Basics: Were-hyenas are a Matriarchal society and thus, have no King. Were-hyena society is one of the rougher and more violent of shapeshifter societies. In being Matriarchal society, the higher up in dominance the males are, the more likely they are mates to the leader. This is how the males establish their natural order of the ranks through violence and contention for the Queen’s favor. Hyenas have a mid-range rate of infection.
Bond: For Hyena one of the hardest acts is to bond to one another. As they have some form of psychic attachment to the other, Hyena must while in their Shifter forms, touch at the forehead to secure a bond. This trust between the two opens the connections to feel the other. When an Oba has arrived, she can open that bond without touch to link them all by mind. It should be noted that the touch by forehead must be to every hyena that wishes to bond, and not a one time thing.
Oba – Queen
Umkhosi – Second in Command
