A therlane (literally meaning "monster-butcher") is a type of butcher who specialises in working with dead monsters. The term is derived from a Tutin term, therilanius. They are familiar with the unique anatomies that monsters possess and have a knowledge of the various uses that monster organs and parts may fulfill. A therlane's role is to dissect the monsters accordingly with sectitheres. This expertise makes them key members of the dark trades and they are relied upon by commerce men. Skilled therlanes can command high prices for their work.
