I've just noticed something about Briarthorns...

That they’re actually made of wood. I swear to god that I thought they were some sort of mutated wolf or something like that.

Interesting indeed o.o

I still don’t know if they are wolves, dogs, or coyotes.

Neither, they are essentially thorn/wood golem/monstrosities.

The face reminds me of a cross between a bullskull and a bird (it looks like a beak from the front), the front limbs look like mantis claws, the hind legs could kiiinda resemble canine but they’re way way wayyyy too exaggerated imo. Not to mention the huge body, it has some pretty well defined muscle/rib groups on the chest (can’t see that normally), but they’re probably just wood anyway.

Stay away from aether corruption or weird things happen.
