This four-legged predator, with a leathery brown hide marked by patches of long blackish fur, is one of the most brutal species in all of Clan space. Hunting in packs of anywhere from six to eighteen individuals, the sphinx raptor will kill everything it encounters, a behavior which actually hinders its own survival. Although it has poor hearing and vision, its sense of smell is good, and the creature can jump as high as three meters.[1]

When creating the Clans, Nicholas Kerensky briefly considered making the sphinx raptor a totem animal. However, despite its utter lethality, Nicholas decided that the single-minded nature of the sphinx raptor would be a poor model for his new society.[1]
