Hircus are humanoid goats, still retaining their flopping ears, horns, and fur of their feral counterparts. Hircus fur is normally white like their animal counterpart, but is sometimes brown, black, and gray, with some being solid color, some with highlights, and some speckle.

History

Hircus come from the Underdark, but unlike most creatures from the Underdark, are generally viewed as upstanding members of society, good leaders, and steadfast friends. In the Underdark the Hircus survived by making strong familial bonds, their inherent fire magic and adept use of weapons. Many Hircus migrated from the Underdark under the leadership of King Asgore, and formed their own kingdom on the surface, known as the Delta Kingdom. This kingdom is known to be negotiation hotspot, with many kingdom's coming there to make peace. The kingdom is also known for its rare Golden Buttercup Flowers, beautiful yellow flowers that make a even better tea. These were treasured by the Hircus in the Underdark, and are now the Delta Kingdom’s biggest export.

Society

Hircus are in many societies. Most of them being in leadership roles or caretakers. There are also kingdom's ruled by Hircus. Most Hircus are very loyal to friends and family. However, they are not distrustful of others, and are very open to other races, even so far as to take in other races in as one of their own. Hircus seem to be natural-born leaders and caretakers, and also seem to prefer non-violent methods of conflict over the alternative, but will not back down if it is the only way to solve a problem; They are adept in combat with their inherent magic and many weapons.
