Leonin are tall lion-like humanoids that move with a boldness that suggests their physical might. Tawny fur covers leonine bodies, and some grow thick manes ranging in shades from gold to black. While their hands prove as nimble as those of other humanoids, leonine have retractable feline claws, which they can extend instantly. This, along with their ability to produce bone-shaking roars, gives most leonine an air that readily shifts between regal and fearsome.
