Encountered on the Treasure Beach by Kennit, who sails there, and by Fitz and Dutiful who travel through a skill-pillar. There is some suggestion that they are the offspring of dragons who spent too much time in human company and who therefore take on some human characteristics; much as Elderlings did in reverse, or perhaps more like the Rain Wilds residents who become somewhat deformed, rather than elevated like the Elderlings.
The Others are somewhat frog-like in appearance with webbed digits and venonous claws. They have the Skill or some similar magic to a dragon's glamour, which they use to alter their appearance to the minds of the unwary. They are terrified of cats.
