The minotaurs are a race of humanoid bovines, fiercely loyal towards Severn, the Manipulator as a rule. Originally, the minotaurs, one among the thousands of species created by Haern, were dull, weak beasts that stood upon the brink of extinction. Seeing their plight, Severn took pity upon the minotaurs' condition, and gave them the gift of cunning in exchange for their loyalty to Him. The majority of the minotaur population resides in the village of Sterion, nestled deep within the Tarean mountain range near Mount Gallows. The physical link between the Shadow Plane and the Prime is ensconced within the village, rendering it a key point of contention during the various Shadow invasions.
