Another night-crawling opportunistic carnivore, Xaruda is within a group that possesses bioluminescence. Their dorsal mane and face markings consist mostly of translucent fur to radiate the fur fibers that subtly emit pale blue and pinkish colored light. Scattered within the dense underbrush of semi-tropical forests, their bioluminescence is part of an ecosystem full of it. For the purpose of hunting, Xaruda can "turn their lights off" to take advantage of their matte black body to slip invisibly through their twinkling habitat. Long and sensitive whiskers help to navigate silently through the sometimes complicated brush. During the day, Xaruda climb to a favorite hiding spot amid the lowest branches, or just high enough to be out of the way from the daytime traffic. Xaruda tend to be largely solitary, but actively raise young together with their mate until late adolescence, where the usually two siblings will remain together until conditions prove favorable to venture on alone. Varying between 60 and 110 lbs, Xaruda make slightly more difficult a companion to achieve a bond with due to solitary nature, but when achieved are superb hunters and make great protection.
