A large, semi-aquatic rodent found only in the Solanaveldt. Being larger than most horses and more comfortable in the moist and muddy conditions found in the region, the Kabbe are the primary choice as beasts of burden here. Rarely found in groups of more than five or six, they are still very social and will often grow to adore any handler and treat them as part of their social group. They are also extremely timid around any water source in which they cant see the bottom.

Basic Information

Genetics and Reproduction

Kabbe will only reproduce in water, if a male's advance is unwelcome the female will float away down the river or swim away. Their pregnancies usually last about 19 months and will usually birth 2-4 calves. In rare cases a single calf will be born, these calves will grow to be even larger and stronger than other kabbe.

Growth Rate & Stages

The kabbe lifespan is split into three distinct periods: infant, adolescent, and adult.
  • Infant: Only in this stage for the first 1-3 months of life, the kabbe are barely a foot long and completely bald. They are almost unable to move, but luckily the mother usually stays put to recuperate after the birth of the kabbe calves.
  • Adolescent: This period continues for about 4 years, and it's start is indicated by the growth of hair. In these four years the calf will grow into a full grown adult while gaining social skills and either joining a family or creating it's own.
  • Adult: Now fully grown, the kabbe will be around 13 to 16 feet tall and 1,400 to 2,000 lb. This large rodent will be completely covered in it's reddish brown fur, and will constantly be chewing on hard objects like trees to keep it's teeth a good size.

Additional Information

Social Structure

Kabbe are known for creating surprisingly complex social relationships with other kabbe, other animals, and even Kanoia. In these "families" kabbe are known for distributing resources based on a need system, i.e. if there is a sick or pregnant kabbe the others in the family will provide extra resources at the expense of themselves. It is reported that they can even smell members of their family from miles away.


Domestication of the kabbe was an easy process. Possessing a timid and gregarious nature, they were easily slotted into an important role the lives of Kanoia in the Solanaveldt. Over time their ever growing teeth have started to grow at slower rates.

Geographic Origin and Distribution

Found only in Solanaveldt.

Perception and Sensory Capabilities
