To the other races of Erj, the steed of the suneater—colloquially known as a ‘bike’, a truncation and corruption of the suneater word vvrblbjqrq (lit. ‘(one is) to ride’)—seems almost as magic. Though merely another application of the suneaters’ grasp of combustion, the ability to traverse vast distances in less time than would take a yatac or other pack animal is inexplainable, and terrifying, to most.
