From the Dark
Catfolk live a life of danger in this world. Put differently, this world may be too dangerous for them. Their curiosity commonly triumphs over their need for self-preservation. As a result, many catfolk have lost their lives to dark wizards, evil fey, and even humanity over the centuries.
Those that remain today commonly form packs. Individuals come and go from these packs frequently, but sticking together is good for survival. These packs sometimes live in cities or towns but frequently they live in the wilderness, setting up temporary dwellings as needed and then moving on.
Catfolk are fast to make friends and are loyal as long as their friends are good to them. But their curiosity continues to be a danger. And that means catfolk are quick to take on the mantle of champion and head into the mists in search of adventure or whatever might meet them on the other side.
