They have a very similar appearance to Kelbi and Anteka. Unlike them, though, Erupe have primarily white fur with dark brown on their backs. They are generally small monsters, and have large, dark brown, curled horns atop their heads.
Erupe so far have only been spotted in the Highland — most commonly in the lower altitude regions and cliff sides.
Erupe are peaceful herbivores, even more so than their relatives Kelbi. They are also very curious in behavior, going as far as flocking around potential threats like hunters. In some cases where hunters perform gestures such as siting or sleeping when surrounded by Erupe, the Erupe will follow by laying down and sleeping besides the hunters. If threatened in any way by predators, hunters or the unstable weather of the highlands, Erupe will evacuate the area immediately.
