Minotaurs of Korovia
Korovian Minotaurs have the heads, hoofs and tails of cattle, but the bodies of large men or women. They are significantly taller (averaging 7 to 8 feet tall), larger and stronger than humans with an excellent sense of smell and are equal in intelligence to humans. Most minotaurs in Korovia have reddish rust-coloured fur, but black, cream and white minotaurs also exist.
Most minotaurs in Korovia, especially Ironskins, prefer to use their naturally tough hide instead of wearing armour. Likewise most minotaurs are law abiding citizens. Minotaur warriors often follow the paths of ascetics, monks, paladins or become Ironskins. Some minotaurs are also known to follow darker paths, but it is very rare since most minotaurs are peace-loving vegetarians.
Minotaurs have no arcane magical talent, but some do become divine clerics or shamans.
Outside of Korovia there is said to be a homeland of minotaurs to the west of Loqland, which would require a long journey through very hostile lands to reach. It is said that the minotaurs of Korovia were once a nomadic tribe who eventually settled in Korovia after being expelled from their ancient homeland.
Through training and devotion, these minotaurs who are a cross between paladins and monks and develop extra hard hides. They devote themselves to avoiding all contact with magic, refuse to wear any of armour, and only use the bare hands, hooves or horns in combat. Ironskins usually wear a kilt and nothing else. They also take a vow of poverty and are strictly vegetarians who follow of code of what they can and cannot eat (eg. cows milk is okay, but any kind of meat or fish is strictly not allowed).
