Great Boars had a very special place in the Woodwose culture. They were only found in the far north where the steppes gave way to the dark, coniferous forests. Adult boars could reach the height of a grown man and weigh a few hundred pounds, their husks were impossibly hard and sharp and thick hide was known to stop arrows. But the Woodwose Tribe was not interested in hunting those infamously deadly animals. Sometime in the past one of their ancestors was brave enough to actually domesticate one and in the process got themselves an incredibly loyal companion. Since then it was a rite of passage for the greatest of their warriors to find their boar and bring him back to the village. Boars couldn’t have been broken the way some of the horses are being trained. To ride one the warrior needed to bond with the animal, and form a connection based on mutual respect and the likeness of spirits.
Oh, isn’t this boar just the cutest with his happy little face? Well, I bet he can be just as dangerous to anyone unlucky enough to become its rider enemy.
