Nacatl are a type of leonin[edit source]

I'm still waiting for Brady's reply, but in this thread he's said that nacatl are actually leonins, which has still left unanswered whether or not they're retconning all the anthropomorphic cats, or just those 2 races as leonins, so I'm going to edit the entry with the information we have as of this moment.--Japoniano 19:28, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

It is actually rather clear in the Planeswalker's Guide, Nacatl are a the leonin of Alara just as Akki are goblins of Kamigawa. Oracle of Truth 19:33, 24 September 2008 (UTC)
Okay, that makes a bit of sense. I'm a little hesitant to put all catlike humanoids under the heading of "leonin" since we don't know if they're retconning cat warriors or nishobas, but it's helpful to know that about nacatl. I was laboring under the impression that the lion- and jaguar-like nacatl were separate races, but apparently it's just a high instance of sexual dimorphism.--Filby 13:13, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
It is becoming more difficult to distinguish cat warriors and leonin, but the latter have a unique feature: the guide mentions that all Nacatl males have manes "like lions". Oracle of Truth 13:42, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
