Appearance and Personality
"[...] a pack of eight monstrous beasts emerged from the trees and surrounded them. They had bodies like bears and heads like tigers. Each was nine feet tall and exposed their ferocious fangs and claws."
The Kalidahs are carnivores and intend to make a meal out of the twins and their friends, but suddenly retreat when they have chased their prey to the end of the forest. They'd rather run than follow into the field of deadly poppies.
