|fauna2desc    = The Ithanian Lait-Blanc is a bovine of elegant poise originating from Ithania, where it survived and was refined from an earlier species which was lost in the [[Cataclysm]] and [[Wildering]] that consumed [[Daen]]. The animal is well known for its links to the moon in [[Ithanian]] [[Culture]], as well as for its pure, pre-pasteurized milk produced thanks to a unique internal organ and the consumption of [[Fireweed]]. As a result, it is usually used as a dairy cow and the goods made from its pure white milk give it its name and some fame in the culinary world.

|fauna3    = [[Lesser Wooly Narggoth]]
+
|fauna3    = [[Gallovian Geep]]
|fauna3desc   = Shuffling through the dense forests that line the western coast of [[Daendroc]], the Lesser Wooly Narggoth lives among the undergrowth of the towering jungle. Having been originally discovered by nelfin hunters from the Early [[Elven Empire]], the Lesser Wooly Narggoth is a smaller subspecies of Narggoth that survives off eating the roots of various jungle plants. Kept by some [[Orcs]] as guard pets, Lesser Wooly Narggoth are an aggressive little ball of fur capable of goring larger opponents with their horns. Today, they are common among both Orcs and [[Cielothar]] as a commodity, used both domestically as pets, as well as a food source and, are often raised by both races to produce milk and other products.
+
|fauna3desc     = The Gallovian Geep is a creature covered in dark colored wool that has adapted to the rocky terrain of [[Gallovia]]. The Geep has unknown origins, with some assuming the [[Elves]] brought it to the region from elsewhere in [[Aloria]] while others feel they are native to the mountains that cover the island in which they inhabit. Regardless of their origins, the Gallovian Geep has provided milk, wool, and meat for the native Gallovians for over two centuries. In recent years, their numbers near the main cities have been reduced as the Gallovians pull them back to the mountains to prevent them from being bred into average sheep and goat stocks.  
  
|fauna4    = [[Greater Wooly Narggoth]]
+
|fauna4    = [[Shadow Bovine]]
|fauna4desc   = Shaking the earth with each terrible step, the Greater Wooly Narggoth is the heaviest mammal that roams the fields of [[Daendroc]]. Standing at an impressive ten feet tall and weighing more than a metric ton, these beasts of burden are trained by the [[Orcs]] of the region to serve both in the various holds of different harrkh and on the battlefield as a terrifying mount. Its appearance is similar to that of a large bison, though with much greater density of muscle mass, three pairs of horns, and a third eye on the top of the head. Records show that the species has lived in the region that now makes up the Orcish homeland for millennia, with scholars and hunters of the Early [[Elven Empire]] keeping records of when to avoid the area to prevent being trampled by the beasts during mating season. As the Orcs entered into the region, they found the beasts pleasantly aggressive and began attempting to domesticate them. After a few decades, and several dozen deaths, the beasts were finally tamed. Today, the shaggy bison is a beast of burden for the green skinned Orcs, and can occasionally be seen being ridden into battle by raiding parties.
+
|fauna4desc     = The Shadow Bovine is one of the most unfortunate animals in [[Aloria]] and is the primary source of meat for the [[Kathar]]-led [[Dread Empire]] in the [[Far West]] of Aloria. The beast was produced through carefully applied [[Void]] mutations on a long-dead species of bovine, making the animals larger, forcing them to mature rapidly and reproduce at an amazingly quick rate. They also became extremely aggressive and serve as the pinnacle of domesticated Void wildlife for the Kathar, proving to their population that anything can be twisted into the perfect tool through the use of the Void.
  
