The most clever of the animal spirits worshiped by the Rovers of the Barrens, Red Fox is credited with teaching men crafts and bringing them the gift of fire.


Red Fox's true form is that of a giant fox with bright red fur.



Red Fox hopes for increased contact between the Rovers and the forces for good in the outside world. He opposed the Horned Society and their corruptive influence on his people, when that nation was a threat to the Rovers; it is likely he also opposes Iuz. Red Fox values cleverness and dexterity, for he is as tricky as his namesake. He does not wish to see Rovers killing Rovers.


Red Fox is worshipped mainly by Rovers; few outside of the Barrens know of him.


Priests of Red Fox must defend foxes whenever they encounter one in danger.

Creative origins

Red Fox was created by David Howery as a chaotic good version of Coyote from the American Indian mythos in 2nd edition Legends & Lore.
