: Another part of the difference is that the 'krids aren't
: soldiers. They're not even human. They kill out of
: pure (evil, admittedly) animal instinct. The Heron
: Gaurd very well may be the best warriors in the world,
: but that doesn't mean that if you drop them in shark
: infested waters, they'll emerge victorious. The 'krids
: are simply too fast, too vicious, and too gaddam
: impossible to kill for any lone (normal/non-legendary)
: human to beat. They're demonic killing machines.
: Another part of the reason is the demon part of them.
: They're "nightmares made flesh," literally a
: kind of living demon. A normal human probably can't
: beat a demon, y'know?
So I take it that Alric is legendary for the purpose of this. I think the "nightmares made flesh" refers to how terrifying they are not that they are litterally demons (which they are but not in that sense)
Still the Heron Guard should be able to kill 'em 1 on 1. (since myrks are more common then herons it's still not unfair). I'm not entirely sure they can. A "normal" Heron Guard is probably better the a Warrior Hero (if such beings exist). So I think they are heroic by natue of being Heron Guards.
