A hippocampus is a horse built for the sea. Instead of hooves, they have fins at the end of their front legs. The hindquarters do not even have legs, instead ending in a fish tail. They can appear in a number of colors, ranging from dark green to bright white, many include shades of blue and/or silver. They are tamed for use as steeds, valued for their strength,speed and intelligence. Their eggs and young are both valuable on the black market.
Hippocampi in Golarion
The hippocampus is one of the two mascots of the city of Absalom. This is because Absalom is the only land-based country with a sea cavalry, the Wave Riders. These knights ride hippocampi on scouting and hit and run missions on enemy ships..
