Companion to a panther might not be realistic but we also don't have the necessary amount of citizens to play every role we require.
Playing in the respect of the culture, customs and mentalities as described in the books is always possible in SL. The difference is that SL allows us to give more depth to our characters, in the expression of their emotions.
Playing a snowflake character has nothing to do with the amount of players. Too, for adding to the realism of a background, the NPC is your friend.
