B&W is NOT missing that. It's designed to be heavily modded, both in
terms of being able to create your own maps as well as creating your
own creatures to use in place of the animals that come with the game.

Molyneux has said in an interview that he's not looking forward to the
point when somebody creates a "person" animal, considering the fact
that the way you train your pet is by stroking or slapping. He
originally started with a person-like creature (male), but everyone
found him too disturbing, and they removed him.

You can put him back in.
