The thri-kreen are a race of monstrous humanoids with a similar appearance to some species of mantis.[4]


There is solid archeological evidence that the thri-kreen once claimed Stormreach as their own city. They established their own structures within the underground sections of giant ruins. What event destroyed their civilization is totally unknown.[5]

In modern-day Stormreach, the thri-kreen make excellent guides for anyone wanting to explore the jungles or underneath the city. One reason for their aptitude as guides is their immunity to the Traveler's Curse.[5]

Description & Personality[]

Thri-kreen are medium-sized humanoid figures resembling an anthropomorphized four-armed praying mantis.[4] Their favorite environments are arid grasslands. As a general rule the thri-kreen like hot and dry weather.[4]


Thri-kreen have access to psionic abilities, and are skilled combatants that make use of their four arms in battle to deadly effect.[4]

Thri-kreen do not sleep.[4] Some scholars posit that this may be because thri-kreen exist simultaneously in both the Material Plane of Eberron and Dal Quor, the Region of Dreams.[5]


Thri-kreen are hunters who revere nature. Their spiritual leaders are druids. The thri-kreen do not worship any gods.[4]

Thri-kreen form strong bonds with other individuals, which they call clutch-mates. Thri-kreen don't trust anyone outside of this small group of friends.[4]


A small number of thri-kreen live under Stormreach.[5] More are said to live in the Menechtarun desert of western Xen'drik.[6][7]
