- "These noble cats are truly one of nature's finest and deadliest creations."
- —Dr. Benjamin Slater
The Bengalaas is a felinoid life-form native to Aiur. Bengalaases can be solitary or can hunt as part of a pack.
The Bengalaas is a fearsome predator, and has been noted to "play" with their prey like a house cat plays with a mouse. Their pack hunting tactics are acutely intelligent, capable of bringing down prey several times their size.
The Bengalaas' name is a variation on the Bengal Tiger, but it is actually closer to a panther in appearance and habitat preference.
As a life-form of Aiur, if one of these creatures is slain, it disappears in a blue flash, its mass converting to psionic energy.
