Minotaurs have the head of a bull, the body of a man, and are extremely hairy. They can range anywhere from 7 to 9 feet tall, and weigh anywhere from 300lbs to 500lbs. Minotaurs can have red, brown, gray, and black skin and fur colors. They are disliked by most races because of their totalitarian way of leading their people, their unrelenting violence to all non-minotaurs, and the sadistic cruelty their clerics show to sacrifices.

Physical Description[edit]

Minotuar by Wisnu Tan, Source

Minotaur have the appearance of a 7-9' tall humanoid with a bull's head, a bovine tail, and broad, stubby hands and feet. Their body is covered with coarse black, brown, red, or grey hair. Their horns curved downward and outward. Most often seen wielding a large axe or hammer.


The minotaur are a secretive and shy race, never eagerly interacting with other races. Their civilizations usually consist of a large labyrinthine corridors fashioned with intricate carvings and hieroglyphs depicting the long and glorious history of these bovine-headed humanoids. The exact history of these monstrous beings varies with the world they are portrayed in, but always one thing is constant: their love of cave systems and mazes.
