Grantin Leopard

General

The Grantin Leopard is a beast native to Old Reminiscence, though it has so far migrated to a few Miand'Més Alterations, along with the Concordian Valley. How this occured, however, is so far a mystery.

Adaptable

The Grantin Leopard is a surprisingly adaptable beast, though it does prefer the colder climates, no matter how many generations have passed. This adaptability is likely due to it being from such a enigmatic place as Old Reminiscence.

Magical Effects

Similar to other beats in Old Reminiscence, the Grantin Leopard is capable of producing elemental magical effects. Though, this is only seen in three out of ten specimens.
The most common elemental magical effect they can produce is that of ice and snow, eerily similar to Skadifjorer magic. There have also been documented cases of fire leopards and those who simply use light illusions.
