Pard was known to avoid civilization and only barely interacted with his childer. Despite this minimal contact, his childe Arnulf both feared and revered him. It is known that Pard clashed with a pack of Silver Fangs and managed to kill every single one of them except for one. The survivor, Guillaume Sun's Glory, would later establish a sept dedicated to vampire hunting that would eventually target Pard himself.
A "Pard" was a species of legendary creature from medieval bestiaries. They were felines with spotted coats, and were extremely fast (reminiscent of a cheetah). They were believed to mate with lions to produce leopards.
