Minotaurs inhabit Fablehaven and is home to approximately two dozen of them. Part man, part bull, these beasts stand a head taller than most men and come in various shades of fur, from chestnut brown to black. They have wide horns, a bulky musculature, and reek like livestock. The minotaur has an acute sense of smell. It is extremely strong and prefers heavy weapons such as the mace and battle-axes. These hefty weapons can slow down a minotaur, giving quick opponents and advantage.
In Dragonwatch, we get introduced to three new minotaurs at Blackwell Keep at Wyrmroost; Brunwin, Romnus, and Tonak (who is a traitor). Brunwin helps Seth fulfill his plan to get Knox to get the scepter from Henrick in the Road House.
Minotaurs may be related to the taurans.
