The danger scale is here in the wiki: http://www.felarya.com/wiki/index.php?title=Fauna

The scale is not applicable for Joey, Rehsams, Will, Trish, Hansel, and Tandy.
But if it were, Will would score Very Low, Rehsams and Tandy would score Low, Joey and Trish would score Moderate, and Hansel would score Medium. They're all awfully dangerous people and full of surprises.

If Kaede decides to eat you, there's little to nothing you can do about it. Therefore she scores High, like Crisis.
Metzger is special for a fairy in that he's invisible, and macho enough not to giggle to himself while hunting. Therefore he scores High, like a Titan Chameleon: other senses would detect him, but who has those, anyway? He's kind of jinxy, though, which might reduce his effectiveness.
Samantha's kind of vanilla for a fairy, so she scores Medium, similar to an Echydin. Once she lays eyes on you it's usually over.
Tina is special for a fairy in that her standard powers aren't that well-practiced. So she scores Moderate, since her choices are more restricted than usual for a fairy.
Marlene's special for a fairy in that she's got no hard size cap... but effectiveness in hunting humans does. Also she's a dunce, which keeps her from being as effective as she could be with determination like hers. Therefore, she scores only Moderate... same as a glouteaux.

Marlene: Why do you keep calling me stupid?
Me: Because you are.
Marlene: But I never do anything stupid anymore!
Me: But you will, Marlene. You will.
Marlene: You really need someone to catch the stupid ball for that Hansel to look good, don't you.
Me: :-/ Okay, maybe you aren't as dumb as you look.

Then some others you haven't seen yet.

Elsie's a sadistic, evil, deceitful monster, but if you do the right thing and are a cold heartless bastard don't trust her one bit, you can get away by just running away really fast and for really long (if you meet her, chances are there's nowhere to hide in several dozen miles around). So just hurry, she will eventually lose her balance because of her breasts, fall, and sprain an ankle or scrape a knee, then don't try to go back and take a shot at befriending the twins when she turns on the waterworks. She scores just Low, since all you've got to do to survive is run away really fast.

Elsie: What!?!? I score JUST LOW!? The glouteaux I raise are more dangerous than that!
Me: Indeed.
Elsie: Wh...!? Come here, you! I'll show you how dangerous I am!
Me: *Runs away really fast*
Elsie: Crap.

Irma... well, you'd never see Irma coming, and she can give you the fairy treatment. Despite she doesn't have the whole slew of powers a fairy has, you'd never see it coming when she ate you... Unless you were a voraphile and the only thing you knew about Felarya was that there was vore. She scores Medium: despite lacking most of a fairy's choices, she can strike so effin unexpected you'd think she practiced it.

So, just how dangerous our characters are?

Hmm...

Aisu: Medium
-If he interacts with you, odds are you're in one of his plots to feed Ruby.

Ruby: High
-She's a giant naga who really doesn't take much time to down her prey.


Aisu and Ruby as a Duo: Very High
-With Aisu's brain and Ruby's size, the two complement each other very well.

It's hard to say for my characters. My main three are best when working in tandem. However, to the average human, they're the opposite of a threat... they're saviors! So, i guess "Very Low", to the average human.

But, considering for a moment we're just going by lethality... seperately: it would depend on the type of opponent. Zion is a jack-of-all-trades whose main strength is his intelligence and adaptability, Kenson is a skilled hand-to-hand combatant and can use techniques that allow him to bust through thick armor, and Leif is a very powerful psychic with limited talent in telekinesis, though his strength is in telepathy, teleportation, and mind-manipulation.

However, Leif's telepathic prowess opens up the door to the "Battle Tandem", a term Zion dubbed for when all three are linked in mind and spirit. They can communicate without speaking and even other psychics would have trouble intercepting their telepathy, Kenson gains teleportation because Leif's consciousness serves as a beacon to guide him through the folds of space-time (like a Navigator or the Astronomicum), and Zion can draw huge amounts of power through the link Leif has with the astral plane. Though it seems Leif's doing all the work, the true effectiveness comes from the synchronization of all three fighters, allowing Zion to execute flawless strategies using their individual talents. Leif also gains some better control over his astral link, due to the counterbalancing forces of the others' psyches.

