Rabbuc are variety of warm-blooded terrestrial herbivore. They resemble  deer with the heads of rabbits. A typical adult rabbuc weighs around 120 kg. Rabbuc frequent the grasslands of Anexea, but can be found throughout the continent. Many sub-species exist, each adapted to its particular niche.

Rabbuc show dimorphism between the genders with adult males being 50% larger than adult females on average. Young are live birthed usually as twins in the spring. and reach sexual maturity after one and a half years.

As ground foragers, rabbuc will consume grasses and other leafy plants, as well as the leaves of shrubs, and even the bark of some trees.

Rabbuc typically rely on speed and agility to evade predators, but if pressed may bite, or kick in defence. They also possess bony ridges along the back of the forelegs, which are more pronounced in males and used in sparring over breeding privileges.

Many species of rabbuc have been domesticated successfully, and typically make up about 30-50% of all pastured livestock depending on the nation. Rabbuc are a excellent source of fatty milk, meat, and supple leather.

In the wild rabbuc herds tend to number less than two dozen animals, generally under the control of a dominant male. lone encounters are generally with young males seeking a harem of their own.


The most often encountered species, and regular domestic variety. The common rabbuc is considered more docile than other species and is kept as a domestic source of meat, milk and leather. They tend to light brown or ginger toned hair.


This variety of rabbuc has a distinctive elongated neck compared to others. As a browser of low to mid height trees and shrubs, they are often found in more arid regions of scrub land, or savanna. Their light tawny, or grey hair blends easily into the landscape providing some camouflage


This species possesses a coarse, long haired mane similar to a horse. Their hair ranges through darker browns, and blacks.


A giant species of rabbuc, domesticated as beasts of burden and labour. The average adult can reach 2-3 meters in length, 1.5 meters at the shoulder, and mass between 4-700 kg.


Shaggy Rabbuc

Found in colder regions or altitudes, the shaggy rabbuc has a heavy coat of woolly hair. Where they are domesticated they provide a renewable source of textile fibres in addition to the usual meat, milk and leather.


This species of rabbuc is a dwarf variety rarely larger than 50 kg. They have stiff long whisker-like hairs along their spine and a shaggier than average coat. they are primarily found in foothills, and mountainous regions.


This exclusively plains dwelling species is somewhat smaller than average, and tends to form herds numbering in the hundreds.


White Footed Rabbuc

This woodland dwelling species is noted for the distinctive white hair on the lower portions of their legs. Their coats tend to rust browns, and have white spots for the first few years.


Garke are legless mammalian predators, known for their fast and vicious tearing bites. There are several sub-species present on the continent of Anexea, each adapted to their local environment.

Found in packs of 2-6 (sometimes up to a dozen) animals, they are cunning and aggressive carnivores, often taking on prey much larger than themselves, using their ferocity and numbers to their advantage.

They are short furred creatures, with narrow tapered heads, and a rough scaley underbelly. Their hides are prized by furriers for their softness, colour and rich tones.

Their length is roughly one third head and neck, one third mid-body, and one third tail. Females tend to be larger than males, and live birth up to three young each spring once sexually mature.



Banded Garke are predators in the more heavily forested, and jungle growth areas of Anexea. They have a black-and-white banded appearance, with brown or grey spots along the neck and head..

The adult size ranges between 20-30 kg, and .75-1.5 m in total length.


Black Garke are predators of lightly forested areas of Anexea. They have a black-green colouration, with very dark brown and green brindling.

The black garke has teeth which are loose in their jaw, and will break off in the wounds of prey. These embedded teeth with often keep the wound bleeding, and can cause an infection if left untreated. This allows for the black garke to pursue and capture any prey that escapes.

The adult size ranges between 20-30 kg, and 1-2 m in total length.



Brown Garke frequent grassland areas of Anexea. They have a dark brown colouration with lighter brown ruff.

The adult size ranges between 30-40 kg, and 1.5-2.5 m in total length.


Desert Garke are a voracious predator of Krolaryn Wastes. They have a tawny colouration, and light through reddish-brown dappled hides.

The adult size ranging between 50-65 kg, and 2-3 m in total length.


Spotted Garke are particularly large, and solitary hunters, found in more temperate scrub-land. Similar in colouration and pattern to the Desert Garke, but with pronounced  ring-like spots along their backs.

The Spotted Garke is the only venomous sub-species of Garke. Its bite delivers a slow acting paralytic poison which aids the creature in downing prey that may escape the initial attack.

The adult size ranges between 80-100 kg and 4-5 meters in length.



Flyx – © Sebastian Romu

These molluscs are a prized delicacy in the markets Kythan towns. They are known to exist exclusively within the river system of the Celvan River.

