The Hylek

The Hylek -

The Guild Wars 2 site has been updated with a profile of one of the enemy races to be found in the game. This time the amphibious Hylek are showcased. These froglike creatures are masters of poisons and known to be fierce warriors. "Hylek" was once the name of an individual tribe of these beasts but all tribes have united under the racial moniker "Hylek" in the current GW 2 universe.

Hylek live in small, independent tribes. These tribes consist of anywhere from a dozen to hundreds of hylek. Each tribe is ruled by a single hylek chieftain who holds sole and absolute authority. Successful chieftains typically consult with the priests and elder members of the tribe lest popular sentiment turn against them.

Individual tribes are extremely territorial and it is rare for them to cooperate with one another. The various tribes of the hylek are differentiated by color, which also hints at how aggressive that particular tribe is. In fact, the color of a hylek tribe is also a good indication of the strength of the toxins that they generate; those tribes that produce the deadliest toxins are the most aggressive and dangerous to outsiders. When first making contact with a hylek tribe, it is wise to approach cautiously until you can determine whether they will be treat you as a guest and trade partner or as a threat to exterminate.
