The Pyrassoupi is a creature with origins in Arabian mythology, legend and folklore, especially in the account On Monsters and Marvels, by Ambrose Pare.
A Pyrassoupi has the shape and size of a mule, shaggy yellowish-brown hair like a bear, and cloven hooves. It also has two twisted horns protruding from its forehead, which resemble those of a unicorn.
Naturally, there is a certain physical strength, durability and stamina allotted by the Pyrassoupi's size, though this is about the same level as any other creature of that size range. Its true offensive capability arises, of course, from its hooves and its horns.
Though, it is known that the horns of the Pyrassoupi also have a sort of indirect healing power. That is, any water in which the creature's horns are dipped may be used as an antidote against snake venom.
