Some woodlanders class toads as vermin. But Wartgor's not one of them. He's a good toad. He spent his life in the swamps in the Northlands growing up and did a lot of travelling.
When young, he came alone before the Badger Lady and her Long Patrol and said "If there's any way ah can help your hares, please let mah ken. Ah'll be glad tae." He laid his trident at her paws. "Mah trident es yours and yore hares for as long as ah live."
She and her hares dubbed Wartgor and his small tribe of toads the marsh regiment of the Long Patrol.
