Preyton

Preyton are infamous beasts, blighted in form, incandescent in rage found in the Forest of Arden. [1a]

Preytons kill for sport, leaving corpses in their wake upon which they don’t even bother to feed. Although they do have wings, they seldom fly above the forest canopy, preferring to stalk prey beneath the trees. [1a]

Apearance

Twisted creatures, their forelegs and body resembling a partially-scaled and malformed stag, their hindquarters that of a lion’s. Their equine heads sprout great sharp blackened antlers, have glaring red eyes and multiple rows of jagged fangs. [1a]

Origin

The Priest of Taal, Regimius Braun believes that Beastmen create them with foul rituals from the corpse of a Great Stag. [1a]

Quotes

This at least, I grant you, Master Schreiber — they are not natural beasts. The Preyton hates all life, its own as much as every other, with a hatred so pure that it is madness. They will ignore the sound blows of a knight, in order to ravage a fallen peasant in an unspeakable and ghastly manner. There are entire tribes of Beastmen that hold the Preyton as sacred, worshiping them from afar. Seek them not, save duty or honour compels

~ Sir Carloman, Bretonnian Knight.[1a]
