Caracals /ˈkærəkæl/ are a species of medium-sized wild cat which inhabits dry environments. Which are predominantly dry grassland, deserts, and savannas. They are characterized by a robust build, long legs, short face, enormous tufted ears, and large canine teeth. They communicate with other caracals via a complex system of flopping their ears. Its coat is uniformly reddish tan or sandy, while the ventral parts are lighter, or white, with small spot-like markings. It reaches 40–50 cm (16–20 in) at the shoulder and weighs 8–19 kg (18–42 lb).

They are more commonly known around the Prime Material Plane as Karrah-kulak. This roughly translates to ‘Cat with Black Ears’.


Caracals inhabit the surviving portions of Africa, India, and Central Asia. Although they have migrated to other locations in the known Plane and even into the Outer Reaches and beyond. They are classified as mesopredators, as while they hunt a vast variety of prey, they are hunted by just as many predators.
