Tuarg are giant bull-like creatures that can be exceptionally irritable and will eat their rider or trample them if not held in check with harsh Canim discipline. They are ridden by Canim warriors and are fearsome in battle; much faster than a horse, bigger than an elephant, and stronger than a rhino.

Tuarg are very susceptible to sea sickness, so they could not be brought to Alera when the Canim, under Nasaug, invaded Alera. The Tuarg were only discovered by the Alerans when Gaius Octavian and his men sailed over to Canea.
