Aparece en White Sand

Tonks are beasts of burden on the Dayside of Taldain.[1]

Appearance

Tonks are quadrupedal. Their heads and the front halves of their bodies are similar in size and shape to a mule, while their hindquarters more closely resemble those of a kangaroo.[1] Their bodies are covered in gray carapace, which is segmented and particularly thick along the top of the body.[1] They have long, thick tails, prominent horns coming out of their heads at various angles, and clawed feet that appear to have opposable thumbs.[1]

Usage

Riding tonks have very weak minds. Whenever they get confused they assume it's a sandstorm and bury themselves beneath the ground.

Tonks are domesticated, and they are often used for transportation in the deserts of Dayside.[1] They are weak-minded[2] and easy to lead.[1] When used for riding, they are fitted with a saddle, bridle, and saddlebags.[1] When they are scared or confused, they tend to bury themselves in the sand,[2] although skilled riders such as Aarik may be able to prevent this.[3] Tonks are present in hunting camps in the deep sand, although terha are preferred for hunts.[3]

They are sometimes used by Darksiders that are visiting Dayside, but this may be rare, as Khrissalla and her team do not appear to be very familiar with their behavior.[2]

Taxonomy

Tonks have superficial similarities to both terha and some species of sandlings, with both having horn, water-soluble carapace, and a propensity to bury themselves in sand.[3] It is unknown if there is a relation, natural or bred, between the creatures.

Trivia

  • The name "tonk" is not related to the character Tonk Fah.[4]
