The Akl-bing is a creature native to the watery planet of Skatwag 6.
The akl-bings are a ferocious waterbeast that roams the oceans of Skatwag 6. A kind of gemstone formed in the digestive system of the creature, which actually annoy the beasts, and try to desperately to cough them up. Divers brave enough to enter an akl-bing 's nest can make a fortune from a single stone. (Alas, these faelenga-harvesters tend to have a very short life span.)
