- Let's start with his namesake; Bloodhoof has hooves. Not all minotaurs do, so this is a good thing.
- He wields an axe. Just about every minotaur does, so this is not as good a thing.
- He wears a spiked arm sleeve, which seems to have a lot to do with dungeonpunk (aren't we past that now?).
- Bloodhoof also has a nose ring, because...that's what minotaurs and hipsters do, right?
All of this is bog-standard minotaur stuff. But really the biggest issue for Bloodhoof is that as a minotaur, he feels a little slight.
His horns aren't oversized and he doesn't have the straining muscles of a He-Man action figure which is standard for minotaurs these days (I blame Warhammer). Unfortunately for Bloodhoof, this makes him more fighter than barbarian.
