"Is he a three-eyed raccoon?"

Bush Whacker Rascal Small

Rascals (katergari̱s avevaiopervazi) are a species of three-eyed alpine feline indigenous to the Precarious Ledge of the Bush Whacker World. People in the nearby town of Haven have been known to mistake the creatures for raccoons for unknown reasons, as the Rascal looks nothing like a raccoon.

EtymologyEdit

The generic name for the species, "katergaris", is taken from the Greek word for "rascal", "katergári̱s". The specific name, "avevaiopervazi" is taken from the Greek word for "precarious", "avévaios", and "pervázi", meaning "sill", in reference to their home ecosystem, the Precarious Ledge.

PhysiologyEdit

Rascals have adapted to walk in a bipedal position. This may or may not have something to do with their biome of choice, as it may make it easier for them to scale the regions of the Precarious Ledge where they are found. Their fur is pseudo-countershaded, being dorsally orange and ventrally white; while the white would camouflage them against the sky above, the ground around them is gray, not orange. Their muzzle is covered in white fur while the nose is button-like and exposed, being pink in hue. Its third eye has been reopened and a full eyeball has grown in its location, increasing the creature's overall depth perception. There is no evidence to indicate that they can roar, and they are considered to be a small cat, hinting that they likely can purr and probably have retractable claws.

Felines are hypercarnivores, and it is easy to presume that the Rascal is no different, especially with the snaggled teeth that protrude from its lips, obviously being adapted to grasp prey.
