Race: Displacer Beast
Cass is a relatively ordinary-looking displacer beast; a thin, black, six-legged panther with a pair of barb-tipped tentacles (similar to those of a squid) sprouting from her shoulders. She doesn't look exceptionally strong or fast or durable, but does seem to project an aura of competence and control, as if everything around her was falling in place exactly according to plan...
She wears mithril full plate armor, its chest blazoned with a blood-red rendition of the holy symbol of Hunger-In-Darkness - a stylized fanged mouth open wide. A massive rectangular shield (usually stowed on her back, and also made of mithril) bears the same symbol.
The armor is not entirely mithril, though; the edges are filled in with more flexible black dragon scales, in place of the normal clumsy overlapping metal joints.
Wis: too much
Few have heard of Cass; fewer still actually know who or what she is. Still, a few determined adventurers, seeking a truly powerful oracle to answer some intractable question, have eventually stumbled upon her. But such encounters are rare, and even the most knowledgeable bard or priest is unlikely to know more than her name.
There are, of course, plenty of stories of adventurers who went hunting monsters in the depths of the earth and simply vanished, or occasionally were driven off by displacer beasts wielding powerful spells and items. But Cass herself does not appear in such tales.
