The ki-rian is a vicious feline hunter native to the Kalasaka continent on New Kyoto. Like the Kyotan Armor Bear, it too has armored plates along its back and head. In fact, the ki-rian was initially classified as another species of armor bear despite its different features due to this similarity.
Ki-rians are agile and aggressive pack hunters. They are blamed for thousands of death and injuries among the population on Kalasaka annually. Every few years, the natives wage a massive hunting campaign to reduce the ki-rian population. However, this practice only briefly contains this hardy species.
