| Rinkhal Monitor
These large reptilian creatures have the body of a velociraptor and the head of a cobra. They may be found isolated, in groups of up to three, or with a Keshel the Voracious in the area outside the entrance to Blacktide Den.
- At level 13, they are quite strong in comparison to some of the other enemies in Istan. It is recommended that players avoid these until they reach level 10.
- "Rinkhals" (Hemachatus haemachatus) are cobra-like African snakes able to spit venom.
