Tigers are feline predators found, among other regions, on Atlantis and were featured in Atlantean myth. According to their legends, a tiger that was being chased by hunters called out to the Woman in the Moon for help. She flung down a vine for him to climb up to safety, and he lived with her there for many years. Since then, all tigers worship the moon with roars in the night. Tigers were also referred to by Atlanteans as the striped brothers or the striped people.[1]

The tiger was the totem animal of Kull, and he considered it "tambu" (taboo) to harm one except in self-defense.[2]
