Panthers were black-furred jungle wildcats similar to jaguars, leopards, and mountain lions.[3]

Description[edit | edit source]

Like all cats in the leopard family, panthers typically weighed 120 pounds (55 kilograms) and were around four feet (120 centimeters) in length.[3]

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Panthers were nighttime hunters, relying on their strong sense of smell and alert senses. They were expert climbers and had superb balance.[3]

Combat[edit | edit source]

Panthers would pounce on their prey after stalking them and would hold tightly with their jaws while raking with their claws.[3]

Sub-Species[edit | edit source]

  • Fey panthers and spectral panthers: Members of this species that were warped by the magical energies of the Feywild and Shadowfell. They were capable of traveling between their respective plane and the material.[2]

Reputation[edit | edit source]

Pathers were a favored animal of the god Tempus. Solonor Thelandira favored great cats in general, as did Thard Harr.[5]

Notable Panthers[edit | edit source]

The most famous panther in the Forgotten Realms was likely Guenhwyvar, the astral panther summoned by Drizzt Do'Urden. She was an unusually large and intelligent panther.[citation needed]
