Girtablilus are tauric creatures, their scaled humanoid torsos surmounting the bodies of monstrous scorpions. They are obsessively devoted to ancient history in general, and to their own ancestors in particular. They seek out archaeological treasures of all kinds, zealously guarding them from grave robbers and relic hunters, piously protecting their charges far from civilized eyes.

All girtablilus share a zeal for religion, although the objects of veneration vary from clan to clan.

Some girtablilu tribes still serve long-forgotten deities, preserving the divinities’ names and holy rituals. Others embrace religions derived from prehistoric worship, devoted to the idea of gods that once were or might never have been. Their leaders are always mystics responsible for the tribe’s religious observances and laws. Tradition and service to the group are important. Those who violate tribal beliefs are killed or exiled into the harsh wasteland. Girtablilus believe that no sacrifice in life (including death in the service of the gods) goes unrewarded in the hereafter; this belief makes them fierce and fearless fighters.

A girtablilu is 13 feet long and weighs 800 pounds.
