The eshu are a race of winged minotaurs. They are much smaller than other  minotaurs. They stand only 6'-8' tall. They are hunters and farmers and  generally live simple lives. Although they have wings and are powerful flyers  they are mostly land dwellers.

Their religion teaches that they were created as  servents and heralds of Sarenrae and that "true" minotaurs are actually the  decendents of eshu that were cursed for betraying their creator. Their original  civilization was destroyed but they were able to rebuild their culture elsewhere  with the aid of the ee'aar. The eshu now live along with, but seperate from the  ee'aar aiding them in their war with ogres that infest the mountains that the  eshu and the ee'aar share.
