|Species||Magical Beast (Chimera)|
The Conopeni is a creature with origins in Middle Eastern mythology, legend and folklore. In particular, accounts of their existence first arise in the mythology, legend and folklore of Iran (formerly Persia).
While the Conopenii has a large, muscular, powerful body like that of a horse, its head (ie ears, snout) are that of a donkey. Length and color of their coats can be anywhere within the range natural for horses or donkeys.
These creatures are known to have quite the temperament. They can be as difficult to break as the most obstinate wild horse, and as eager to buck and kick as the most ornery donkey. They can be painstakingly loyal or hold quite the impressive grudge, depending on how they may be broken in as domestic animals.
While its physical fitness matches that of the strongest horse or donkey specimens, the Conopeni stands apart by its ability to breathe fire from its nostrils and mouth.
