An adult vahti is a stout, solid creature with a surprisingly pleasant, playful personality despite its appearance and the stench of rotten flesh that clings to it. This isn't to say that they can't or won't bite with their long teeth, an injury that usually results in necrosis. The red slits on their shoulders show a glimpse of the pulsing flesh beneath and glow at night, flashing in patterns that the vahti use to communicate. Vahti are mostly loners who only come together with their own kind to mate, and leave their eggs in random places to be picked up by magi or - rarely, given their terrible taste - eaten by predators. However, some magi report that vahti they encounter in graveyards seem to want to play fetch, though they have a tendency to offer bones as their toy of choice.

Vahti are also known as graveyard sentinels, for their usual occupation of guarding the resting places of the dead. Generally slow-moving, they're still capable of surprising bursts of speed and agility. Magi who visit graveyards often leave small tokens of rotten meat and dying flowers to show the vahti that they mean no harm being in their territory. If there are no other options, magi can safely sleep in a graveyard guarded by a vahti, but should be aware that the graveyard's sentinel will often come over to stroke its extra fingers through the sleeping magi's hair.
