The goleks are an insular-gigantic branch of the ancient Lagom clade, which share a distant common ancestor with nuralagus. It is theorized that during Early Cataclysms, the Greater Kremellian Subcontinent (GKS) was fractured into multiple disparate tectonic regions. One of which later became the Deveran-Edebian Shield Ridge, but during this geologic period many successive isolated generations reproduced without natural predators on these islands, growing to large physiological proportions. This upward formological evolution continued up and until the time of the Collision of the Isle of Edeb, which reconnected the Shield Ridge with the central part of the GKS. (See: Sable goleks)
During this time of separation, among the golek branch of the Lagom tree, the Common Language fell out of use, as there is a natural tendency toward telepathic communications within this biomorph. And they developed their own language of slight small noises, whuffs, and huffs, and chitterings.
By the time the golek branches reconnected with the Greater Kremellian Subcontinent which birthed them, the Lagom culture had long gone dark, though certain of their artifacts–such as an immense system of subterranean tunnels–would remain intact. The dominant mammal during this time would be man, and goleks had lost all fear of predation.
Due to their immense size, strong backs, gentle nature, and swiftness in need, goleks were a natural addition to the domestication regimes of Proto-Kremellian as both pack animals, familiars and companions, and battle steeds. Slow to anger, but quick to risk all to protect their raisla, there are many great songs, chansons, gestes, and poemes of the brave deeds of the loyal and steadfast goleks.
Notable goleks include:
