Vantage Catamount

The Vantage Catamount (chimera echidnaoapsrion vantagi) is a subspecies of monstrosities spawned by the ancient greek immortal, Echidna. While many of her offspring gained noteriaty in the mediterranian region of the old world, over the millenium her genetic legacy has spread accross the Ring of Fire and Dragons1. Here in the eastern foothills of the Ryopytavs, the catamount is one such unnatural chimera become indiginious.

 

A typical tripartate chimera, the Vantage Catamount has the head, forelegs and body of a cougar, the head and wings of a lesser wyvern, finishing with the tail and quills of a porcupine.

 

In addition to its' physical form, each creature in this chimeric combination contribute behavioural traits. The cougar brings stealth and patience in hunting. The wyvern's violent temperment and tenacious cunning makes it a terrifying foe. The porcupine contributes considerable defense instincts, making this creature almost impossible to surprise.

    1. Whether the catamount is a result of natural species evolution linked back to Echidna, or a creation of the Red Emiror's demonic allies is a question of heated debate among academics. Well, those that have managed to remain uneaten, anyway.