So: seperately, they all might rate in the topmost echelons of Medium (possibly High), but together... well, it would take a very tough predator to defeat them. Probably Very High to Critical.

EDIT: I don't really know how to rank the Jurdeans. I plan on stating in my story that Cephas is able to best Kenson at close combat, and with his juggernaut-like strength and endurance, he'd probably be a low High. He's been known to beat down a giant pantaur by himself... though he broke his arm in the process. Of course, Cephas is exceptional, even among Jurdeans. Most of them would be Moderate to Medium, by then again, even if they don't have the Battle Tandem, they still use teamwork...

Low ranking for most of my characters, because half of them are dumber than a sack of bricks. ._. *looks at Anchorus*

Well, to start...

Grip: I'd have to say, as much as I like him, probably Low. Of course, this depends on his equipment - if he has the right tools for the job and gets time to plan he'd could maybe be Moderate.

Fenja: High. She's one of the great predators, like it says in the wiki.

Fenja with Grip and Sphere: Very High. Technically so. They did once take on a small army, so, yeah.

Some other folk..

Dylan: This one is really hard. Normally he'd come off as Low. He's pretty laid back, no real advanced weaponry. However, there is serious implications that there is much more to him than meets the eye. Everyone threatening him seems to die via oceanic disaster or predator. Still, as long as you leave him alone, you're probably safer with him.

Cashera: High. Not really a cunning hunter, or that memorable of a character even. But she's tough and big.

Khrixi: Medium Yeah, she's a predator and she could be something like Very High if she tried. She's too emotional though and easily tricked or swayed.

Ofelia: She really depends on how smart you are. To someone with no knowledge of Felarya, or no knowledge of her species, she's a High, but most predators would be. Due to her being avoidable if you're being careful I'd rank her even a Moderate. Still, if you are caught by her, you are pretty much screwed.

----

And the new folk.

Shillou: Low. Could conceivably be a problem but doesn't have enough of a killer instinct or fighting skills.

Fulmina: Medium. Though just an elf I'd call her predatory and dangerous...

Well let's see... my characters...

Lissa is a giant naga and is a common predator of humans so she ranks as high. High

Tyler is a human mage so obviously he ranks low unless you've done something wrong in which case his ranking changes to high. Low or High

Benjamin is a neko so he too ranks low. Low

Lucy is a fairy but doesn't eat anything with a concience and may actually help those in trouble. She ranks low. Low

And those are about all my characters that are currently known to the public.

Very Low to Moderate, depending on who's writing them, how effective they consider certain things, which character in question, etcetera.

For instance, Wes'li would probably qualify as a middle-to-upper Moderate Character in all but grossly inept portrayals. He's an aging Wizard who is currently occupying the body of a Clay Golem. While he wouldn't exactly be much of a threat to a Giant Predator - without some very good spell combinations or decent planning time, anyways - most man-sized beings are going to be sorely pressed to deal with his Golem-ness. After all, how many factions are equipped to deal with someone who's essentially immune to most of the magic they'll fling at him, can fling his own right on back, will probably ignore most physical attacks, and is strong enough to rend their bodyguards limb from limb?

However, read what I said above: It depends on who's writing, what they consider effective, etcetera. For some people, a Great White would be infinitely more dangerous as - while weaker - they suffer much less penalties while in the water. Similarly, depending on how some people write Giant Predators he'd be unable to kill one even with prep-time, prepared spells, and attacking them while they're asleep / their guard's down. It depends on the author.

Practically every other character I have written is Low, with the potential to be Moderate or Very Low. They're all baseline capabilities - none super-human - with medieval weapons that only a portion of which are enchanted.

How can they amount to anything, then, especially by being adventurers? Simple: They're competent. Without competence, yeah, they die horribly against the first thing they come across. But they travel using camouflage. They'll use magical enchantments to throw off Scrying / Predator-sense. They attack from afar and make the enemy close in, not the other way around. When adventuring in ruins, they constantly search for traps with both magical and mundane means as well as making sure not to isolate themselves to be picked off one at a time. They standardize equipment. They will run / parley / surrender if the situation calls for it. They will hire guides and listen when they give warning that their magic bows won't harm something. And so on, and so on.

