Alizarin Steed (Reptiquestrian)

Horse-like steeds that inhabit and are used in the region of Sercia

Basic Information

Anatomy

Alizarin steeds bear a similar resemblance to horses, but are different in a few ways. Their legs are shaped in more of a canine way than equestrian, and they have long toes instead of hooves. Their front legs are big and bulky, designed to carry them powerfully, and their back legs are much skinnier and daintier, mostly there for stamina. They are covered in smaller-sized scales, so their skin is rough and well-adapted to the desert heat. They are travel powerhouses and can go for a long time without rest or water, making them an ideal steed for desert-dwellers. They have ridges or spines going down their head and neck, size determined by age. Their tails are as thick and powerful as their bodies and could break bones with one smack.

Growth Rate & Stages

Alizarin steeds live to be about 40 years old. Their neck spines are not present in the juvenile stage, but start to grow once they reach about six years of age.   Development Stages Infant: 1yr old Juvenile: 2-6 yrs old Young Adult: 7-10 Adult: 11+

Ecology and Habitats

Alizarin steeds live all throughout the desert subregion of Sercia. Their main concentration is lining the southern steppe in dense herds, and scattered in large numbers across the canyon district. Not many naturally live in the Karini, but they are used to travel it.

Additional Information

Domestication

Alizarin steeds are used by the Alizarin tribes and Karini herders.

Perception and Sensory Capabilities

Alizarin steeds are very intelligent and do not take a long time to understand human (or other) commands. They can be easily trained and are used frequently for herding.
