We have domesticated dogs. And cats. And birds. We have goldfish that swim around in tanks and snakes that barely move.
But what if you could domesticate creatures from the Four Lands? How cool would it be to have your own moor cat? Or a war shrike? Or maybe something more deadly, like a jachyra? Or asphinx?
So, what Four Lands pet would you want and why?

You forgot Roc in the list. I chose other because I would choose a Roc.
Roc is with War Shrike.
But since the poll software won’t allow me to edit one of the entries, I’ve added Roc to the list.
I wonder though are Sylvans and Tatterdemalions? Since Sylvans take care of parks and the like in service of the Word; and Tatterdemalions are creatures created by the Word.
Meant to say are Sylvans and Tatterdemalions really pets.
They are pets as much as a Jachyra
I’m a big fan of the Creeper. Hard to defeat. Once an ally we would make a righteous team.
People are crazy to do a moor cat, Rocs fly! I would love to fly
What about a Splinterscat from Morrowindl?
Totally want a splinterscat!!!!!!
Voted Jachyra. Enjoy a challenge….
Jachyra. Talk about house-training hell. I’m guessing you don’t get a favorable response by spraying a demon in the face with a squirt bottle of water. Tragic? Lethal? Geographically dispersed? All yes. Favorable? Unlikely. 😉
What about the splinter cat? He was there with Wren along with the treesqueak.
This is so unfair, I only get to choose one. I would love to have both a Moor cat and a Roc
same here! One for land and one for the air!
I agree. Why not both?
I don’t see prism cats on this list 🙁 Edgewood Dirk was one of my favorites…
Dirk isn’t in the Four Lands.
Ohhh… I must have read it wrong. *Derp*….
We’ll just call this a “blonde moment” for me… It happens more often than I care to admit….
I’m going to skulk away back under my rock, now…..
also he isn’t an animal
Nice choice! Brings an interesting question is Landover somehow connected to Shanara
Moor cats are very loyal and would do anything to protect there owners
One write in vote for “The Mole!” … Or Shirl Ravenloft
OK the Roc section doesn’t come up on my computer so I put it in the roc/warshrike section. I would love to have a moor cat and a roc! 🙂
Moor Cat. And I dont even like cats. Im a dog person!!!!
I had to go with treesqueak. Such a cute idea 🙂
with a Moor cat, one becomes a shadow of the other
oow no the voices are back……EXCELLENT
I chose Roc/War Shrike because flying one of those would be phenomenal! Besides the rush of flying, if I had to flee a dangerous situation on ground what better pet than a Roc or War Shrike! Plus one could teach it to hunt for you and bring you back food! What a great survival and travel pet!
I already adore cats, so a Moor Cat just seems like – well, the next, better breed up!
Now if only we could domesticate Furies.
moor cat…..moor cat….oh how i want a moor cat….2 of past cats have been named rumor and whisper
Moor cat is my choice. But I would like a roc too. On my pc when you vote roc you are also voting war shrike are the same vote, but in the results they are separated. I think some of those combine roc and shrike are probably roc votes.
I chose the Roc but I so want a moor cat also . And I was guessing the oakBog wouldn’t be a very good pet would it? Since it was in the forbidden ? 😉 but its similar to frogs I picture with teeth. And they talk .
Oh I love cats and I had a cockatiel love Birds so I would fly to where I wanted to go instead of a automobile 🙂
whisper was hands-down my favorite non-human(ish) character in all of the shannara novels. i’m also known for being a sucker for pretty much anything with fur and no more than 4 legs. we recently introduced my 15-yr-old nephew to the wonderful world of fantasy role playing (dungeons & dragons) and his ranger character has a giant lynx for a pet … i’m still trying to convince him that it should be named whisper – lol!
I chose other because I would have picked a Kodan.
Rumor for sure!
Are there any Sylvans or tatterdemalions in the four lands? I thought they were wiped out around the time of the great war. Just curious, my vote by the way moor cat.
I believe in The Genesis of Shannara there is a tatterdemalion. Don’t remember any sylvans(its been a while), but I do think they were mentioned.
Roc or a Warshrike would be awesome but since i’m not a wizard/druid/warlock of any kind I think the Warshrike would eat me so i’m going with Roc. Flying would be awesome!!!
Why can’t we have more than one??? I’d have to have at least 4 of the animals….Roc, Moor Cat, TreeSqueak, Splinters Cat, and maybe a War Shrike!!!
I would choose a moor cat. They are loyal and can warn of danger before it arrives. Besides, they have a big PURR!!! What a nice vibrator when you need to relax…
Its a Cat, comes when it wants and is independent of you. When it does you are loved.
I would really like to have both a Moor Cat and a Roc. Can’t choose just one.
I think it would be cool to have a Roc or Warshrike, or a moor cat…. But….
