Basic Info[edit | edit source]
Dossier[edit | edit source]
Found along the Island’s many inland waterways, Lutra Peloso have become exceptionally adept at hunting and foraging. This species of Otter has to be particularly cunning because of its diminutive size, and fierce competition for its preferred food source: fish. It is not a creature that excels at combat, and would not naturally pose an intimidating threat to any predators.
Finding packs of river Otters is simple enough: They are distinguished by their elongated bodies, bushy tails, and webbed feet. Their trusting and inquisitive nature ensures they are often hunted for their lustrous fur, but many prefer to tame them to become trusted companions.
There are few creatures which provide the companionship that Lutra Peloso does. Rather than traveling beside you, it would prefer to comfortably rest on your back, providing insulation. Once domesticated, it can be told to harvest fish on demand, with a specific goal in mind from the fish that it consumes, the otter has a knack for foraging silica pearls, and can even yield a slight chance at finding black pearls within!

Roles[edit | edit source]
Filling the role of collector/hunter, the otters make great companions for players in the early stages of survival. Presumably a fairly easy tame due to their near vicinity to their primary food source, fresh survivors will be able to knock these out with little difficulty, and hunt fish for the tame while the otter slowly becomes hungry. When tamed, according to the dossier, the otter will keep you insulated on cold nights or rainy days, as a living cloak against the elements. It also provides survivors with a source of food, as it will hunt fish in waterways, meaning it helps combat hunger until the first land based predators can be tamed. Add this utility to a cute and cuddly creature, and you have a great companion in this tame. Providing large amounts of fish from its hunting capabilities, the otter also enables other fish-based tames.
In terms of farming, preliminary reviews indicate the otter will be able to collect black pearls and silica pearls. This means players now have the opportunity to collect these valuable resources at a very early stage of their survival, providing the potential of making some gear or structures at an earlier point than they would otherwise be able to without the presence of this furry little friend.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]
For information pertaining specifically to the real-world Otter, see the relevant Wikipedia article
- The Otter was first revealed on August 5, 2017.
- Assuming the design in mind is to bring the otter close to the real thing, otters will not receive a pack bonus when staying nearby other wild or tamed otters. Otters in the wild are solitary creatures for the majority of their lifespan, contrary to what one may believe from visiting various zoos around the world.
