Half Minotaur[edit]

Half-Minotaurs are usually hot-headed and stubborn. They're mistrustful people in general, typically because they have had troubled childhoods and/or have been chased out of towns and scorned by people for their appearance/race. Due to this, they tend to be wanderers of sorts and live in the wilderness.

Physical Description[edit]

Half-Minotaurs resemble humans for the majority and as such are medium creatures. The average male is around 6′ 6″ tall and the average female is around 6′ 1″ tall. The average male weighs at least 230 pounds, whereas the average female weighs at least 180 pounds. Most of the time their skin color matches their human parent, but Half-Minotaurs can also have tan, red, brown, white, gray, and black skin colors. Half-Minotaurs can have most feasible eye colors, though red and violet are very rare. Hair colors tend to be brown, black, white, gray, and red, though red is rare for them. Just about all Half-Minotaurs have horns, even the females. When generating a Half-Minotaur, if you feel the need, roll a percentile die. 1% have no horns. Some Half-Minotaurs have hooves, but this is an uncommon trait, about a 10% chance. Half-Minotaurs have about a 40% chance to have a tail. Most Half-Minotaurs tend to grow more hair than humans and in more places. It's about a 5% chance for a Half-Minotaur to grow hair over their entire body.


Shunned by both their human and minotaur cultures, half-minotaurs usually travel alone in a nomadic fashion.

Half-Minotaur Names[edit]

Half-minotaurs are usually named by their mothers if not orphaned. If the half-minotaur is orphaned and not adopted, it goes nameless until it learns a language and names itself something that it identifies within the language they learn. Names can differ based on what's common in the region they live in.
