||Humans call the jerendal ‘shell deer’ because of the segmented armor (like barding) that encases their backs and flanks. They are large, solidly built deer a little smaller than elk. They have brown fur, with black markings on their faces; their armor is a burnished, golden brown marked with paler splotches. They were an important food source for the miserable humans of Saird and Peloria that survived the terror of the Darkness. They are sacred creatures now, never hunted by humans.
Male jerendal have antlers, like all deer, but theirs vibrate and ring when- ever Chaos comes near. People occasionally find the antlers, but jerendal never shed their antlers, so such finds are rare.
Small herds survived thanks to their armor, great speed, and a diet tailored to the era, which let them eat fungi. They are rare now due to the scarcity of their preferred food since the Dawn. - Anaxial Roster
Their antlers will start to vibrate when anything with Chaos Aura or Chaos Feature draws nearby. The ability stays for months after antlers are cut away.
