Blue dragged her feet across the ground, drawing patterns in the sand with her hoof. She sighed when she glanced over her shoulder to see a large fishing vessel slowly gliding through the ocean behind her, watching its silhouette moving across the horizon. Blue shook her head in disgust when she saw the tops of the nets dragging through the water behind the ship. Blue and her tribe were often pushed out of their hunting grounds in the ocean because of the increase in human activity. The humans often ran their boats through the water to catch fish for themselves. Unfortunately, they seemed to be taking too many fish out of the water and not leaving enough for Blue's tribe. They had suffered from a fish shortage for many years now, but they seemed to be pushing through okay, although they often went hungry for a few days at a time. Luckily, Blue's father was the Alpha of her tribe and was very good at hun

"Blue...Blue...It's time to wake up," a familiar voice entered her dreams. Blue turned over in her nest, trying to savor the last few moments of rest before she was stirred from her sleep. "Come on, baby...It's time to go hunt," her mother tried to coax her.

Aitivalku and Valtisas - the two most important Tursai in almost every race. For the types of Tursai that operate under this sort of social structure, reproduction is completely banned for almost everyone; is it the task of the Valku and Tisas to parent their race. Usually, there are only one of each; one mother, the Valku, and one father, the Tisas. The mother's job is protecting and raising the larval Tursai to adulthood, while the father tends to stay out of her way while warding off potential threats.
Anyone can become one of the pair; that is, of course, if they're the right race and gender. To ascend to this rank, they must kill their predecessor in a to-the-death gladiatorial duel.
