|First Book Appearance||"The Lake of Souls"|
The Kulashkas are a species of human-like creatures which are probably descendants of the Guardians of Blood. They have very pale skin and pink hair. They worship a massive creature named the Grotesque in the future wasteworld.
The Kulashkas seem to worship the Grotesque and will even sacrifice children to it sometimes. They seem to chant a lot and were named by Darren and Harkat over their most chanted word, 'Kulashka'.
