- A large spotted feline predator. It is capable of incredible speed when ambushing its prey.
Cheetahs are very rare creatures who inhabit tropical flatlands, where they roam as solitary hunters. These carnivore predators are nearly as heavy as a dwarf and may present a problem to small domestic animals, though they're likely to avoid dwarves themselves. As expected of the species, cheetahs are incredibly fast runners, running at 87 km/h (the max gait speed handled by the game), making them the fastest animals on land. A newborn cheetah is called a cub.
Cheetahs can be captured in cage traps and trained into valuable exotic pets, and fully tame cheetahs can sometimes be brought in elven caravans. They can be further trained into war or hunting beasts, with their speed making them particularly good for dealing with fast intruders like kobolds. They can be butchered for a decent amount of returns, though their rarity makes this a possible waste of a good cheetah unless a breeding pair is obtained. Products made from cheetah parts are worth thrice more than those made from common creatures.
Some dwarves like cheetahs for their speed.
