[Interest] qml 'subclasses'

I'm relatively new to QML so I'm not sure how to accomplish this.

Basically I want to define a custom object in QML, with custom properties
and functionality, and then I want to be able to 'subclass' that component
with different date for those standardized properties and whatever else
needs tailored to the instance.

To use a game analogy


    id: npc

    property int attack: 3

    property int defend: 2


SpecificMonster {

    // would like to inherit from monster so that it shares functionality and

    // properties that are not overridden

    id: npc1

    property int attack: 4

    property int defend: 4


I could create a separate file/database of the instances, and
instantiate the monster component and fill in their properties with
setProperty, but I would like to keep everything in QML, in case a
specific subclass needs to provide more interactive functionality,
animation, or whatever else QML can provide.

Is there any way to do this?
