The Longest Journey Edit

Elgwan early trailer

Animated elgwan in an early trailer for TLJ.

An Elgwan is a large mammalian quadruped, with a turtle-like - but soft - shell covering its back. It stands about 3m tall and is about 5m long from top to tail. They are used as both pack and riding animals. A variety of the species, the Giant Elgwan, is found in Ch'angagriel. Minstrum Yerin informs April that in the desert they can smell water from more than half a day's walk away.

Dreamfall Edit


An Elgwan in Dreamfall

An Elgwan appears to be operating the well in the South Gate Market: Zoë can hide behind it to sneak past an Azadi soldier who guards the alley where Crazy Clara's pet is hiding.

Roper Klacks can be found selling Elgwan bladders from his potions stall, suggesting they have a use in alchemy.

Dreamfall Chapters Edit


Various Elgwans can be spotted in Chapters' Book Three, though Zoë doesn't seem to remember the exact name of the animal.
