We passed point Alhajár. One of the Shén spotted a flat, blanket-like thing in the water. We assumed it was something that we wouldn’t want on board. Tékuna told us that they were usually seen in deeper waters and that large ones can envelop a ship. The underside has hundreds of tiny feet that it uses to creep up the side of a ship. We took care to avoid any, especially at night. To ensure this we assigned a special night watch who would keep an eye out for these creatures. Tékuna said that they can be driven off by fire, but it was best to avoid them.
