TESNC: Nix-Ox Creatures

The nix-ox was a great insect native to Vvardenfell, and was tamed by the Erabenimsun Tribe of Ashlanders, who also trained these beasts to serve as their war-mounts since the days of their legendary Ashkan, Ashu-Ammu, who first rode one into battle. It was adopted by House Dres in the Second Era to help tend to the plantation fields as replacements for their freed Argonian slaves, but that development drove the nix-ox to extinction due to the unsustainable way the House farmers treated their stocks.

The account of Bakozog Gro-Shahk, "Dark Elves, Dark Hearts", is undeniably prejudiced, but does reveal the primitive and wasteful way most plantation farmers handled the Nix-Oxen in their possession. The account of drenlyns turning the nix-rima into "husks" is obviously misunderstanding the purpose of the alteration procedure and way in which it affects the insects. For accurate information on the subject of drenlyns and their discipline, the Essayists' Guild would recommend Naphestra Conventius' "Compendium de Operum et Laborum", Volume 5, which goes in-depth on (among other subjects) the use of nerve skewers and motor hooks in insects' drive chambers.
