RENAMED: Looking for more of my kin (Where are you????)
I won't put down much but I thought, as not everyone died there might be some of my kind about, does anyone know about strages? Large dog like feline like, each with their own individal pattern. If anyone is out there please reply to this and leave their strage name.

Re: Where are you????
moving this into the appropriate section, renaming the topic, and asking you to post more information on what you are looking for - dog/feline is not a very good description.

thank you.

Also helpful would be where the word "strage" comes from. Is this an obscure human term?

Re: RENAMED: Looking for more of my kin (Where are you????)
No, strage is what I am, there were many of us nearer the beggining of Earth. I'm sorry but you must understand that I can't put down much about them for I am hoping for somone else to tell me. It will prove that they are who they say they are so to speak. Feline, canine is the only way to describe us. Where ever they are they will know the word "stage" and "Lexth", that's all they need to know to find me.

thankyou for reposting it, I wasn't sure where to put it at first.

A hyena is a cross between feline and canine, or so I've heard from those nature shows. Are your females dominant?

I thought about hyeneas atually... but no, everyone is equal, strages have never been in packs, its against our nature. And, I surpose the Old Law.

You mean the planet we're all currently living on? How come strages aren't in our fossil record then? You know, expecting others like you to just "know everything" is a bit...odd. Have you considered that some like you may not realize that a strage is what they are? Maybe instead they found an animal to attribute their kinness to.

Motley Wrote:A hyena is a cross between feline and canine, or so I've heard from those nature shows. Are your females dominant?

A hyena is technically from the Feliformia suborder (within the order Carnivora,) and this suborder includes cats (Felidae,) Civets and Mongooses (few different families, including Eupleridae, Herpestidae (this one includes Meerkats,) and Viverridae,) and Hyaenidae (hyenas, obviously.) If you study hyenas themselves there often appear to be both "dog like" and "cat like" traits. But they are not the only creatures within this family to cross borders like that. Even within the Felidae, you can find Cheetahs. They are cats most certainly, but can be quite dog-like. Their claws are non-retractable and blunted, like a canine's. They appear to take quite well to domestication and can be trained for aid in hunting with humans.

The only type of Hyenas that have female domination is the Spotted Hyena. Other species have little sexual dimorphism, perhaps with males being slightly larger than females. Spotted Hyena females are not only larger than the males, they have pseudo-male genetalia which, among other things, gives them complete control over whom they decide to mate with (impossible without her full co-operation) and makes birth (especially the first one) rather dangerous/difficult. To the best of my knowledge they are the only type of Hyena with these traits.

Many other creatures within the Feliformia suborder could be described as having both feline-esque and canine-esque traits. Some types of Mongoose, for example.

Outside of Feliformia, if you look at Foxes (not always included with Canidae) they are often thought of as being both cat- and dog-like.

I am sure there are many more creatures that I am missing, and this does not even include species which became extinct before humans ever started recording observations of their behaviour (let alone ones which became extinct before humans came around.) We can only guess at the behaviour of these creatures; sure we can make pretty "close" educated guesses based on many factors, but it is still just a guess.

If these beings were present at the "beginning" of this world, our planet Earth, I would have to guess that they are perhaps some type of spiritual being, or celestial ("of the stars,") or just an "alien" to this planet Earth; something along those lines. Unless you are speaking of some of the very first self-replicating "organisms." Or a rock.

I hope this doesn't sound perverse, but wow... I so got a tingle reading all of that precise information. *shiver* Well done, Ix! *has a weakness for intellect- hope this doesn't creep people out ^_~*

I just asumed they would remember who they'd been, they must do! Why wouldn't they? I didn't even consider that they wouldn't...<!-- sSad --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_sad.gif" alt=":(" title="Sad" /><!-- sSad --> As for fossils there are many uncovered fossils still to this day, although I do not expect any to be uncovered at all for the bones had different substances and would not have been preserved.
If you think of the origanl dragons and the strange griffins and creatures like them, otherkin who have those souls are like strages.
When I say we were near the start of Earth I mean near the start fo the first animals and spirits, not rocks, fungus ect.
I hope this is clearer and doesn't confuse you <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->
