This bipedal tortoise stands a full six or seven hands tall, if not for it’s slouching posture. It’s walk is ponderous, heavy and rolling, but sure-footed. A hard-shell with soft underbelly cover the creature’s thick, leathery reptilian skin. The dark brown pools of its eyes are a mixture of sad thoughtfulness and deep experience, it has seen great hardship.
