Pegasi are a breed of magical beasts that, at first glance, resemble mere horses with large bird-like wings. Despite this, they have other avian features as well, their lower legs are feathered instead of furred and their manes and tails are also of feathers. They most commonly live in temperate forests and are incapable of speaking common.
Being wild and shy magical creatures, pegasi are not easily tamed. The most common way they are trained is after being raised from birth though sometimes a grown pegasus may be tamed, with a friendly attitude to the tamer, making a worthy steed indeed. Being goodly creatures, they will only serve good or neutral riders with an absolute faithfulness for life.
Along with their physical attributes, pegasi are also like birds in that they lay eggs rather than giving birth to live young. A pegasus will mature at the same rate as a horse, however, and have somewhat similar habits.
A pegasus will serve as an aerial steed to a good natured humanoid.
Many pegasi revere the god Eachthighern and Lurue. On Evermeet, their queen is Yathaghera. Pegasi lay eggs in nests high in the mountains, where only flying creatures can reach. These eggs are incredibly valuable on the market.
