Catfolk, known in their language as amurruns, are lithe, feline humanoids[1] most commonly found in Garund. They are known for their extreme gregariousness, and an overdeveloped curiosity that often brings them trouble.[2][1]

Appearance

A catfolk monk.

All catfolk have long tails and feline ears, but vary greatly in how much they resemble humans or true cats. This variety can manifest within a single clan or even a single family, and even closely related catfolk can look highly distinct from one another.[3]

Culture

Catfolk see themselves as wanderers, explorers, and wardens against evil forces.[1][3] Their curiosity takes them to the ends of the earth to seek and enjoy new experiences and cultures, and many worship Desna, goddess of travel. They are adept adventurers, often as rangers, rogues, wizards, or clerics; traveling catfolk are sometimes referred to as pouncers. Many speak their own language, also called Amurrun.[1]

On Golarion

The largest population of catfolk is in Murraseth, a nation of southern Garund, but they can also be found in Osirion.[4] Anuli in Holomog, due to its proximity to Murraseth, is known to house significant numbers of catfolk.[5] In Tian Xia, a large community of catfolk lives in the Valashmai Jungle.[6]
