Almiraj (pronounced: /ælmɪˈrɑːæl-mi-RAJ[5] about this audio file listen or: /ˈɔːlmɪərɑːAWL-meer-ahj[1], alternate plural: almirajes[2]), also known as al-mi'raj[2][4], were a variety of fey[2] rabbits with an spiral horn emerging from their foreheads.[1]

Almiraj were quite common in the Feywild, considered a garden-variety animal.[2] 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.[1]

Description[edit | edit source]

Almiraj resembled large rabbits with a 1-foot-long spiraled horn, usually black in color,[4] in their foreheads, like unicorns.[1]

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Almiraj were usually timid creatures,[1] considered stupid and unpredictable by some. However, almiraj were also fearless.[4] They were easy to pet and tame, and incredibly faithful to their masters,[2][4] and spellcasters often sought them to make them their familiars.[1]

Combat[edit | edit source]

When forced to fight, they could be quite dangerous, ramming against their enemies, stabbing them with their horns.[1] Almiraj were intelligent enough to fight using simple tactics, such as burrowing to move unnoticed and attack an enemy by surprise.[2]

Notable almirajes[edit | edit source]

I'jin, one of the Nine Trickster Gods of Chult, took the form of an almiraj.[6]
