Dawngrazers are average-sized, big-horned ungulates that roam grassland regions of Nexus in small family herds. They are a common source of food for the planet's predatory species, from the Falkrin to the dagun to the newly arrived Cassians. Dawngrazer meat is remarkably similar to the endangered Cassian deer, a beloved delicacy for Dominion citizens that is almost impossible to find anywhere but Cassus - and even then, only at the wealthiest dining tables.
Sungrazers are a subspecies of dawngrazers that are both herbivores and photovores. This means they have the ability to feed not only on plants, but also on sunlight itself, using their oversized golden horns as natural solar panels that metabolize light energy. Direct metabolization of light creates a harmless glow that trails behind sungrazers in a glittering wake.
