 Khezu is a species of wyvern that live in the cold dampness of caves. Their pale white flesh is very moist, which keeps the creature's skin from drying, and is also very easy to get scratched. On its body, you can see quite a lot of small scratches that probably came from being attacked by other creatures or even by scraping it on jagged rocks and stalagmites. The Khezu has visible veins on its pale skin, just like most cave dwellers do. The Khezu's skin constantly needs moisture, so it tends to live in wet, and humid areas such as the Swamp. Living in dark caves, the Khezu's eyes have regressed greatly, though it is made up for with their superb sense of smell. A layer of fat helps to keep them warm and prolong their time without eating, as there is not much in the way of wildlife roaming in the Khezu's choice habitat.

Khezus are hermaphrodites, meaning an individual is both male and female. To reproduce they paralyze a creature and inject their young (Khezu whelps). The Whelps grow inside their victim until it dies or they are strong enough to leave.

Although the Khezus are cave dwellers, they go out if they please, or if food inside grows too scarce. A Khezu outside a cave will fall prey to bigger wyverns, since the bigger wyverns can see the Khezu easily in the sun, while the Khezu still needs to smell the predator. Inside caves, the Khezu has an advantage, since it can cling to the ceiling, and smell the opponent easier with less scents to distinguish while the opponent has trouble finding the Khezu in the darkness. The Khezu's habitat is often located near active sources of water; however, this is typical only in high humidity areas, such as swamps, jungles and the like. It would seem that the Khezu only lives for parts of the year in these warmer areas and migrate to the Snowy Mountains during the breeding season. It is there that the Khezus insert their Whelps into prey. Juvenile Khezus are called Whelps.