Furthermore, they will change their equipment / tactics depending on what they expect to come across and where. They aren't going to be bringing handcannons during a bodyguard job, and they won't be bringing small throwing knives if they have to hunt down a large-game like a rabid Kensha Beast. They tend to bring a wizard with every group, modifying the number depending on how much magic may help / work in an area and what type of spells they'll cast on who. They won't walk down a jungle path just like they would a crowded market street, they practice noise-discipline while walking through the jungle, they'll often carry some emergency potions with them, etcetera.

Basically: They're an adventuring party that isn't green behind the ears - mostly because those who were died or picked less dangerous jobs. If they have to go someplace they know nothing about, they'll ask for information. They won't just wander any path they see in the jungle. They don't make a camp with thirteen fires for ten people, and then start shouting to each other over five minutes about which sticks will be good to gather and throw in.

Right now, they're basically constrained to RP's as I haven't been able to get myself to start working on a story. If I ever get around to writing a story, I intend to show practically all sides - on average - as competent. Predators will use magic to aid in their hunting, as well as simple tools when necessary to draw out prey. Prey doesn't just wander boasting loudly until some Giant Predator shows up, then pull a mix of running around like a chicken with its head cut off / firing one foot arrows at an eighty foot tall creature and gape when doing no harm. Towns will be protected in the wild by using crafty illusions. Predator tribes / civilizations will exist, and for some of them (such as Dridders) be shown as pretty advanced [compared to their peers] with metallurgy and the like.

But, as I stated at the start, that's my writing. Things are being made competent and recognizing their potential, so that boosts them up on the chart. If someone else wrote with the characters, they could very well have said party run around like a bunch of fools. Or write them with equipment / powers they'd never have, turning a party of regular humans into a bunch of Krillins.

Better than most magicks or big guns. And this is coming from a guy who loves big guns.

See, I know what you mean by competence. Zion and Co. aren't experienced in the ways of Felarya, so even though Zion is a super-genius, they're bound to make mistakes. The Jurdeans, however, have survivied in Felarya for centuries, possibly millennia.

I think that's the sign of a good writer: when you can turn normal people into effective characters without resorting to super-powers. I can't say I always do that...

Actually, I have no stated danger level for my characters. There are many factors that influence in such danger level. Not all situations will make Nanda a medium-to-low-level threat, for example, nor everytime Kyria is in high level nor Seelvee isn't as dangerous as other dryads.

So that's right: I have no actual threat level for any of my characters. Razz

Not quite.

"It's based on the threat that the creature represents for a normal human. It's not necessarily linked to the strength of the creature. For example the dryad Cypress would rank very low because she is very friendly to humans, yet she is a powerful being."

So, for some of my characters, let's see...

Nerezza (Giant dridder): High

Ariol (Giant slug-girl): High

Monty (Giant naga): Low

Cynthia (Felaryan fairy): High

Mantis (Felaryan fairy/neera): Very Low

Vil'Tyna (Nemesis): Medium

How dangerous are my current characters... With added commentary in between.

I'd rank Boris somewhere between Low and Moderate. He has a little military training, so that adds to his danger, however he isn't very bright, so he's more of a danger to himself.
Boris: Hey! I can defend myself out there.
Me: Not against something that has fingernails bigger than you are.
Boris: ...Maybe I should stay indoors.

Poe would definitely fall somewhere around Medium. If he ever finds himself in a bit of trouble, he just has to read something out of one of the many books he has with him, or read it into the book. Besides, he stays in the Library at all times, so chances are he'd have to go looking for trouble before he got in any.
Boris: HEY! You gave bookworm here a more in-depth explanation than you gave me!
Poe: How DARE you call me a Bookwyrm?! Those vile, book eating parasites are nothing like me! Besides, I wouldn't consider myself dangerous... Just the books I read should be of your concern.
Me: Shut up, the both of you, or kiss the light of day goodbye forever and say hello to a new character I thought up the other day.
Poe: *ahem* You mean, the character I read from their universe the other day.
Me: *evil look at Poe*
Poe: I get the picture. Just talk about him before I do.
Boris: Oi vey...

The last character of mine, as noted above, I thought up the other day. I'm still fleshing him out, and he's the first character I'm actually drawing. Don't expect a Picasso portrait of him, but it will be the first of his kind I've ever attempted to draw in my years of life.

