Torque is a sylvan who lived in the fields of Lower Posada in Dol Blathanna. He tried to help the elves who lived in the Blue Mountains, and had an agreement with them: grain and corn and other agricultural goods, without killing humans. He appeared in the short story "The Edge of the World".
| "The creature was about half a rod tall with bulging eyes and a goat's horns and beard. The mouth, a soft, busy slit, also brought a chewing goat to mind. Its nether regions were covered with long, thick, dark-red hair right down to the cleft hooves. The devil had a long tail ending in a brush-like tassel which wagged energetically."
