Species Compendium: Primozoa

Total Species Diversity: 135

Setup

Each species is divided up into six categories.

  • Name is self-explanatory.
  • Appearances is a visual depiction of that species.
  • Status is a short description of their status as a species.
  • Unique Features is a brief description of any notable facts, behaviors, or traits that the species is known to exhibit.
  • Location is where the species can be found. Some species appear in numerous zones, so I simplify this down to just mean "<continent/planet>". If you'd like to find all species within a particular zone, the sorting feature doesn't work too well. I suggest using Ctrl+F and searching that way.
  • Sources include all the resources I used to gather this information. NPCs are NPCs found in-game. Quests are specific quests that involve additional lore for the species. Other includes any other mentions, such as in-game books, published novels or visual depictions.

Please Note!

Please do not make major edits to this page. Minor corrections are accepted and appreciated.

This list is the second entry in what will be the most complete species list ever created for WoW. Please keep in mind, I am one person. I miss things, I get some things wrong, and I'm not omniscient. This is why I've listed sources. Check for yourself if you're wishing to use anything here for roleplay or serious lore discussions. If you find anything incorrect, or discover a new type of species (or argue against me on what I decided was or wasn’t a species) that is not on this list, please let me know and I will do what I can to add it in or at least hear you out.

  • You can send in-game mail to Zanzulu on Horde-side Wyrmrest Accord.
  • You can leave a post on my talk page, found here.
  • You can add my Discord and send me a direct message here: Forgotten Goat#2933

(Preemptive) FAQ

How Do You Choose What to Add?

That’s a complicated question. Even in real life, there is no clear cut definition of what defines a species, I have been introduced to 35 species concepts alone (Though only 3 have any weight) during my time as a biology student in university. Typically, if it’s a breed (variant of a domesticated animal) it is not a species, of course sometimes blizzard will call something a breed but it is also mentioned being seen in the wild so that means its a species. Typically, if it occurs in the wild, is distinct in range from similarly named mobs and doesn’t typically have prefixes that might be attributed to being a simple descriptor I consider it a species.

Why do you add some species that weren't added to the game?

Mostly, I add a lot of individual NPCs that exist within the game files but never made it in-game for flavor. It adds greater diversity of species for people to use in their roleplay and there exist species that we simply don't see in-game that we know exist in the lore (Like Arachnathids) so I basically often treat these never added NPCs as perhaps like a jaguar in the real world: secretive and not too often seen or just little-reported. In the end I think their addition enriches the species list rather than detracts from it (and some of these mobs have really cool names so it's almost a shame not to) and I hope readers will mostly agree. Every one of these species will say so in their "unique features" section so everybody who reads it is made aware as to the status of the npc.

Why Do Some Species Have Red Sources?

A lot of the newer NPCs, such as the mobs in a new expansion, have not yet been added to Wowpedia. Please keep in mind that the majority of content created on this website is done by a small team of volunteers; none of which are being paid, and there is a lot of work to do. In the meantime, please use Wowhead for your sources if the ones here appear in red text.

How Can I Roleplay Knowing These?

You can either say your character did their own research into these species and studied them on their own, or, I will be progressing and RPing that my character, a forest troll named Grazz’bek, has published this guide in book form and is written by me from his point of view (Meaning it is in character in writing form). You are more than welcome to say your character has purchased this book, I just ask the courtesy of mentioning that Grazz’bek is the author. :)

Special Thanks and Mention

The former (as of now) WoW player known as “Cannibal” is owed his due thanks for giving me the format for this guide. While I helped him with my background in zoology to form the categories, this was originally his undertaking before he quit the game. Having been involved in the process I requested that I be allowed to finish it when he made the announcement he was leaving the game making sure that both his work and mine saw more than the light of a google doc. Hope you return to Azeroth one day, Beans ^_^

Thanks to Petopia and WarcraftPets.com for giving me permission to use some of their images. Certain models and skins do not show up properly in model viewer and I am able to use their facsimile images from their site to keep in line with the image format

Changes from previous volume

Each species grouping now has seven subsections to the profile before the species listing:

General Description: self-explanatory; general description of physical attributes and miscellaneous information

Social Behavior: General patterns of social behavior of the group. Do they operate in packs? Are they solitary? Any unique behaviors in their social interactions?

