Gdi was inspired by European Mouflon, the smallest subspecies of mouflon.  Originally they were discovered only on Corsica and Sardinia. It remains unclear as to whether they evolved there, or survived there while going extinct everywhere else. European mouflons have a complex and wide system of vocalizations, and are also known for sharp eyesight.  They are classified as vulnerable species, and attempts have been made to genetically manage their conservation using reproductive biotechnologies.
