Mentioned above are only the best of the best of Shedu Cats. Only the ones who have had a significant influence on the development and evolvement of Shedu’s.
And maybe one day your Shedu will meet all of the requirements to be listed, too.
In the Shedu breed there are four basic lines:
Ramses Line (black line) - That first black cat had incredible speed and managed to set huge records. In fact, some of them are still not beaten to this very day. Ramses is the fastest cat - 313 km/h. All of his offspring had shown great racing potential as well as a fancy dark coat.
But, one major issue with the cats of this line - their terrible temperament. Some say it’s a flaw, others believe it’s an asset. Three quarters of all fatal accidents involving Shedu Cats were caused by the cats from this line. And they are also not that good at endurance races.
Then, we get the most widespread and most balanced line, the Spartak/Spartan line (red line) - These cats are basically the root and the base of all Shedu’s. They are amazing at racing. Both long and short distances. Some of Spartak cubs got really close to breaking Ramses records. Actually, Spartak himself is a record holder previous best records, which Ramses then smashed.
The Spartak line is famous for their all around abilities and firm character. These cats are not sweet, playful little toys nor plain pets, but loyal companions/partners in both crime or hard earned victory. Brown and dark, tan shades are common among them.
The Savoy line (orange line) is one of a very small branch. But very notable. As the Ramses line has almost disappeared, Savoy’s cubs are currently the fastest on the track. They usually have a friendly type of character with fancy jaguar coats and there are even some black cats among them. The Savoy and Spartak lines are going head to head in official racing today.
The Mahogany line is really special one. (blue line)
These are princes and princesses of the Shedu Cats. Famous for their beautiful light colored coats involving a lot of cream and champagne genes. They have quite a lot of cats with long manes, as well, and are incredibly beautifully put together when looking at their conformation and built. They are the ‘’top models’’ among the Shedu’s. Maybe they are not that good at racing, but they have best characters and personalities around. They are willing partners and very sweet cats. They are best at trial rides and are very good at uncommon tasks. They are fast witted, human-oriented animals.
You've put so much thought into this!
A question - are the lines e.g. skipping generations?
So, can I read the sheet and assume that for example Tears of the Saints and Salem King are the parents of Goldeneye and The 9th, or could there be generations between them that are just not notable?
