Chocobo Knight (5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
The Chocobo Knights in the past were all Moogles a small race rarely found in the multiverse. Because of their small size it made them ideal riders of the large feathered birds they raised called Chocobos. The secret to raising a chocobo was in the feeding of Gysahl Greens a plant that was at one point only grown by Moogles. The Moogles have since passed on their knowledge to other small races such as Gnomes, Halflings, and what remains of the Moogle race. The Chocobo Knight combines the power of the chocobo along with their magical and martial skills to be a dominate foe to face. Together they are a capable force that even those within their same order fear facing each other in combat. Chocobo Knights are masters of mounted combat and can use most weapons effectively. They are gutsy, some times overly brave, and often are the first in combat the cry of their Chocobos heard loud and clear.
