They have been encountered within a desecrated temple located in the ruined warrior city of Kharnek, apparently serving as the guardians of a gigantic ruby gemstone. Scuttling from the shadows, they possessed Human torsos atop four insect-like legs. Apparently once Human, but now enslaved by Chaos, the spark of humanity had long since departed from them and the Ishkarim's eyes were described as icy and dead.
Their bodies were particularly tough, and afforded them excellent protection against injury. In game terms, any damage inflicted upon them was reduced by 1 stamina point as a result of their osseous bodies.
- The evil, mutating forces used to create the Ishkarim are probably similar to those which created the Accursed, who are part insect and also serve a Demon Prince.
