The story of the tapir and how she got her wings is told in the comic, Tapiridae Dreams.
Tile holds the trunk of the horned elephant, her staff laying on the ground.
Caption: Tile likes this elephant.
Tile stands surprised, no longer wearing the cape.
Caption: But then it ate her cape.
Tile walks away from the elephant whose face is now in the shape of a mushroom, with the trunk as the stalk.
Caption: So Tile named it Mushroom.
Tile sits on the back of the tapir, which now has four triangular wings, and they rise into the air.
Caption: And rode the flying tapir.
