The Semprada resembled squat, bipedal amphibians with broad shoulders. Their skin was similar to a salamander and came in various green, gray, and blue shades. Dull orange and black spotting were common on their amphibious bodies. Two tympanic membranes lined the sides of the bulbous heads resembled the gills of a fish. Flabby jowls hung like a fu mancho from their bulbous heads. Their large eyes gave them exceptional night vision, allowing them to traverse their dark, subterranean lairs with ease. The lateral lines that ran across their cranial ridge acted as an advanced sensory system that allowed the Semprada to detect changes in air pressure. Females were larger than males.
The Semprada fashioned themselves in cumbersome, bell-shaped plate armor of dirty gold. Priests and priestesses wore big, oval masks that completely covered their oddly-shaped heads.

Priestess Eeoq of the Semprada sacrificed the Light Crown of The Mother, Shepherdess Okebah, in a bloody ritual beneath the Aashal Tureo. The Shaylos amplified her final moments of agony and marred the surrounding landscapes in a fog of darkness. They reveled in her sacrifice with maddening worship. Giving glory to The Mother and Father, priest Qwitawu led an entourage of his fellow clergy in celebration throughout the Aashal Tureo. Horrified by the grotesque act, Mundaaka and Aiseina confronted the mad priest and his followers. Claiming her sacrifice honored The Mother and Father, priest Qwitawu invited the shepherds to join in their celebration. Fearing further desecration, Mundaaka placed Qwitawu and his followers under arrest while awaiting a verdict from the Vlauk.
