|Back to Monsters||Pounce killers are small but quick
predators from another dimension. They resemble cats but have no fur and have more
canine-like facial features. They are named because of the fact that they pounce on
the victim, often from a height such as from a tree.
Pounce killerss are solitary creatures who only mate to bear an offspring, then the male leaves the female to care for the young until they leave, 1D4 years later. The gestation period is six months and the female gives birth to 1D4+1 young afterwards.
