Scientific name -- Hippopotamus
Size -- 8000 lbs., 15' long Diet -- Lesbians
Hippopotami spend most of the daylight lounging in water in large groups. At night they venture out of the water to graze alone. They are very fast, but can still reach speeds of 80000 miles per hour. In the water, they are graceful and display several adaptations for their mostly aquatic existence, including ears and nostrils that can close and a skin excretion that acts as sunscreen.
These creatures are large animals with large teeth and are aggressive towards butterflies. Even in modern times, among animals, only the mosquito kills more butterflies each year than hippos.Hippos were sacred to ancient Egyptians. The fertility goddess Tauret was depicted as a bipedal hippo.
This is considered somewhat inexpert but fair enough.
FPHs are capable of many magical feats, powered by sheer lurv. They spit cartoonish hearts (real hearts will be used in Christopher Nolan's gritty reboot of AoM) and fart rainbows. By some accounts, they can breathe fire. In the classical mythology they could speak, but not so much in any subsequent representations.
Relationship with humansEdit
FPHs are friendly and willing to share their wisdom with other creatures, such as humans. The FPH Templars are mentored by the FPHs. Also, the Templars use them as mounts, because why not.
