A gargantuan monster living in the darkest depths since ancient times, Gaismagorm's rock-like forearms boast tenacious strength, which allows it to burrow undergournd. It has a symbiotic relationship with the Qurio and feeds on their life force for energy. Once it has chosen a place to nest, it collapses the surrounding rock bed to create an opening to the surface. The opening forms a massive crater in which it releases the Qurio through.
