About the Species:

Sielaxen are a fantasy wolf-like species I created when I was a kid. They usually walk in a semi-upright stance, though they can get on all fours for short periods of time. They are carnivorous, but not efficient hunters, so they use their handlike paws to craft tools and snares instead. Their fur comes in bright colors and they have orbs at the end of their long, prehensile tails which contain magic related to their life force and glow a color based on their mood. Sielaxen will die if their orb is punctured, and because of this vulnerability they are a wary species who protect themselves by choosing three friends in their adolescence whom they will spend the entirety of the rest of their lives with. They are a spiritual species and the chief they follow is normally one with strong spiritual gifts. They are also craftsmen, as mentioned, and wear a lot of jewelry with specific meanings to signify their relationships, accomplishments, trade, and so on.

About Teillana:

Teillana (TAY-il-LAH-nuh), or Tei, is the young, female chief of her tribe, mated to Fuagarth, the smith, and bonded also with Saxifrage, her childhood friend and the healer, and Airassen, Saxifrage's mate and a trapper. Her name means "clouded vision" in her species's language, and she is spiritually gifted by a peculiar way of seeing both more and less than what's "really" there. Her father was the previous chief, and she wears his claw around her neck. She is calm and self-possessed, playful and determined, and it would be difficult to rattle her.