Poe: I think you are highly capable of a Picasso picture of the fellow.
Me: Thanks Poe!
Poe: However, a da Vinci version would be a MUCH better sight for the public here.
Me: Poe...
Poe: Of course, Picasso works just fine!
Me: Anyways...

This new guy (No name for him yet) is a Minotaur, and as I said, I've never drawn one before. However, it is my quest to draw him before I continue work on him. He has two personalities that he has total control over, and different danger levels for each. His usual danger level is Very Low, and his other danger level is somewhere around High. It takes quite a bit to coax him into that danger level.

?????: I say, it sounds as if you are calling me a gentleman.
Me: Well, unlike SOME people I know... *glance at Poe* you haven't given me reason to refer to you otherwise.
Poe: Hey, don't speak like I'm not here. I could very well "Accidentally" spoil the story and tell everyone that you plan to make this man my...
Boris: *hand over Poe's mouth* That's enough out of you.
Me: Thank you Boris.

Milly (giantess): Medium. She's a giant predator and feeds on humans, but she lacks some of the hunting senses possessed by predators such as giant nagas. Still, she catches enough humans to keep herself well fed.

Jissy (giant naga): High

Joanna and Tina (tomthumbs): Minimal. Tina has a sharp tongue when she's angry, but that's her only way of "hurting" you. (Apart from calling to Milly for help, if you threaten her.)

Isham and Roshan (humans): Very Low. Will defend themselves if attacked, but pose no threat to harmless humans. Isham will try to talk giant predators out of eating you. Roshan... won't, but at least he won't lead them to you.

Lucilya (fairy): High. Arguably my most voracious character. And quite a sneaky huntress. She may shrink you and eat you while you sleep.

Vuni and Tiasha (small slug girls): Very Low (for humans). They may have quite an appetite, but you're only at risk if you're a tiny.

Ajab (giant naga (male)): High

Canni, Shaan and Happy (giant dridder, small naga, and dryad): Very Low They're there to help you, not harm you.

Shelny (dryad): Very Low. She's a vegetarian. But she'll defend herself if attacked.

Enita (fairy): High to Very Low. Depends when you meet her. If you come across her before meeting Shelny, you're likely to end up as her meal. But if you've befriended Shelny, Enita will no longer view you as acceptable prey.

Elaya (human): Moderate. She obviously won't eat you herself, but if she has a hungry fairy friend close by, she may introduce you as her friend's lunch...

Selima (small naga ghost): Very Low. Probably. But don't annoy her. You never know what a ghost might be capable of.

And because you said 'as a giant naga and would thus automatically rank as high' I felt it was needed to point out that the scale doesn't count by race or size for characters, only that specific character's threat to humans. If you had said 'Because my character is a common predator of humans' I wouldn't have said anything about it.

These rankings are based on the assumption that the character in question actually wanted to hurt you; they're generally nice people, and thus harmless. Thankfully for them they don't live on Felarya (but their job does often require that they spend a little time there every so often), so it's okay that they can't fight off giant preds.


William Savenhill (human): Low-Moderate. Being a guard on merchant ships has given him a good deal of experience in fighting people.

Iberis of the Hedera tribe (human sized naga): Moderate. 750 lbs of warrior race naga make her more dangerous than her small size would suggest.

Lilio of the Ixora tribe (young human sized naga): Minimal-Very Low. A warrior race naga child with no combat experience what so ever, even 250 lbs of such a child, is about as threatening as a kitten in a wet paper bag. Smile

Lawrence Frostern (young human): Minimal. A no-combat experience human child is even less threatening than a kitten in a wet paper bag.

Alyssa of the Olidus tribe (young Felaryan catgirl): Low-Moderate. Growing up on Felarya is hard, and combined with magics that enhance strength and speed mean that she's far more dangerous than she looks.

Ira Schidia (young demon): Low. Unpracticed and undeveloped natural demonic powers and sociopathic tendencies are not really all that threatening.




And now the boss-villain and "Wise Old Wizzard"(tm) (also probably the most likely of my characters to get seriously remade...):
"Johnathan" (human): High. Centuries of study have given him a mastery over all sorts of very dangerous magic... magic that is of very little use when attending to the business of running a city.

