The giant tortoise is one of the largest creatures in all of Feyland. These ancient beings are also rarely seen, except in the deepest of woods. At times these monsters will enter rivers or lakes to rest. They are able to breathe underwater for a short period of time.

Pack Animal. These massive beasts can be used to carry a huge load. Both fey courts have used these creatures in their ongoing war. Having a beast that can carry hundreds of pounds of supplies has appealed to the Seelie and Unseelie courts.
