The Shrykes are a race of half-human creatures said to inhabit the land beyond the Five Forts, east of the southern half of the Bleeding Sea and south of K'Dath. They are said to have green-scaled skin and venomous men. Maester Yandel wonders if they are truly lizard-men or men clad in the skins of lizards, or they are no more than fables, comparing them to the grumkins and snarks of Westerosi tales. Whatever the truth, even they supposedly live in terror of the city of K'Dath.
