W-we were born on the same day, and b-both our mothers died. The old lord valued his Molocar as much as his Kendar. Torvo and I were suckled by the same wet nurse. We've been together forever.
– Tarn, To Ride a Rathorn, "Chapter IX: School Days", I
Torvo is Tarn's bonded Molocar hound. Torvo and he were born on the same day, and both of their mothers died; the old Lord Danior had them nursed by the same wet-nurse, since he considered Molocars as valuable as Kendar. He dies of old age after tracking the rogue rathorn, Death's-head.
