Firestar rose to prominence with his clan of great cat shapeshifters through trial and reputation. Originally bred by metahumans to serve as a guard animal at a corporate plantation, a shadowrunner raid against a compound in Sao Paulo saw him get loose and disappear into the rainforest. Proving himself to those who had roamed the Amazon all their lives, his genetics ended up serving him well in the hostile jungle and eventually, he became leader of their order.

Firestar is a genetic hybrid that has the most in common with a tiger than any other great cat. A mottled red fur cat with vibrant eyes, he has seen a lot and bears the scars of several territorial battles. He cares about every member of his clan and he doesn’t not lightly send members of his clan off to fight.
