The pandiri are a species of fish who serve as a vital food source for Bregan.
These large heavily scaled fish are famous for their late summer migration from the Stone Sea up the southern estuaries of the Shieldlands. Many local tribes, in particular those at Bregan, depend on this annual bounty for their survival. Once they have spawned in the upper forest reaches of the rivers, a large number of the older adults die but most return performing the seasonal journey up to a dozen times. Unfortanutely, in their usual habitat, the pandiri are voracious predators, each equipped with a fearsome set of serrated teeth. Once they gather in numbers they can strip prey of its flesh in minutes. As a consequence, it takes an enormous amount of skill and not a small amount of bravery to catch them.
