Elephants are almost unknown in the Westlands, but they are used as war animals in Seanchan (People) where they are known as s'redit. Valan Luca calls them giant boar-horses to make them more pronounceable and interesting.
There are three giant boar-horses in the circus:
- Mer - the bull
- Sanit - the cow
- Nerin - the calf
