Big Cats: Lions, tigers, cougars, jaguars, panthers, leopards, cheetahs, lynxes....the great hunting cats of the wild are all in this category. Claws and sharp senses and a taste for meat epitomize these pooka, as does the typical feline haughtiness.
RF: 4

Birds of Prey: Majestic hunters in the sky, these sleek pooka can take wing as eagles, hawks, falcons, osprey, condors, vultures and owls. The rarest of all is the Bald Eagle Pooka. These fae often have wings, sharp eyes and even talons in their fae miens. Most display an appetite for meat above other foods and tend to have disconcerting stares.
For more birds, see the Common, Uncommon and Rare categories.
RF: 3 (5 for bald eagles)

Birds (Non-predatory): Scarlet macaws, great argus pheasants, green-backed heron, harlequin ducks, green woodpeckers, wandering albatross, ostriches, toucans & parrots. All these rare birds are found here.

Bushbabies Small, shy, lemur-like creatures found only in Africa and India, these fuzzy little critters are amazing jumpers. One tree-to-tree leap was recorded at 23 feet! They feed on fruit, berries and small birds.
RF: 3

Camels: Pooka of this affinity obviously do well in desert environments. Their animal miens have the ability to store moisture in their hump (or humps, depending on the breed). They are, understandibly, found near deserts, though nothing stops them from living in cooler locales. Camel pooka tend to be good-natured, but are known for spitting at people when upset.
RF: 4

Dolphins: A perennial favorite, humans love dolphins. These brilliant sea mammals are very clever and friendly. Dolphin pooka are understandably great swimmers, can hold their breath for a long time and are extremely playful.
RF: 4

Elephants: Big, strong (and reputedly with excellent memories), elephant pooka show an odd taste for tree bark among their other dietary staples. They dispise ivory hunting and often work to stop it.
RF: 4

Elk, Reindeer, Caribou & Bighorn Sheep: These wild grazing animals are popular game for hunters. Pooka with affinities for them obviously have issues with that. They also usually have chimerical antlers that can be deadly in combat, and are fleet of foot...er, hoof.
RF: 4

Fish: These fish include Alantic sturgeon, electric eel, barracuda and swordfish. Can you imagine the nose on a swordfish pooka? Would you want to shake the hand of an electric eel pooka? Ouch!
For more fish, see the Common, Uncommon and Rare categories.

Giraffes and Okapi: Perhaps it is best not to imagine the neck on a pooka with this affinity. Just kidding. These pooka wouldn't really have ten-foot long necks. How would they get through doors?
Okapi are related to giraffes, but have shorter necks and are purplish-maroon in color with black and white stripes. They are from Africa.
RF: 4

Gorillas, Orangutans & Baboons: These larger primates are humanity's closest relatives. Gorillas are strong as well as agile, and tend to be agressive. It is only a rumor that any of these pooka obsess over bananas, but they do like them.
RF: 4

Humpback Whales: The great mammals of the seas, it no doubt suprises many fae that a pooka could have an affinity for an animal that is just....so....BIG!
RF: 4

Kangaroo: Bouncy bouncy bouncy! These pooka are, despite popular belief, also found outside of Australia. They do tend to be excellent jumpers, and many have belly pouches in their fae miens (females, anyway). Despite another rumor, they are not naturally-skilled boxers.
RF: 4

Lizards: This group has geckos, frilled lizards, thorny devils, gila monsters and chameleons. Gecko pooka can often walk on walls while Chameleon pooka are notoriously hard to see when they don't want to be seen.

Misc. Mammals: All of these various mammals are grouped together here mostly to save room. Wombats, wart hogs, flying squirrels, steenbok, dik-diks, anteaters and the spotted cus-cus. Yes, anteater pooka do eat ants. Especially chocolate-covered ones!
RF: 4

Platypus: This, the goofiest looking of all mammals is also the only one that lays eggs. Still, they hold a special place in many people's hearts, and it's not suprising that some pooka take after them.
RF: 4

Polar Bears: The ursines of the arctic, these huge pooka prefer the polar regions and are almost never found outside of them. They make excellent swimmers and fishers.
RF: 4

Sea Lions & Manatees: Although not closely related, these two creatures are grouped together here. Manatees are also known as "sea cows". Pooka of either affinity would be skilled swimmers. Manatee pooka have a taste for seaweed.
RF: 4

Sharks: Hunters of the seas, these fearsome (and fearless) creatures think of only one thing: Food. Pooka of these affinities are obvious rare, mean, typically Unseelie, and found only near oceans (or in them). This category covers all breeds of shark affinities, including the incredibly rare Great White Shark.
RF: 3 (5 for great white sharks)

Snakes: Here you will find the nastier types of snakes: cobras, asps, boa constrictors, vipers and adders! They can make for some very nasty pooka. Yessssssss...
For more snakes, see the Uncommon page.
RF: 4

Wolves: One of the finest hunters nature ever produced, humankind has always had a love-hate relationship with the wolf. Pooka of this affinity are excellent fighters, and work well in groups. They also have a dangerous attraction to werewolves, and often refer to themselves as such.
RF: 4

Zebra: The famous black and white striped horse of Africa have long been a favorite of mortals. Pooka with an affinity for zebra always have skin colored in the same manner in their fae miens.
