Playful as any kitten, winged cats are extremely difficult to keep an eye on. Their white wings, oversized for their small bodies, are already useful in flight. You never know when a small, furry object will hurl itself at your head. Walking down the well worn path to the lake, you see a group of students laughing; a mischievous little black kitten has decided to attack a gryphon, batting its head and hovering just out of reach. The gryphon adult is taking this with good humor, avoiding the attacks patiently until you've caught the naughty feline.
As graceful in flight as when walking, winged cats are stately beings, full of self-importance and pride. They are the favorite pets of the high ladies of Synara, free to roam where they will and treated with the utmost respect. The felines of Etain are their distant cousins, and they spend much of their time together, watching the kittens at play and hunting for small game. Winged cats are often seen on the roof of The Keep, sunning themselves sleepily, motionless except for a twitch of their tails now and then.
