Martax are a species of Faerie that hunt and kill humans.

Appearance[]

Martax have large bodies as big as a bear's, and a head that resembles a lion's. They have three rows of teeth sharper than a shark's.

Behaviour[]

Martax are very vicious predators. They are described as being meaner than a bear, lion and shark put together, and like to shred their victims to pieces. It is unknown whether they actually eat humans or simply kill them.

History[]

Prior to the events of the series the martax were released into Prythian, along with other dark faeries, as a result of Prythian's borders being weakened by Amarantha's curse.

A Court of Thorns and Roses[]

Feyre and her sisters go to their village market to sell her latest catch. While her sisters walk off to explore, Feyre approaches a female mercenary and offers to sell her the pelts she has. They strike up a conversation, and the mercenary mentions a recent attack on a village in the North wherein a pack of martax raided a village in the dead of night and tore half the village apart. Feyre is disturbed by the mercenary's description of the attack and the martax themselves. [1]
