These were lion men found by Alexander the Great. They had the bodies of humans, the head of lions with huge eyes and furry ears and an extremely long mane that drooped from the shoulders to the waist. It could speak all the languages of the human race which it used to converse with to travellers a lure them to their death. The only sign left of someone killed by the Donestre was the severed head of the victim. What was most peculiar is that the Donestre would sit by the head and weep.
