Irelsa is hot-blooded even for a sand steed and tends to get irritated if she isn’t given something to do for prolonged period. Her large reserves of high-strung energy means she tends to “startle” at unexpected noises, sights, or smells, but she is quite comfortable in the midst of a battle among the spilled blood of humans, dogs, and other horses.
Sand steeds have a not entirely deserved reputation for being temperamental; Irelsa becomes depressed if she feels she has been mistreated or if given too many confusing commands. Even if she doesn’t fully understand what her rider wants, she will earnestly try to fulfill his orders anyway. She gets eager and impatient before combat, jousts, and bullfights, snorting and pawing at the ground.
