Esuvrym

Large, shaggy beasts found primarily in the Northern Hinterlands, as well as a few other small isolated regions of the Great Northern Wilderness. They have a long, thick, shaggy brown fur overcoat with a coat of short fur underneath to help it keep warm in the icy cold temperatures of the northern winters. In the summer seasons or if forcibly relocated to a warmer climate they shed heavily to cast off their undercoat as well as thinning their overcoat to help keep cool. When an Esuvrym feels angry or threatened, their eyes glow amber in an attempt to intimidate predators. The body of the Esuvrym is segmented like an ant. Along with the fact they have six legs, many mistakenly classify them as the world's largest insect. Despite these similar physical characteristics, they do not possess wings, antennae, or an exoskeleton.

Due to their natural size and speed Wolfen have rarely worried about such things as riding beasts. Most animals are too small to suitably seat a Wolfen rider in the first place. As hostilities with the humans encroaching upon their territory progresses, they have come to see the advantage of mounts. Not only does it allow for faster travel, but more importantly it provides advantages in combat. While a Wolfen warrior may be able to compete with a mounted human soldier in the occasional skirmish, if war does erupt they cannot ignore any possible advantage. For this reason the Wolfen have begun to capture and train the Esuvrym as war mounts for the military.

Behavior: Pacifistic by nature, these gentle giants feed on fruit, leaves, bark, and grass. Esuvrym will only attack in self defense, or if it is captured, broken, and trained as a war mount. They travel in herds of up to 20, but they are not particularly social creatures. When a herd is attacked it will scatter with no loyalties shown, not even to a mate. Only a mother will attempt to protect her young, and must do so alone, possibly sacrificing herself so her young may escape. Breeding occurs in the warmer summer climates. When taken out of their natural environment into warmer climates it can throw their natural mating habits out of balance resulting in sporadic outbursts for the first six months of relocation. A young is born after an 18 month gestation period. Young remain with their mother for about a year and a half, when mating season begins again.
