Felidae Framilars Twenty Black Cat Manor at S. Dot brought to you by Bright Eyes, Shen Shen, Nico, and Dottie (Cat - grace, mystery, cleansing, purification)Cat is honored in cultures around the world. She is stealthy, sly, and rather vain. Cat knows many secrets, but shares few of them. Cat shamans tend to be loners who keep their own council. They are fastidiously clean and presentable whenever possible. Cat shamans generally toy with their opponents-threatening, taunting and confusing-rather than going directly for the kill.)
Ursus Arctos Americanus Diptych (Bear is a totem found in cultures wherever bears are known, from North America to Europe to Asia. He is powerful, but gentle and wise. He tends to be slow-moving and easy-going unless he has to move fast. Bear is slow to anger, but terrifying in battle. Bear shamans tend to be calm, cool, and collected. They are healers and protectors of the natural world as they see it. A Bear shaman cannot turn down someone who needs healing without good reason.)
Canis Lupus Arctos Eight (Wolf -great sage, teacher, no shirking of duty, inner strength, love, loyalty. Wolf is recognized as a hunter and warrior worldwide. He is fiercely loyal to the other members of his pack. As the ancient saying goes, Wolf wins every fight but one, and in that one, he dies. Wolf shamans are loyal to friends and family unto death. They do not show cowardice in battle and their word is their bond.)
