Tales of Tolgard
A bhaergala looks something like a cross between a wolf and a lion, although it is clearly not related to either creature. The fur of a bhaergala gives off a faint but unmistakable odor, which has been described as smelling like fresh bread or biscuits.
The bhaergala can mimic the speech and songs of men and elves with great skill. When hunting, it often uses this power to lure them into an ambush. Most bhaergalas can speak the common tongue of men.
