The looks of a Minotaur vary. The basis is that if a human male's body with the head of a bull. The muscle mass expanded and also taking on characteristics of a bull. While human in form, the sheer size of the Minotaur can seem overwhelming. They can stand anywhere from 6-9 feet tall, and most weigh from 180-350 lbs. A fur-like hair covers their bodies and ranges in colors, chiefly grey, brown, and black. Minotaurs DO NOT have hooves. They are not Centaur.


Minotaurs value the idea of honor above all else. They believe the strong should rule under the premise that a ruler should enforce the honor code when needed. Though maintaining a keen eye and extremely cunning, Minotaurs are better known for their refusal to back down from any challenge, whether verbal or physical, because of the view that retreat is a sign of weakness. Since retreating is frowned upon, a Minotaur will only retreat when there is absolutely no chance of victory; anything less, and the Minotaur will persevere until the end. Due to the reverence of honor of Minotaurs, the creatures will offer their respect to those who deserve it, namely those who act honorably.

Minotaur Society

Minotaur society is separated by castes as follows:

Most Powerful

  • Ruling class - those suited for being the mind of the government
  • Religious class - those who interpret and study the religious beliefs and practices of the society
  • Enforcement class - the police force
  • Commoners - everyone else

For a commoner to rise to a higher caste, the Minotaur passes an initiation battle with an appropriate official. As the Minotaurs hold honor in high esteem, these initiation battles occur between individuals of equal skill and/or equipment.

Of all the races of Hollow, the Minotaur respect the Elf, Dwarf, and Dryad. Most Minotaurs live in what is now known as Larket and respect the Queen. They are very few in numbers, and most tend to be part of tightly knit family structures or tribes. Minotaur society is honorable and righteous. Law and order is the key to life.

Minotaurs & Religion

Minotaurs are born into two groups: warriors and monks of Aramoth. The race shows respect to all gods, but none is praised, followed, and worshiped like Aramoth. It is a Minotaur's honor to serve and die for Aramoth on the field of battle.

Minotaur History

The history of the race and where it began in Hollow.

Minotaurs are massive human-looking creatures, nearly nine feet tall. Minotaurs have the heads of bulls on a human body, and the fur that covers them can range in color, though brown and black are the most common. The legend comes from a story once told that a man wanted to be as strong as a bull, so a God turned him into a Minotaur. They obviously are one of the strongest races in Hollow, and without suffering the same simple-mindedness that plagues ogres and giants. However, they still cannot use magic easily, if at all. All Minotaurs are male and must breed with a female of another race; every child born from a Minotaur is male and Minotaur.

Once, an honorable and proud race of human warriors lived in what was once called Tritan. The men of the village lived for battle and dedicated their very lives to strength and power. It was in this village that five tribes existed. Each tribe was always at war to claim status as an alpha tribe within the village. The members of the tribes who did not live for war were in service as monks. The gods were all respected, but Aramoth, God of War, was often on the village prayers' receiving end. Countless battles took place for years until five tribes became three. The weakest of the tribes, Madurnaut, cursed their enemies and begged the gods for power and more strength than any other men. The small yet proud tribes monks and warriors alike pleaded and demanded the gods to make them as strong as bulls to defeat all their enemies. Enraged by the tribe's demands, the gods delivered the request, yet in the form of a curse rather than a blessing. From that point on, all men of the tribe Madurnaut were transfigured and morphed into Minotaurs. A human body with the head of a bull. All muscle mass expanded and enhanced, strength beyond any human warrior's grasp.

The gods had answered the tribe, but with a high cost. No longer were any daughters born into the tribe's line. Only males were brought into the world, and all were born Minotaurs. The tribe was forced to breed outside even the human race, yet no matter what they did, the same outcome. The need to produce was more than often the only use the race had for females, but due to a decline in war, warriors' need was not as great. More and more Minotaur abandoned the warrior life for that of the peaceful existence of monk life. It took decades to become at peace with their curse and develop as a real race of Hollow. The warriors that were left were often hunted and run into seclusion by the increasing human population. The people of the land feared the beast-like "monsters" and their great strengths. The Minotaur race no longer thirsts for absolute power and war, though never backs down from a challenge and is quick to defend their homelands. A common myth is that Minotaurs are dumb and brute-like creatures, but they possess all the intelligence and cunning that any sophisticated human might portray. Most Minotaurs live in what is today known as Larket, but several villages and camps exist throughout Hollow. Of all the land's inhabitants, it is the elves and dwarves that Minotaurs respect the most. The majority of drow and humans are likely not welcomed at a Minotaur dwelling. An age-old feud with the Centaur race thrives, but the origins of the conflict are unknown. Minotaurs never serve evil willingly and put little to no faith in magics of any kind.
