This article is about the fey race. For the Dark Lantern known as Thorn, see Nyrielle Tam.

Thorns are small green-skinned warrior fey. They inhabit the forests of Khorvaire, but rarely interact with other non-fey races. They often act as guards to other fey. They have been seen in the woods of Aundair, and in the southern Eldeen Reaches to the west of Silver Lake.[1]


Thorns are small humanoids, wearing thick rubbery leaves as armor. Thorns usually wield wooden makeshift weapons, like longswords and bows, and shields. Their skin is dark green, and their hair is brown.[1]


Thorns are experts at most weaponry, and use these weapons to guard other fey. Thorns are usually armed with bows with sleep arrows.[1]
