A pre-War panther
|The following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.|
This animal is large, fast, silent, and obviously a carnivore. It hits good and does a fair amount of damage. It can sometimes surprise its prey, but usually depends on its great speed to reach enemies before they have a chance to react. It is questionable as to whether or not it would be accepted in a town. Perhaps if leashed with a chain.
Panthers were to appear in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios. A panther is also featured in the Penny Arcade comic "One Man, and a Crate of Puppets" as an inhabitant of Vault 43.
