Tauren are large bovine creatures of nomadic nature who lived mostly on open plains until they made permanent settlements like the ones in Mulgore. They are honorable and stoic individuals who are keen on shamanism, hunting, and fighting.

They appear almost brooding to strangers, but open up to those who they befriend. Their history relies on an oral exchange between the generations. Living in clans, they tend to unite quickly, especially when a common outside threat emerges.

Tauren society is inspired by Native American societies, where individual identity is something to be proud of, and as such their names carry meanings and messages. Some good examples are Gakil Lonesong, Tako Blackshield, and Zato Farmane.
