Aether Pegasus

The rare and beautiful golden pegasus



The Aether Pegasi are winged horses very similar to their Pegasi counterparts except for two distinct differences: they are larger and their coat is a golden-white sheen instead of the known white of most Pegasi. Extremely strong and capable creatures, they are extremely rare and are still referred to as animals of folklore legends. While not as rare as the Alicorns, they are nonetheless deeply sought after because their magical powers are a little stronger that that of the ordinary Pegasi. Intelligent by animal standards, they can communicate though not as powerfully as the alicorn and unicorn.

[top]Physical Appearance

The Aether Pegasi are magnificent beasts. Standing at twenty-two hands tall (males) and twenty hands tall (females), their wing-spans and general overall size literally dwarfs that of their predecessors, the white Pegasi. Taut and well-muscled beneath a shiny white-gold coat that ripples with their strength, their wings span at least forty feet and their their hooves are hardened dark metal-like substances the colour of darkened silver. Their lush manes and tails are like moon-kissed silver and they also have more of this hair around their ankles and hooves.

[top]Climate and Terrain

The Aether Pegasi has been sighted all across the empire where a civilian population exists but their home habitat in Aelyria is said to be in the pristine Pegasi Woods on the outskirts of the Prime Principality. Prior to the Xet fog, there were rumors of them living in the Forest of Light in Lauryl. Travelers from Fae'rel also insist that they have seen numerous Aether Pegasi and Pegasi around the magical forests on that continent.


Apples from the Candaceburg agricultural shelves seem to be one of their favourite treats and they prefer juicy wheat and barleys. The few farmers of this area who have claimed to have seen them insist that the dung that the Aether Pegasi deposit on their fields while they come to eat actually make that area of the soil extremely fertile. Being that Candaceburg is already a blessed fertile land, many would find this hard to believe and find it simply as a ruse of getting consumers to buy more of their produce.


There has been sightings of Aether Pegasi in social groups, although it is not uncommon for them to be seen solo. Females are more inclined to be with their young and a group of a few other males and females. They are mainly in herds numbering anything from five to twenty and an alpha male or female normal heads the group. Their flight formations are precise and a beauty to behold and their sense of direction is extremely keen because they know how to tune their minds to the magnetic flux of the four main directions of the compass.


Skilled at using their hooves, wings and teeth as attacking weapons, the Aether-Pegasus are also well-versed in elusive tactics, which makes them all the harder to capture. However, they can be domesticated through sheer patience and by convincing them of no ill-intent. Once caught, domestication is by a gradual display of trust from both the creature and the rider and once a compromise has been reached, they become loyal to their owners. They are also highly resistant to letting others mount them and can be an excellent security measure for the owner.

[top]Special Abilities

Speed, agility, strength and resistance to low level arcane attacks. They have an extremely sharp eye-sight, similar to that of falcons, eagles, hawks; and they are known to have a double sheen of transparent cataracts over their eyes to protect them from fierce winds while flying.


They are immune to common horse ailments. Nothing else is really known about their inherent resistances.

[top]Other Notable Information

The Aether Pegasi have been seen to have developed a certain habit. At the cusp of the beginning of every month, many of them have been rumoured to appear on the banks of the River Ioannes next to the Candaceburg farm fields in the province of Prime. Aether Pegasi are actually serene creatures and are not known to attack except if being presented with the danger of being captured. They love their freedom and when domesticated, can reach their full potential if treated with a respect for their freedom.
