The diminutive reptiles known as efts are a common sight in Bibiki Bay. With a prominent dorsal spike, a crocodile-like jaw, and their constant location near water, it's safe to assume that they feed primarily on fish and crustaceans along the beach, but may occasionally snack on unattended bird eggs and unsuspecting rarabs. Much to the delight of beach-going adventurers, these little lizards are not aggressive, but they will defend one another if they see one of their own attacked. Don't be fooled by their small stature; with needle-like teeth, a powerful tail and toxic saliva, they can easily overwhelm a cocky adventurer.

With all that in mind, why would anyone attack them? Eft skin is remarkably durable and lightweight, which is why it is applied with animas to create a unique armor set designed to combat the emptiness. It may not sound like much, but these little aquatic lizards lend a helping hand, in this case skin, to stopping the spread of the emptiness.

[edit] Historical Background

Eft is the term for an immature newt. Newts are brightly-colored salamanders. They are known for their ability to regenerate limbs, eyes, and spinal cords. Many produce toxins through skin secretions. Newts were originally known as efts, but at some point in the history of the word, it came to be spelled euft, and then later ewt, but eventually became newt from there. Now, eft only refers to just-metamorphosed juveniles.
