The Krait Profiled

The Krait Profiled -

The latest in a series of articles spotlighting the lesser races of Tyria has appeared on the official Guild Wars 2 blog. Titled "Shadows in the Water", the post details the Krait. The Krait are intelligent creatures with long tails and who are known for keeping prisoners above water until required for sacrificial purposes.

Krait society is dark and fanatical. Led by their priesthood, the Oratuss, the krait follow an ancient doctrine handed down to them by their abyssal prophets and constantly foretell of the prophets’ return. The krait religion is based on massive obelisks of a unique, dark stone that can be found exclusively and rarely on Tyria’s ocean floors. The krait believe that each of these obelisks was raised upon the site of a krait prophet’s ascension into a mystic world, a world beyond this one, where these nameless prophets are building an army great enough to eradicate all other species. One day, they will return and drown the surface of Tyria beneath one massive sea. The krait sacrifice slaves to show reverence to the prophets and to ensure that the prophets will have servants in their mystical “other world.”
