The Baneg is a very common member of the bovine family. They adapt easily
to most climatic conditions and are very mild in temperament. This made
them desirable and they were domesticated very early on. Although the
Baneg originally came from southern Sarvonia, they can now be found in
herds all over Caelereth.
The Daw is a species of Cows that is kept by the
penda'u at the continent of Akdor. It measures up to
two peds in heigth and three and a half ped in length. It has long brown hair,
that gets thicker near the hooves, grey eyes that may contain both threat and
calmness. The males grow horns up to half a ped that are curved slightly
downwards, and could make fierce weapons. They are kept for their milk, but also
for their beef and skin.
semi-feral species of cattle that is found only in the
Kanapan lands in
Northern Sarvonia, the Furno or
Kanapan Bulls are hardy and tough, with a heavy coat of thick fur.
Havach-Oxen (also called simply "Havach"s, "Quasi-Ox" or also
"Platebeast"), unique to
Nybelmar, are used as draftbeasts and
ridingbeasts. Plated beasts the size of elephants, with
powerful curving horns, they are nonetheless placid by nature and timid of
disposition. They prefer to herd together, and mate for life.
The Kyrattin is a member of
the bovine family and is most identifiable for the long horns seen on the
heads of both sexes. Making its home in the Kruswik Steppe, a large
grassland in the northern part of Southern
Sarvonia, a large number of the Kyrattin were domesticated by the
Kyranians soon after their
arrival in about 11705 b.S. Providing milk that is both rich and creamy,
meat that is temder and tasty, pelts used for a range of products, sinew
used for bowstrings and horns for trophies, tools and instruments, almost
every part of the Kyrattin are used by the
Kyranians and their descendants
in some way.
The Packox (plural
"Paxen") is a heavy, bulky, large and slow member of the bovine family that
makes its home in the icy north of the
Sarvonian mainland. Domesticated and used primarily as beasts of burden
by the Antislar tribe and progressive elements of the
Remusian tribe from
Northern Sarvonia, the Paxen
are easily identified by their thick coat, curved white horn and ritualistic
dances during their mating season.
The Rimmilch Cow is by far the most common kind of cattle
you will encounter in the United Kingdom
of Santharia. As the name already implies, the Rimmilch Cow dominates
the areas around the Rimmerins ring, but also can be found until the
Tandalas up north, thus
providing dairy products for large parts of
Santharia and is especially liked for
the excellent milch cheese.
Skaurgere (also called "Plainsbeasts") are large, broodish
animals prowling the vast expanses of the
Nybelmar plains. Gruff in nature and quick-tempered, they are dangerous
to tame. But they are far brighter than their hairy lumbering exterior lets
on and once "broken" can easily be ridden and can pull carts. The loud
guttural growls and roars they produce carry well across the plains.
The small, brown, delicate
frame of the “Strata” is no hint to its milk production. This animal is well
suited for the barren, dry climate it is situated in, and thrives there, under
the close care of humans, of course. The milk
production of this tan sweetie is enough to supply
Strata with milk, butter, cheese and cream.
is a member of the bovine family and has many similarities to domestic cattle. However, it is clearly an animal that is suited
for the Coast of the Icelands in
Northern Sarvonia. It provides a veritable cornucopia of products
that the Ice Tribes use to survive
in the harsh environment of the Ice Coast.
The Wison is a herd animal. As individuals, their eyesight and hearing are not
that advanced, but within the herd this is compensated for. These herds are
typically 100-200 animals, though herds of up to 400 have been sighted. When
pushed to extreme agitation, herds have been known to stampede. Nothing can
stand up to a stampeding herd, wildly charging as one massive entity, and
anything caught in its path is usually crushed by the multitude of hooves.
