The burler is one of many creatures we designed for the world of Mothorial! They were inspired by moles and raccoons, and are seen as more of a pest than an actual threat. Some hewani even keep them as pets, though they can be a bit feisty and difficult to train.
AVA: I SEE IT!
ACKERLEY: You scared it off!
AVA: Come on, Ackerley! You think we can't keep up with it? Maybe this job's too intense for you.

AVA: Sorry, a quest.
ACKERLEY: Yes, Ava, a quest!
