A/N: WHOOOOOOA. I ACTUALLY WROTE SOMETHING AGAIN.
Elsa was a little shit when she was a kid, like, the kind of “little shit” most people hate, including myself. She’s also the youngest child, so she got some… privileges that her brother didn’t. So, she comes off as whiny and spoiled sometimes. But, she’s a good kid.
She kind of straightens out when she’s older, but then she just gets argumentative when people’s beliefs/thoughts/opinions clash with her own. She has redeeming qualities, though. No doubt.
The Gilhespy Plain Ox is heavily influenced by the Musk Ox. In fact, Bobo looks exactly like a typical Musk Ox. I think from the ground to their withers (or whatever that big bone is called), they’re about 6’5-6’8 and some get even bigger, so they’re MASSIVE animals.
At the same time, they’re super benevolent and very calm animals. They get spooked, but it takes something to really get them riled up. Running is difficult for them not only because of their weight and height, but because their hair (even in the summer) is so thick. So, they come off as lackadaisical more often than not.
If you’re looking for speed, they’re not right for you. But they are incredibly reliable pack animals that can carry huge wagons (in this case, what the Tutor has is pretty small) and additionally they can walk for days without rest. Although, they do require long periods of time to graze and drink, otherwise they won’t be able to continue.
They can become very attached to humans who own them, so they’re faithful and don’t often stray when they’re left somewhere. In that same vein, chances are, if you leave a Gilhespy Ox somewhere, it’s not going to move at all. They’re the kind of grazing animal that will focus purely on one spot until ALL of the grass/herbs/roots/weeds are gone, leaving chunks of dirt and just really ugly bald patches.
So, a lot of farmers who live near where Gilhespy Plain Ox’s are native find them a nuisance since they’ll break in all nonchalant-like and eat everything until, literally, there is nothing left.
They can easily outlive humans by at least 150 years; so some can get up to be able 250 and not really show their old age until they’re around 230 or so. The bad thing is, there’s really not a lot of ways to distinguish age. Where IRL you can tell by teeth, this isn’t the case with Gilhespy Oxes, you kind of just have to take a leap of faith.
