Real Name: Ian

Identity/Class: Were-cat

Occupation: Unknown

Affiliations: Rich, Don, Teresa

Enemies: None known

Known Relatives: None known

Aliases: None

Base of Operations: Penthouse apartment, San Francisco

First Appearance: Bats, Cats and Cadillacs #1 (Now, October 1990)

Powers/Abilities: Ian can transform from human into a black cat. He can do this at a variety of sizes, from between the size of a housecat to being human sized, and resembling a black panther. He is also able to partially transform himself, so as to become a humanoid cat man, or even to just transform his hand to gain claws. In his altered state he is stronger, more agile and faster than normal humans.

History: Ian is a were-cat, able to assume the form of a man or a sleek black cat as he wills. How he became like this is unknown, as is how he came to share an apartment with the were-rat Rich. Like all felines he is fastidious about his appearance and his environment, which causes constant arguments with his slob friend.

Comments: Created by Tony C. Caputo, written by Diane M. Piron, and illustrated by Hannibal King.

Rich and Ian are not a couple, as they have separate rooms. Ian fancies himself a bit of a ladies man.