Reproduction: Facts about their reproductive habits and mechanisms. Are they a sexual or asexual species? Are they polygamous or monogamous? Viviparous or Oviparous?

Defensive Mechanisms: General tactics and abilities a group might use when hunting or fending off a predator. Anything aside from the typical scratch and bite

Biology: Will often be left blank, any information we know about the inner workings of the animal.

Diet: What do they eat? Do they specialize on any particular food?

Location: general description of where members of the group might be located.

Anezoan

Anezoans are animal species with strong ties in their origin and biology to the element of air. Currently, of all the elemental fauna Anezoans are the least diverse having only one major taxonomic lineage be described. Granted, this might have more to do with how Skywall remains one of the least explored of the elemental planes being second only to the Abyssal Maw (the elemental plane of water) and also being arguably the hardest to traverse by mortals.

Total Species Diversity: 6

Storm Wyrm

Storm Wyrms[1] or Storm Dragons (Which I will refrain from calling them due to the name mix-up with the recently discovered Storm Dragons of Stormheim and Jorundall) are a family of elemental dragons seen as the physical embodiment of the storm with bodies that crackle with lightning and roars that reverberate like thunder.[2] To this day, despite a number of years following the Cataclysm when they were first discovered, little is known, or at least published, about the habits and biology of these majestic beasts.

Defensive Mechanisms
Storm Wyrms are at one with the storm capable of summoning powerful gales of wind with the mere flap of their wings[3] and lightning from their breath.[4]

Diet
Carnivore

Distribution
Storm Wyrms are native to Skywall.

Total Species Diversity:47

Gyreworm

Worm-shaped beasts composed of a series of stone rings and shards of crystalline minerals surrounding an inner cloud of fine dust. Gyreworms are simple creatures driven solely to tunnel through the earth consuming the rocks and minerals they come across (much like the Goren of Draenor but with a great deal less...complexity in their behavior). How they digest and corrode the stone they eat is not agreed upon but their relatively simple make-up (and one bout of being inside of one) has lead me to believe that rocks are first broken up by the sharp-edged crystals that line their mouths and then continuously worn down by the dust funnel in their inner chamber. To a flesh-and-blood mortal, this digestion doesn’t do much besides a few cuts and chaffing by the microscopic shards of mineral within the dust storm.[12] The digested minerals are most likely then redeposited (through some unknown machination) back into gyreworm’s outer body as the rings and crystal shards get worn down by their constant tunneling and bodily rotation.

Social Behavior
Gyreworms are mostly solitary driven by their own desire to consume more and more minerals

Defensive Mechanisms
Peculiarly, some gyreworms are able to produce acidic “saliva” that they can spit out. This runs contrary to how their biology is known to work, but nature sometimes offers us headscratching mysteries to uncover.[13][14]

Biology
While I am no physicist, gyreworm bodies are seemingly kept together by opposing magnetic forces within the crystal shards and stone rings giving their bodies the eternal rotation. Each stone ring rotates in an opposite direction to the ones bordering it hinting to a never ending cycle of trying to meet appropriate poles to each other...Or it could just be elemental magic mumbo jumbo.

Diet
As is stated above. gyreworms feed upon potent rocks and minerals

Distribution
Gyreworms are commonly found in Deepholm but can be found in shallow and deep underground caves throughout Azeroth.

