 +A list of **animals** that have appeared in the comic so far. 
  
 +There'​s a lot of overlap with the real world (see the end of the page), but other creatures don't have a real-world counterpart,​ or put a fantastical twist on them. 
 +
 +Animal [[magic#​soulbonding]] with humans is a treatment for certain kinds of intense trauma.
 +
 +=====Dragons=====
 +<​html><​a href="​http://​leifandthorn.com/​comic/​saturday-sketchbook-feathered-dragon/"><​img src="​https://​leifandthorn.com/​wiki/​images/​15-11-21-castle-dragon.png"​ alt="​The Wyrm of Ruraidh and Thorn" class="​alignleft"></​a></​html>​
 +Not quite a distinct species, but what happens when Bad Magical Things happen to raptors. Lots of feathers. ​

 +<​html><​a href="​http://​leifandthorn.com/​comic/​fish-story-1141/"><​img src="​https://​leifandthorn.com/​wiki/​images/​16-6-6-ponyfish.png"​ alt="A ponyfish in an aquarium"​ class="​alignleft"></​a></​html>​
 +Ponyfish, like the [[wp>​hippocamp|hippocampus]],​ look like a cross between a horse and a fish. The front half has an equine head, a mane, and hooved legs; the back half has a fin along the spine, and a large fish tail. Covered in scales, and can grow to [[http://​leifandthorn.com/​comic/​night-out-921/​|the size of a large sea bass]]. ​

 +
 +=====Unicorn=====
 +<​html><​a href="​http://​leifandthorn.com/​comic/​an-incredibly-platonic-storyline-1564/"><​img src="​https://​leifandthorn.com/​wiki/​images/​16-8-3-unicorns.png"​ alt="​Caoimhe and her foal" class="​alignleft"></​a></​html>​

 +A monstrous canine that lives in the snowy wilds of Sønheim. It's said that once it's tasted something'​s blood, it won't rest until it's killed it.
