For the pet, see Banekin (Pet).
"Cornered in the burning barn, these mottled gray-and-black imps with pointed ears twitching, claws still stained with Breton blood, attempted a snarl and widened their vacant, pale blue eyes to dissuade us from combat. Their tails of ridged spines lashed, as they hissed and lunged, their thin arms banging on my shield."
Grundvik Cold-Fist[src]

The Banekin are Daedric creatures that appear in The Elder Scrolls Online. They are often found in groups.
