[Why have a mule?[/u]
If you read the paragraph above, mules are very useful for all aspects of Gaia and it's many features. You don't need a mule if you really do not want one, but they are handy if you do wish to have one on the side! Sure mules may seem useless at first,once you start into the world of Gaia you may think of having another character. Mules are great for many of things of Gaia and they are great for choosing a different sex then you have as you're main character.

I hope this helped you out in finding out the world of Gaia.
