Axenbrons (pronounced ax/in.brawns. Singular Axenbron) are a breed of hiphons, the majority of which are domesticated, there are however many packs of them still remaining in the wild.
Axenbrons evolved from hiphons who had migrated out of the frigid northern mountians of the Saisoga region. After many years they migrated south, eventualy reaching civilization where many were domesticated and became cattle for local populations.
Axenbrons are quadropeds with hoofed rear feet and a large hump on their back. The hump is most often directly between the shoulders of the the front. On average they weigh approxamitly 500 pounds and stand eight feet from the top of the head to the ground, but when standing they can reach heights of approximatly twenty feet. The humps vary in size, growing larger during the grazing season, and shrinking in the winter months, older age, or when the creature is in poor health. The axenbrons can walk on their hind legs alone and use their front arms to reach high branches, in search of fruit when avaliable. The three claws on the front are used to clear away snow and strip branches of leaves, as well as for defense, though they are often quite dull due to their habitual digging and their use when eating. The pelt of the axenbron is waterproof and during the winter time becomes very long to serve as insulation which, during the spring, is removed to be woven into blankets or waterproof overware, though it is not long or thin enough to be spun into cloth like the fur of the Bulbex. The eyes are set slightly to the side of the skull, causing a small blind spot several inches directly infront of them.
- Domestic axenbrons have been bread with a softer pelt then those in the wild, and in the winter months the pelt is slightly longer on average than most wild axenbrons.
- The pelt of Domestic axenbrons are a lighter brown than that of the wild ones.
- Wild axenbrons have thicker longer claws then domesticated; to protect the cattle and other people from harm, especially during mating season.
Purposes for DomesticationEdit
- Fur is used to make blankets and waterproof material.
- Pelt is thin yet strong
- Often used for sails or wind blockers
- Meat is butchered, all of it can be eaten except for the organs (carry a toxic chemical known as Thellmozen which has its own underground market among theves and murderers)
- Bones are extreemly dense, usefull for making basic tools.
