Woodwoses

Wild creatures of the deep forest

Man-like creatures, hairy and wild, that were rumoured to live secret lives in the darkest depths of forests. The Woodwose is a creature from British folklore, but the name was used by Saeros in Doriath to taunt the unkempt and wayworn Túrin. Woodwoses were also connected with the Drúedain, the wild forest-dwelling Men commonly called Woses by the people of Rohan.
