A baby elderoch is a precious sight, often found following other creatures and humans around as they go about their day. Elderochs are curious, sociable creatures, and make excellent companions. They will often form bonds with humans that they maintain into adulthood, and those who care for them often compare them to faithful hounds for their affection. Although fragile at a young age, they grow quickly, and are soon able to accompany their human caretakers on their journeys.
A rare hybrid of an elred and a delroch, elderochs preserve many of the best qualities of each. They are incredibly strong with impressive fire abilities; they can burn entire fields to ashes with their magic, and even without it, their horns and hooves can be formidable weapons. But they are equally gentle when the situation calls for it, almost never attacking anything that doesn't pose them or their companions a direct threat. In domestic settings, they are good at managing their great flames and bulk alike, able to manage narrow hallways and crowded spaces with surprising delicacy. They are known for their attentiveness, and so make faithful companions. If one is not intimidated by their size, they can make reliable mounts for fire magi.
