific target, the Bakunawa is surely on its way. Whether the creatures are born of the Bakunawa, or have formed a symbiotic relationship with the sea-serpent is still up for debate.
History[edit | edit source]
The Venship encountered a pack of Bakukin on the coasts of Kiston during their fateful crash on its shores in 207 BR. At the time, none of them had encountered anything like the Bakukin, and dubbed the Sea-Serpentfolk nickname for the beasts.
