Mist Stalker #127

General

Legend says that if you can see a mist stalker, it is already too late for you. These jungle cats are masters of stealth, traveling through both heavy brush and vine-laden treetops with ease. Their greenish-gray coats and dark spots blend perfectly with their habitat, making them difficult to spot even when moving. But their greatest skill is the ability to dissolve into mist at will, allowing them to approach prey or escape danger undetected. While they cannot maintain the mist form for long, it guarantees they always have the upper hand. These large cats are one of the most dangerous creatures in the forest, and have a long-standing rivalry with telvian panthers. The two battle for territory almost constantly, neither ever gaining the upper hand for long. It is best to journey into the jungle with a mist stalker as companion, lest you never make it out again.

Egg

A mist surrounds this egg, making it difficult to see.

Hatchling

Things have been lively since this cub broke shell. No matter how tightly a place is locked, this little one always finds a way in (much to the dismay of the Keep's kitchen staff). Anything that moves is fair game for pouncing, and you're almost used to having your feet attacked by now. When startled, this cub instantly vanishes into mist that drifts behind you, where the cub feels safe enough to reform. Sometimes a whole pack of these little ones can be seen around The Keep, disappearing and reappearing while they play some game you only half understand.

Adult

It's hard to believe your scampering cub has grown into the majestic beast beside you now. Fully grown, the mist stalker is as big as a tiger and even more powerful. Fortunately, it is also very friendly and complacent, having been raised among people and other magical creatures. You're pretty sure you wouldn't want to meet one in the jungle, though. Even tamed, your companion still plays at stalking you from time to time, and a wild mist stalker wouldn't be playing. Its gentle nature all but disappears in the wild, though, and these large cats love to hunt in the woods. This is well enough, for you could never manage to find enough food to feed these animals. Mist stalkers are meat eaters, and enjoy padding through forests in search of their next meal.
