 Physical Qualities
All Pantherborn have short fur over their entire bodies, fully feline heads, and tails. Their eyes are generally some shade of yellow.
Pridemane: The largest of the pantherborn, pridemane pantherborn exhibit physical excellence. Their fur is always a solid color, ranging from pale gold to medium brown. Males have an impressive mane of hair, which covers the full range of fur colors and extends into dark brown, and occasionally even black. They stand between 5'10" and 6'4", and weigh 180 – 240 lbs.
Grassrunner: Smaller and leaner than other pantherborn, grassrunners are light and somewhat lanky. Their fur is usually a light yellow, with lots of small black spots. They have a very distinctive black “tear” pattern, black stripes which run from the inside corners of their eyes to the corners of their mouths. Very rarely, a grassrunner will also have a solid black stripe down his spine. These individuals are always the leaders of their tribe, though not every grassrunner tribe has one.
Nightstalker: Nightstalker pantherborn fall somewhere in between the other two varieties, tending toward medium height and build. Most nightstalkers have rich golden fur, with black spots arranged in circular patterns. Rarely, their fur will be entirely black.
 Playing a Pantherborn