Messor Viridis (demon): High-Very High. One does not become a demon lord of Hell, with hundreds of followers, by being weak. On the other hand, one cannot stay a demon lord of Hell if one uses their power carelessly...

Choto (genetic construct resembling a Neko): Very Low mostly, some times higher. A Choto is a pleasant Maid lost in the woods looking for her master, in this mode she is harmless and likely has a short lifespan, there is however more than one Choto. If a Choto manages to find a new master and bonds with is however she will do her up most to take care of and protect her master, and she has some surprising abilities, in this case her danger rating can go up.

Derek (human-genetically altered): Low to Moderate. Derek wont eat any one, but he has a wife to keep happy, still a mad Derek or threatened Derek is a dangerous Derek. The biggest threat about Derek is that he has a few dangerous predator friends, including 2 fairies, 1 giant naga, 1 giant dridder, and 1 dryad, so approaching him might get you eaten buy one of them and Derek generally doesn't disrupt their hunting.

Neia (human sized naga, occasionally human): Low. In the past Neia HAS eaten a few elves and maby a neko or so long ago, but she gave that up long ago, Neia is far more likely to save you, for a modest fee, than eat you. Neia walks a dangerous line and would much rather be seen as a boon to have around than a danger that needs to be skinned. Neia pays the bills via humans and the like, eating them is just bad for business, though if you try to kill her, what happens is your own fault. It should be noted when her curse kicks in and she becomes human she pretty much incapable of eating you.

Soinee (canopy fairy): Moderate to High. Soinee might be considered low but its hard to judge with Soinee, her personality is complex and seemingly picky eater. One of the things influencing this is one of the intelligent things she eats the least is humans, though she will and has done it she is trying (with minimal success at best) to build a friendlier reputation with the people of Negav for reasons of her own. On the other hand things like Naga and other fairies are likely to be seen as food right off the bat.

Tengie (giant pantaur cub): Very Low. Tengie is still a kid, though on the verge of his growth to a giant predator, human raised and extraordinarily responsible for a child Tengie is naturally protective of those in the area he has been raise with, this includes the neera that cut a deal with the man who has raised him (Nadiel). In the end he has yet to eat ANY one and is starting to wonder if he even can and is starting to worry about starving once he grows older.

Utsu (Willow Dryad): Low. Utsu is human sized and often disguises her self as such, and is surpassingly mobile at times for a dryad, her diet is pretty targeted and humans are not on it, though she is a skilled fairy hunter, as in she eats them. Still while she is basically no threat to humans she has been alive for a long time and has many surprises, but is far more likely to be of help to some one than a danger.

annnnd my characters!

Terror:(demonic hybrid) low Terror is very unvoracious, this is credited to her skill of feeding off magical energy's makes her near harmless to humans. Also even in times when she is running low on magic reserves she'll always choose nonsentient creatures as prey insted of sentient ones due to her personal morals.

Violet moderate A fairly safe and easy for humans to befriend giant Dridder, She does still eat the occastional humanoid prey but is far more likely to pick out a nonsentient prey source or fruit or possibly befriend that would be food source.

Erica low tohigh She sees all bite sized things, sentient or nonsentient as prey and running into her means certain death. UNLESS of course you identify yourself as a friend of Violets then there is no chance of Erica eatting you and she will possibly even defend you from other predators.

Jas very low A giant mershark riddled with nasty looking scars mixed with a mouth full of giant blade like teeth wouldn't make you automaticaly think she's harmless but far as humans goes she's downright friendly. She doesn't see anything that doesn't even come up to her waist (when propped upright on her tail)) as a suitable meal, and Greatly dislikes the feeling of live prey in her stomach, it makes her sick so she sees humans and smaller humanoids as people.


((I have more characters but these are my main ones and the ones I have fleshed out most thus far))

hmmm. my first character "Verira" would rank from moderate to very high. she is usually not that great a hunter, and never developed her predatory sense, but don't make her too scared or too angry , cause that willl most likely get you killed if you don't know what to do.

then theres the skitzo neko, hmmm... "Wal" would be very low normally, but if you have something sweet and you won't share it or stole something sweet from her... very high. "Tazlye" would be medium. and "issuz" would be moderate.

and my latest(posted character^^) "Yuurei" would normally be very low since he would mostly never start a fight, but should you start a fight with him, that he can't run away from, he would be moderate to medium depending on what he has absorbed and if you're very unlucky that he absorbed some thing really bad, he could be high

Here I go with mine.

