The badger is a small, fast and furry animal that makes a great animal companion. Although it is of small size, it can be very ferocious. When the master reaches level 5 it is capable of sending itself into a rage, giving it higher strength and constitution for a limited duration.
The common badger is a small but fierce mammal. Intensely protective of their territory, they make good companions for druids. Often, the badger will become enraged and simply throw itself into battle without a second thought.
