Dreels, or trollfingers, were river eels native to the River Reaching, particularly the area of the river between the Misty Stair waterfalls and Skull Gorge.[1]


Somewhere between green and black in color, dreels were relatively short and stocky.[1]


Dreels subsisted on algae and carrion, which helped keep the river clean. They felt quite at home in the icy waters of the River Reaching.[1]

As foodEdit

In spite of their mucus-like taste, dreels were quite nourishing. Their taste improved considerably if served properly, for example fried or pickled with herbs and spices.[1][2]

In the 1490s DR, the Cutlass inn in Luskan advertised a "breakfast special" consisting of brandy and dreels.[2]
