Behemoths were huge mammalian, furry creatures that were found in the Derlavaian continent and were extensively used for war during the Derlavaian War. A platform is placed on top of the creature, with a gun heavy gun and thick metal armor around the animal.

Algarve was the first to realize the potential of an massed behemoth attack, with infantry and dragon support. But such tactics are not operable in hot weather such as of Zuwayza as the army of Unkerlant found to its grief.

Literary Comment Edit

Behemoths take the place of tanks in the Darkness series' World War II metaphor. Biologically, the creature appears to be a type of rhinoceros.

The experience of a behemoth crewman is not documented. In contrast to the dragonflier Sabrino and the leviathan rider Cornelu, there is no behemoth-bound POV character in the series.
