The Volleying Porcupine (Hystrix sagittarius) is the Awakened version of the North African crested porcupine (Hystrix cristata). They resemble the common porcupine in all respects, save for their two Awakened defenses. Volleying Porcupines can emit a noxious musk similar to that of a skunk, and it can "volley" groups of its quills at a strikingly long range. These defensive abilities guarantee that it has virtually no natural enemies.
Volleying Porcupines are considered a major pest by foresters, as they gain sustenance during wintertime by ringing the bark off of trees. They also have an unusual requirement of salt, going to great lengths to ingest salt in their diet. They live throughout woodlands and rocky terrain in Southern Europe along the Mediterranean coastline.
