Cobalon's legs have black bands with dark and light blue fur and semi-large black feet.

Trivia

Origin

Cobalon appears to be based on the character of Athos from the novel The Three Musketeers. Like Athos, Cobalon is the oldest and the de facto leader of the group. It also bears close resemblance to a markhor or an antelope species such as the greater kudu or eland.

Name origin

Cobalon's name derives from cobalt, both the metal and the color.
