A distinctly large, obese furry beast that moves on two legs. It can measure up to 4 steps in height, but is no less strongly built in width. A full-grown Zwarl weighs about 2 pounds.
The humanoid-shaped body of the Zwarl is covered by a dense, dark brown fur, except for the facial area, which varies in length depending on the coldness of the environment. Its chunky hands and feet each have 5 toes.
Similar to the tree ripper, the Zwarl is found in forests of the temperate zones. Especially in the forests of the Silkanda.
As a rule, it is peaceful and playful. However, when it comes to protecting its own life, it can become quick-tempered and brutal. The Zwarl spends most of its life lying idly around, paying little attention to approaching Humans or predators, as they are usually unable to harm it.
In battle, it lashes out like a berserker. Due to its size, the Zwarl can hit up to three adjacent targets at once.
