Special Traits


This black-furred panther would not seem noteworthy were it not for its exceptional size and six legs, one of which has a twisted and mangled paw from some past hunter’s trap. The beast seems to bear a perpetual snarl as one side of its face is badly scarred, pulling its mouth up and its eye into a puckered squint.