|fauna5    = [[Gallovian Geep]]
+
|fauna5    = [[Sheep]]
|fauna5desc    = The Gallovian Geep is a creature covered in dark colored wool that has adapted to the rocky terrain of [[Gallovia]]. The Geep has unknown origins, with some assuming the [[Elves]] brought it to the region from elsewhere in [[Aloria]] while others feel they are native to the mountains that cover the island in which they inhabit. Regardless of their origins, the Gallovian Geep has provided milk, wool, and meat for the native Gallovians for over two centuries. In recent years, their numbers near the main cities have been reduced as the Gallovians pull them back to the mountains to prevent them from being bred into average sheep and goat stocks.  
+
|fauna5desc    = Sheep are long domesticated animals well known to the [[Ailor]] of [[Aloria]], likely originating from the ancient continent of [[Ceardia]]. Useful for their shearable wool, which can be made into cloth for garments, the animal spread with Ailor across Aloria wherever they went and has diversified into several breeds based on region and cultural taste. The animal is also useful for its meat, with mutton being a common meat next to fish, pork and beef in the culinary creations of many [[Races]]. Their extreme herd mentality can be somewhat troublesome, but it also makes them easily controlled.
  
|fauna6    = [[Shadow Bovine]]
+
|fauna6    = [[Goat]]
|fauna6desc    = The Shadow Bovine is one of the most unfortunate animals in [[Aloria]] and is the primary source of meat for the [[Kathar]]-led [[Dread Empire]] in the [[Far West]] of Aloria. The beast was produced through carefully applied [[Void]] mutations on a long-dead species of bovine, making the animals larger, forcing them to mature rapidly and reproduce at an amazingly quick rate. They also became extremely aggressive and serve as the pinnacle of domesticated Void wildlife for the Kathar, proving to their population that anything can be twisted into the perfect tool through the use of the Void.
+
|fauna6desc    = Goats have been a longstanding member of the agricultural community across [[Aloria]]. Likely originating on [[Ceardia]] with the ancient [[Ailor]], they were spread as the Ailor spread, from within the holds of [[Altalar]] slave ships to the ships of those departing Ceardia for better pastures beyond the constant warfare. Eventually, the Goat became widespread to the point of commonality and it is now used by many [[Races]], the result being several different breeds suiting a variety of climates, terrains, and tastes.
  
|fauna7    = [[Sheep]]
+
|fauna7    = [[Wooly White Bison]]
|fauna7desc    = Sheep are long domesticated animals well known to the [[Ailor]] of [[Aloria]], likely originating from the ancient continent of [[Ceardia]]. Useful for their shearable wool, which can be made into cloth for garments, the animal spread with Ailor across Aloria wherever they went and has diversified into several breeds based on region and cultural taste. The animal is also useful for its meat, with mutton being a common meat next to fish, pork and beef in the culinary creations of many [[Races]]. Their extreme herd mentality can be somewhat troublesome, but it also makes them easily controlled.
+
|fauna7desc    = The Wooly White Bison is a wholly domesticated bovine closely tied to the [[Orcs]], as they brought it with them from their homeland during the Great Leaving. Of impressive size and weight, the Bison is still surprisingly quick on its hooves, and while often used as a source of meat and labor, it has also seen use as a mount in Orcish armies. They are known for their bright white coat, but also for the impressive Lug-Bison, a mutation in the species which produces huge, impressive beasts of great size and strength which lead their herds across their grazing fields and plains. The Wooly White Bison is heavily devoted to Orcs, so much so that they will become aggressive and wild should they lack the presence of one, which means that the two are always located near each other.
  
|fauna8    = [[Goat]]
 
|fauna8desc    = Goats have been a longstanding member of the agricultural community across [[Aloria]]. Likely originating on [[Ceardia]] with the ancient [[Ailor]], they were spread as the Ailor spread, from within the holds of [[Altalar]] slave ships to the ships of those departing Ceardia for better pastures beyond the constant warfare. Eventually, the Goat became widespread to the point of commonality and it is now used by many [[Races]], the result being several different breeds suiting a variety of climates, terrains, and tastes.

Aloria is rich in both fauna and flora. This page specifically is dedicated to all recorded, extinct or still living, animals that roam the world of Aloria. All animals are split into their relevant categories. Keep in mind that this list is not final and will be added to when necessary. As a player you may claim one of the animals and try to write a Player Lore Prompt, though remind yourself to consult Lore staff about any relevant descriptions! Anyone is permitted to Roleplay a domesticated feline, canine, or songbird where applicable. For any other wild animal, please consult Lore staff as some animals are too wild and hostile to survive in an urban city like Regalia.
