The swamplands of Moonmire are famous for their hostility towards human life. The giant gators, the swarms of insects, the easy to dispose of dead body drop zones and the maze of sawgrass trapping the untrained navigators makes this place quite unwelcoming to say the least. But Hazeshaper added to the danger with his ability to shapeshift and move between the fog. As he became more adept at this skill, he took it out of the Moonmire and serendipitously met the Overlord during a random event at Salvus Junction. They hit it off immediately and Hazeshaper never returned to the Mire, choosing to become a Thornraver and ride forth with the Overlord.
