Jeweled Panthers are magical constructs that take the shape of Panthers. Created by skilled jewelcrafters, these Panthers can be formed from any color gemstone and can be any size, from the small and playful cub to the larger variety which can be used as mounts for those able to control them.
How these beings came to be is unknown. Rumor among the Pandaren is that the very first Jeweled Panther was crafted by an ancient Pandaren Emperor for his young son after his other son died of an unknown illness. Since then, others have been created either by popular demand or through twisted sorcery. The largest known group of these constructs are the Jade Panthers located in the Jade Forest of Pandaria who were created by the Widow Greenpaw. Unlike most Jeweled Panthers who are docile, these constructs guard the forest surrounding the house of the Widow even though she is long since dead, killed by adventurers during the Pandaria Campaign after she attempted to turn them into jade. Loyal to their mistress even beyond the grave the constructs remain within the forest and continue to guard the now abandoned hovel.