Name Appearances Status Unique Features Location Sources
Cavern Burrower Uncommon and local Solitary ambush predators that patrol beneath underground mushroom fields. Cavern Burrowers form a symbiotic relationship with the shale stalker species of shale spider that skitter around the mushroom fields being able to communicate to nearby individuals through sonic vibrations if in need of assistance with a particularly difficult prey item. For their aid, it is presumed that the shale stalkers in turn will get some of the hunt if it is successful, otherwise the only benefactor of the interaction would be the cavern burrower. Alternative hypotheses exist for this inter-geozoan species interaction but I find this one the most probable. An extra note. To adapt to their switching to less mineral-based diet, cavern burrowers have modified their crystal teeth to be easily replaced like a shark’s and will spin their mouth ring like a machine-gun turret to fire the crystal teeth at their prey. Underground cave systems such as the [Forgotten Depths] beneath the Throne of Thunder in Pandaria NPCs[15]

Colossal Gyreworm Rare An enormous species likely responsible for the carving out of the tunnels of the Crumbling Depths Given the amount of stone individuals of this species most likely need to digest to maintain their massive bodies, I assume these species can never reliably be found in one place and are scattered throughout Deepholm NPCs[18]
                                                                                                                         
Common Gyreworm Common Type species. Large individuals change color from the typical teal to a red. Common Gyreworms tunnel just below the surface in the Scoured Reach and within the cave system the Crumbling Depths NPCs[19][20][21]

Endurite Gyreworm Common Like common gyreworms, endurite gyreworms change color at large sizes probably from greater saturation with the namesake mineral they carry within their core. This species avoids coming above ground only appearing when enough vibrations are made in the earth to agitate them. Endurite might have corrosive properties to mortal flesh due to the caustic spit they possess. Endurite Gyreworms tunnel beneath the Jagged Wastes of Deepholm NPCs[22][23]

Leyworm Locally Common A specialist species that feeds exclusively on mana crystals. Curiously, this species is relatively communal, sharing in the creation and expansion of their tunnels as they search for large deposits of their preferred food. Leyworms are transient, only appearing when finding a substantial source of food. However, they are frequently known to appear in the Leyhollow of Azsuna, Broken Isles NPCs[25]

Quests[34]

Azerite Worm

A (potentially) recent radiation of the gyreworm family. It could be these newly discovered species have always been here and were only driven up above ground by the wounding of the planet, but if not then that means gyreworms speciate at an incredibly fast pace when faced with a new niche to occupy.

Distribution
Azerite worms can typically be found wherever there are great quantities of Azerite or Azerite disturbances.

Shalebiter Uncommon They are known to occur at an area of Kezan called the MOTHERLODE!!...Goblins and their naming conventions. NPCs[38]

Kyparite Worm

A second, older radiation of gyreworms. These gyreworms adapted to specialize on the large globs of amber secreted by the giant kypari trees of western Pandaria. Strangely, kyparite worms are shown to have exceedingly high rates of growth unusual to most organisms (which might be why all species except for the amber parasite are larger than the average gyreworm species) but not even the native mantid are aware of what caused this adaptation.[39]

Distribution
Kyparite worms are dependent upon the kypari trees and thus are found exclusively (so far) in western Pandaria.

Amber Parasite Data Deficient It eats flesh and will pursue it with ravenous intent.

NPCs[40]
                                                                                                                         
Amber Rocktunneler Rare A large rarely seen species, presumably lives deep within the earth and the only known sightings are due to the harmonic technologies of the Mantid being used to drive it up above ground. It is assumed these gyreworms tunnel deep beneath the Dread Wastes only appearing above-ground when exposed to certain frequencies in vibration. NPCs[41]
                                                                                                                         
Kypari Crawler Locally Common Like the cavern burrower species of typical gyreworm, this species possesses the ability to shoot crystal shards from within its body at an attacker, but notably by use of amber instead of the typical crystallized mineral. kypari crawlers inhabit the island named after the kypari tree Zan'vess NPCs[42]

Spells[43]

                                                                                                                         
Kyparite Uncommon A word to the reader, this species was not named by typical sentients (A friendly village of sprites in fact) and that is why it shares the exact same name as the kypari amber. These gyreworms have a similar attack strategy to the tanzanite borer species of the Broken Isles, but will enter a stage of vulnerability (possibly because of the difference in makeup between the two species) kyparites tunnel just below the earth in the region of the Dread Wastes called Rikkilea NPCs[44]

Shale spider

Out of all elemental organisms, I would hazard to guess that shale spiders are among the most commonly encountered by people whether commonfolk or otherwise.

