The Sable is a type of mustelid Friend that debuted in the original Kemono Friends mobile game. She has since been redesigned and has appeared in Kemono Friends Pavilion.

Appearance

Sable has fair skin and blue-black eyes. She has short, choppy bangs with two longer bangs that frame her face. Her hair, ears, and bangs are a cream color that have a small black dot in the middle of her forehead, likely representing the real life animal's nose. Her hair is also tied back in a ponytail with a thin blue string in the shape of a bow with two blue beads on the ends. The ponytail starts as a softer brown at the tie and gradients to a darker brown at the tips.

Her jacket is also a warm brown color with sleeves that go to her elbows and have a puffy fur trim. On the coat is a sailor style "collar" and cape. Under that collar is light blue ascot that is the same shade of blue as her hair ribbon. Above the collar is a small, light orange scarf. The skirt is a darker brown that is the same shade as her ponytail. She has fingerless opera-length gloves that are the same shade of black as her stockings and tail. The tail itself is long and sleek that fluffs out a bit at the end.

Overall her new and old designs are nearly identical; the main difference is her tail, which in her old design was more fluffy like a cat's tail. Sable also lacked the little black dot on her bangs in the old design.

The sable is a species of marten, a small omnivorous mammal from the mustelid family. It primarily inhabits the forest environments of Russia, the Ural Mountains throughout Siberia, and northern Mongolia. Its habitat also borders eastern Kazakhstan, China, North Korea and Hokkaido, Japan.

Sables inhabit dense forests dominated by spruce, pine, larch, Siberian cedar, and birch in both lowland and mountainous terrain. Their territories can be anywhere from 4 to 30 square kilometers (1.5 to 11.6 sq. mi) in size, depending on local terrain and food availability. However when food is scarce, they have been known to travel up to 7.5 miles before returning to their home territory. They tend to be very protective of their territories, often using scent marking from glands in the abdomen.

As they are omnivores, their diet varies seasonally: in the Summer they typically feed on mountain hares and other small mammals, whereas during the Winter season they eat berries, rodents, and hares. Regardless of seasons sables have also been known to hunt for slugs and various fish. Predators of the sable include wolves, foxes, wolverines, tigers, lynxes, eagles and large owls.

Trivia

  • The term has become a generic description for some black-furred animal breeds, such as sable cats or rabbits.
  • When they catch a slug, Sables will rub it on the ground in order to remove the mucus.
  • Sables can interbreed with pine martens, and the resulting offspring is called a kidus.
  • A group of martens (and thus sables) is called a "richness"
