Even thousands of years before Santhros ascended
to the throne and united the lands of Santharia, the long-ear
hopped happily on the grass of northern Ráhaz-Dáth.
But how could an adorable, little creature of such cheerful temperament outlive

Ráhaz-Dáth. Its fur was softer than any other of the beasts around, and the

Jeyriall, who had created them. But they had no more intelligence like any of
the other beasts around. And so they were hunted - not only by the canny ju‘bat
and other predators, but also by the aguia of the mountains. But Jeyriall loved
her creation so much, that she didn‘t want to allow it vanish from Caelereth. So
she asked Arvins, God of the Hunt, if he couldn‘t do anything about it. The
hunting had to stop, otherwise there would be no more Long-Ears soon. But Arvins
only raised his eyebrows, and Jeyriall knew, that he wouldn‘t do anything.
Jeyriall asked Baveras for help, and the watergoddess created some springs and
wells, so that part of the Northern desert could carry trees and some bushes
with fruits. And so the Long-Ear changed from the Tibbar roaming the vast plains
to the Tree Tibbar, his numbers increased again and for now its extinction
