Earthshaker minimap icon.png Raigor Stonehoof, the Earthshaker
Like a golem or gargoyle, Earthshaker was one with the earth but now walks freely upon it. Unlike those other entities, he created himself through an act of will, and serves no other master. In restless slumbers, encased in a deep seam of stone, he became aware of the life drifting freely above him. He grew curious. During a season of tremors, the peaks of Nishai shook themselves loose of avalanches, shifting the course of rivers and turning shallow valleys into bottomless chasms. When the land finally ceased quaking, Earthshaker stepped from the settling dust, tossing aside massive boulders as if throwing off a light blanket. He had shaped himself in the image of a mortal beast, and named himself Raigor Stonehoof. He bleeds now, and breathes, and therefore he can die. But his spirit is still that of the earth; he carries its power in the magical totem that never leaves him. And on the day he returns to dust, the earth will greet him as a prodigal son.

Earthshaker was once an unnamed immortal being, able to take on various forms. He hails from Nishai, where he lay dormant until woken by an earthquake. Even in his slumber, Earthshaker was able to sense lifeforms around him.[1] Assuming the form of a mortal beast, he is able to reshape his body at will, giving himself horns to defend against a hostile world.[2]

He has befriended Gargoyles, a species that inhabits Nishai.[3] There is evidence that he has some relations with Behemoths, whose remains he uses as armor.[4]

Earthshaker is charged with protecting The Red Mountain, possibly a location in Nishai.[5] He is hostile towards the Dire, equipping special totems imbued with light to counter its corruption.[6]

Others[edit]

  • Earthshaker is fond of saying "Let's Roll", to an annoying degree.[7]
  • Earthshaker has an unhealthy obsession with Blink Daggers.[8]
