Summon forth your battle panther, fully armored to protect the stealthy beast from the occasional poison dart, poison arrow, poison-tipped spear, poison spell, and any poison words directed its way.
History tells us that no dark hero's story is complete without the companionship of a wily panther. Their sable coat, their savage nature, their attunement with the umbral, their thirst for blood. It is as if the gods created these creatures in the image of a dark knight...or perhaps it was the other way around.
If you help me out, I will tell you more about my feline friend here. - Hinoshin
