Name: Birtha Cree (Named for the Indian tribe, not the alien empire)
*Nickname: Life Rider
Personality: Compassionate and caring, but still very factual and in some cases pessimistic.
Abilities: She can go without water longer than most, and can survive in greater heat from living in the desert. She is also hailed as a beast-whisperer, because of her ability to tame the wild Outland creatures like the one on which she rides.
*Important Details: She will often assist weary Dengel travelers (regardless of their faction or race) by giving them meet and drink, or showing them the way to go, hence here nickname. She is a Nomad, setting up a tent to sleep at night, and moving during the day. About once a year she will come into the City of the Fallen (by the way, what's the cities actual name in the story?) to stock up on whatever supplies she can't make or find out in the wilderness.
Another question- if there're no God or Satan in this story, who rules heaven and hell? Or are they direct democracies with no specific rulers?
Now, a creature
Species Name: Dune Wanderer
Personality Traits: Normally peaceful, but vicious when disturbed, hence their moniker as "savage beasts". They live in large herds of up to twenty, and nurture their young. They also give live birth.
Physical traits: 15 feet in length, and about eight feet in hight. At the tip of its two humps, ten feet high. They have large, curving, mammoth-like tusks. The males' tusks are larger than the females'. These are not for battle, however. They are more ornamental, generally used to attract a mate, like peacock's feathers. They have small trunks, in order to reach water underground. They access this water by digging with their massive, aardvark-like claws. They have short, muscular tales, but the fur on the tips of those tales can grow to at least two feet. This 'plumage' is used to fan away biting flies. Their faces bear whiskers (like a cat) to see if they can fit through a space. This is great for navigating the wilderness' many caverns and canyons. Their teeth are flat like most herbivores. They have a short, thin, striped coat, like a Tasmanian Tiger. They eat the sparse, desert plants by digging them up by the roots with their claws. They store fat in their humps like camels. When it comes time to mate and breed every season, they go to the same desert oasis where they were born, much in the way salmon swim back upstream to spawn. Some Dune wanderers have been domesticated by Outlanders. Their milk and meat are staples of the Outlander diet. Specifically, Bertha rides one named Ardy.
*Special Details: They're numbers are currently dwindling, as they are being poached by hunters for the ivory in their tusks. Their main natural predator is the Wild Shadow. I don't feel like describing another entire creature, so just think of hyena things that hunt by night in packs.
