A mangy rat-like creature. It has large grasping jaws with many incisors. It's said in ancient Podian historical records that the Pooks manifest into this form by combining human blood with the corpses of nutria that have drowned in the East Ganges River. It measures anywhere from 14 to 28" in length. One body will often multiply into 3 or more smaller beings, thus making it hard to determine a standard size. They feed on any living thing that can be heard, and have a very hard time using other senses.
As Harshul was collecting his river bells to journey home, he was suddenly torn into pieces by a gaggle of pooks.