Social Behavior
Shale spiders are largely social creatures occurring in pack to outright swarms (Though the why as to this trait evolving befuddles me). Curiously, more solitary shale spider species show lower levels of aggression. Possibly greater number density increases competition between individuals?

Reproduction
Shale spiders are known to make nests[45] but the exact method of their reproduction remains a mystery

Defensive Mechanisms
Surprisingly durable and ferocious[46], shale spiders may rapidly bash at hostile entities.[47]

Diet
Shale spiders largely eat rocks but I have on good authority by many hunters that some species will not turn a blind eye to flesh if presented[48][49]

Distribution
Like gyreworms, shale spiders are said to be “native” to Deepholm (even though the elemental planes were created to house the elementals rather than their point of origin), but can be found in a number of places throughout Azeroth

Total Species Diversity: 23

Elementium Spinner Locally Common These shale spiders will eat elementium and process the ore to spin webs out of, not only that but their stone fangs actually carry potent venom. Elementium Spinners are no doubt widespread and simply are only seen in caves where their food source is also found like the Elementium Depths in the Twilight Highlands NPCs[72]

Greenstone Gorger Common A typically harmless species with a proclivity for Jade, and will turn aggressive in the presence of it. To drive off perceived competition for their preferred food source they will fire off a volley of crystal shards from their backs. They inhabit underground caves in the Jade Forest of Pandaria, miners may accidentally dig into nests of these such as with the case of Greenstone Quarry NPCs[77][78][79]

Shale Stalker Locally Common These shale spiders skitter around underground mushroom gardens that are patrolled by a species of gyreworm known as a Cavern Burrower. While what the cavern burrower gets out of this relationship can be detailed in the entry on that species earlier on the volume, the nature of the mushroom gardens in the relationship is unclear. Possible hypotheses include possible cover from underground predators (though what would eat a shale spider beyond possibly a gyreworm is something I lack an answer to at this moment), another possible reason is the shale spiders use it for cover in instances of prey ambush, and lastly the possibility that the shale spiders feed upon the mushrooms and the cavern burrower defends against competition for the resource. It’s a fascinating dynamic nonetheless and one I think that warrants an extended field study. Shale stalkers make their homes in the deep underground caves below the Isle of Thunder such as the [Forgotten Depths] NPCs[90]

Spells[97]

Stone dragon

Elemental dragonkin of earth. Unlike their storm wyrm analogues from Skywall, stone drakes look much more like the drakes of the dragonflights with the horns and spikes being swapped for crystals as well as the fact of their stony hides.

Social Behavior
Stone dragons are colonial beasts that form large roosts lead by a matriarchal broodmother. The matriarch maintains her position most likely by being the strongest and largest individual and then subsequently producing the most offspring.[98] It is a common trend of evolution that more complex social behavior often leads to higher intelligence and the trend seems to hold for stone drakes as while they are seemingly non-sentient they do adhere to a dominance hierarchy according to strength.[99] They do not discriminate on strength either, so long as an individual no matter what they are displays a degree of power over a stone drake they can be made to heel and it is through that method that many seasoned adventurers have managed to take to the skies on these mighty beasts. Take heed though that stone dragons are fickle and can need reminding of their place.[100]

Reproduction
Stone dragons lay eggs like most other dragons[101] and form monogamous pairs[102]

Defensive Mechanisms
Stone dragons are capable of breath attack just like their analogues.[103][104] While typically this is of small bits of stone they are known to breathe fire.[105]

Diet
Stone dragons are carnivorous.[106]

Distribution
Stone dragons are endemic to Deepholm.

Breaker

Goren

Bipedal creatures with overlapping rocky plate-like osteoderms[118] on their back and a flawless matrix of scales[119] largely associated with the Breakers of Draenor (though the exact relation they have is unconfirmed and will remain so unless we reforge a connection with the alternate Draenor) darting beneath the feet of the lumbering Gronn and Magnaron. Goren are so far considered to be one species, so for the purpose of highlighting their diversity I have split the species into twenty seven distinct subspecies.

