Kith, from The Chronicle of Pagan
|Only appearance:||Ultima VIII|
Kith are huge insect-like animals come in two variants:
Domestic Kith, which are cultivated for their meat and silk, are harmless having been de-venomed and de-fanged at birth.
The newborn kith are without skeletons or armor, and are known to work their small soft bodies into the cracks of dungeon walls, waiting for adventurers. 
Kith living in the wild are much more dangerous. With their enormous strength and hard chitinous armor, they can make short work of a grown human. Only a well-equipped adventurer should dare to battle a Kith.
Kith can be found everywhere on Pagan.
|“|| Although they are large, multicolored quadrupeds, kith bear a remarkable resemblance to the common insect. The major difference between the kith and what some consider to be their smaller cousins is size. At full maturity, a kith's head easily reaches the waist of a man. A few may grow even larger.|
Being omnivorous by nature, kith tend to live on the various plant life found throughout the land, though they prefer denser flora. Domestic kith are de-venomed and de-fanged at birth, feral kith are far more dangerous, often rearing up on their abdomens to strike with poisoned fangs.
|“|| I warn you also that newborn kith are without skeletons or armor. They work their small, soft bodies into the tiny cracks of dungeons and catacombs, so that not even rooms that appear to be securely sealed are ever truly safe from their kind.|
