Ragnarok joined Elysian Bengals on April 1st, 2018. He is our first homegrown and very handsome G7 Seal Silver Spotted Lynx (tabby) point. He has a beautiful straight profile, large round blue eyes, medium-length tail, and gorgeous rosetted pattern. he is a very playful and curious little guy. Ragnarok's mother is a beautiful Brown (Black) spotted (tabby) and our own girl Echo and his father is a handsome Seal silver spotted Lynx (tabby) Point, own stud Rummi.
Ragnarok is a type of battle vehicle following our Warhammer theme while his show name Valhallan Ice Warrior not only takes off of Norse mythology like his dad's name but also represents a group of soldiers also seen in the Warhammer universe.

ELYSIAN TWISTED HELIX
Cthulhu joined Elysian Bengals on February 2, 2021. He is our second homegrown and very handsome second generation outcross.
He is a beautiful Black Silver Spotted (tabby). he is monumental to the bengal breed sporting 50% outcross genetics (he is 50% Bengal, 25% American Short Hair and 25% Egyptian Mau), 34% Genetic diversity and impressive 11% Coefficient of inbreeding (COI).
We have waited four long years for this handsome boy. After three other litters of not producing a silver boy, I told Maeve ok whatever produce a boy for me as long as it's not brown I don't care and by some sheer luck, she produced not one but TWO for me to choose from.
You can read about his outcross story here
Twisted Helix continues to follow this lines' Genstealer Cult from Warhammer and outcross program theme. Originally Cthulhu's name was going to be Noan which is a third-generation genestealer. It seemed fitting. as he is a third-generation outcross, but his litter theme, I wanted to be epic since it was his parents' last litter together so we went with Epic Sea Creatures. We likes Cthulhu so much we kept it!
PROS: Big round eyes, dark dense markings, improved verticle, dense body, thick hearty tail, extremely affectionate, Diverse Outcross Genetics, Low COI