Social Behavior
Goren are colonial creatures that dig through the earth forming massive cave networks in their search for food.[120]

Reproduction
Very reptilian in nature, Goren are known to lay eggs.[121]

Defensive Mechanisms
Common abilities featured by the Goren include the ability to shoot the crystalline growths from their hides as projectiles[122] and the acidic spit[123][124] dripping out of their maws as well as the ability to curl up into balls and roll like a wheel.[125] Many subspecies produce larger amounts of acid at smaller sizes often slicking their backs with the toxic substances they produce.[126][127] This could be a defensive mechanism against predators but that begs the question of what predators a goren would have.

Biology
Goren exhibit continuous growth, limited in size only by the amount of food they have available and lifespan meaning that given sufficient nourishment the normally dwarf to human sized beasts can reach an enormous height as seen in the case of the individual called Oregorger.[128] Their stomach acids evaporate into a chamber of putrid-smelling corrosive gasses within their gut[129] which might be tied to their acidic saliva. The only thing this cauldron is known to not digest is highly valuable gems which will be excreted as waste by the Goren.[130]

Diet
Their diet itself is another marked character to their biology seeking out and consuming potent ore, minerals, crystals, and even elementals which they absorb the magical properties in digestion to add to their own power[131] which can most commonly be seen expressed in the crystalline growths on their hides.[132] They are well-adapted to sniffing out sources of great elemental power, converging on specific sites and even shaman like flies to a corpse.[133][134] Goren are not picky though, and will eat nearly anything their extremely corrosive stomach acids[129] can digest including flesh if given the opportunity.[135]

Distribution
Goren are native to Draenor, but they exhibit the greatest abundances in places with strong Breaker activity such as northern Gorgrond and Magnarok in Frostfire Ridge.

Phytozoan

Phytozoans are weird. Animals with plant and fungal convergence in their physiology (and by that I mean some of their physiology is literally plant and fungus). Needless to say the myriad species of phytozoa (most of which are draenic which makes sense given the planet’s history) are not solely influenced by evolution but also heavily by the element of Spirit

Total Species Diversity: 25

Brambleback

Bramblebacks (also known as bramblebears) are among the stranger beasts I have come across. Influenced by the deep and enigmatic magic of Drustvar[194] these bears appear (and probably are) part plant with limbs like tightly coiled tree roots, heads like a carved wooden mask and thick manes of fur made out of leaves. As of now almost all of these beasts are current afflicted by the curse of the drustvar coven[195][196]

Social Behavior
Like typical bears, bramblebacks are solitary animals.

Defensive Mechanisms
Bramblebacks, despite their appearance, do not differ from normal bears in their equipped arsenal. Be aware of the powerful limbs armed with dagger-like claws that could crush the ribcage of most humanoids shorter than a tauren and a jaw that very well do the same to a skull.

Diet
Bramblebacks are most likely omnivores like typical Ursids.

Distribution
Bramblebacks are endemic to Drustvar.

Thornclaw

Thornclaws, like bramblebacks have been influenced by Drustvar’s magic to appear part-plant. The physiology of these cats overall does not differ significantly from the brambleback with a mask-like head and leaf-like fur on their manes and tails. Like the brambleback as well, their limbs look like they were formed from woody roots but this only covers the lower half of their legs and the roots are less bound with a large hole forming in between. Possibly to aid in their speed and agility?

Social Behavior
Like most felids, thornclaws are solitary animals.

Defensive Mechanisms
Like bramblebacks, thornclaw defensive adaptations are little different than that of typical cats.

Diet
Thornclaws are presumed to be obligate carnivores

Total Species Diversity: 23

Spore walker

Of all the creatures I shall describe in these writings I don’t think any of them can challenge the spore walker for the title of most bizarre. These alien lilypads on stilts traverse the fungal regions of Draenor (now Outland) in search of anything they can catch with their two thin tentacles[202] that they use to manipulate the environment around them.[203]

Social Behavior
Spore walkers are highly aggressive[204] and typically incredibly solitary though exceptions exist and there is even one case of two separate species forming a symbiotic relationship.

Reproduction
Spore walkers are known to lay eggs[205] but not much else is known about their reproduction. Given how solitary most species are the possibility of them reproducing asexually exists.

