The Magnoceroi (singular: Magnoceros) are a race of furry quadrupeds, with a prominent single horn. They lived around Mount Joerlak until its eruption, after which they headed north to find refuge. According to the master-smiths of Mount Joerlak, Magnoceroi horns are more precious than any alloy. This led the Magnoceroi to frequent and bloody encounters with hunters.[1]


Magnoceroi are notoriously stubborn, and do not believe in chance. Their culture is matriarchal.[1] One day, the Magnoceroi intend to kill those responsible for the Mount Joerlak's eruption, and reclaim their homeland.[2] In battle, the Magnoceroi gore enemies with their horns, trample them under hooves, and run them through with pikes.[3]

An unnamed Magnoceros aided the Dreadknight in attempting to conquest Ostarion's kingdom, but failed. After his death, his skull was made into a pauldron.[4]

  2. Magnus response: ▶️ Since I vowed to reclaim our homeland, I have never made a stauncher oath. But I swear, this one is in the bag.
  3. Magnus response: ▶️ I have long since lost count of however many fools and weaklings I have slain by pike, by horn, or by hoof. Though let me assure you: The process never ceases to be entertaining.
