The Kal-taar are small, extremely swift creatures[1] indigenous to Aiur.[2] They are not predators, relying on their speed to escape creatures that hunt them.[3]

During the Aeon of Strife, the Shelak Tribe bestowed spiritual importance on the kal-taar, calling upon the "spirit of kal-taar" when hunting.[3]
