Bovinos

The Bovinos are a race of Cernunnos that share characteristics with bovids and inhabit a region in Yeoreth called Braesisis.

Basic Information

Anatomy & Morphology

Origin of Morphology
  Born from the blood of Cerûnin, he moulded them to resemble bovids. While they're an anthropomorphic race, they have many similarities with the ungulates.  
Anatomy
  They are anthropomorphic, with two arms, two digitigrade legs and an endoskeleton. Their forms are slightly hunched since they have narrow shoulders and deep ribcages, pushing their shoulders forward. They also have a fairly broad base, giving them a lower centre of gravity. Most are covered in a short coat of hair and they only have three functional toes and fingers, with a fourth defunct digit.

Biological Traits

Sexual Dimorphism
  Males or often larger and stronger than females; however, females are more flexible and have stronger immune systems since they bear children, but some lack horns.

Genetics and Reproduction

They mate as most mammals do, with a gestation period of 9 months.

Growth Rate & Stages

They reach adolescence within 6 to 8 years and adulthood in 14 to 16.

Dietary Needs and Habits

They are herbivores.

Additional Information

Facial characteristics

Their heads are roughly human-shaped; however, their heads protrude more, with their head base being more to the back of their skulls. Their eyes are on the edge of their heads and their mouths appear low on their heads, with nostrils centred between the eyes and mouth. They also have long ears on the top of their heads and most have horns; however, their features can vary greatly, following the appearances of bovid species.

Perception and Sensory Capabilities

Their base senses are superior to that of other races.

Civilization and Culture

Naming Traditions

First names generally have little bases, besides following the phonetics of their language Dotiya. However, last names are based on family heritage.
