Scanderigs, or forgefiends as they are generally known, are creatures from the Elemental Plane of Earth who come to Golarion to feed their insatiable hunger for metallic ores of all kinds. Because of this, they are particularly dreaded by dwarves.1
A scanderig's jaws are made of a substance as hard as adamantine, allowing it to cut easily through the hardest ores and armor. When threatened, a scanderig can project a heap of red-hot slag from its mouth.
As most natives of its plane of origin, a scanderig can glide through rock and earth as easily as a fish through water, leaving no discernible trail or tunnel behind.
