Golek

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

Notable goleks include:

Leptom

Leptoms are a distinct evolutionary branch of golek-like mammals endemic to the Isle of Edeb. Though they undoubtedly share a common ancestor in deep pre-history with Lagoms, their evolutionary path was isolated from the more broadly settled goleks, who also split off from that biomorph. Leptoms, generally speaking, are telepathic mindspeakers to varying degrees. They are also generally sable or black in color, and seem to be able to interbreed successfully with their more domesticated golek cousins. For this reason, the term Sable goleks is generally used in modern contexts.

Notable Leptoms

Archef was a famous Leptom chief whose people aided the Muses and the Order of the Tempest during the Fall of Hard Hammer (Elgorra), which resulted in the breaking of the Stem of Edeb, the inversion and wandering of that island, resulting finally in collision with the Greater Kremellian Subcontinent. Following this collision, and the inter-linking of Edeb with the mainland, leptoms intermarried with goleks, and thus the term Leptom is used most often to refer to pre-contact era biomorphs from Edeb.

Machef, the sable golek, is the great grand-son of Archef.
