Concept art – fauna of Lorata

The top is a jzik’hé, which is similar to a large rodent.

The middle is a k’hiv, which is slightly smaller than a horse but much bigger than ostrich. Good for riding by elves and tall fae, but not strong enough to bear someone big like Loracaz III.

The bottom creature is a k’het, a beast of burden with varieties ranging from just smaller than ox to bigger than a yak. Most varieties do not have horns. They’re great for tilling fields and pulling carriages, but are not generally ridden or ranched.

While not generally hunted, eating these creatures is not forbidden. If they come to the end of their days, they are not left to waste, though they could be left for dragons, if any are around.

About Legends of Lorata

Eleanor Willow is the author of the high fantasy series Legends of Lorata, which takes place on a medieval-style world filled with elves, dragons and faeries. There is also a fourth race, one that is rare and magical: the angelic Starr. Lorata is a planet where four gods are known: good, evil, elemental and celestial-- and there are plenty of legends about them all! One of the most important ones is the prophecy of Jenh's champion, Loracaz, who is promised to return to the land whenever evil threatens to take hold. There are currently four books planned. The first one is completed and currently being edited. Any news I have on about publishing will be shared as it comes in!
