Canthra, Harritt`Catur (Jungle Panther):

     This creature appears as a cross between a panther and a humanoid.
     Semi-solitaire. They mingle with their own tribes, coming and going as they please, or come when beckoned by their shaman and mystic tribal leaders.
     The common people of the Harritt`Catur are extremely supersticious; they fear and rever the Giant Panther, believing it an omen of fortune should one cross his or her path. They also believe that Shamans, who are high apprentices of the Mystic that leads their tribe, are possessed by supernatural powers given them by the spirits unseen. And foremost the Mystic is to be honored and revered in all walks of life; they are most loyal to the Mystic above all else (even unto death).
