Questri - Beje and Zokov by Kairu-Hakubi Questri - Beje and Zokov by Kairu-Hakubi
I pored over like 10 oldetyme mammals, knowing I wanted elements from a lot of them, to make a unique "horse." to contrast Daska. The three-toed hooves for sure, some baluchitherium stuff, a bunch of those weirdos with the various odd horns or ossicones.. but eventually just settled on this. It still wasn't very special, though, until I looked up an Indian rhino to get the armor folds really distinct, and realized holy shit what if it was made of wood? (earlier I'd been wanting to texture one of them like a cactus or something)
so I'm going to say that little shaman guy named Murichi Beje created Zokov out of some trees with tree magic or something. He couldn't reasonably wield a useful weapo up there, so he summons a little zappy ghost to fling at people.

That begs the question: What if there were some other mounts that embodied the traditional Chinese elements? (Fire, water, earth, air, metal, and wood)

Hmm, there is a metal robot...   I resisted the urge to throw elemental powers around like mad, even though I like those a lot, because I didn't want to cheapen the normal-types, and because it's a race and not about combat primarily. Instead, I figured there would be elementally-themed racetracks and lots of obstacles/monsters along the way like ice-breath manuls and toxic sludge boars.

I meant more along the lines of designs. For example, the 'fire' creature could be a monstrous bug-horse with bitchin' flame decals.

Yep! It'd also double as an homage to the Pyrausta, a mythical dragon-insect that lived in fire.
