Essence of Litsdnats
(Stage Frozen)
The name "giraffe" has its earliest known origins in the Arabic word zarafa perhaps from some African language.The name is translated as "fast-walker". There were several Middle English spellings, such as jarraf, ziraph, and gerfauntz.The word possibly was derived from the animal's Somali name geri. The Italian form giraffa arose in the 1590s. The modern English form developed around 1600 from the French girafe. The species name camelopardalis is from Latin.

About the Effa Creature

Effa are the primary form of transport in the Northern Plains. They are very popular in Leila and are frequently traded and bartered (used as commerce) for other types of items and creatures. Effa are used because of their ability to withstand extreme heat and travel long distances. The average Effa will live for over 100 years.
