+
|fauna15desc = The Calemberger Dobs is a medium to large sized dog that is the third generation from the [[Calemberger Ardhund]], being bred out from the [[Calemberger Hausweiler]] to be a more proper breed for the military elite. With the formal integration of the [[New Regalian]] [[Ailor]] into the [[Regalian Empire]] the need for guard dogs became less a necessity and more a cultural nod, and with that a new dog was needed to fill this mascot role, the Calemberger Dobs. In the modern-day there is seldom a prominent New Regalian household or top-ranking general that lacks one of these stoic and proud breeds.

+
|fauna16desc = The Calemberger Hausweiler is medium to large-sized dog and a direct ancestor of the [[Calemberger Ardhund]], being bred to fulfill the [[New Regalian]] agenda of pushing back the [[Skagger Horde]]. Being a capable hunter as well as a guard dog, the Hausweiler became quickly adopted by the New Regalians who took up roles in the military of the [[Regalian Empire]]. Over time this military role was given to the [[Calemberger Dobs]], but even still, the Calemberger Hausweiler remains popular as a companion for various guard groups.

|fauna17desc = The Calemberger Ardhund is a medium to large-sized breed, whose history goes back to the days of the [[Wirtemcaller Kingdom]] before the [[New Regalian]] [[Ailor]] formally formed in the area around the modern-day Lordship of [[Calemberg]]. What began as a hunting dog in the various forests, this breed was later developed to be a faithful guard against the incursion of the [[Skagger Horde]] and their aggression towards the Wirtemcaller generals by the year 70 AC. In the modern-day, the Calemberger Ardhund has continued its original design as a hunting dog of choice for big game hunters in the Calem regions as well as a guard dog for those with aggressive foes on the field of battle.

|fauna12desc = The Temple Orphan is the greatest horror which stalks [[Solangeria]] and is responsible for the vast majority of deaths among explorers who dare to venture into its deep jungles. Temple Orphans are relatively rare, but seek to draw intruders to them with their mimicry, especially those who enter Solangeria’s mysterious ruins. Various mythical tales as to their origin exist among various peoples who have made contact with them and survived. Temple Orphans carry their name because, while passive, they emit a whine which sounds eerily similar to a crying baby. As soon as their prey comes close enough, the sound stops, their head turns, and death follows shortly. It should be noted the Temple Orphans do not actually hunt their prey for sustenance; these creatures have never been witnessed to consume any of their victims or indeed any food at all. It simply kills for the sake of killing.

|fauna13desc = The Frost Wyvern is a mysterious creature endemic to [[Ellador]] that serves as the primary mount of the [[Isldar]] race. These winged animals were never seen before the [[Cataclysm]], leading most to assume that the creatures were beasts left over from the [[Fifth Void Invasion]] or somehow the lesser offspring of the [[Great Ice Dragon]]. Regardless of their origins, the creatures have proven dangerous in combat against wild animals and other sentient races. Given the recent conflict in Ellador, some [[Northern]] nations fear the day that snowstorms will come bearing these creatures hiding inside them.

These winged animals were rendered extinct before the [[Cataclysm]] but were miraculously revived in 150 AC through some unknown means. The creatures have proven dangerous in combat against wild animals and other sentient Races who have tangled with the Isldar. Given the recent conflict in Ellador, some Velheim nations fear the day that great snowstorms will come bearing these creatures hiding inside them for more than just a scouting visit.

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!
