Darog

"Darog raisin' ain't glamorous work. Hells, it ain't even lucrative work. But it's good, honest work. And honest work will do you a lot more than fame or riches ever will." -Hernad Greenwhistle, Thrancian darog rancher during the testimonial in a darog rustling trial.

They have large orange eyes and triangular heads that lack visible ears. Female darogs have one to two curved horns that point outward.
