It’s common to hear sirrikans referred to as “flying cats,” which is accurate, but doesn’t help distinguish them from other flying cats. Also, if they could understand that label, they would be offended and a murder attempt would follow at some later time, as anyone familiar with sirrikans should expect.
These felines have very dark fur found in black, blue, gray, and purple. Their points (ears, face, paws, and tips of their tail and wings) are a darker color than their body, except for black sirrikans who may possess some combination of a white blaze, paws, and/or belly. Rare sirrikans have a brindle pattern, but some scholars maintain these are a different creature entirely; only black and brown or gray colors are seen on these coats. They’re small, weighing no more than eight pounds, with long, slender builds, big eyes (which come in amber and green), round heads, large ears, and furred wings.
Sirrikans make poor pets for most people. Their special combination of curiosity, flight, and mischievousness means they can rarely be kept out of anywhere, are constantly into something, have little regard for any possessions, and not remotely close to the bare minimum domestication most house cats possess. However, when they choose someone, they are fiercely loyal to that Namegiver and may care little for anyone else. Even their supposed “owner.” This makes even experienced Beastmasters wary of these murderous little creatures, regardless of how adorable they might be (pspspsps).
In the wild, they organize in loose groups called “nuisances,” with each sirrikan establishing and defending their territory which they regularly patrol. Members of the nuisance can move between the territory of their fellows and the whole nuisance may investigate if there is something very interesting. Such as a group of Namegivers who haven’t been properly inspected and attempts on their lives not conducted recently. Not out of a need to kill or because they did anything wrong, but because this is simply what they do. Also, it’s fun.
Resting in sirrikan territory is generally inviting the most adorable kind of trouble and attempts on your life. They’re constantly watching, their eyes gleaming, tails swishing, and wings gently flexing. Unnerving. And adorable. But mostly unnerving. And adorable.
Sirrikans are suitable as animal companions.
