Daytime Surveillance

The lands around New Atricis that are regarded as Atricis' new territory. Not as big as their previous protective range, but still lots of space and wilds to explore. Dragon Flights and Wher Runs also occur across these lands.

Natara frowned down at the blade of her sword. She had cleaned and sharpened it only the night before, and couldn’t find any flaws. But it was easier to fuss over the perfect edge of her weapon than it was to think about the fact that she might need to use it today. She made weapons, she trained to use them, and she enjoyed both activities. But she was very conscious of the fact that violence was never one-sided. If they ran into any of the felines while they were out trying to discover their normal hunting grounds and den, there were likely to be injuries on both sides. So far the felines seemed to prefer attacking at night, so the dayhandlers might have an advantage, but she had seen the scar on Atumra’s leg. Even though he earned it before choosing to bond with her, it made Natara nervous. Two felines had come close to killing him, had almost permanently injured him. How much more damage could an entire pride do when working together?

Which was why whers and handlers were going out in groups to look for information, of course. She chose not to think about the fact that it hadn’t helped a rather large group of wherhandlers that went out searching. They had not been prepared for the magnitude of the problem, they had been overconfident.

You and I alone could handle 2 or 3 felines easily, Atumra told her calmly, and Natara scowled. That kind of attitude would get them killed, and besides,

But there are obviously more than 2 or 3, so we will not try alone, he finished.

Natara nodded. At least Atumra was the kind of wher that learned from his mistakes. Just like she was the kind of handler that learned from hers. Even without the felines in the jungles, she knew better than to go out alone, with her poor sense of direction. Point her at an enemy, she could fight, give her a forge, she could make or maintain weapons.

But don’t give her a map and expect her to read it.

So she was waiting for the other dayhandlers that had been assigned to this group. Hopefully one of them was better at finding his way around the jungle. Certainly, every one of them would be eyes, ears and a sharp blade to keep them alive in the process.
