While Minotaurs have a reputation for hanging out in mazes, this is not always the case. While they can be exciting monsters to face, giving Minotaurs a place as humanoids in your D&D world can add extra depth. In the Theros campaign setting, Minotaurs are found in the badlands, highlighting their resilience.

Minotaurs are, normally, large and muscular humanoids with bull faces and horns. Their horns are often used for attacking when needed, however, the horns are also points of pride. Some Minotaurs, especially priests, may choose to etch important iconography into their horns and keep them in a protective sheath during battle.

Many Minotaurs will name their children after great heroes of lore. While these names normally come from Minotaur lore, in special cases they may choose a name from a hero who is not a Minotaur. However, some choose to give their children a unique name, to help them find their own path into fame and glory.
