Etymology Edit

Cat sìth (meaning "faerie cat", pronounced "Kat Shee") is a fairy creature from Celtic mythology, said to resemble a large black cat with a white spot on its breast. Legend has it that the spectral cat haunts the Scottish Highlands.

The legends surrounding this creature are more common in Scottish folklore, but a few occur in Irish. Some common folklore suggested that the Cat Sìth was not a fairy, but a witch that could transform into a cat nine times.

This enemy has also been known as the Panther. Panther is a mythological creature that resembles a big cat with a multicoloured hide. Under medieval belief, after feasting, the panther will sleep in a cave for three days, then roars emitting a sweet odor that draws in any creatures who smell it (the dragon being the only creature immune). They are eaten by the panther, and the cycle begins again.

The term panther may also refer to the big cats leopard, cougar or jaguar. Black and white variations also exist.
