Ol' Kazko is a legendary forefather of modern beavers, famous inventor, pioneer of rapid industrialization.

Little is known about Ol' Kazko, except that he is held in high esteem by the other Timberborn Beavers. Ol' Kazko is frequently quoted in the building information panel that is displayed when a constructed building is clicked.

From the content of these quotes and comments, it has been inferred that Ol' Kazko may have created many of the components used in the Beaver power system.

A beaver named Kazko, after Ol' Kazko.

In the Early Access release, the game has a random chance of spawning a beaver with the name Kazko, as the beavers honor Ol' Kazko with their kits.


There has been some discussion in the community regarding Ol' Kazko. The Timberborn development team created a video, in which an elderly beaver speaks of the history of the "hoomans" and their demise, leading to the beavers rise is status. The community has discussed if this beaver narrator should be attributed as the voice of Ol' Kazko.
