Hares are a species of animal that live in the Mouse Territories.
Appearance and CharacteristicsEdit
- In the summer, hares' coats are dark brown. However, in the winter they molt and their fur turns a brilliant white with black-tipped ears. They are sapient and peaceful, but they don't wear much in terms of clothing or use tools or weapons.
- From time to time, hares and mice join allegiances. The hares allow the mice to use them as mounts and are paid for their services in food or manufactured goods.
- Not all mice understand hares. These creatures speak softly and with few words. In fact, many mice fail to notice hares speaking at all. Those that take the time to learn about them, find hares to be spartan, stoic, and reserved. There are a few guardsmice who have been trained to work with the hares. They have fashioned tack and harness to fit the bodies of the hares for riding or towing. It is not easy to ride hares. Unless trained in how to address them, most mice will have no luck getting hares to listen to them, let alone ride them.
