Almiraj (pronounced: /ælmɪˈrɑːdʒ/ æl-mi-RAJ listen or: /ˈɔːlmɪərɑːdʒ/ AWL-meer-ahj, alternate plural: almirajes), also known as al-mi'raj, were a variety of fey rabbits with an spiral horn emerging from their foreheads.
Almiraj were quite common in the Feywild, considered a garden-variety animal. In Toril, they were common in Zakhara. When merchants from that land began to trade with Chult, they brought with them the almirajes to the Chultan Peninsula.
Description[edit | edit source]
Behavior[edit | edit source]
Almiraj were usually timid creatures, considered stupid and unpredictable by some. However, almiraj were also fearless. They were easy to pet and tame, and incredibly faithful to their masters, and spellcasters often sought them to make them their familiars.
Combat[edit | edit source]
When forced to fight, they could be quite dangerous, ramming against their enemies, stabbing them with their horns. Almiraj were intelligent enough to fight using simple tactics, such as burrowing to move unnoticed and attack an enemy by surprise.
