It is necessary, again and again, to remind a tasharn hatchling to be gentle. They grow at an alarming rate, and act like large, formidable kittens at times. When not busy clawing the bark off of trees, they're usually off romping around the lake, taunting the krakens and occassionally falling in. Unlike other felines, the water doesn't seem to bother them, even in the midst of winter. To make their playful natures even more difficult to deal with, these tigers are able to change size at a whim. A person may suddenly be confronted with a hatchling twice the size of them, ready for a game. The other obvious issue is when they shrink. A tasharn hatchling is always on the prowl for prey, and grasshoppers are as good as deer. Then their human companions must drop to all fours and search through the tall grass for their missing hatchling.

Larger than any other feline, tasharns are formidable looking creatures. They reach up to a grown man's shoulder when in their natural state, making them the biggest felines at The Keep. But when they feel the need, these unusual cats can call upon their powers to transform them. Before your eyes the tasharn will change shape, growing either even larger or smaller. This gift allows them to challenge even dragons in size, or perhaps slip under a door. Naturally, this magic is highly prized, and these animals are sought all over the known world. Like almost all rare creatures, they have hidden themselves away and become almost impossible to find. They live where the Arkene meets the edge of The Jungle of Raza, a place most difficult to explore. This is due to the gigantic mountains of ice that cover the terrain. The land is both cold and steep, making traveling on foot treacherous. These creatures are happiest there, though, prowling for prey and making their homes in the freezing caves. Tasharns have thick coats of fur that protect them from the low temperatures, while allowing them to blend in with their surroundings. This enables them to slowly sneak up on a potential meal, surprising the creature before it can act.
