Treahugh was a famed ranger expert in tracking large monsters. Usually he accompanied wealthy city-dwellers who wanted to demonstrate their physical prowess by killing dangerous creatures.
However, one time, a merchant of Mirabar hired him to track the fabled Mielikkar in the High Forest. Treahugh had never before heard about this monster but agreed, thanks to the very good pay. But just after the merchant killed the Mielikkar, Trehugh realized he had helped kill an animal sacred to Mielikki.
