There are currently eight regular SoA lines apart from lions, including two separate wild dog sets and three big cat hybrids. Although most of these species are not quite as popular as lions are in the shop, they are still regular species and thus have four stages. Because they are not quite as common, however, pride/pack/coalition options for them are usually more limited. There is currently only one unique-lined pack among all of the less-common regular species, made for wild dogs.

Each species has their own information listed in the posts below.


(Please note that any lineart sets that are not complete may have pieces of other sets substituted into them or, for new sets, simply a question mark until the lines are released. This guide will not list any edited or uniquely linearted SoA, as those belong solely to those individuals.)

Cheetahs typically live up to 12 years in the wild. They weigh 36 to 65 kg (79 to 140 lb) and stand 67 to 94 cm (26 to 37 in) at the shoulder. Cheetahs are best known for their speed, being the fastest land animal on earth, and can reach speeds between 112 and 120 km/h (70 and 75 mph). They can only run in short bursts (they aren't built for distance) and they also lack strong climbing abilities. Cheetahs are carnivores that prey mostly on animals under 40 kg (88 lb) and unlike other large cat species, cheetahs do the majority of their hunting during the day.

In SoA, cheetahs have between one and five cubs. For more information on breedings and everything that influences them, please see the breeding information thread in the breeding subforum.

The hyena species featured in SoA are Spotted Hyenas, also called Laughing Hyenas. Their average life span is about 12 years. Unlike most species, female hyenas are larger than males, weighing roughly around 12% more. Males weigh between 40.5 and 55.0 kg (89 and 121 lb), while females weigh between 44.5 and 63.9 kg (98 and 141 lb). Adults stand between 70.0 and 91.5 cm (27.5 and 36 in) at the shoulder. Although they have become popularly known as scavengers, the majority of their diet is derived from hunting medium-sized mammals. They clash with lions over food and territory in the wild and often have their kills stolen by the larger species. However, they will not hesitate to steal the kills of cheetahs or leopards and it is usually only male leopards that will stand up to them. They may also occasionally follow wild dog packs in an attempt to feed off their kills, though single hyenas are often mauled by packs if they get too close.

In SoA, hyenas have between one and five pups. For more information on breedings and everything that influences them, please see the breeding information thread in the breeding subforum.

Leopards are a feline species known for their stealth and excellent climbing abilities. In the wild, they live about 12 years on average. Leopards stand 45 to 80 cm (18 to 31 in) at the shoulder, though they vary greatly in weight between male and female with the male being 30% larger. Males weigh 30 to 91 kg (66 to 200 lb) where as females weigh 23 to 60 kg (51 to 130 lb). Due to their unrivaled climbing abilities, leopards spend a lot of time in trees and are often seen lounging on branches. They also store their kills on high tree branches to avoid having them stolen by larger species less adept at climbing.

In SoA, leopards have between one and six cubs. For more information on breedings and everything that influences them, please see the breeding information thread in the breeding subforum.

Wild Dogs live up to 10 or 12 years. There is little difference between the genders. They stand on average 75 cm (30 in) at the shoulder and weigh about 17-36 kilograms (37-79 pounds). Wild Dogs are known for their great skill as hunters, with a success rate of 80% (compared to a lion's 30%). However, this success is built heavily upon their pack organization. Like the other species in the shop, they are prone to having their kills stolen by larger predators, especially lions.

In SoA, wild dogs have between one and eight pups. For more information on breedings and everything that influences them, please see the breeding information thread in the breeding subforum.

The Peke Na is a wild dog pack that lives in a sparse forest on the Northwest shore of Lake Victoria, which promotes a nocturnal way of life due to the hot days there. For the most part they are like normal wild dogs, though old bloodlines tend to run smaller than the average rogue. Apart from their nocturnal habits, they are best known for having multiple names - each name is unique and serves a different purpose.

Cheetons are the offspring resulting from a breeding between a cheetah and a lion. They are typically smaller than lions but bigger than cheetahs. Each cheeton is unique, varying between the traits of their parents. Some may look more like one species than the other, but will always be recognizable as a mixed blood species. However, cheetons always sport tufted lion-like tails and male cheetons always inherit the full mane that male lions have, though it is somewhat smaller than a lion's mane.

Being hybrids, cheetons are normally infertile, but those rare ones that are fertile have a half-sized litter resulting in one to two cubs. For more information on breedings and everything that influences them, please see the breeding information thread in the breeding subforum.

Leotahs are the offspring resulting from a breeding between a cheetah and a leopard. They are typically shorter and bulkier than cheetahs, but taller and skinnier than leopards. Each leotah is unique, varying between the traits of their parents. Some may look more like one species than the other, but will always be recognizable as a mixed blood species.

Being hybrids, leotahs are normally infertile, but those rare ones that are fertile have a half-sized litter resulting in one to two cubs. For more information on breedings and everything that influences them, please see the breeding information thread in the breeding subforum.

All the lines in this post were available at one point during the shop's history but for whatever reason are no longer in use. Some of the lines have been revamped and recycled for use in other packs/coalitions but the original is no longer being used for new SoA.
