While minotaurs come in various shapes and sizes, all minotaurs have commonly shared physical features.
Minotaurs are a bovine anthropomorphic race, often mistaken for Vastaya or God-Warriors. They are massive, muscular, and have horns. Minotaur horns come in various shapes and sizes, some individuals even have horns with multiple points. Their entire bodies are covered in hair, which can come in various colors; we know of brown, cyan, and purple minotaurs.

Like other bovines, they have digitigrade legs with hooves instead of human-like legs and feet. Minotaurs have eyes that appear to glow red, though some may not have this.

Powerful enough to shake the ground they stomp on, minotaurs are an imposing race often sought after as reckoners, warriors, and soldiers. They use their horns as additional weapons, though they are not able to grow back after being damaged or sliced off.
