Borroq is a free folk skinchanger who can inhabit the body of a boar.[1]


See also: Images of Borroq

Borroq is hulking, black browed, with a flat nose, heavy jowls dark with stubble, and small close-set eyes.[2] Reflecting on an encounter with Borroq in his youth, Varamyr describes him as having looked so much like his boar, that all he lacked were tusks.[1] His boar is as large as a bull, covered in coarse black hair, with tusks as long as a man's arm[2] or a sword.[3]


Borroq was one of those present at a meeting of skinchangers that Haggon took Varamyr to in his youth.[1]
