Fauns[1] are a goat-like race of the Night Fae Covenant in Ardenweald.

Notes

  • The Warcraft III manual and the Warcraft RPG describe dryads as having the lower bodies of woodland fauns.[2][3][4][5][6] In World of Warcraft, Shael'dryn uses "faun" as a term for young dryads.[7] Based on the context, these uses of "faun" may simply be a misspelling of fawn, a juvenile deer.
  • Fauns use the same skeleton and animations as female draenei.
  • In Roman mythology, fauns are bipeds with goat-like legs and goat horns on their heads. They are the Roman equivalent of the ancient Greek satyrs.