Kaiten (Giant naga (male)): Very low. Practically non-existent. He won't eat humans or anything that even remotely looks human. The very thought of doing so makes the cowa feel sick to his stomach.

Sheska (Giant dridder(female)): Low to Moderate. She WILL eat humanoid prey, but prefers to feed on animals as well as creatures much larger than human sized and to eat them the good old fashioned dridder way. Also, she's pretty damn lazy when it comes to hunting. Since she finds humans fascinating, you can easily save yourself just by telling her of your culture and other things like that.

Dwayne (Giant dridder(male)): Low to Moderate. basically, he eats the same way as Sheska. Albeit, he DOES have a taste for nagas over some other animals.

Tesla (Geckotta(female)): Moderate to High. no species is really off of her menu. If she's hungry, and she finds something edible, she'll eat it. Other then that though, she won't really eat unless she's hungry or bored.

Merle (Gypsa): Moderate to High. She's playfully cruel, and will actively hunt other creatures, regardless of what they are, just for fun. She isn't above picking fights with predators as big as her either.

Shienne (Demon(female)): Moderate. She's a shapeshifter, so she's more likely to play pranks then eat people. However, when hungry, she will go after people. She has a taste for fairies though.

Jessica (Human(female)): Low. Jessica is just your average human mercenary. People and most others are safe from her. Unless it's a matter of self defense.

Rojer (Sphinx(male)): Low to Moderate. He will eat humans if he should be hungry, but he prefers animals since they're more filling. He'd leave mmost folks alone unless they attacked him.

Judas (Human sized naga(male)): Very low to low. He's more likely to help people in exchange for some shiny valuables. He feeds off of snakes, nagas, fruit, and other animals rather then people. After all, why get a bad reputation among those who can give you what you want? Although, should someone attack him, he will retliate with the venom in his fangs, which is more then capable of killing someone human sized pretty quickly.

Lets see here...

Myrah: Giant dridder
Low
By and large, Myrah has given up eating humans, elves, and nekos in favor of her cooking, which she considers better than 'raw' humans. Even if she does get in the mood for humans, If said human is clever, inventive, interesting, or entertaining enough, or is good with cooking, she often makes due with just a good taste test, and lets them go afterward. Furthermore, since adopting a few human children she doesn't eat anyone in front of them. However, threaten or harm any of her adopted children, and her threat rating will jump to Very High.

Lenarei: River Harpy
Moderate
Because of of a promise made to a human friend, she doesn't eat anyone anymore. Or so she claims. She is constantly trying to make exceptions, and if Trav isn't around to stop her, god help you if she makes an exception for you. Additionally, her promise to Trav just covers not EATING anyone, but she notes leaves other methods of killing open. If you give her cause, she will rip you a dozen new ones on the spot, and ask Trav's pardon later.

Trav: Human wanderer
Minimal
Trav is a harmless human wanderer, who lives and let lives. He has never taken a life before, and raises his fist only in the most extreme of situations. He carries a sword, but doesn't know how to use it at all. In fact, his best defense against predators is his skill in music, which is extremely good. Often he can charm a predator into letting him go, or fascinate them long enough for Lenarei to arrive and protect him.

Crystal: Water elemental
Medium
Crystal has had her share of human meals, though she doesn't eat for only nutrition. She keeps the minds of her prey with her for company, and thinks she's doing her prey a favor, since they can't be digested by anyone else as part of a water elemental. Over time, she has made a hive mind for herself, and can draw on the skills of the other minds with her, making her even more efficient and dangerous as a predator.

Dr. Thomas Coronan: Human doctor
Very low
Thomas's skill is in medicine and surgery, not in combat. He maintians a medical outpost, and treats prey and predator alike, hoping to make his outpost a neutral ground of sorts (Though that's largely enforced by his dryad friend). Still, given the technology he uses, he's by no means defenseless. But even so, he seeks to spare anyone he's fighting against, and often just sedates them in some way with medicines he keeps on his person rather than kill them.

