Cat-like humanoids called Lynians with black fur. Their sticky-fingers never miss a chance to steal things and take them back to their den, forcing victims to seek out their lost items. Distracted by the sight of Felvine.
Lynians. They are essentially the same as Felynes except for coloration. As Lynians, they are related to Shakalakas; however, the brutal nature of Shakalakas towards any outsider probably means that Melynxes have no relationships with the primitive beasts. These monsters are attracted to dung piles and are found in colonies.
Wild Melynx can be seen everywhere except for the mountains; a Melynx in human employ can travel anywhere.
On the same level as Felynes, except they have a habit of robbing hunters of valuable items. They form campsites along with Felynes, wherein they keep their stolen treasures, hunters will be forced to travel there and retreive their items if they did not kill the Melynx in time. However, several locations, like the Volcano, have no Melynx drop areas, so if one did not kill the Melynx in time, one shall lose the item that the Melynx stole for good.
Their adaptations are exactly the same as the Felynes.
Wild Melynxes have a tendency to rob hunters of their items; in all reality, they are looking for Felvine, which they are strongly drawn to. Unlike wild Felynes, who use bone picks, Melynx uses a Catspaw, which has a sticky edge for stealing items. However, some Melynx repent of their thieving ways and take up work with hunters. They are usually young Melynx who don't want to become a thief, in all retrospects. If items are stolen by a Melynx, and are not recovered before the Melynx flees, in most areas there is a Melynx den, usually marked by a crude statue of a Felyne with paint on it. Items can be recovered here. There are dens in the jungle, desert, swamp, and hills.
