The cugaro (both singular and plural) are sentient, semi-aquatic felines that dwell in marshy areas and murky ruins.  With webbed paws and snorkel-like organs that elongate up to 5' long, they are well-suited to prowling waterways, and can stay submerged indefinitely.  Cugaro Surprise on 1-4 on 1d6.

Cugaro possess vast mental powers, and are skilled in telekinetically manipulating objects and artifacts.  Each individual always has a favored weapon, and wields it as much as possible over teeth and claws; they're civilized, you see.

The cugaro fancy themselves as collectors and caretakers of Ancient knowledge.  In the Hugeston, Wrexus area, a large tribe of cugaro have claimed a grounds of a ruined university as their own.
