Hathi appears as a huge elephant, twice the size of a regular Asian Elephant. Although he can be angered, Hathi normally appears with a sense of nobility and there is wisdom and kindness in his eyes.

Hathi was once a domesticated elephant working for his owner in Sind. When the village of his owner in Putnabad was attacked by Weretigers and other Shapeshifters in AC425, Hathi defended his village with such courage that Ixion and Ka the Preserver intervened, raising Hathi into Exalted status.

Since then, Hathi has been seen both in Sind and in Shajapur in the Hollow World. Elephants recognize him as their ruler and he will bring vengeance upon those who mistreat Elephants or hunt them for sports or merely for their ivory.

Note: The name was taken from the Elephant in Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book. Kipling borrowed the name from the Hindi word for Elephant. For a more humorous campaign, DM's might take inspiration from Colonel Hathi from the Disney Cartoon version of Kipling's novel.
