Eels belong to the order Anguilliformes, in which there are approximately 600 species. All eels have elongated bodies with dorsal and anal fins usually running the entire length. Giant Eels, like their smaller cousins, are aggressive in the wild, but if trained can turn into excellent underwater steeds and fierce allies.

A small number of Giant Eels are of the electric variety. These eels are always a deep black in color with a bright red strip running down their dorsal fins. Trained electric eels will never discharge if they still have a rider sitting on them.
