Minotaurs are shaggy-furred humanoids of great size. Reminiscent of a cross between a bull and a human, these horned fighters tend to serve as bodyguards and soldiers. Most of the minotaurs of Eberron call the nation of Droaam home, acting as guards, pit fighters, and mercenaries for the Daughters of Sora Kell. Others are drafted into the service of House Tharashk as mercenaries, and some have even settled down to live in Malleon’s Gate, Sharn.
During the Last War, in the year 987 YK, three hags, known as the Daughters of Sora Kell, announced the creation of a new nation Droaam. This nation, carved from the western half of Breland, would be ruled by the monstrous races. The Daughters opened an invite for any monstrous race to find a new home in Droaam, and a great many minotaurs accepted their offer. Most minotaurs in Droaam reside in isolated wilderness areas, but individuals are frequently seen in the Great Crag and Graywall, delighting the crowds as pit fighters.
In the year 994 YK, House Tharashk began negotiations with Droaam for the use of mercenary solders in the Last War. The Daughters of Sora Kell agreed, and House Tharashk began recruiting monstrous races, including minotaurs, for use as mercenaries. It is not unusual for House Tharashk to employ minotaurs for use as enclave guards or in their pursuit hunting dragonshards.
Minotaurs not aligned to either Droaam or House Tharashk are common as well. Some of these minotaurs have sought work as members of Daask or other criminal organizations. Over in the continent of Xen’drik, a handful of minotaur warlords have erected maze-cities and forged tiny kingdoms over the centuries.
