The power to use the abilities of the Nemean Lion. Variation of Mythical Bestiary and Feline Physiology.

Also Called

  • Nemean Lion Mimicry


User with this ability either is or can transform into the Nemean Lion, a vicious mythological leonine monster in Greek mythology that lived at Nemea, whose hide was impervious to weapons, and had claws sharper than mortals' swords, capable of cutting through any armor.

The lion is usually considered to have been the offspring of Typhon (or Orthrus) and Echidna; it is also said to have fallen from the moon as the offspring of Zeus and Selene, or alternatively born of the Chimera.
