Bas-Lag Wiki

A Yag is a type of fire elementals. They are relatively easy to summon, but only in small forms. Larger yags require skilled Thaumaturges to summon and stoke.


Yags are described as looking like crosses between great apes and dogs made of flames, bounding in a motion between loping and burning.

Use in Combat[]

New Crobuzon Elementarii are skilled in the use of yags against opponents. Like all elementals, yags can be directed with Gnoscourges, occultly-enhanced whips.