The body of a flyx is covered by a rough pebbly textured convex shell up to 25 cm in diameter. Radially arranged around the edge are six prehensile tentacles reaching double the radius of the body. The mouth, eyes, and stubby swimming tail, are all located under the shell, at the centre of the disc shaped body.

These creatures are omnivorous preying upon algae and small feshwater crustaceans.  Often found in groups of up to a dozen animals.  They seem to be hermaphrodites and live birth 3-4 young at semi random intervals seemly related to low population numbers.

The flyx, while fairly docile and often ignoring other creatures entirely, has a defensive mechanism of jetting ink at predators and escaping while under cover of the cloud generated. This ink is often collected from captured specimens, and used by cartographers and scribes. If handled gently they can be lifted from the water without incident.

Random Animals

In order to explore fantastic creatures and invent unique lifeforms for the world of Entorais, I created random tables to generate fauna. Some of my extant critters, for example, the Shaloki, are adaptions from the results.

Here is a link to the shared pdf: Random Fauna Tables (v.1.1) (updated)

I encourage my readers to have fun with these tables. If you do find these useful, please use the results in your own works. I only ask that you give credit where appropriate. Any feedback on the tables, weird results, or thoughts about the process of randomizing creatures are welcome.

Hunted by the Iskandean fishermen these aquatic reptiles are aggressive predators of schooling fish upon which the local economy depends. They are found in pods of 4-6 members (pair bonded adults with one or two year old young).

Adults average a length of 2-3 meters, and a mass upwards of 500 kg.Young are live-birthed, generally in pairs, measuring half a meter in length and massing about 5 kg. They grow quickly, reaching full adult size, and sexual maturity in three years.

They swim using their four fore-limb flippers, hind limbs ending in webbed feet, and powerful flat tail. They are capable of limited movement on land, using their ability to leap from the water to great effect if threatened. Their mottled appearance lends some camoflague while stalking prey fish, before attacking with a savage tearing bite.

Spiny Garke


This species of spiny garke, is a small limbless mammal found in the region of the deserts of Krolar. A typical adult specimen is approximately 60 cm in length, with a mass of 2-3 kg.

They are known to be omnivorous hunters of insects and other small animals. They also have been known to eat fruit and other fleshy portions of various desert plants. They do not stray far from their communal underground nests, and are often found in small groups of up to one dozen animals.

The species name comes from the backward projecting array of spines radiating from the creatures head and neck. These spines are not known to be poisonous. If grasped, the garke will lurch backwards to impale its captor. The creature can also deliver a painful bite using its hard beak, with which it crushes small prey, and vegetable matter.

The species shows gender dimorphism, with the females being dull brown desert sandstone in colour, while males are banded with white (ring every 4-5 cm), and far easier to spot.


These lizards are common predators and scavengers on the Plains of Tekara. They are found in packs of up to a dozen animals. They are renowned for their ability to strip the carcass of a dead animal in a matter of hours, often aggressively defending the feast from larger scavengers. Kenkara are also known to be capable problem solvers and thus are difficult to trap. They possess an opposable digit on all six feet.

The average adult Kenkara is 6-7 kg in mass, and measures 50-70 cm in total length of which about one third is tail. Their scales range from dull red through black in colour, with a pale grey underbelly. The males of the species have a neck frill of brighter colours that is flared to scare off larger scavengers. The male’s frill is also used in mate selection, and displayed repeatedly during mating.

Females will lay just shy of a dozen eggs and brood them in a shallow scraped hollow. Once the eggs hatch the female leaves to join her group. Her brood are left to fend for themselves, and will often be found later as an adult pack.

Corpse Lizards



Other Names: Balaryn Dym (Kyŧus), Weltneitar (Waejir)

These tiny lizards are dark green to black in colour; males having a red strip along each side. They are most often found in or near standing water in mountainous or hilly regions. Their six stubby limbs end in small webbed feet which combined with their long tails help them swim with remarkable agility. The average adult of this species is between 10-20 cm long, with 50% of their length being tail.

From such swampy areas they venture out in search of dead animals. Should they find such a feast, they eat their fill, and then lay a great deal of eggs (100~150) in the carcass and return to the water.

The most common encounter with these tiny creatures is the swarming mass of newly hatched young devouring a carcass. Some predators will wait for just such swarming to catch a meal themselves. Only a few young escape to return to the watery home of their parents.

These scavengers are wary of other creatures and generally show animal intelligence. As adults they lead solitary lives coming together only to mate.

As cold blooded creatures they are most active during warm weather and will hibernate through the winter months.
