Description[]

"The swirling seas around the island of Jorvik are teaming with magic and mystery, and from these waters emerge a pearlescent horse known as Tellina.

Whimsical by nature, Tellina prefers to stick to the shallow waters and rocky outcrops of Jorvik's coast, collecting seashells with a mother-of-pearl sheen that matches their glossy coat.

Because of their affinity for shiny things, Tellina has developed a sharp vision and can spot things from great distances, but this means that they are sometimes easily distracted.

Jorvegian seafarers share fascinating tales of magical sea-horses that only appear when in dire need. When a sailing party gets lost on the seas, they claim to see a pearlescent horse appear on the rocks, their presence calming the troubled sailors.

These horses will stand in the direction of the mainland, guiding the disoriented seafarers back home safely. They call these horses the Tellina, after the sunrise tellin shells their coats resemble.

The origin of these magical horses is a mystery, but some whisper of a once lush islet off the coast of South-East Jorvik, where magic horses roamed free. Until one tragic day when the land sunk into the ocean, leaving the horses without a home. They say the Tellina that have stepped ashore on Jorvik are descendants of the horses from this fabled islet.

Like other Magic Horses in Jorvik, Tellina shows its true colors in wild places and will conceal its appearance in populated areas. Whether in its magical form or disguised to blend in with other horses, Tellina rides just like the Akhal Tekes it most resembles".

Unique Features[]

Color Changing[]

The Tellina is a magical horse with the special ability to change colors. When the player presses the "h" key or the magic horse icon on the horse's character sheet, the horse will change from its neutral colors to its natural (magic) colors and vice versa. The horse will not change colors during races or while the player is unmounted.

Trivia[]

  • The Tellina uses the G3 Akhal-Teke model.
  • The Tellina was was released as a pair with Kampos.
  • Despite appearing fish-like, the Tellina cannot swim any deeper in the water than any other horse breed in the game.
  • Tellina and Kampos were the first Magic horses to change the base model of the horse by adding extra parts to it (fins on the head, neck, and shoulder).
  • Tellina, like most other Magic Horses, cannot have its hairstyle changed.
  • The term Tellina describes the genus of marine bivalve molluscs in the the family Tellinidae. [7]
    • The word comes from the New Latin, Greek tellinē, meaning "shellfish."[8] As Tellina is modeled after mother of pearl (AKA Nacre), an organic–inorganic composite material produced by some mollusks as an inner shell layer, this is an appropriate name.[9]
