Hunters often seek to tame Rak'shiri for its striking appearance, which was shared only with Shy-Rotam, who before patch 2.3, was a Horde-exclusive quest-spawn. They are based on mount skins, thus when originally viewed in the hunter's Pet window, the model was placed lower than normal pet models, since the viewer was leaving room for a rider to be shown.
Of note is that Rak'Shiri is mentioned as prey of the all-time famous dwarven game hunter, Hemet Nesingwary. According to his Outland hunting buddy, Shado 'Fitz' Farstrider, he and Hemet met as rivals both attempting to catch this mighty cat, and ended up making a friendly competition out of it. (Which, according to Farstrider's regret, was also the event that gave him the title "Fitz".)
For a while after Cataclysm, Rak'shiri's hide became white instead of aqua, although she retained her stats as a rare spawn. Her eyes were also the same color as the white tigers and snow tigers in the real world. It was later switched back to the original color. Her Terrify attack remains the same.
