To'raken are one of the Seanchan exotics, taken from worlds accessed via the Portal Stones to fight Shadowspawn. They are large flying animals, that resemble raken, except larger and brown rather than grey and herbivorous not omnivorous. They are not as agile or fast as raken, but are stronger and can fly for much greater distances without rest, or carry heavier loads. Their primary purpose is transportation of troops or cargo, transporting as much as a thousand pounds over distances of two hundred miles. They are ranked lower than raken and a morat'raken would not normally be ordered to fly a to'raken, though they would be capable.
