Feline Shifters[edit]

Feline shifters are essentially a very attractive human with cat features. Most of the time a feline shifter displays their ears and tail, depending on the character. Female feline shifters can vary from being very cute to very badass. Most male feline shifters are very masculine, but not always.


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.


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 moreso 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 worship the Goddess Bastet.


Common, Animal Speak.


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