Known Minotaurs

History

In the Age of Arcanum, minotaurs were created as protectors of labyrinths containing treasure and secrets as well as to serve as living siege weapons. After the Divergence, minotaurs mostly retreated to places like intricate cave systems where their innate sense of maze-like places serves them well.[5] In Wildemount, like many other races considered monstrous, minotaurs were welcomed by the Kryn Dynasty,[6] and sometimes interbreed with elves, producing horned half-elves.[7] Still, as of 835 PD there are blood-thirsty minotaurs outside the Dynasty in Xhorhas who have lately posed a threat to the Many Hosts of Igrathad.[8]
