A huge, fluffy white hippogryph with the simple markings of a swan on his face and green eyes that fade to amber around the centers. He has a crest of feathers on each of his front ankles. His horse half is based on a draft horse, so there is hoof feathering in the back. His tail is long and bony with a curtain of silky white hair hanging down and long feathers at its base to help him stay airborne while flying. His front half is entirely covered in feathers and his back half in fur. The feathers fade out a little past his wings.

A quiet creature who is difficult to get to know well. He typically finds himself alone, though not always by choice. He is the type who gets lonely easily, but isolates himself. He’s a private hippogryph who prefers to observe rather than interact. Kaalaas enjoys thinking about the world and his own existence in unconventional ways and would probably make a great philosopher. He is individualistic…has no interest in leading or following others. Occasionally he will give an off-the-wall comment that is beautiful, but he won’t realize it. Likes esoteric things and is familiar with the dark side. Kaalaas doesn’t think that he’s weird, but others do, so he doesn’t have many friends. Someone giving him a small complement is likely to make him happy all day.
[ rider, companion ]
Kaalaas's best friend. The two of them are empathetically linked with one another, which allows them to communicate telepathically, see through each other's eyes at times, find each other when lost, and feel each other's emotions and physical pain (to an extent). They're very close and often can be found flying around together for fun.
[ frenemy ]
Coriander is very attracted to Kaalaas and he is not interested, to put it briefly. He finds her energy and affections toward him to be rather obnoxious and this results in the two not getting along all the time.
[ friend ]
Kaalaas's friend since childhood. Shiloh is the only one who can get Kaalaas to go hunting and does his best to shield his friend from Coriander when she's being too forward.
