"The untamed know no fear." - Nidalee Nidalee

There are few dwellers residing in the blasted and dangerous lands that lie south of the Great Barrier. Much of that world still bears the scars of past Rune Wars, especially the mysterious Kumungu Jungle. There are long-forgotten treasures in these strange places which many risk life and limb to acquire. Nidalee was only a young girl traveling with her treasure-seeking parents when they lost their way in the dense, rainy jungles. The jungle was unforgiving, and she watched her parents suffer agonizing final days as they fell victim to a mysterious and vicious disease.

Lore

As improbable as it was for a child to survive in the inhospitable jungle by herself, she did just that. Her youthful innocence and a fortunate naivete caused her to appeal to the beasts of that place and she was taken in by a family of cougars and raised as one of their own. She grew and somehow absorbed the raw magic of the dense wilds, evolving beyond both her Aspect of the Cougar 2.png human physiology and her Aspect of the Cougar.png feline affectation. Now a fierce, nigh-mythical Prowl.png predator, Nidalee battles viciously with Takedown.png tooth and Swipe.png nail against any who would threaten the vast jungle she calls home.
