Wharjits are an ancient race of creatures that roamed the Alaskan hills before the glaciers. Small, docile herbivores whose vocalizations would have reminded one of Gregorian chant. They lived high up in the alpine terrain, foraging peacefully on the low shrubs and berries during the summer months, and subsisting on bark, moss and the occasional root during the lean, cold, hard winters. Not much is known about them, but I can assure you that I am the worlds foremost expert on Wharjits, being the only living man to have ever found the remains of one. And here those remains be.

I present to you the only Wharjit known to mankind. The rarest of rares, an archeological one of a kind. This particular Wharjit was found hidden in what at first appeared to be an unusually colored piece of driftwood on the banks of the Matanuska river. It is clear now though, after having carefully carved away the callouses of time, that it was no driftwood at all, but a real, genuine Wharjit dislodged from the icy grasp of the Matanuska Glacier. His fossilized remains still bear one intact eye, while the other has been lost either to eons of bitter glacial ice or perhaps to an unknown, as of yet undiscovered predator he encountered earlier in his life.
