||only some are uni- formly the golden color attributed to the ancient breed. Uniquely, all have yellow-colored eyes, hence their common nickname of “goldeneye.”
Like the ancient breed, goldeneyes are among the fastest horses alive. However, their superior performance diminishes if they are ridden by any- one other than a member of the Grazer tribe, which claims kinship with them. Thus, although a man on a new hyal is faster than a man on any other horse (except a jillaran), a Grazer on a goldeneye is faster still. Goldeneyes are intelligent (for horses), and are easily trained to respond to whistles or voice commands.
Goldeneyes bond to their riders through mutual respect. They normally allow only their own riders to mount them, although they can understand commands such as, “Let this man ride you.”
Although anyone can ride a goldeneye, only those who have succeeded at the Goldeneye heroquest (which is known only to the Grazers) can bond with their horse to create a magical partnership. When ridden by its bond- ed rider, a Goldeneye may augment any ability with its Rider Bond ability. Goldeneyes naturally have skills equivalent to Battle Training, and are aggressive in battle.
Goldeneyes are able to see and fight disembodied spirits. They may be taken to the Spirit World and there integrate ancestral horse spirits. They have the attributes Great Leap, Never Lose Rider, Run Extremely Fast, Run up
