"Lunar cycles on Jorvik are an enigma, but on the special occasion that a new moon brings darkness to the land, the inky unlit night lures out a graceful horse known as Umbra.
Preferring to stick to the shadows of thick forest, Umbra finds its home in the thicket, favoring the faint glow of firefly light to guide their way through the woodland.
Due to its fiery mane, Umbra has a body temperature much higher than other horses and is always eager to break into a gallop, racing after the stars in the night sky.
Jorvegian legend claims that a brooding magical horse used to skulk around the far side of the moon until, one day, the fires of Garnok's Fury caught its curiosity. The mythical horse fell from the moon into the bubbling volcano, setting its mane ablaze. It is said that the Umbra that wander Jorvik are descendants of this mythical creature and that to this day they gaze longingly at the moon they can never return to.
Like other Magic Horses in Jorvik, Umbra shows its true colors in wild places and will conceal its appearance in populated areas. Wether in its magical form or disguised to blend in with other horses, Umbra rides just like the Andalusians it shares ancestry with."
The Umbra 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.
The Spanish Walk
As the Umbra shares its model with the Gen 3 Andalusians, it can perform their special move called the Spanish Walk. The animation can be activated by pressing the spacebar, but only when standing still, otherwise the horse will jump instead of performing the move.
