The Gate-Stones of Lunestriel
The Loxodon were among the original races that called Lunestriel their home before the arrival of the Dowmarii, which means “Portal-Born” in Ancient Lunerii. The Loxodon are of the Lomarii, meaning “Lunar-Born” in Ancient Lunerii. Like the Cranes, they are an old race in Lunestriel.
Stout elephant-like humanoids, Loxodon are big for medium sized creatures. They typically stand at 6’10" to 8’0" feet tall and weigh 380 to 480 pounds. Nearly large size, Loxodon are tough, though their size limits their agility. They have thick skin; their skin tones are usually gray, bluish-gray, or a shade of brown. Black or white loxodon are rare. Their eyes are brown or green. The males are larger than the females. Both sexes have tusks. They have large, thin ears. Loxodon also have a useful trunk which they can use to hold items, though not weapons. Loxodon mature slowly, reaching adulthood at age 50, but live to be 350.
Loxodon are usually quite calm and thoughtful. They highly respect wisdom and carefully thought words and deeds. They generally accept life in either cities or in rural areas, and are easily satisfied. They are accepting of other peoples, though due to their size they often prefer their own company. They get along well with Herglics, with whom they share similar sizes. They are not hasty in their actions, and disapprove of rash thinking. They are well-known for their patience. But anger a loxodon and it may be the last thing you ever do.
