Bas-Lag Wiki

A plesiaur, plural plesiauri, is a long-necked marine animal that inhabits the warm waters of the Swollen Ocean. During the voyage of the Terpsichoria from Iron Bay to Salkrikaltor, Bellis Coldwine spots a group of plesiauri paddling out of the shallows. Later, while on Armada, she spots lone plesiauri among the creatures that occasionally swim in the water around the city.


  • Based on their description in The Scar, Plesiauri seem to be related to the extinct, real-world family of marine reptiles, plesiosauria.
