Gleaming Destrier

The destriers are similar to large, strong horses at first glance, and all have gleaming coats and flowing manes and tails. Colors tend toward white, either pure or patched. Their eyes give away the destrier’s heightened intelligence, and they can even understand some language. They form fierce bonds with their riders and prove to be potent allies on the battlefield.
