Description(s)

Gazelle and Lyre-Horned Gazelle

Daintily timid, this small grey-brown antelope has a soft muzzle and great liquid brown eyes in a lugubrious triangular face. A pair of ridged black horns swoop out and up in a refined curve from her bony skull, drawing back in towards each other in a shape reminiscent of a classical vase. Her back is blanketed with rough grey-brown hide, fading to a dusty tan on her belly and legs, which are marked with faint stripes all the way down to her neat hooves.

  • Alignment: Neutral


Dwarf Gazelle [Variant I]

This sandy-coloured little antelope is rather an awkward-looking affair, lacking the elegant long legs and sweeping horns of many of its family. Instead, she has short black-striped legs and little stumpy horns like the horns on the stereotypical dwarf's helmet. This effect is heightened by a shaggy tuft of tawny-black hair on its chin, under the sulky black-rimmed eyes.

  • Alignment: Neutral


Dwarf Gazelle [Variant II]

This undersized, sandy-coloured antelope seems to have a case of Small Dog Syndrome, or Mine Is Bigger Than Yours, Really It Is. With small stumpy horns, short legs and a diminutive body, however, his only recourse is to stand around in corners all day glaring at people belligerently and trying to grow his beard longer.

  • Alignment: Neutral


Uses

  • None

Special Notes

  • Although horns may be harvested from all gazelle types, no use is known and they cannot be sold to general stores.
  • Dwarf gazelles may sometimes be found in herds of 2 to 5. This is more common in the "deep" plains and savanna.
