The Torat is a predatory cat species from the planet Chil'a'Chin. Torat's are solitary in nature and prey on any creatures that suit their dietary needs. The panther like species have orange eyes that appear to glow, matching the lava color around them. Their fur is layered over top of armor plates that allow them to be nearly impervious to damage from the lava that makes up the majority of their homeworld. This species has been known to hunt the Xen'Chi, becoming a feared creature not just to its prey but also to many Xen'Chi children as they grow up.
Male Torat's maintain a wide territory that overlaps with other males of their kind. More often then not confrontations end in a brutal display of fighting that leaves one or both of the males too injured to survive long beyond the fight. Females while not territorial do display the ability to be territorial while they have young around.
