The beast, or mountain calf by the locals, is a large, yak-like creature that spends most of it's time grazing grass and other green herbs. They are very docile and can easily be tamed for many purposes. Many mountain villages use this herbivore for transportation due to their bulk strength and endurance. They can survive in incredibly cold climates and are very adaptable. The beast is a common prey for many species of large dragons, and their abundant numbers can support an entire species for many decades. Their fur can fetch quite a price once weaved into jumpers, scarves and other clothings, their meat is very delicious, commonly used in slow cooking like stews or baked like the sheperd's pie, and their milk is used to make ice creams.
