A large, ferocious lion with nearly impenetrable skin. Cithaeronian lions are thought to be divine in origin, and may be descended from or related to the legendary nemean lion. They are feared not only for their ravenous hunger and brute strength, but the merciless manner in which they attack any travelers who enter their territory. Otherwise, however, they are very similar to normal lions, and may even be found living alongside them as the leader of the pride.
