Myrrhie - Iris Compiet

Myrrhies were yellow and brown colored fish native to a pool in the Valley of the urRu. Together with the Krikids, they were unique to that area, and were largely unknown to the rest of Thra.[1] Jen used to swim with them and considered them his friends. SkekTek somehow managed to aquire a specimen and attempted to create an elixir from its fins, but became violently ill after drinking it.[2]

During the Age of Power, both Myrrhies and Krikids were introduced by the newly restored Gelfling race to the rivers of the Endless Forest, so that others could admire their beauty.[1]
