Uxibeasts were hair-covered mammalian herbivores native to the planet Tython. Roaming open pastures on the mountainous world, the uxibeast's horned body posed a danger to anything caught in its path when agitated.
Large, shaggy herbivores, the uxibeast was large beast easily agitated and very aggressive. Pack animals most comfortable in large herds, the horned animal was no easy prey to the pouncing manka cat or flying wingmaws; the spines along its back could easily puncture the skin of such predators. Domesticating uxibeasts was no easy challenge; the animal might imprint on a single being, forming a strong bond and loyalty with that individual.
