The Podlings are a peaceful and festive race of small humanoids which live on the forests of Thra. After the near-extermination of the Gelflings, the Skeksis started to raid Podling villages and capture them to drain their life essence, which still had a rejuvenating effect on them despite not being nearly as effective as Gelfling essence. The Podlings drained of their essence became zombie-like creatures, with their skin turning pale and their black eyes turning white; and served as slaves to the Skeksis. Fortunately, they were restored to normal after the Crystal was healed.
