Description(s)

Descriptions are example(s) from a single individual. Variations may be numerous, and dependent upon species, gender, age, location, and other variables.


Gaur

The gaur (Klatchian for 'cow') is the largest known species of bovine on the Disc. Not only that, it's the fourth largest land animal, unless one counts sentient trees. Or those dinosaurs that inhabit the mountains (what, you haven't seen those?). This cow doesn't seem particularly impressed by her pre-eminence. She is busy with the most important business of bovine life - cud.

  • Alignment: Neutral.


Bull Gaur

The gaur is said to look like a domestic cow from behind. That may be, but this massive bull will certainly not be mistaken for a mild-mannered milker once he turns around. His skull, which sports a pair of curved horns longer than a man's arm, resembles a rhinoceros' in its size; and if that weren't enough, the enormous ridge on his back ensures that there's no mistaking him for a female gaur, either.

  • Alignment: Neutral.
