There were no trees nor mountains to block his sight; no earth nor rock beneath his hooves.
Only an ocean that stretched infinitely in all directions,
And a sun that sunk sank slowly, deliberately,
Casting off brilliant colors as it fell.
Before it settled, at last, on a red sky at night.

The image of gentle light through leaves; a sun-dappled forest floor.

He is alone.
(if you do not count the sea of life before him;
Acha, Kimeti, Kiokote, Totoma, Zikwa,
Of every colour, every shape, every age
)

He has been performing for hours.
The audience is silent.
Waiting.
Someone, far in the back, whispers,
"He must have more than one trick, surely?"

She, like any good Totoma, has always enjoyed solving conflict quickly and with force - there was no disagreement too small for a little scuffle, in her opinion - no matter the size of her opponent. Because of this, the name "Strikes-First" was a teasing one for most of her life: even as a lamb she challenged those twice her size for a prime patch of grass or the best place to rest in. It wasn't until her herd began travelling south, however, that she earned the name. A desperate band of totoma had kidnapped a lamb from her herd and blocked their passage, demanding a share of their dwindling resources for the lamb's return. But before anyone could react, she had charged forward and knocked one of the leaders out cold, allowing her herd a chance to overwhelm the other, rescue the lamb, and continue their journey.

Even as a lamb she found herself prone to pacing the plot of land where the dead lay, returning to her mother and father with seemingly unending questions about who was interred there and why. With time the place became a comfort to her - the dead happened to be excellent listeners - so she began to care for it in return, assisting with burials and maintaining the grounds.

[ So named for the time he managed to subdue and befriend an injured golden eagle by acting as a second pair of eyes over her eggs (and, with time, chicks) and nursing her back to health. This was not accomplished without receiving a number of talons directly to the face, granted, but he remained stalwart and eventually gained her trust. ]
