Standing at 2 to 2.3m tall and starting at 120Kg of mostly muscle, even a solitary Tuskfang is a terrifying being to face. They’re surprisingly intelligent for an Ogreling, but still fall notably short of the intellect of the Great Races. Of all the Ogrelings, they’re the least self-destructive, though they still tend to over-breed and risk starvation and the other problems of over-population. As Ogrelings they are asexual and ungendered. They mature quickly, reaching full mental and physical capability just one year after spawning. Tuskfangs have significant violent tendencies and most die before reaching 5 years of age. They enter middle age and their physical capabilities start slowly declining around 8 to 10 years of age. A Tuskfang over 12 years old is a senior and it is exceedingly rare for any to live past 15 even if they manage to avoid a violent death.
Tuskfangs are pack creatures who tend to grow incredibly uncomfortable and volatile when separated from their pack.
As with all sentient creatures, there is no universal Tuskfang culture. However, most Tuskfang groupings take the forms of large tribes comprised of a number of packs formed at spawning. The packs have a complicated pecking order, but there is nearly always one pack that is clearly the supreme pack. Non-warrior packs are treated with contempt and disdain at best. Young packs that have just reached maturity are often forced to leave the tribe and fend for themselves for a time. Tuskfangs routinely keep slaves for menial labour and as a food stock.
Tuskfangs are omnivorous and eat voraciously.
Like most Ogrelings, they seem to be unable to use magic that isn’t Elemental in nature.
