A prowlgrin pup.

Prowlgrins were large, froglike creatures with powerful legs, thick, sensitive feet and toes, enormous, upturned mouths similar to that of sperm whales, and thick, curly beards.


Incredibly intelligent and loyal, prowlgrins were frequently used as beasts of burden, guards, and mounts. During Stormchasing voyages in the First Age of Flight, Knights Academic lowered themselves into the Twilight Woods mounted on prowlgrins. Later, during the Second Age of Flight, Freeglade Lancers patrolled, traveled, and battled sitting astride prowlgrin mounts. The prowlgrin mounts of the Freeglade Lancers would leap across the tree canopy, jumping from branch to branch, a practice known as "tree-cresting". Wild prowlgrins also migrated across the Deepwoods in this manner.

In the Third Age of Flight, prowlgrins were used as beasts of burden in the phraxmines of eastern Deepwoods. High-jumping was a sport popular in Hive.

Behavior and Breeding

Prowlgrin pups hatched from eggs, and grew to their full size within a few months, feeding on bits of offal. They loved Darkelm oil, and when their feet were coated in it, their tree-cresting ability increased.They communicated with a variety of squeals, barks, and whinnies, and purred when contented. They were scavengers, and wild prowlgrins often devoured the carcasses of creatures such as hammelhorns.

Known Types of Prowlgrins

There were several species or breeds of prowlgrin. The ones mentioned in the books were:

White Spotted

Different colours of prowlgrins were known to react or behave differently. For example, grey prowlgrins were known for having dependability, but not a lot of spirit, whilst orange prowlgrins were slightly smaller, but more skittish - sleek and fast, but harder to handle. Later, during the Third Age of Flight, grey prowlgrins were said to have the best jumping abilities.
