Enlightened animals

Enlightened animals are simply regular animals given the intellect of their anthropomorphic cousins. The first enlightened animals were found shortly after magic research took off, the massive influx of magic gifted the surrounding areas with enhanced intelligence, bringing about both the Enlightened Animals and the Planterra at the same time (see below). Facing initial issues in gaining respect with their fellow sapient creatures, they eventually gained recognition and were taught to speak Common. Despite not being able to complete many tasks that creatures with hands could, enlightened animals still fit into society, usually tasked with carrying heavy loads around.
