Islimach was Prince Ellidyr's ill-tempered horse. She was a roan mare, "a lean and nervous steed speckled red and yellow, with a long, narrow head".

The Black Cauldron

Islimach was trained from a foal only to allow Ellidyr to ride her, though Taran managed to calm her while he removed a stone from her hoof that had been causing her pain. After the death of Ellidyr, Islimach went mad and ran off a ravine cliff near the Forest of Idris.

She was buried with honor next to her fallen master.
