Sub-Species

Common Stei

The common stei has the widest range of colouration and patterns in it's fur, ranging through all shades of browns, greys and oranges, sometimes in mottled, spotted, brindled or patches of contrasting colours. :They are generally smaller than the more specialized species, and sometimes domesticated as hunting companions and guards by some Treahni people.

Desert Stei

Reddish through golden colours brace the fur of this species. They dwell in underground dens and emerge during the cool evening to hunt by the light of the moon.

Great Jungle Stei

Largest and most feared of the stei species, the Great Jungle Stei has grey and brown stripes allowing it camouflage when stalking prey in the thick vegetation of it's preferred habitat. These felines are fearless predators which will often attack prey much larger than themselves.

Night Stei

Large nocturnal feline predators found in light-to-heavy forest covered regions of Entorais, preferring some trees for perching and lounging in/under during the day. The fur of these beasts is uniformly black. The only real colour seen on a Night Stei is the pair of golden yellow eyes staring out of the shadows, the pink/red of their mouth, and flash of white teeth. In rare examples subtle grey patterning has been seen, but believed to be mutations, or hybrids with other species of stei.
