Shikari Khanar

"Be careful to who you show your hunter skill to or you may be hunted instead."

These fox-like creatures, once tall as a horse, were worshipped long ago by humans of the wild. To those tribes, the Shikari Khanar were depicted as the spirit of the hunt, capable of catching and devouring any animal breaking the balance of the land. To show their respect, the tribes would bring offerings to the den of the beasts to appease them before their winter hunt. However, all that changed when the human of metal conquered the land.

The Shikari Khanar had to evolve, taking a smaller stature as the centuries went on. In doing so, the beasts blended in more easily in the wild, but their thrill for the hunt and want for balance never faded. Their interests were piqued as the humans evolved and rose further up the food chain. Such power compared to other living creatures strengthened their appetite toward this new predator. Slowly, the beasts integrated themselves into human society and evolved along side them as so their hunting tactics.

Now, during the autumn and near hunting season, the Shikari Khanar await patiently, lurking around their prey. The beasts would starve itself all summer getting ready for the new meal needed for their winter slumber. They would look for their prey by strength, tactics and kill count.

Once hunting season begins, the creatures would make contact with their target. Using a unique aroma secreted from their body to bewitch their quarry, they invite it to their den, away from human

intervention. To further build up their appetite, the Shikari Khanar would capitalize on the prey’s lust, using their own body to absorb their strength for a good, long hour.

Once the prey is weakened and can barely lift its body, the Shikari Khanar would turn back into their beast form, enjoying the prey’s fear and confusion. Not wanting to waste anything and to enjoy their hunt to the fullest, the predator would take their time, slowly swallowing their prey whole and alive inch by inch.

Once the prey has entered their gullet completely, the beasts will lie down and enjoy the prey’s

desperation for freedom, showing his true strength in action. Such struggles please the beast, causing it to fall into a deep slumber lasting until spring where the cycle begins a new.
