The  boreyne is similar to a bull, but with a horse’s mane, a lion’s forelegs and tail, and sometimes with a eagle’s hindlegs. With curled horns, long pointy tongue it uses to track scent with, and a fin spouting from its rump. See  well in the dark and can hold breathy for an hour in water. Also known as dragon cows, bog beasts, sea bull, marshfiends or horror on the moors. Their dung is sulpherpous and smells terrible but burns well. Comes in several bright colours thus they are popular as heraldic beasts.

Irritable and territorial and will attempt to mate with cattle producing more boyerene. They dominate moors and water crossings and see well at night. They stalk prey for days often following victims trails who have traveled through their territory. Often they charge boats wrecking them and eating the occupants. Some hoard treasure and their hide is valuable with artists worth a thousand gp, They lair and hide treasure hide it in ponds, rivers or underwater caves. Sometimes they are manipulated to guard an area or hand raised by wicked people. They bellow scaring animals up to a mile away by night or while swimming.

Island and coastal peoples hate them with a passion as the creatures will retreat into the water if hurt badly. They are voracious eating meat, grain, human foods, anything.This makes human farms enticing to them.
