Dark Ones – any of the evil creatures spawned in the Breeding Pits to serve the Dark Lord.
Giants – Monstrous humanoids with exaggerated features shaped in mockery of the Dwarves, standing 15’ tall and more, the giants were Morkanis’s favored troops. Like him, they relied on brute strength.
Goblins – the slaves of the Darkhold and the lowest of the Dark Ones, these small dark green skinned humanoids with large round eyes tended the Breeding Pits.
Jixari (jix-arr-ee)– these black furred humanoids had bat faces, skin the color of night and a score of silvery antennae on their heads. Masters of fear and illusion, the dark savants of Cthar, they wielded terrifying mental powers.
Maldoks (mal-docks) – the most terrifying of Erlik’s creation and the Dark Lord’s favorites, these 10’ tall demons had huge beetle heads with red-faceted eyes and iron-like mandibles. Standing on black scaly legs, their upper bodies had purple skin, crimson fur, and their arms ended in sharp three-taloned claws. They were masters of fell sorcery and the other Dark Ones cowered before them.
Pit Hounds – Black, dog-like creatures with bristling fur wet with rancid oil, they stood nearly five feet tall at the shoulder. Their eyes were deep crimson and their sharp fangs dripped foam.
Orcs – similar to Goblins, but stronger and more bestial looking, Orcs were the most numerous Dark Race and the foot soldiers in the Armies of Darkness.

Trolls – 10’ tall brutish misshapen beast men, with sharp claws, jagged teeth and green and brown scaly hide sprouting black bristly fur. Stronger than orcs, but dumber.
Ulgarja (Ool-gar-jah) – 20’ and longer, Ulgarja were poisonous squid like masses of rubbery tentacles. Zara was the Queen of the Ulgarja and lived as one of them in the Darkhold’s fetid pools.
