      • First (and Last) Appearance of the Acharis in this series.

        First Appearance of the Shlamoofs.

        This is one of the episodes with a truly heavy tie to the original novel. In the original "The Neverending Story", the Acharis were legendary; not only for their all-consuming sorrow and intense ugliness, but also for their ability to craft beautiful filigree of an almost indestructible silvery metal. This was the only substance that could resist their tears, which were a powerful corrosive.

        The Acharis of the novel not only created the Silver City of Amarganth, but also the corrosive lake in which it floats. This is never mentioned in this series.

        In the original novel, Bastian used the Auryn to transform the sad Acharis into the happy Shlamoofs, an act which he came to regret. Here, Barktroll changes them by accident with an experimental potion.
