Ro-kala-tava are one of animal species native to the luminarian homeworld. Ro identifies the entity as a scaly, reptilian one, kala means a predatory pack creature, and tava means dirt, earth.
Ro-kala-tava are neither particularly cunning, vicious, powerful, or fast predators. Yet, they can be quite dangerous as they are very tenacious, can burrow through sand and soft stone, and live in packs. In combat they can stand on the hind legs while biting and scratching with their front claws.
