Cultural PreferencesAround Varlonan, these are the typical aspects of this race's lifestyle preferences.
Weapons: Natural, they tend to use their hooves, teeth and horns for weapons. They are not opposed to using man made weapons too though.
Armor: Generally they don't wear armor, regardless of which form they are in, but they aren't opposed to it.
Currency: Gold and trade; they'll often entertain or do body guard work in exchange for what they want.
Diet: Carnivore/Herbivore. The minotaur half will only eat meat, and the satyr half will only eat foliage.
Attire: In minotaur form, they will generally wear human made clothing for their lower torso in compliance with local customs. In satyr form though, only females will wear upper attire while in other cultures. All attire is usually kept light so they can remain mobile.
Environment: Fields and mountains.
Homeland: Risi Vulpus
Partners: Due to their lustfulness, Minotyr males will take anywhere between 1 and 3 females, and will not hesitate to shift into their Minotaur form to protect their 'herd' if they feel the threat warrants it. Males will often have small skirmishes with other males over females, and will often sway a female from a friend in the skirmish. But, the loyalty between males is rekindled quickly, and the reveling begins again.
Friends: As long as you are fun loving and enjoy relaxing and don't mind a somewhat hedonistic lifestyle, a Minotyr will be quick to accept you and count you amongst their friends. The second you make substantial ripples in a Minotyr community, expect to be escorted out. Do not attempt to fight it if you value your life.
Foe: Any individual that threatens the safety of any part of the society, whether it be one member or a group of wives, will find itself on the wrong side of 2,000+ lbs of muscle and razor sharp horns. Specifically, werewolves tend to pick off Minotyrs when they are in Satyr form, whether that be for food or out of jealousy of the peaceful and mirthful lives lead by Minotyrs remains to be seen. Due to the targeted killings, Minotyrs typically will not stay in a calm fashion for long if they sense a Werewolf nearby, and will become a berserking rage machine.
Children: The only thing a Minotyr loves more than good wine, good women and good times, is their children. Minotyrs may become monsters when protecting the herd, but when protecting their children they become something on a completely higher level: PURE animals beyond reason.
Territory: Minotyrs thrive in areas that combine prairies for grazing and to fill the need to stretch their muscles in Minotaur form, and wooded ares that they can live out their mirthful existence with their ladies, and wine, of choice and still have the trees in cover to buy them added time to shift into Minotaur if the situation turns dire.
Minotyrs are as natural to the world as a human and has no
discernible origin point as a species, they just 'are.'
