     Like werewolves, werefoxes, werecoyotes, and wererats, weretigers look very much like the Tigris kin of the Jakara species. In their humanoid form they tend to develop into sleek  muscular versions of their species, they tend to grow a couple more  inches than normal and tend to become very agile.  Additionally, in  their humanoid form they also tend to develop "stripes" of either  thicker hair, their skin alters into a strip pattern along their  shoulders, upper arms and back.

     Those that have this  therianthropy tend to develop specific personality traits that include  arrogance, perfectionism and a singular drive to be the dominate  therianthrope in the area.  They also develop a strong sense of  protectiveness over those that they consider family.

      Weretigers  have a deep dislike for cities or large towns and prefer the smaller,  rural regions were they can assure that they are the only therianthrope  in the area.  They are often in contention with werebears for the same  regions and areas.

      In their hybrid forms they are  indistinguishable from the Tigris kin of the Jakara. Except weretigers  appear more animalistic and feral.

     In their animal form they appear as huge tigers. Jakara and Kanus are immune to this therianthropy.

Special Abilities 

Blood Drain A  tiger is able to drain the blood of a target upon making a successful  bite or claw attack with 3 or more successes. A tiger can drain  d10+7 worth of Health Points. If a tiger attempts to hold on to the  attack a tiger and the target are considered grappling. If the  attack is maintained then this loss is continuous every turn. 

Crushing Bite With  a successful attack, a tiger can grapple a target and begin to crush  it. If a tiger is twice the size of the target it can completely  engulf the target, and can begin to crush the target with its body.  Those attacked in this fashion are allowed an opposed Agility  Check or Strength check to avoid this grapple effect. A tiger gains a +2  success bonus to this check. Those that fail are considered  grappled by a tiger and take 2d10 points in damage every turn, this damage ignores any armor absorption. Those that are held are  allowed to attempt an escape from the crushing as per the grapple  rules every turn. Unless a tiger releases the target it must be killed  and its hold forcefully opened. 

Deep Scratch With a successful claw attack a tiger deals an additional 2d10+5 points of bonus damage. 

Pounce This  ability increases the strength of a tiger's leaps, allowing it to  triple its jump. If the tiger leaps upon a foe during combat, it  can cause an additional 4d10 points of crushing damage that ignores  armor absorption. If this occurs the “attack” gives the defender  the opportunity to dodge out of the way with an Agility Check at a TS of  6.
