Proposed Canon

Tchotchke is a non-humanoid unit resembling a transparent glass animal.Erf-b1-p009Same-site.PNGErf-b1-p010Same-site.PNG

Known varieties include unicorns, catsErf-b1-p010Same-site.PNGErf-b1-p025Same-site.PNG, and giraffesErf-b1-p097Same-site.PNG.

Tchotchkes (at least of unicorn variety) can be used as a mount.Erf-b1-p025Same-site.PNG

Tchotchkes are heavy units Erf-b1-p009Same-site.PNG, but can still enter tunnels Erf-b1-p097Same-site.PNG.


Speculation

Known Users

Royal Crown Coalition - probably Jetstone since tchotchkes are present in the attack on the Gobwin Knob tunnels, in which only Jetstone and Marbit forces were supposed to take part.Erf-b1-p097Same-site.PNG. A tchotchke was also used as a mount by Webinar on one occasion.Erf-b1-p025Same-site.PNG

Real World Reference

A glass unicorn may be a reference to the play "The Glass Menagerie."

Tcotchke is a word in Yiddish (of Slavic origin) meaning "trinket" or "toy".
