Horquine is an elven mage known for his attempts to breed a variety of azmyth that would eat the fyreflies in Cormanthor. The fyreflies were causing problems by igniting large parts of the forest, and although the azmyth Horquine bred were able to eat them, they could not digest the abdomens, the source of the flames, and so they were forced to spit them out, causing a fireball.[1]
