A tanned brown egg sit in front of you with a small, stubby tail sticking out of it.
Naturally very dangerous, predatory creatures, nandi bears can be found on the borderlands of the Etain Desert and the land of Voltar. Always hungry, nandi bears have obtained a bad reputation for eating humans as a last resort when there are no more food sources available. Local tribesmen believe them to be the incarnation of evil spirits and they are feared throughout the world. No one save for the brave magi will even attempt to hunt them down. When trained by magi, however, these creatures are much like a large canine - very loyal to their magi, but with the ferocity of a wild cat. When searching for these elusive creatures, it is hard to recognize the shapes if they are far away. Nandi bears have many different color variations, making them similar in color to many other desert dwelling creatures and difficult to spot. One of the major problems with nandi bears is in obtaining their eggs. Nandi bears are very protective of their young, as well as their family. If you are able to distract a wild nandi bear long enough to get an egg, you are in for a journey that ends in a very protective, loyal friend.
