There are at least two types of mordicant; a minotaur-like beast standing 10 to 12 feet tall, and a bull-like mordicant standing 15 feet at the shoulder. Both types of mordicant appear to be made of stone and metal, though they move with the fluidity of a living creature. Their eyes glow like embers, and they breathe ashes. Their blood is highly acidic.
Mordicants are now known to be construct soldiers. A great number were destroyed during or immediately after the Necromancer War; there are currently no known Mordicants still active.
