Hides in Lunar Tarsh? Say it isn’t so!

As of Storm Season 1628, Varanis still does not know that Mirava and Fazzur arranged for some narrow, probably mostly useless hides of land to be assigned to Varanis in Fire Season (see Back2Life, Back2Reality).


Doqeia and Manasa were a gift from Varanis’ brother, Desdel. They are temperamental, but she is too stubborn/proud to admit that she can’t handle them well. Irillo helped her to buy Fish when she needed to replaced her very reliable zebra, Zukko.

Doqeia (Daron, black, mare)
Doqeia is temperamental: a bit wild, a bit unruly. Her moods shift quickly – sometimes she prances about and other times she wants to rebel. She’s strong, fast, and willing to go, but sometimes spooks at stuff that’s not there. She tends to get along with others, though she may bully them a bit. Doqeia is not interested in stallions.

Manasa (Daron, black, mare)
Manasa is a bitch. She’ll bite sneakily, tread on toes, and wait for vengeance. She kicks in her stall, is lazy, but at least she can mostly be trusted in a city and will make her way home. She’s a problem-solver and will always find a weak spot to break things. She’s steady and grounded, but vicious because she wants to be, not because she’s been hurt. She doesn’t panic. She’s steady. But she’s never going to stop pushing her personality on others and kicking out just to kick out.

Fish (Daron, black, gelding)
Fish has a mean streak a mile wide. He’ll bite, kick, and buck when he’s in the mood for it, and he’s in the mood for it frequently. He has nearly succeeded at killing Varanis more than once. He is definitely destined for sacrifice at some point.
