Name: Altra

Gender: male

Fandom: The Mage Storms Trilogy by Mercedes Lackey



Quick Biography

Altra is a Firecat, sent by Vkandis Sunlord to watch over the young sunpriest, Karal, starting when he travels to Valdemar as secretary to his mentor. In a previous life, Altra was a Son of the Sun (religious and secular leader) in Karse.

Physical Abilities

He can claw or bite as viciously as a wildcat of comparable size. He can hunt and track by smell.

Superhuman Abilities

Altra can Jump (or teleport) short distances, even carrying one person with him. He can shoot lightening from his claws. And his usual mode of speech is speaking directly into someone else's mind. He isn't listening to your thoughts though, just projecting his. Also, he typically masks his unusual size with the seeming of a normal cat. This doesn't happen as much lately, since there are so many people here who accept him easily for what he is.

Unusual or Magical Possessions



Altra is an unusually large, long-haired cat with markings like a gold-point Siamese cat. He has expressive dark blue eyes. To most people, he would seem an ordinary cat, if a bit extra-fluffy and 'talkative.'


He's very loyal to Vkandis and Karal. Usually a bit on the lazy side, but he can be helpful when he's not playing aloof.

RP Canon

He was here alone for a long while, eventually living in Feanor's barn and sometimes watching over people on the sly. He had a Karal for a while, which made him happier. Now, he mostly sleeps by the fire in the main room and hunts for fun.

Since the influx of new arrivals, he's taken on the charge to follow and try to protect both Daeron (for Merlin) and Maeglin (for Aredhel).
