    I love how it looks like a Chocobo, but not to a legally-objectionable extent!

      The idea of using large birds or bird-like creatures as mounts is far older than the Final Fantasy series. We love the rich lore from past mythologies, and this is a concept that appeared in ancient mythology before it ever graced a fairy tale or fantasy epic.

      We wanted to do our own fun and unique take on ostrich riding, seen in real life (would love to try that sometime!) that a number of different fantasy properties and other works of fiction have done. As mentioned in another comment, we wanted to make ours fairly unique, so we spent a long time designing these guys, and decided to make ours chimeric, which means a hybrid of different animals, which you can really see in the muzzle (these creatures don’t have beaks for example, like a bird would) which is more like a ruminant.

    Wolf, bird, horse????

    • Gatsumann says:

      It’s our own species we made for this world (we spent a lot of time designing it!) They are “chimeric” and so have different animal attributes in them, there is definitely bird, and some ruminant animal DNA in there, and possibly some others….more detail to come in the future! They functionally serve the equivalent to horses in Wukrii.

    Discount Chocobo?

      Hey Nick, I will share what I posted elsewhere in the comments. The idea of using large birds or bird-like creatures as mounts is far older than the Final Fantasy series. We love the lore from past mythologies, and this is a concept that appeared in ancient mythology before it ever graced a fairy tale or fantasy epic. We based some of the characteristics on the prehistoric Dromeosaurs.

      We wanted to do our own fun and unique take on ostrich riding, a sport seen in real life, that a number of different fantasy properties and other works of fiction have done. As mentioned in another comment, we wanted to make ours fairly unique, so we spent a long time designing these guys, and decided to make ours chimeric, which means a hybrid of different animals.

      We don’t want to spoil all those details, but the body is definitely bird-like, although their wings can out stretch a bit more than a typical riding ostrich and a bit more like the domerosaur. The face is more like a ruminant combined with a canine (it doesn’t have a beak), and the tail is quite long like a cat’s, but just happens to be feathered, like some prehistoric animals that share similar DNA with creatures from today. It also has two large ears, somewhat similar to what a fox or even a feline creature would have.
