The dire boar is a strong ally, and as it gains levels it receives the ferocity ability, giving it a bonus to attack and damage rolls. The dire boar is a larger, more vicious version of their common cousins. Their thick hide and bone ridges allow them to wade into battle without much chance of being hurt.
