“Traptrix” Lore from the Structure Deck

But still, what the cute girls themselves are is a bit ambigious.

Ecological Research Report of the Predatory Lifeforms “Traptrix”

The mysterious lifeforms known as the “Traptrix” dwell deep within the forests of the south, consuming any creature that loses its way through the forest. As soon as their existence became public knowledge, countless researchers, fascinated by their unique form of predation, began to pop up, resulting in rapid progress concerning research into these creatures. And in recent years, many new species have been discovered. In honor of those who came before who dedicated their bodies and souls to “The Traptrix” and advanced research on them at great cost, we present the results of their work in this paper.
