An apparent member of the Odobenus genus, this marine mammal now extinct in the Middle Lands was surely a frightful sight to adventurers during the Crystal War. Adventurers spotted by a ruszor would immediately be attacked, and if not careful, would face a series of damaging aquatic maneuvers that could result in death.

As was the case with many creatures that provided expensive raw materials for crafters and cooks alike, ruszors were hunted to extinction in the Middle Lands. Their large tusks or fangs, their hides and their meat were all valued by hunters and craftsmen. Some speculate that there might still be some frozen remains in the Northlands, but excavation in that remote part of Vana'diel is usually thwarted by the demons who currently roam those lands.

Historical Background[edit]

A Ruszor is an alternate name for the roshwalr. The roshwalr, or horse-whale, was a sea-monster in Norwegian folklore. It was reported to have a smooth body like a whale but with the head of a horse. In 1520, a roshwale head was actually sent to Rome to be examined. While under examination it received the name ruszor and later on it was believed that the roshwalr was nothing more then an exaggerated walrus.
