Resembling a hybrid between an ox and an antelope, immensely strong and a surprisingly fleet runner, the cartazon is notable for its tawny coat and thick mane, its three-hooved feet and its stubby tail. On its forehead rises a long, curved and wickedly sharp black horn, ringed towards its base like that of a wild goat or ibex.

Though peaceful amongst other animals, the cartazon will abide the presence of its own kind only to breed and raise young; and it will not suffer the attention of humans. No adult cartazon has been known to have been taken alive, instead fighting to the death with horn and hooves. A magical weapon is required to harm a cartazon.

A cartazon may carry 4500cn at normal speed, and 9000cn at half-speed.
