The young liontaur stays at home during this stage. The liontaur also learns hunting and tracking skills during this stage.
The final stage, adulthood, last from 16 until death. To be accepted as an adult, and a member of the liontaur clan in which the liontaur was born into, the liontaur must undergo a long and difficult trial. Those who do not succeed, die. The trial is of course different for male and female, and varies among the various liontaur tribes. It is also during this stage that a liontaur may find a spouse. According to liontaur custom, the male must win the love of his hopeful mate by challenging and besting her other hopeful mates. If there are no other contestants for the female, then it is decided that the female is unfit to be mated and sent into exile.
Death comes naturally and expectantly to the liontaur. They hate the idea of death, seeing it as them losing control of their life, and a force that takes everything from them. Near the time of their death they will often go into a bitter rage, angered that death is coming and they have no way of stopping it. Some even kill themselves, desiring to be in control of one’s death.
Liontaurs are large and big boned. In human form males have well developed beards, typically of a reddish color, and blondish, to reddish hair, usually bushy and somewhat mangled. Females have long blond or red hair and are slender and built . In lion form they resemble large lions.

Liontaurs do not use surnames. Instead they will refer to the tribe that they are part of, for example, Leon of the Eros Pride. First names are often very beast-like.
9. Racial Relations
Liontaurs have actually had very little interaction with most races partly because most of them live in the more remote areas of the world.

The two races which they always fight against are the kobold and the adolfite.
