The gak is a big, ugly beast with a heavy striped brown pelt. A marked odor of dung and musty wool surround her in a noxious cloud. The gak chomps vicious-looking teeth, a mix of distrust and hatred in her large doe-like eyes. A pair of sharp horns curves up above her short, broad head in a shape that resembles a lyre. The animal looks ungainly with her tall shoulders and shorter hindquarters, which give her a jerky, uneven gait.
