As those who have completed A Shadow Over Ashdale know, the Crassians are hybrid creatures of Squid and Crab who reproduce using humans incased in crassian eggs.

But What exactly are they?!?

I believe that the Crassians are a predator race that live as the primary citizens, In The Underwater City, Under Xau-Tak himself.

Xau-Tak is known to be heavily related to the Underwater city and to the seas. The Crassians follow Agoroth, a giant crassian who looks very similar to a Karamthulu/Crab. What if Agoroth is the 1st crassian, and is an avatar of Xau-Tak?

We know that Shadow Over Ashdale is in the 6th age, so Agoroth could very well be Xau-Tak's tendrils surfacing on Gielinor,

Let me know what you think.
Peace.

Hector claimed that he perfected his curse and then began summoning Crassians to his aid after asking Myrtle to see how far he's come... The implication is quite clearly that he created the crassians.[/quote] No, a simple wizard casual like Hector cannot just create a new type of creature, considering that they have a hierarchy and a leader, Hector must have only made a curse to warp people to be part crassian using elements of their reproduction system. Crassians have been noted to be 'sleeping' under Ashdale and i highly doubt that Hector was alive when it was built.
