From Ryzom Wiki
A carnivorous desert feline with a fire resistant hide capable of blending into the desert hues and the shadows of the Prime Roots. The varinx prowls in groups of 2 or 3 around fire holes in the Burning Desert where it will save homins from fire and then eat them alive. Formerly trained by Fyros to save homins from flames, but the formidable beast, discovering the taste of homin flesh, soon turned against its masters. A tenacious attacker, once it has attacked it will fight to the death. Of the hounders family, the varynx prowls in the desert and the Prime Roots.
