A bator is a house-tent, created and maintained by the Alan-Atu people of the Ilquar Mountains of Northern Hosk. Bators are round homes built of wood and stone, that have walls comprised of stack stones that are cemented into place by straw and dung. The roof of a bator is a large leather tent-like cover, that is taken away when the Alan-Atu are not residing in the area at the time.
The bators are occupied by the Alan-Atu during winter, are several such house-tents are set around a small corral.
