Tigrids are a type of Cthonian animal, which are carnivorous and large. They are well adapted to predatory life, fast and strong, with many exhibiting primitive intelligence.

They usually have a striped camouflage, hiding them in the shade of Clubtrees or breaking up their form in the night.

Tigrids usually eat Kineks, but have also been known to eat Kivae and washed-up carrion.
