The first seven Vraal were unleashed by the Shadow Lord when Adin fought his army at the plains of Hira. Only the Jalis knights had the strength to stand against them in fair combat, and were eventually able to kill them all. After the battle, the Shadow Lord keeps the Vraal chained underneath the Shadow Areana, where they fight prisoners and Grey Guards for sport.

Vraal are highly aggressive creatures, created by the Shadow Lord for the sole purpose of fighting. They live to fight and do not know the meaning of retreat. They consider fighting for their lives as sport, and constantly seek out more powerful and resilient enemies. If their eyes and ears are injured, they will fly into a blind rage.
Vraals look like large bipedal lizards with hooves for feet. They are taller and broader than the average man, covered in dull green and yellow-striped scales. With hulking shoulders, powerful arms, claws like knives and lashing tails, they are a menacing sight to behold.
Although not visible until opened, Vraals' mouths are full of long, needle-sharp teeth. Vraals have a pair of burning orange eyes beneath the protective ridges and folds at the front of their faces, as well as a set of eyes on either side of its head. Their side eyes does not see as well as their front eyes, but they allow it to see to either side and spot prey coming up from behind.
In the anime, the Vraal's appearance was changed greatly. It had a more triangular head, no visible teeth, and the claws on its hands were greatly reduced. A single eye rested inside the Vraal's throat. The tail was also longer than depicted in the book, and was the primary weapon.
Wild Vraal dwell in the Shadowlands and around Dread Mountain. The majority are kept chained underneath the Shadow Arena.
Vraal are carnivourous predators, eating Dread Gnomes, humans, Kin and any other animal or creature unfortunate enough to encounter them.
