Besnik is Arsalan’s warhorse from the Islands. He is dappled grey, lightest at his back and getting darker to a coal color near his hooves with a black mane and tail. He has awareness and alert
Besnick was trained and raised with Arsalan from birth, and has been with him his whole life, resulting in a very deep connection and understanding of one another. Because he was raised in the islands, Besnik can whether the coldest temperatures and is a strong swimmer, but is not accustomed to this desert heat (not to mentions Niff’s annoying monkey). He is glad to be near the sea again.
