Smoke eels are a type of ghost created through the amalgamation of violent or unhappy memories that much like normal ghosts have managed to slip out of the khert. When smoke eels are in the real world they can possess particulate matter such as smoke or water vapor shaping this matter into the form of an eel. Smoke eels are attracted to sources of human suffering. Much like regular ghosts smoke eels exist temporarily and will eventually be sucked back into the khert. Because of their cultural impact on the people of Kasslyne the eating of actual eels is considered taboo with some exceptions.
