Bovidae Kingdom
The ancient spirits guide you, and may a goat lead you home.


Dragons with familiars are not for sale. I am a fodder flipping/exalting lair.
Humble goat farmers were attacked in the treacherous mountains of Dragonhome. In the turmoil, the children were protected by a single nanny goat that fended off vicious beasts. After this attack, the family could not continue their journey and settled in the mountains. Over the years, that original family grew and split apart into six different families, each claiming a part of the mountain range and a specific skill set.
The Donnelly, brute force fighters, control the cliffs. The O'Hannigan study magic and have claimed the caves. The Cooney, researchers and scientists, have taken the mountain passes. The Desmond have a passion for medicine and operate within the center of the mountains. The Doran, engineers and agricultural experts, have taken the valley. The Callaghan are wilderness survivalist, they live in and protect the borders. Together, all six families are known as the Bovidae Kingdom.
208.png The ruling, royal family is decided with every new leader of the current royal family through a battle of the goats, raised by each family. The friendly competition prevents in-fighting and blood being spilled on the dry earth. The currently ruling family is the Donnelly, who have won every match for the past thousand years. The second ruling class are the family heads, picked through a family's specific conditions.
Beastclans are also considered part of the kingdom and have a chance to compete for the royal title. There have been several Beastclan leaders. The relationship between the beasts and the dragons is a peaceful, helpful one. Everyone that calls themselves a Bovidae is family and deserves a good life within the kingdom.

495.png Bovidae history is filled with blood and conquest, expanding the kingdom through a large, desolate mountain range by force. Yet in recent generations, the Bovidae have begun to grow more peaceful and now only battle those that threaten Bovidae allies or the kingdom itself. Despite their new peaceful ways, the Bovidae remain fierce warriors who have no fear of death and no concept of surrender.
Refugees, from any kingdom or clan, of dragon or beast blood, is welcomed to Bovidae. There is always room. The Bovidae open their arms to new cultural traditions, taking great pride in countless festivals and practices. The only two rules that must be followed include doing no harm to the goats or dodos of the kingdom, and seek solutions to troubles peacefully. Everything else is considered common sense.

But watch yourself. The mountains are filled with strange wonders from around the world that congregate in the welcoming arms of the Bovidae Kingdom. Ancient, forgotten gods, creatures that paint the sky with stars, angels and demons, and other strange things gather. But not all are friendly. Not all have good wishes towards life.

Carry your weapon of choice on your side. Never travel alone. Don't enter the ancient forests without a seasoned guide. Don't stray into unmarked caves. Keep out of the old mines. Don't follow voices you cannot see during the day, only at night.

Be prepared at all times for the worst, but welcoming for the best.

The mountains are watching you. If you respect their power they will protect you. Scoff at them and not even the Bovidae can save you.

Walk lightly. Stay smart. Be cautious.

May the Earthshaker and the ancient spirits protect you.

And may a goat lead you home.

Hello! Are you planning to breed Hess and Celes again? If so, I'd love to see the hatchlings and maybe get one similar to their son. Thank you in advance!
