Bron (Leader): 19 yrs old [Yajolimyr]
Bron is a kind and fair leader, and his Clan is prospering well under his leadership. At the last Clan Gathering, Bron maintained the clanís First status that they had under the leader-before-him. They also came home with new members, including a beautiful second mate for Bron and his Second-in-Command, Roov. His first mate Ilka has given him two sets of fine twin boys, and for Bron, life could not be much better. He is fairly open-minded for a Clan Leader, having had the Mog-ur as a companion and also from the interesting changes of the last Clan Gathering. Bronís totem is the Bison.
Ilka: 17 yrs [OPEN]
Ilka has been mated to Bron for a long time now. She has given him two healthy twin boys. The eldest, Drov, will follow Bron as Leader. Drovís twin is acolyte to the Mog-ur. The youngest twins are just starting to emulate the men. She is a proud, if somewhat weary, mother. At first Ilka was unsure of the new situation when Bron took Roba to mate at the last Clan Gathering. But Bron is caring and generous to both of his women, and Ilka has adjusted well and pleased for the extra company. She is concerned over the conflict with Brac and Roba, but sheís trying to keep her hearth running smoothly. She is even stepping back when Bron is around, allowing him and Roba extra time together. Ilkaís totem is the Giant Hare.
Drov (Future Leader, Ilkaís son, Bracís twin): 9 yrs old [MissSpock709]
Where Brac is the intellectual in the family, Drov is the jock. Not that heís stupidóheís actually very smart, so donít misjudge him. But heís glad heís going to be the leader and not the mog-ur, since the idea of spending large amounts of time meditating rather than hunting is distressing to him. He also enjoys getting his wayónot that heís bossy, which heís notóhe just enjoys being the boss. Like the fact that he was able to request Gada as his future mate in place of Koraóthatís good stuff, and he feels that he, as the future leader, deserves it. Really, though, heís a kind and considerate boy; heís going to make a good leader someday. Drovís totem is the Wooly Rhinoceros.
Brac (Mog-urís acolyte, Ilkaís son, Drovís twin brother): 9 yrs old
As one might expect of such a guy, Bracís thoughtful, kind, introspective, intelligent--and heís also good-looking, charming, and horny, but that last oneís beside the point. Heís very ready to be a man, but some ďunpleasantnessĒ a few months ago set him (and his brother) back a bit. Heís also in love with Roba, Bronís young mate who is Bracís age, but *sigh*, thatís the only young woman a dashing young acolyte canít have. Alas. . . Bracís totem is the Aurochs.
Grol: 4 yrs [MissSpock709] Grol is the eldest of Ilkaís second twins. He is hairy, rather loud, and demanding. He is beginning to show interest in hunting and bossing females. Grolís totem is the Boar.
Dorn: 4 yrs [MissSpock709] Dorn is the youngest son of Ilka. He is a quiet, thoughtful young man. He is also hairy and well-developed, and promises to be a strong hunter. Dornís totem is the Eagle.
Roba: 8 yrs This young woman of Nord's clan was mated to Bron at the last Clan Gathering. The arrangement of mating the leader was far more pleasing than mating Rook, but she was not without her fears. Roba would not be the only woman at Bron's hearth. Ilka, his first mate, would be there as well and Roba wondered whether there would be as much hate between them as there had been between Roka and Kaga. Thankfully, the two are quite fond of each other; Roba views Ilka as her mother away from home. Though Roba became a woman at the age of 6 (the youngest age most medicine women have ever heard of), she has not had her curse since the gathering (in other words, the first time was a fluke) and no children have been born to her. Though the people of Bron's clan have accepted her warmly she still misses her home clan and one person in particular...old Okra. Roba wonders how the old woman is doing and whether she has left for the spirit world. Roba has also developed feelings for Brac. Roba's totem is the Turtle.
Garv (Mog-ur): 23 yrs
[Yajolimyr] Marked by Ursus when he was only six, Garv is now known and respected throughout the clan as The Mog-ur. He bears the scars upon his left shoulder, but he is still young and a strong and able hunter. Garv was born to the Medicine Woman and to the hearth of the Second-before-Roov. His mother died shortly after his attack from Ursus, and his sister Edra remained with the clan to care for him instead of moving to Grocís clan to train with their medicine woman. After she became a woman, Edra mated and moved away from the clan. Garv is pleased to have her back and living with him. Their relationship has grown to a new level as adults. Heís also enjoying the time spent with his acolyte. Garv is somewhat dreamy and absentminded, but he is powerfully connected with the Spirits. His totems are the Grey Wolf and the Cave bear.
