Forged from magic, horclops are some of the more unusual creatures in Calsin. With the lower body of an ox and the upper body of a minotaur, they are truly deadly monstrosities that reign terror wherever they are found.
No one knows how or why the horclops came to be, but everyone knows to avoid them if at all possible. Towering above nearly all sentient races, they will attack nearly anything on sight, occasionally even other horclops. They aren't particularly fast, but stand one of the strongest beasts for its size. Unlike normal minotaurs, they lack even a basic or rudimentary intelligence, making them useless as any form of slave.
Height: - 10-12 feet
Characteristics: - Will attack nearly anything it sees, though pregnant females and younger horclops will occasionally exhibit signs of fear. - Can use a form of blood magic to enhance attacks.
Habitat: - Sournous, Distisil
Weaknesses: - Fairly slow, compared to other beasts of its size.
Other notes: - It is possible to tame horclops, as several clans of witches in Distisil have done. However, this process involves taking a horclops from its mother within days of birth, and even then, isn't always met with success. - Horclops have never been observed to attack minotaurs in the wild. Theories abound as to why this is, but thus far, no solid evidence has been presented explaining this phenomenon.
