Bathoggs are commonly known for their uncanny resemblance to their close relatives: pigs. However, they tower over their pink-skinned brothers. These creatures are great in size, hitting four feet in height, several feet thick, and a staggering five hundred pounds when they reach their adult age. The Bathoggs have powerful tusks with a cone-like shape, used in fights and during the mating process. While these creatures surely are a sight to behold, they’re docile creatures, occasionally kept in captivity and bred by farmers.

History

The first encounter with the Bathoggs happened when Elves began traveling from Daendroc to Ithania. The Bathoggs were initially hunted down due to their strong pelt. Later, they also became knownfor their meat, which is still considered a Regalian delicacy. Due to this, Bathogg hunting became regular practice ever since their earliest discovery, and many began to domesticate these giant pigs. Tame Bathoggs have since become a common occurrence in farmlands. It is known that Orc tribes keep tame Bathoggs as house guards and friends, naming them much like Humans would name a household pet.

Physical Appearance

These astounding creatures boast a brown fur with a hardened pelt, though a rarer, more hunted subspecies instead have a grey pelt. The Bathoggs have powerful tusks with a cone like shape, used in fights and during the mating of the Bathoggs, where the male with the most powerful tusk 'wins' the female. The eyes of a Bathogg have no variation, and are almost always seen to be dark brown in color. The largest distinction that sets females apart from male Bathoggs are their excessively smaller tusks. Due to this, females rarely hunt or join in on fights, and tend to be less aggressive than the males.

Diversity

While most know the large, brown-pelted Bathogg that roam the plains of Ithania, there is another, vastly uncommon breed of Bathogg. They possess ashen-grey pelts, boasting a slightly larger size when reaching adulthood. Although, the grey Bathogg are becoming increasingly rare, due to the demands for its pelt.

Life Span and Development

With a lifespan of fifteen to twenty years, the development of a Bathogg takes longer than the average pig, simply due to their enormous size. Starting out as miniscule, hairless piglets, the Bathogg only reaches their full size at the age of eight, which is approximately six feet for males, and five feet, seven inches for females.

Mental Overview

Traveling in packs of up to fifty, Bathogg are a calm and peaceful creature, despite their intimidating size. Given their docile nature towards Ailor and other humanoid races, many Bathogg have been taken into captivity. In fact, the population of tamed Bathogg outweigh the population of the remaining wild ones.

Territory and Groupings

The remaining wild Bathogg are nomadic, wandering throughout the Ithanian countrysides. High grass plains are their natural habitat throughout their constant migration, and is also where they hunt for their food. They are omnivores by nature they eat any fruit that grows from bushes, andsmaller animals by smashing them with their tusks.

During the mating season, they migrate to the swamplands, fighting rival herds for the muddiest home. Throughout this season, the males only eat swamp fruits, leaving any prey they hunted to the female in order to prove their ability to provide for a family.

Trivia

  • The Bathogg tusk is normally sold as a house decoration, along with their heads. Hundreds of regals may be exchanged for these, drawing in a decent amount of hunters.
  • They have an extremely sensitive nose, allowing them to sniff out their prey and track small creatures across the plains.
