Introduction

A highly invasive apex predator. They are bought as pets, but often escape and take over the local ecosystem. They move through difficult terrain like the wind, and are drawn to the scent of blood from miles away.

Inspiration

A dangerous beast to lurk in the woods and encourage players to be on the lookout.

Settings

Any wild terrain in fantasy or sci-fi. In a modern setting this could represent a tiger.

Character Build

Basic Information

Visual Description

Dappled gray fur, small and pointed ears, large eyes, teeth and claws.

Size

10 feet long head to tail, 5 feet wide.

Movement

At home on the ground as in the trees or cliffs. They can leap across enormous gaps.

Character Background

Goals, Beliefs, Instincts, Motivations

Instincts

They will shadow prey for some time, then strike by leaping from above. They sometimes hunt in packs, but don't use clever tactics; just a rushing assault.

Motivations

Food and dominance.

Feats

Lethal Strike II

This is primarily for the initial attack from hiding, as cat beasts will rarely flank.

Skill Specialisation III (Agility)

Cat beasts are stealthy and quick. This is additive to the advantage from Great Leap.

Compatibility

Used in Project Sunbird
