    Something that is bipedal but moves kind of like how people free run and in fights crouches or drops to al fours?

    I'd go with "ape-like" or "gorilla-like" gait... but might emphasize the hands on the floor at some point...

    I presume you mean




    or



    BUT
    you get POV problems if we see what the character sees, but your character would not know what an ape IS....

    My first thought was also how gorillas walk. The term I usually see used to describe this is "knuckle-walking".

    Thing is it's like a reverse gorilla. It runs biped, climbs with all fours and fights often from the ground. It's moves are usually described as feline as it is a feline hybrid.
