Vale Sabre Cats are hostile animals in The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard. They can only be found in the Forgotten Vale and Darkfall Cave. They can be distinguished from the regular sabre cats by their purple and brown mottled coat and by having less fur than the other variants, making them slimmer. Additionally, vale sabre cats emit a slight purple bio-luminescence that is extinguished upon death.

    • If you can use the Vale hides for a Sabre Cat statue in a manor in HearthFire , would look like a Vale Cat?
    • I don't think so.
