This amphibian is the size of a large dog and has a long, sinewy body. Its skin glistens with a slimy coating and changes color as the Chlovi Cat creeps through the fungal underbrush.
Chlovi Cats, which are not feline at all, reside at the top of Nyriaan's food chain. They have been responsible for hundreds of deaths in mining towns across the planet. Settlers on Nyriaan shoot Chlovi Cats on sight rather than risking the danger that they represent. Unfortunately for Nyriaan's colonists, Chlovi Cats have learned to predict the movements of their prey and attack from ambush rather than attempting direct assaults.
Named after a species of fungus that grows across Nyriaan's surface (Chlovi), Chlovi Cats are small amphibians with long, sinewy bodies and glistening skin that changes color from black to steely gray. Like other species on Nyriaan, they create bioluminescence, which they use for mating displays and rudimentary communication while hunting. A Chlovi Cat's primary weapons are it's wide maw filled with needlelike teeth and four sets of wickedly curved claws.
Despite their small size, a pack of Chlovi Cats can bring down a full-grown Lluma Bull. They prefer to eat young Lluma and Pherins, although Chlovi Cats that have tasted Human flesh prefer it to their natural staples.
Chlovi Cat Tactics Edit
Chlovi Cats use pack tactics, communicating with their pack mates through a combination of bioluminescent displays and croaking calls. They swarm over targets in groups of three or more, biting and clawing in an attempt to disable their prey. Once the prey is disabled, the rest of the pack converges on the victim.
