Description: Fathiers, also known as "space horses," were a species of non-sentient quadrupeds that resided in the galaxy. They were often used as mounts, and wealthy inhabitants of Kergans and Cantonica rode them in competition.

A non-sentient quadruped species, fathiers were distinguished by their long legs, brown fur, and large ears. Fathiers were capable of running at great speeds across various terrains, including beaches, fields, and cliff faces. Their speed made them sought after by wealthy residents of the galaxy, and the creatures were viewed as graceful and majestic. People that saw fathiers in person for the first time were often shocked by their size. When cooped up, fathiers required endurance exercises, so fathier transports were equipped with double-gravity chambers.

Fathiers were able to be domesticated, and they were used as mounts in competition. The inhabitants of the planet Cantonica exploited them in highly popular races on the Canto Bight racetracks, in which the animals suffered abuse.

During the Galactic Civil War, the Alliance to Restore the Republic used fathiers ridden by Tognath mercenaries in hit-and-run combat missions.

In 34 ABY, Resistance operatives Finn and Rose Tico traveled to Cantonica in search of a Master Codebreaker. During their search, the two ran into trouble with the Canto Bight Police Department, and they hid in the fathier stables at the Canto Bight racetrack. With the help of stable boy Temiri Blagg, Finn and Tico let the fathiers loose, riding a fathier to escape the police force.

At some point in his life, the Corellian Geb Teldar mucked the stall of a fathier for a living. Lorica Demaris, a Zeltron from the planet Kergans, learned how to ride fathiers in competition, which she hated.

I know a lot of people disliked the stuff in Canto Bight, and yeah, there's some grounds for that.......but part of me liked the idea of a "space horse", bigger, tougher and more nimble than am Earth horse, that can tear up the streets of a city and wreck entire vehicles when it passes through. Kinda made me wonder if there was a body count after they got loose.

Also, I should say thanks. I forgot all about how creature stats were done in the D6 system. Most of the games/campaigns I took part in, the things we fought were usually people and starships. I can't remember using creatures that often. Makes me a little sad now that I think of that, because there's a lot of good ones to use.
