Minotaurs live on the isles of Mithas and Kothas, on the northeastern shores of the Blood Sea of Istar. Minotaurs live to be about 150 years old. They are intensely proud creatures, growing to be 7 feet tall, with horns of up to 24" long. Minotaur are half-human and half cow—bovine is just about the worst insult anyone can hurl at a minotaur (it's one of the kender's favorite).
The goals of their race are simple: the destruction of all the other races of Krynn. They are exceptionally bigoted, seeing all other races as lesser beings. The only other creatures most minotaur hold in a high regard are the Knights of Solamnia, renowned for their code of honor; this is their one saving grace, in the minotaur's eyes.
As far as weapons and armor go, a minotaur doesn't really need any. His thick hide protects him from some attacks, and his horns and limbs are deadly. Most warriors carry either a two-handed sword (used in one hand) or other slashing weapons.
