The kamadan is a feline-like predator that may somehow be related to the displacer beast. It is a fierce predator and highly territorial, hunting just about anything that spends too much time in its territory. The kamadan has a hunting range of about 5 or more square miles. It makes its lair under rocky outcroppings or within caves.
The kamadan has coarse, yellowish brown fur and a leopard-like body and head. It is about 9 feet long and weighs about 600 pounds. Kamadans speak Common.
