Only appearance: Savage Empire

The Hyracotherium of Eodon is the ancestor of the modern-day horses. However, they are still wild, but peaceful animals. Leaving them be should ensure that they won't become any threat at all.

Lore[edit]

This small animal (some two feet in total length) is more commonly known as the eohippus, or "dawn horse." As the name suggest, it is the ancestor of modern horses. It dates to the early Eocene era (around 55 million years ago). It is very common in the Valley of Eodon, especially in the northern plains, where the natives hunt it for its hide and meat. (It is in no immediate danger of extinction, being a prolific breeder and a very good runner.)
