A Panther is a creature out of ancient myth that resembles a big cat with a multicoloured hide.
Under medieval belief after feasting the panther will sleep in a cave for a total of three days. After this period ends, the panther roars, in the process emitting a sweet smelling odor. This odor draws in any creatures who smell it (the dragon being the only creature immune) and the cycle begins again.

Panthers prey on just about anything they want to. They will patiently stalk a potential meal, striking whenever the creature lets down its guard.
Panthers grow to be over 9 feet long and can weigh up to 4,000 pounds.

A panther attacks by running at prey, leaping, and clawing and biting as it rakes with its rear claws.
Hide in Plain Sight (Ex): Panthers can use the Hide skill even while being observed. As long as he is within 10 feet of some sort of shadow, a panther can Hide itself from view in the open without having anything to actually Hide behind.
Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a panther must hit with its bite attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold and can rake.
Pounce (Ex): If a panther charges, it can make a full attack, including two rake attacks.
Rake (Ex): Attack bonus +10 melee, damage 2d4+4.
