The avalancher is a magical beast that lives in mountains. It is portrayed as having a large, round central body made entirely out of rock, with 6 insect-like, stony apendages for legs and a single eye stalk with a large, orange, glowing eye protruding from the top of the front. At the front of the central body is a teethed mouth. An avalancher attacks by using its legs to dislodge boulders and cause earthquakes and avalanches.
