Feline shifters are essentially half human, half feline, so they are unique to themselves, with a side of selfish, cunning, crafty curiosity.

Physical Description[edit]

Some Feline Shifters like to display different traits. Men usually show off their tail, and women their ears, sometimes both. Small Feline Shifters shift into small felines, such as domestic cats etc. Medium Feline Shifters shift into medium cats such as lynx, bobcats, etc. Large Feline Shifters shift into Large cats such as lions, tigers, etc. The longer their human hair is the longer their fur coat is.


Depending on the type of Feline Shifter, where their home land is, and how much their Feline influences them. Small Feline Shifters are friendly with most everyone, Medium usually friendly with most, but more so with races around their home land, large feline shifts aren't very social, so they're only civil with races in their home land.


Feline shifters can be any alignment, but are usually chaotic due to their crafty and selfish nature.


Feline Shifters home lands are where their wild counterparts are naturally found.

Feline Shifters are named the same way human are, unless their parents gave the pet's names.
