Echateres are large herbivorous mammals[1] with tusks, pointed hooves, and large antlers. Found mainly in Wrothgar, they serve the Orcs as livestock and beasts of burden. They provide meat, fur,[2] vellum,[3] and milk for the Orcs.[1][4][5] Echateres are stubborn and ornery.[6] Those found in the wild are usually hostile, using their tusks and antlers when in battle, with capabilities to send shockwaves through the ground using their immense weight.[7]

Young echateres are called echalettes.[6] They are generally docile and fawn-like.[8] Badger Ruff Echalettes are black and white striped echalettes that are exceptionally irritable and fierce for young echateres. They've been known to chase away sabre cats.[8] During the spring, echalettes are occasionally born with temporarily spotted fur that helps them camouflage in the sun-dappled forests. This pattern fades as the echatere matures.[9]

Echateres are herbivores. They are known to eat sedge grass, snow truffles, and echatere moss.[10][11] They are also prized by Orcs for their ability to find and dig for snow truffles.[12]



  • The Orcs of Wrothgar are said to have herded unspecified "shaggy giant centipedes",[13] although some believe these accounts to be mythical.[14]
