Physical Description

Kumalars are very lean, winged feline predator found in arid, rocky regions. At 25 kilograms, they are a bit larger than a lynx. The kumalar is a sleek animal with smooth hairless tan colored hide and large tan colored wings, not unlike that of a bat. The head of a kumalar is very feline with a snout and long whiskers. The cat like tail ends in a hairless spade shaped tip.

Combat

Kumalars are excellent hunters and, like their feline cousins, use a combination of stealth and speed to chase down or pounce on their prey. They are able to fly very quietly and sneak up on unwary prey rapidly. Kumalars have three retractable razor sharp claws on each foot and large fangs.

Habitat

Kumalars prefer warm, arid regions and can be found in deserts, badlands, rocky mountains and scrublands.

Ecology

Kumalars are remarkably aggressive hunters and lone kumalars have been known to attack small groups of people. Kumalar are distantly related to kittersal, but have a very different temperament. Where as a kittersal makes a fine pet, the kumalar retains it wild nature and is notoriously difficult to train.
