> You might be true. But *everyone* knows the Tusk Riders came to Ralios in the First and Second Ages. And that's a detail going back to Borderlands (which btw is why the main entry on Tusk Riders pertains to *Prax*).

Well, there is everyone knows, and there's what could have happened. I don't doubt that Aramite boar riders could have made it to Ralios along with other Theyalan missionaries or armies, and they were likely warlike already back then. They surely will have smelled of pigs, but that distinct look would have to have been ritual masks rather than skin and bones back then.

I'll regard Troll Pak (which puts the appearance of the Tusk Riders into historical context) as a more reliable source than an encounter description in Borderlands.

Sure. For the unlucky few who don't get sacrificed right away by their Tusk Rider captors, it may become more than a theory.