19 yrs [Missspock709]
Agra is the mate of Mog-ur. Agra has been feeling the Totemís Late Battle and this has made her even more uppity than normal. Sheís rather convinced that her ways of doing things are the best ways, though sheís not overbearingó-not really. Sheís more opinionated than overbearing. No, more talkative than opinionated. Perhaps there isnít a word for her. Her youngest daughter Gada just became a woman and sheís thrilled--the fact that Drov wants to mate her has made her even more thrilled, because even though she loves Garvís acolyte Brac like a son, Drov is the future leader *ah-hem*. And then thereís the grandma thing, which she simply CANNOT wait for (other daughters who have left the clan have had babies, but Gadaís will be the first she actually has a hand in raising). Agraís totem is the Hamster.
She just became a woman so yay for her! Gada is a rather special gal, as one would expect of a Mary Sue such as she. Actually sheís rather far from Suedom, but she does have the typical ďthat damn galís got too many idersí in her headĒ thing that one would expect of the daughter of Mog-urís hearth. She has an inner peace with nature and the world that makes one suspect that her spiritís been around more than once, and an intelligence thatís sourly unused in the clan world. Gadaís totem is the Squirrel.
Edra (Medicine Woman):
21 yrs [Yajolimyr]
Edra is Mog-urís sister, and she is a hardworking and obedient woman. After the death of her mate, Edra mourned appropriately, but she was delighted to come back to her home cave. Edra has enjoyed assisting the Medicine Woman, Gava, and she spends time helping everyone in the cave whenever she can. Sheís also an excellent cook. Edraís totem is the Roe Deer.
Roov (Second in Command): 19 yrs
Despite his young age, Roov is Bron's Second-in-Command and he is very proud to serve with Bron, whom he holds in the highest regard. Roov is sometimes a little too enthusiastic, having a tendency to jump too soon into whatever it is that's going on, but his earnest nature complements Bron's stern seriousness well. He takes his job as Second very seriously. Lately, Roov has been loosening up. Though he is still quick to act, he has become more relaxed at home in his hearth. He finds that the children bring him much joy. Kora's interest in flint-knapping has caught his attention. He sometimes watches her as she works, filled with pride at her growing skill. Drod is the little man in Roovís heart and he has decided to begin taking him out to teach him about hunting and tracking. He is even considering making Drod a spear. As for his new woman, Boda, and her son, he cares for her but has not known her for as long as his first woman. He can sense the tension between them but chooses to stay out of it in hopes of them coming to a resolution. Roovís totem is the Leopard.
Gava (Medicine Woman): 16 yrs old
Gava is Roovís mate and a medicine woman of a long line. Her mother and her grandmother are both medicine women in Groc's clan. Like most medicine women, Gava is an excellent cook, knowing how to use her herbs for seasoning as well as healing. With Drod in his annoying weaning year, little Eba at the teat, and Bodaís constant bobbing around the hearth with her little son, Gadaís stressed. Give the woman a break; sheís a working mother, after all. Gavaís totem is the Grouse.
3 yrs [MissSpock709]
Drodís just starting to take an interest in ďboy stuffĒóthat is, hunting and bossing the girls around. Heís got the cute little spear one would expect and heís constantly underfoot around the hearth because heís too old to sit and play like his sister and too young to really go out with the older boys and men. Drodís totem is the Mammoth.
Boda: 11 yrs old
Boda is the daughter of Ooga, originally from Crag's clan. She caught the eye of Bron's second-in-command, Roov, at the Clan Gathering and became his second woman. She had a crush on him at the time and was glad that a man of such high status would want her. But upon returning to Bron's cave, she slowly began to dislike the man. He never mistreated her, but she was mad that she had been taken away from the people she knew and loved --- and it didn't help much that she was pregnant. She had always wanted her mother to be there when the time came for her to give birth to her children. Instead, she was rather alone when the time came. She gave birth to a son shortly after Roov's first woman, Gava, gave birth to a daughter; ever since Boda 'showed-up' Gava, animosity has been growing between the two. Boda desperately wants to return to Crag's clan but knows it won't be happening anytime soon. She keeps her mind off it by doting on her son and doing her women's tasks. Bodaís relationship with Roov is starting to look up. Roov rescued her and two other women from a dirk-toothed tiger, and she now has deep respect for the man . . . and maybe, just maybe a renewed crush on him. Boda's totem is the Mink.
The first born son of Boda, born to Roov's hearth. A chubby, happy little boy, Brog was born 4 moons ago. He is not of Roovís spirit. Brogís totem has not been revealed.
Vour: 25 yrs
[OPEN] Vour is the second oldest member of the clan. He is just beginning to enjoy what most men experience in their youth --- a family. His first mate and daughter died in childbirth. He is now quite protective of Uda and her children, and was especially so during the first few months after the birthing of Roog and Vara. Vour cares for Uda and her children very much. His totem is the Hawk.
14 yrs [OPEN]
Uda is the daughter of Iva and was born to the hearth of old Roog, who now walks with the spirits. In her 11th year she was mated to the much older Vour, the only man old enough to take a mate at the time. At first it was just a mating of convenience for both: Vour was in need of a mate and Uda was well past the age of womanhood and still unmated. Their relationship has quickly grown from there. A year after the mating, Uda brought twins to Vour's hearth and the man has become quite fond of the two children. Uda and Vour share quite a unique bond and live happily in their hearth. Uda is a good-looking woman by clan standards and is a doting mother and loving mate. Her totem is the Hare.
