Lore[edit | edit source]
- Direhorns are three-horned dinosaurs found mainly on the Isle of Giants and the Isle of Thunder. These saurian titans populate many islands in the South Seas.
- The Zandalari breed specific direhorn species for their small size for use as mounts. A common coming-of-age rite among the Zandalari is to travel to one of the violent, beast-ruled islands near the capital to steal or subdue a wild creature, such as a direhorn or devilsaur. Before a Zandalari sets out to tame a direhorn, they are known to traditionally carve sigils into their arm with ceremonial horns, speak to a bestial loa, drink a wild draught, wear a twin-tusk mask, and "roar with the inner voice".
- Even at a tiny size, direhorns are known to wreak havoc on unsuspecting victims. There is an old Zandalari saying about wild direhorns: "Run!
