Shyrack are terrible creatures that roam the caves and tombs of the Sith world of Korriban. This avian predator vaguely resembles a bat, with large lathy wings and sharp teeth. Shyrack are blind and get around their caves with a combination of scent and echolocation. Individually, Shyrack are clumsy and slow moving, and individually, they are considered relatively easy vermin to eradicate. However, Shyrack Swarms sometimes gather and hunt, which are exceedingly dangerous.

Shyrack Encounters Edit

Shyrack are most commonly found on Korriban but have been found on planets throughout The Outer Rim. A single Shyrack is a threat for a low-level heroes, but the encounter can be made more challenging by turning it into a Shyrack Swarm. Shyrack are consummate hunters, undeterred by the darkness of their cavern homes.
