Melynx are small, bipedal, cats and one of two subspecies of Lynian, the other being Felyne. They are blue eyed and black with white markings and found living in the wild as well as in human villages. While often heard making animalistic noises they are able to speak a spoken language but rarely do so and unlike Felyne it is unusual to encounter them working within human society as most choose to live in the wild.
Melynx live in groups, often peacefully in the company of Felyne but unlike Felyne they are not as friendly towards humans with most Melynx working as thieves stealing from hunters. Any stolen items can be recovered from their camps and like Felyne they are fond of Felvine as it will be the first thing they steal and acts as a great distraction for them.
