Pegataur

by John Walter Biles

Long ago, a wizard of the city of Shraek in Alphatia decided to create these creatures, fusing together Shiye Elves and Pegasi. The result are winged, elf-like Centaurs. They are now a full-fledged independent community in Alphatia. They are mostly found in Floating Ar, Blackheart, and Shiye-Lawr. They are friendly to both Elves and Pegasi (and normal horses).

Like most Mystaran Elves, the average Pegataur dabbles in both magic and fighting skills. They use their vast mobility to stay out of the range of all but the quickest foes, shelling them with bow shots and spells.
