The Hokfig is a very large herd animal, generally two to three times taller than a human at the highest point. They have six limbs and four eyes. It's theorized that one set of eyes sees from the ultraviolet spectrum, while the second set of eyes sees up into the infrared, allowing them to spot predators far in advance. They are not a very fast creature but they are extremely tough to kill. A hornlike plate covers its back as defense from airborne predators.

Often hunted for their meat, it is considered a mark of skill to kill one without being damaged in the hunt. They are generally peaceful unless attacked, but their six hooves are more dangerous than their bite.
