About

This steed shimmers with the light of the divine. Its golden eyes measure you with intelligence.

These animals are similar to heavy horses but are trained and bred for strength and aggression. They roam Olympus and are used as mounts by the gods or to pull their chariots. Lucky heroes may be gifted with one by a deity who favors them. Divine horses have tremendous affection for their owners and are known to mourn if harm comes to their master. They are immortal, which means that their mourning is sadly inevitable.

Blessed by the Gods. Divine horses are one of the most common creatures affiliated with the gods. They can be associated with Hera, Zeus, Poseidon, or Ares.
