AKA Devil Shark and Running Shark
There can be little doubt that the Panther Shark is a Lemurian Biomancer Gene-Mage creation. The massive creature is surprisingly fast on both land and sea, and possesses obvious, lethal combat capabilities, from a massive maw filled with shark teeth, to claws and excellent agility. On dry land, Panther Sharks can run at great speed, leap, climb and pounce. The underbelly is lined with blade-like spikes that can fold to retract inside a flap of belly skin or extend to slash opponents as the creature leaps over them or to do additional damage forma pounce or grappling attack.
Panther Sharks range in color from light to dark gray with a white underbelly. They are a favorite of Oceanic Guardsmen, Scouts and Serpent Hunters. Unlike some War steeds, Panther sharks are very aggressive and love to be on the prowl, stalking enemies and prey, hunting or fighting.
The Panther Shark is capable of running 40 mph (64 km) maximum and can swim through water at a maximum speed of 30 mph (48 km or 26 knots). This speed is doubled along a ley line.
