"Never underestimate how quickly a Capricorn can introduce your chest to its horns and don't think for a second you can outrun it." - Caelum Milanesi, Silverymoon Hunter

Physical Description[edit]


Capricorns are large tall humanoid beasts which appear to be half man, half goat. Tall and intimidating in size they are known for their physical strength, toughness and agility. The most notable feature in a Capricorn is their large horns which protrude out of their head. They also have hooves rather than feet and are covered with a thick layer of fur. Capricorns also tend to have a semi-exoskeleton, as their bones can often grow outside of their bodies, such as their chest and skull.


Capricorns are wild intelligent beings that roam the lands of Faerun. Exotic and few in numbers, these creatures will approach combat cautiously and are excellent hunters and trackers. Not much is known about them as they do not tend to have a culture of their own, however, they are known by Druid kind as intelligent majestic beasts that can sometimes rival their own intellect and wisdom. They will often claim wide territory and act otherwise nomadic in that area, although it is not unusual for a Capricorn to not claim territory at all and wander the lands freely.

Because of their exotic nature, many of the rare creatures are taken into slavery or become arena fighters. These Capricorns express a deep hatred for cultured societies and when freed often go on rampages to exact revenge on their capture. In extremely rare cases, Capricorns become servants of Demons or become Demons themselves. These Capricorns are especially deadly and are amongst the strongest of their kin.


Capricorns live in the northern part of Faerun, often roaming the forests and plains. They will often live a solitude life, although it is not unknown for Capricorns to form small pacts with their kind or similar creatures. When it is time to mate, individuals of their species will seek out another of their kind, following any tracks they might find of a possible suitor. Male Capricorns will often fight other males for territory rights and for mating rights within that area if a female is found there.

Capricorn Names[edit]

Capricorn's often give their children first names only, as do not tend to have families.
