Example text

And their Kin will mourn over their thrice-wretched bodies as we call forth the rains over the plains of Africa once more. Organization Historically, Ajaba society, like that of their hyena Kin, was made up of tightly knit family groups: packs for hyaenid Ajaba, and small, sometimes-nomadic villages for homids. These packs consisted of related Ajaba and their Kinfolk, and contained anywhere from a half-dozen to nearly 100 members. Each of these family groups was a part of a larger clan, which included the Ajaba-related packs in a particular region, or in the case of homid Ajaba, the members of related tribes in the area.

It was a glorious time for the Bringers of the Rain. 42 But the dry times did not end. And though we held our duty dear, the rains would not fall, no matter how many tears we called to summon them. The wild flocks faded. Even we could not bring swift peace to all those who faced the long night with hollow bellies, never to see another dawn. Just as hunger drove the herding villages to us, seeking respite, it brought other predators into our lands. Our cousins, the cats-who-walk-on-two-feet, sought the dwindling herds also, and we warred beneath the twilight for food to feed our cubs.

It was not always so. In the light of First Morning, we were a proud people with a sacred duty. We were the choosers of the slain, the cullers of the flock, and in our footsteps the tears of those who mourned fell like rain. Our jaws offered salvation from a slow death by hunger, by age, by illness. We cleared away the misshapen, the perverse, the wrong-blooded and warped who sullied the herd with their taint. We slew the weak, that the strong might grow stronger and the fallen feed the scavengers and carrion-birds.