Defense Mechanisms
The bulbous apparatus that each spore walker possesses is known for being able to channel laser beams. Loa know how they are able to accomplish that.[206]

Biology
Much of the spore walker’s biology remains a mystery but while lacking cephalization they have a clearly recognizable brain[207] but many mysteries remain unsolved like how they perceive their environment (though the glowing apparatus at the front of their bodies might provide an answer) and even how they eat. On a side note, spore walkers collect spores on their tentacles acting as cross-pollinators for the giant mushrooms of the marsh.[208]

Diet
Spore Walkers are predatory creatures eating marsh critters fungal or otherwise[209]

Distribution
Spore walkers are native to Draenor and unless we find a way back to the alternate Draenor, found only in the Zangarmarsh.

Sporebat

While called “bats” sporebats look more akin to a flying stingray (Or more appropriately, a skyray, a group of organisms which will be brought up in volume seven) with clearly defined cephalization.

Social Behavior
There is a rumor spread that sporebats are next to always extremely vicious creatures[223] which I can only guess was used to drive up sales of sporebat pets when told that they are loyal and steadfast from an early age which is hogwash. In truth, sporebats are roughly evenly split in temperament with some species being relatively docile unless some external environmental factor stirs them up[224] while others are more territorial.

Reproduction
The pods upon a sporebat’s back may sometimes be in fact larval pods which house developing sporebat young. Creepily enough some people like to use these pods for jewelry[225]

Defensive Mechanisms
Sporebats are able to release clouds of spores from the pods on their back[226] that are incredibly irritating to other species’ lungs when inhaled.[227][228] This is not intended to kill the assailant however but more to weaken and distract so the sporebat can either flee or wrap a barb-lined tail around the foe and shred their flesh as they sting them.[224][229][230]

Diet
Sporebats are herbivorous with a preference for fungi.[231]

Distribution
Sporebats make their homes in the fungal swamps of Draenor. In modern day Outland they are found only in Zangarmarsh and the underground ecosystem of Coilfang Reservoir.

Fire spider

Fire spiders are really just like typical spiders with typical spider habits, but with fire and extreme temperature as icing on the cake.

Social Behavior
Fire spiders exhibit a great degree of variability in their social habits. However, it is generally accepted that the larger the species the more social it is. What drives this trend is unknown but it is well documented with the smallest fire spider species being largely solitary with the largest species forming multi-species broods.[252]. Only two broods have been described: The Echoweb brood of Pandaria and the Cinderweb brood of the Firelands. The Cinderweb brood is unique because of it being ruled by a broodmother that is similar in appearance to a nerubian and whose children are likewise. This breed of fire spider will not (as of now) be described as I am currently unsure as to their status of sentience and how exactly they fit among fire spiders as a whole.

Reproduction
Like typical spiders, fire spiders lay their eggs in squishy gel-like sacs.[253] Broods reproduce and tend to the eggs communally, all species will defend and tend to each other’s eggs as if they were their own making it hard to actually know which species an egg sac belongs to. Sometimes cinderwebs will even lay eggs on living hosts that die when the eggs hatch.

Defensive Mechanisms
Fire spiders spin webs[254], bite[255], and spit venom[256] like normal spider species.[257] However, their venom is boiling hot[258] with silk that sears flesh and possesses unparalleled viscosity.[259]

Diet
Fire spiders primarily feed upon elementals, sucking the magma and fire from their corpses[260] but will not shy away from eating actual flesh.[261]

Distribution
While known primarily from the Firelands fire spiders can be found in any place with a high affinity with the element of fire such as the Searing Gorge, Ragefire Chasm and even Frostfire Ridge in Draenor.

When in special service to the broodmother, cinderweb spinners undergo a metamorphosis to make themselves more humanoid in appearance. Firelands NPCs[267]

Pyroannelid

Lava Worm

Fire elemental analogues to the gyreworms. These large multi-segmented are built with four uniramous pairs of parapodia and four independently moving mouth-parts that imitate a jaw.

Social Behavior
Lava worms are largely solitary animals rarely seen interacting with one another.

