The Ffeleshypee for the Defensioun and Preservacioun of le Urchion is dedicated to defending and protecting the most noblest of creatures, the hedgehog. Founded in A.S. 50, the FDPU is focused on promoting the greater welfare of the Hedgehog in the Kingdom of the East and beyond.


The first public action of the FDPU was to sponsor the September 2016 page of The Beasts of the East - An East Kingdom Beastiary, which prominently featured the hedgehog. The inscription read as follows:

"The Ffeleshyppe for the Defensioun and Precervacioun of le Urchion wishes all a plenitudinous harvest
this September and remind everyone to watch for hedgehogs underfoot while traversing their vineyards."