Mathias: Neera electrician.
Low
A neera that lives at Thomas' outpost, who has been enjoying life ever since arriving. He is a self taught electician, who uses his small size to his advantage, scurrying about where humans can't reach. Also, his tools of the trade are often used in self defense. He has made a habit of carrying around a micro-fusion generator, so he can zap any hungry nekos into next Tuesday.

Anticlea: Holographic AI
Moderate
An AI that accompanied Thomas when he founded his outpost. Though she appears like a silver haired neko, and feels like one thanks to 'false matter' technology, she is actually much stronger, agile, and intellegent than one. Though she came with to handle the more technical aspects of the outpost, she has found herself more and more frequently assuming the role of 'bodyguard', and has found she is good at it as well.

Alerce: Dryad
Low
A powerful dryad bound to Thomas, and one of his first patients. Given her mental link with him, she can't eat humans without feeling Thomas' horror over the senseless deaths. Fortunately, the doctor provided an alternative by bringing in a couple yeast farm units, and keeps her fed with a supply of fresh synthetic fish, pork, beef, and chicken. In exchange, she uses her powers of illusion and mental abilities to keep the outpost hidden from unfriendly eyes. Still, if she must, she can defend the outpost physically if needed.

What the hell, I'll join too!

Ciel: Giant Dridder
High
She's not picky about what she eats and she doesn't really take the time to get to know her 'food' regardless of what it is...it's just food to her. If it's there and it's edible she will probably try to hunt it if she's hungry otherwise she will leave whoever or whatever it is alone. Of course there are exceptions but it is rather hard to fall into those, if her prey proves itself to be capable and resourceful enough to at least partially fend her off she will let it off the hook and find something else instead.

Liora: Mantoid
Medium to High
Her threat is a little lower than Ciel's, mostly because she goes for wildlife and larger prey before humanoids and the smaller variety if there is a choice. She's also a bit easier to escape than most other giant predators for humanoids as her hunting methods are crude and she isn't entirely used to hunting as most other mantoids do, she's a bit too impatient to stay in one spot for a good ambush. She is also surprisingly susceptible to flattery which is one way out of a bind with her too!

Goro: Treant
Minimal
As grumpy as he can be, he doesn't hurt any sentient life if he can avoid it at all. He is very content just being a big tree and taking the company when it stops by and sleeping a lot. He will even give shelter to people freely that stop by and Liora won't touch them either if he tells her to. Being a giant tree dwarving most giant predators also has an advantage that most sane people don't try to attack him to begin with.

I'll give it a shot...

Robin (Human)/ Squiggles (Species Unknown): Very Low

He's a nice enough guy who isn't exceptionally bright. And Squiggles is more beneficial than anything, so all he could concievably do to you is punch you or run away.

Gen (Human): Very Low

He's not smart, not as strong as Robin, and generally wouldn't hurt you.

Jack (Human): Moderate

He gets a higher rating because he CAN hurt you... and has kind of a small fuse. He's not as strong as Robin, but he has a great knowledge of biology and even more so, he is a schemer. A really, really good one.

Jimmy (Strange Human): Low

He's very strong and somewhat easily angered, but he's well-raised enough that he generally won't hurt people-as long as they don't cross him.

Kenneth (Human): Very Low

He breathes fire, but he's docile to the point of being a complete doormat. Rare enough among pyromancers, it is nearly impossible to get this fellow mad enough to strike out at you.

Ardy (Human...?): Low to High

Probably the most dangerous of my characters at the age of 8, Ardy is one of those people you should generally try to avoid. He means nobody any ill will, and if he did, his memory span would run out on his anger in a matter of minutes. Actually, as long as he's wearing full-body clothes, he's Low... but without them, that's the problem. His skin exudes an extremely toxic miasma that can kill anything he gets within 20 feet of in minutes. The clothes stifle his poison, and Jimmy takes good care to keep him in a hoody, long pants, boots, and gloves at all times, but when Jimmy's not around to remind him, plants, animals and people wilt where he walks.

Min (Slug Girl): Low

Yeah, she's big and a predator. She's also the single dumbest slug girl you'll ever meet. How the hell she survived to her current age is a mystery. Min doesn't recognise that refusing to do something she's asked to is a valid option- she'd gladly eat you, but if you so much as scream "PUT ME DOWN!", she'll make a sad face, put you down, and continue foraging. Again, she's dumb as bricks.
