10 True Things About Catfolk

  1. Catfolk tend to be quite superstitious, and pick up even more such behavior from people of other races and cultures with whom they associate.
  2. Matriarchs lead catfolk clans, and their followers demonstrate nearly unswerving loyalty to their mistresses.
  3. Humans, dwarves, and elves can’t speak fully fluent Catfolk because they don’t have tails – but kitsune, lizardfolk, and tieflings can.
  4. Clan matriarchs mate with several of the most desirable males among their warriors and diplomats to ensure that their offspring are of the strongest possible stock.
  5. An unarmed catfolk with extensive hand-to-hand combat training is easily the equal of a fully armed and armored human. Their claws give them a distinct edge in battle.
  6. Catfolk look very disfavorably upon thieves, and this is probably why they don’t like tengu very much.
  7. A rare few catfolk sorcerers are descended from a kind of feline fey called the grymalkin. They use their power over shadows, innate understanding of illusions, and breath-stealing magic to fight foes.
  8. Some catfolk collect gods like children collect marbles.
  9. Tree-dwelling catfolk clans produce elite warriors who can walk on branches and leaves as easily as a human can walk down a dirt road.
  10. Catfolk priestesses of Sekhmet make a potent type of magical wine which enhances their healing abilities.
