Appearance: The six-legged antelope is a small herbivore, similar to several variety of steppe antelope and reindeer that live on Novgorod Tribunal’s Great Steppe. Unlike mundane antelopes, the six-legged antelope has an additional pair of hind legs.The six-legged antelope likes to affix a prospective hunter with its The Hunter’s Lust power, then draw the hunter after it as it runs deep into the Siberian steppe. The faerie can run all day without tiring, which most hunters cannot manage. It plays with its pursuer, slowing down as he tires then continuing to retreat when he regains his breath. The faerie is not malicious and feeds on the hunter’s desire rather than his death. Unfortunately, the faerie is not that smart and does not realize that most hunter’s die in the pursuit.
If caught, the faerie tries to quell the hunter’s passion with its Compassion of the Hunter power. This is not always successful. A six-legged antelope can be found in the southern Novgorod, northern Thebes, and eastern Transylvania Tribunals.
