Kokapi wrangling on the mesa
The mysterious Shadowalkers are part stealth weaponry-part sculptural deference. Their movements cannot be calculated nor expected. They are near silent even with brisk movements. They can take refuge in the smallest of space or the ability to increase in size to fill a space exponentially bigger then themselves. The Shadowalkers travel in small herds of 3-5 and their colors vary from black to white to red-their height varies from 8 ft to 12 feet.

The Arbox, like the Kokapi, are part of the Equidae family of creatures. Their horns are composed of exfoliating bone and their demeanor if generally playful-they enjoy being ridden and are about 20 hands tall of larger. Their herd size ranges from 3-9 and they are very social.
Also known as the Dreameaters-the Kokapi are unique in their electro-luminescent glow which activates with the sunset each evening. They are a rare breed in the Equidae family because they are generally nocturnal. Kokapi can grow as tall as 12 feet tall and when on their hind legs can reach-if only for a few seconds to a height of nearly 20 ft. They travel in small packs of 2-7 and are specifically located in the Sonoran Desert region of the U.S. The herd has a dedicated docent and is often accompanied by their Shepard.
From the twisted mind of the infamous Papa Boneshaker-a custom genetic machination of ancient flying contraption, kinetic sculpture, 4 legged stilt creature complete with bio electric feedback and on board effects ranging from hi tech led lighting to triggered pyrotechnics.
