- Amygdala (plural: Amygdalae) means "Almond" in Latin and "Almond" or "Almond Tree" in Greek (ἀμυγδάλη).
- Amygdala is a bilateral neural structure set deep within the limbic system of the brain. It is thought to be responsible for learning and organizing fear responses. Amygdalectomy - surgical removal of this structure - is associated with reduced capacity to learn memories related to fear and behaving fearfully, and the shape of Amygdala's head (and the heads of the other beings of similar appearance) roughly corresponds with the shape of this region in the brain.
- The Arcane Beam can damage both the Hunters and enemies, this includes Adversaries (invaders).
- Its eyes are visible when it fires Arcane Beams, making the belief of Great Ones having many eyes accurate.
- The opening in their chest opens and closes af if breathing. Though maybe they are winking very slowly.
- They don't seem to have the orange eyes of Amygdala in their hands, chest and feet. (needs confirmation)
- The Lesser Amygdalae become visible if the hunter has at least 40 insight.
- Patches the Spider speaks before the Amygdala sends the Hunter to the Lecture Hall: "Oh Amygdala, have mercy on the poor bastard!"
