A placid plant feeding pachyderm easily recognized by its long and powerful trunk which it uses to collect food, convey water to the mouth, for smelling, and for lifting. Like the gnoof, it has dexterous feet with large bulbous toes enabling it to radiate heat. The mektoub makes an ideal mount or pack animal once tamed. Grazes all over Atys.[1]

Colloquially, mektoubs can be referred to as meks (or a mek in singular form).

Uses

A mektoub mount

Mektoubs in this day and age are primarily used as pack animals or mounts. Due to their resilient nature they can carry heavy loads and homins alike quickly and efficiently from one point to another.

In the desert town of Dyron mektoubs can almost througout the whole day be seen in the oasis lake idling away while their masters are foraging for the desert's riches. The reason for this is that predators do not normally chase their prey into the water, leaving the mektoubs safe from the dangers only a stonethrow away from Dyron.

As mounts, mektoubs serve as a speedy transport medium to and from anywhere on the bark, while racing atop a mektoub is also a popular sport among all races.

Main Details
