a White Lion of Chrace

Lions are big cats that live and hunt in prides. [1a]

White Lions

Huge and cunning predators that prowl the forests of Chrace on Ulthuan, they are almost as large as an Elven Steed and when a pride is hunting, no creature within their territory are safe. They are fiercly loyal to those in their pride - a ttait that has give rise to many High Elf poems and songs. [1a]

Despite their dangerous nature, the elves do nto regard them as evil but either beasts to feared but respected or occassionally a creature to be nutured. High Elf Mages have been known to bind entire prides when they march to war but they are not easily controlled. [1a]

Some of these Mages have formed bonds with controlled Lions of Chrace that have remained even after the rite of binding has faded - giving them a unique and formidable bodyguard. [1a]

Quotes

When Kurnous, the God of the Hunt, met Rahagra, the father of the White Lions, they fought for three days, from dusk to dawn, but neither could claim victory. So began a bond of brotherhood between the hunter and the lion. We are rivals, as brothers are, but our kinship is the stronger for it.

~ Scarloc, Wood Elf Hunter.[1a]
