The mycin is a bovine species native to some of the larger islands of the dewdrop peaks. They are considered some of the kindest creatures on Etharai, especially that can be found in the heavens. The source of the phrase "happy as a mycin" and "sunny as a mycin", used commonly in more rural angel dialects, come from this species' laid-back attitude and kindness. This disposition is in part due to the fact that there is little large enough and interested enough to eat them, leaving them with few natural predators. The single horn on their foreheads serves to further dissuade predators.


Mycin have yellow-gold fur, with white bellies and spots. Their skin is a pale white as well, though it is not visible through their dense fur. They have cloven hooves, and eyes on either side of their faces. They have thin and long limbs, with hooves pliable enough to give them a grasp on steep inclines. Their long tails have a tuft at the end, which is incredibly smooth and soft to the touch.

Dietary Needs & Habits

The mycin is an herbivore, with a digestive system specificially designed for processing plant fibers. It eats grass, leaves, and other foliage, with a particular liking for wispgrass.

Uses & Byproducts

The mycin is farmed by some angels, primarily for its milk. Mycin milk is high in vitamin D, and is a thinner texture that some find more pleasant that other types of milk.
