Docile (Ex) Unless it is a mericorn, a hippocampus’s hooves are treated as secondary attacks.

This hippocampus is about 12 feet long. The statistics above are for a reef horse, called by some a “light reef horse.” Some reef horses are larger and heartier, bred for labor such as pulling sea carriages and ships. These hippocampi are called “heavy reef horses” and gain adjustments to the base statistics detailed above. Mericorns are bred specifically for combat and have more elaborate fins as well as a sharp horn protruding from the center of their skull. Reef horses are too timid to be trained for combat.

Heavy Reef Horse: A heavy reef horse gains the advanced simple template.

Mericorns: A mericorn gains a gore attack that inflicts 1d4 damage, and their hoof damage increases to 1d6. There are light and heavy categories of mericorns as well.