Defensive Mechanisms
These creatures are known to spew[291] and spit lava[292] with wild abandon, even to the point of showering it in rapid succession[293].

Carnivore
Lava worms are carnivorous beasts that eat other pyrozoans or animal life.

Distribution
These worms inhabit lava-pools of the Firelands and other regions that hold affinity with fire.

Fire hawk

Fire-based analogues to the elemental drakes of Skywall and Deepholm. These dazzling pyrozoans undisputedly dominate the skies of the Firelands soaring through the dense superheated air with ease and grace.[306] However, as beautiful as these creatures the old adage that the brightest flames burn the fastest holds true for these magnificent beasts. Within two days of hatching a fire hawk chick will reach full size and not living for much longer after that.[307] There must be some exception to this, as fire hawks are a popularly sought after mount among adventurers and would not hold near the weight they do if they lived as long as an insect.

Social Behavior
Fire hawks are solitary animals[306]

Reproduction
Like normal birds, fire hawks lay eggs[308], but also unlike normal birds, fire hawks do not exhibit biparental care (that can be seen).

Defensive Mechanisms
Their defensive abilities are relatively predictable often involving spitting balls of fire or raking with talons.

Diet
presumed carnivorous

Distribution
Fire Hawks are endemic to the Firelands

Phoenix

I doubt much of anyone needs a description of what a phoenix is. These majestic birds of flame have long been summoned as pets and familiars by Azeroth’s and even Draenor’s mages. Yet, despite the length by which we have known of these creatures we have next to no published information on these animals. It could be most phoenix ‘species’ are not naturally occurring but merely elemental minions created by mages.

Social Behavior
Phoenixes are presumed to be solitary animals.

Reproduction
Phoenixes have a unique method of asexual reproduction endemic solely to them. When a phoenix dies, hatchlings are born from the ashes of the dead ‘parent’[324] or hatched from a singular egg the phoenix reverts to.[325] how the population dynamics work with this method is still a mystery.

Defensive Mechanisms
Their defensive abilities typically involve fire.[326]

Distribution
Phoenixes are presumably native to the Firelands, but if they are then they are much rarer than the fire hawks.

Pyrochelonian

Fire Turtle

Not much to say outside of them being turtles with a molten hot shell and small volcano on their nose. The species exhibits sexual dimorphism with males being larger than the females

Social Behavior
Fire turtles are relatively social, living in family groups consisting of a pair bonded male and female with developing hatchlings.

Reproduction
Fire turtles form monogamous pairs and exhibit biparental care (which any parental care at all is unique among non-archosaurian reptiles)

Defensive Mechanisms
Females and smaller males are capable of retracting into their shells and spinning to knock back aggressors[338] while fully grown males can breathe fire.[339].

Distribution
Fire turtles are native to the Firelands.

Core Hound

Massive two-headed beasts of the Firelands with hides of molten leather[345] that exhibit continuous growth, the older the core hound the larger it is [346]

Social Behavior
Core hounds are mostly solitary (except when rearing young) but aren’t territorial and can sometimes be seen in close proximity.

Reproductive Behavior
Core hounds give birth to live young and form monogamous pairs by which they sire their young[347]

Defensive Mechanisms
Core hounds are notorious fire breathers[348] but can also hurl molten lava from their dripping maws.[349].

Social Behavior
Hell hounds are mostly large-scale pack hunters.

Defensive Mechanisms
Hell hounds are dangerous due to their forming large packs that can overrun individual adventurers as well as their fiery exteriors[361] and molten jaws.[362]

Diet
Carnivorous[363]

Hell hounds are native to the Firelands and several islands of the Great Sea.

Brimstone Hellhound Common Brimstone Hellhounds form highly complex packs that are divided by three roles.

The alpha is known as a lavamaw and is the largest and most powerful hound of the pack. Their howl alone can rend the earth asunder causing it to erupt. Trackers are visually distinct due to their red coloration and are self explanatory in their role to the pack being responsible for seeking out the pack’s newest prey. They are faster than the rest of the pack capable of short bursts of speed and even spitting bolts of lava. The rest of the pack are simple unspecialized hounds that make up the core of the pack’s hunting party.
