Chigger fleas were windborne parasites of the desert. The term came from the Seven Cities (Bisbrha and Debrahl) language.[1]

They made use of Seven Cities' sandstorms, riding the winds in search of prey. In these conditions they were nearly invisible when seen head on, appearing only as a gray stain from the side. Those they bit were marked with red, swollen weals.[2]

Baths using cedar-chips[3] or Escura leaves were used to kill them.[4][5]

In Deadhouse GatesEdit

Kalam narrowly missed a cloud of the fleas while traveling through a sandstorm in the Estara Hills south of Ehrlitan. His pursuer Lostara Yil was not so lucky, and her face was covered with bites by the time she arrived at Ladro Keep.[6]
