Aurim Species in Orcerta | World Anvil


Written by KyoAkashi

It was the first time I saw an aurim outside my home and, above all, not from a passenger's perspective.
Threatening but also strangely majestic.
It's a wonder we're able to tame this force of nature.

Basic Information


The Aurim are quadrupedal ungulates with massive, muscular legs, yet they are exceptionally fast and enduring.
These animals are characterized by their broad, muscular physique and, in comparison, short neck.
The Aurim has long, drooping ears that reminds one of the floppy ears of a rabbit, this protects its auditory canals from environmental and foreign body influences.
The ears mentioned can also be set up in case of danger.
On their forehead they have two small pointed horns which are used to scratch open the bark of certain trees to get their juice.   In the wild, Aurim can be found in black, white and brown, or a mixture of these. Bred specimens now also show colours such as red, yellow or dark blue, but are usually for the nobility or the breeders themselves.

Biological Traits

The characteristics of an Aurim are determined by its origin and breeding. The decisive aspect here is what kind of Saxum is given to the mothers during pregnancy.  
  • Fire
    • The body temperature is higher than normal. They are sighted more often in cold areas.
  • Water
    • They need much less water than other Aurim and hardly exhaust. They are often found in deserts.
  • Nature
    • The Aurim is much more robust and is less likely to fall ill.
  • Electric
    • The animal is much more weather sensitive and warns of these.
  • Power
    • The animal can temporarily reduce or multiply its weight to increase its speed or become more stable.
  • Mind
    • The presence of the animal is much more difficult to detect from other living beings.
  • Body
    • The hooves of the animal adapt to the ground, so that it can walk and stand better.
  • Emotion
    • It has an even better hearing and usually also slightly longer ears. They are easier to train on commands.
  • Dream
    • They are characterized by unusually great courage and are difficult to train and manipulate.
  • Soul
    • They are much older than other species of Aurim, sometimes even twice as old. You can hardly sell them because they have a strong bond with their owners.

Genetics and Reproduction

The mating season of the Aurim is mostly in the Muta . During this time the stallions become much more aggressive and the females much more reserved. [Trade is greatly diminished during this time and outsourced to the females.] The females are usually 3 months pregnant and give birth to the foals at the beginning of the next Muta .   Ordinarily, only one foal is born per pregnancy.

Growth Rate & Stages

Mares are sexually mature at about 3 years, whereas stallions are already sexually mature at 2 years. Aurim are full-grown at the age of 4-5 years.

Ecology and Habitats

The Aurim are adapted to different environments according to breed or origin. It is not unusual to find these creatures both in the deserts and in the tundra of Orcerta. However, the greatest variety of Aurim can be found in the milder areas of the world.

Dietary Needs and Habits

The Aurim eat mainly grass, but do not spurn fruits or vegetables. In general, adult Aurim should be fed about 12 kg of fresh hay daily and have access to an appropriately large meadow to graze.   In the Hie they use their horns to open the bark of the Lidis and drink its sweet, warming juice.

Additional Information




Facial characteristics

The head of the Aurim is characterized by a short muzzle and wide nostrils. On their forehead there are small, thick horns that are used to scrape off the bark of the Lidis . But most of all, and most liked by many, are the long floppy ears that distinguish the Aurim.   There has been a rumour among breeders for ages that a white drawing on the face of an Aurim is supposed to bring luck and a black drawing brings bad luck.

Perception and Sensory Capabilities

Aurim have a good sense of smell but in most cases trust their ears more, the hearing channels are extremely sensitive and are protected from harmful influences by their drooping ears. Some people say that the horns of an Aurim are weather sensitive, but this is a matter of debate.