2 yrs old [OPEN] Roog is the son of Uda and twin sibling to Vara. Roog is a lively little boy who enjoys listening to the hunt stories around the fire and playing with his sibling Vara, with whom he shares a deep bond. His totem is the Horse.
2 yrs old [OPEN]
Vara is the daughter of Uda and twin sibling to Roog. Vara is a reserved young girl who tends to stay back from activity. She does enjoy watching the women work and talk, and she of course enjoys a good game with her sibling, Roog. Her totem is the Owl.
: 16 yrs [xoisme2002] Korv tends to be quiet, and tends to listen rather than talk when others are talking. He's strong and smart, though a good hunter, gentle with women and children. When his mate, Ulka, died of a snake bite, Korv came from Grocís clan seeking a mate. Ibaís family had died not long prior, and the pairing worked from the beginning. His daughter has taken to Iba, who has brought another daughter to Korvís hearth. He is very much hoping that Ibaís next child will be a boy, but he is just glad to have a growing family. Korvís totem is the Cave Lion.
15 yrs [Yajolimyr]
Ibaís first mate and son both died in an unfortunate accident. Iba was crushed and depressed for a long time, until she met Korv and Raka. Raka needed a mother so badly, it was just what Iba needed to move on with her life. Iba gave birth to Edie at the last Clan Gathering, after a strange and terrifying encounter with the Others. She made friends there, however, and something strange happened to her when she participated in one of their ceremonies (apparently expected of females there). Edie so different from all the other children, Iba sort-of hopes her baby is a normal clan baby. Ibaís totem is the Grouse.
6 yrs [AnnaBarish]
Raka has changed a lot since her mother's death and has accepted Iba as "Mother". She is rapidly approaching adulthood, and the fact that she helps take care of her mother's mate and the baby has helped that along. She is very obedient, and easily mimics the other women. However, sometimes her stubborn streak comes out, but she has more control over it than she did. Her totem is the Skunk.
4 yrs [Yajolimyr]
Edie is an interesting child. She is tall for a girl, and her hair is a bright orange profusion of curls. She is rather loud, not unlike Ilkaís son Grol, and always seems to have a lot of energy. Iba is worried that her totem mixed with the Others, but Mog-ur tells her that his own grandmother had the same totem and features. Fox totems chose their people wisely, he has said. Iba just hoped Edieís strong totem wonít make it difficult to have children.
Iva: 2 moons [Yajolimyr]
9 yrs [xoisme2002]
Dorg is the son of Iva. He is shy, but loves to hunt small game. He follows the leaderís sons around a lot, but doesn't interact much with them. Dorg's totem is the Red Wolf.
7 yrs [Sundragon_75]
Kora is a curious, excitable girl. She loves to explore the world around her and try to figure out exactly how it works. She often has to be reigned in by her mother and told to sit still for a time, but soon she is wriggling with impatience. She enjoys going with Gava on forays for herbs and learning about how the medicine woman makes illnesses go away, but has not yet shown an interest in following in her mother's role. Instead, Kora has shown an interest in flint-knapping, an activity that she finds challenging, but not tedious. Her totem is the Beaver.
20 yrs [DECEASED]
Iva was mated to Roog for most of her life. She is an excellent cook and keeps a clean hearth. Iva is a bit of a loner, especially since the death of her mate. Her totem is the Otter.
13 yrs [xoisme2002]
Grouv had his manhood hunt 2 years ago. He is the eldest son of Iva. Grouv is a skilled hunter and learned the art of the sling from his mother's mate. He has recently mated Aza. Grouvís totem is the Lynx.
9 yrs [xoisme2002]
Aza is Edraís daughter, born to the hearth of Douv. Aza's totem is the Jerboa.
14 yrs [OPEN]
Born to Groc's clan, Thod came to Bron's cave before they left for the clan gathering so that he'd have a better chance of getting to mate one of the women of Bron's clan. (Groc's clan was blessed with many boy-children for many years but few girls, and now there are not enough women to go around). Thod impressed Bron during a Bison hunt, and he was given Ira as his mate. Thod was never fond of the sea-side/fishing lifestyle of Groc's cave, so he decided to stay with Bron's clan. A serious young man, he puts forth his best effort to be the ideal clan man and to be as "normal" as he possibly can be. He has achieved this, though he does tend to be more emotional than usual, caring deeply for Ira and letting her get away with mistakes more than other men would. His totem is the rare animal of the Hipparion, or the Three-Toed Horse.
10 yrs [OPEN]
Ira has grown from a clumsy, forgetful little girl to an attractive and thoughtful woman. She set her sights on Thod the moment he walked into the Clan, and she persisted to put herself in his path until Bron granted them the right to mate. Ira's totem is the Giant Hamster.
