Second of three in a mini-project.
This is basically a look at how the Dan Clan and Retsubnad have their own teams in their world, both on opposite sides but with a common role for their personnel.


Frederick might technically be the advisor of the Dan Clan - a sturdy but gentle and patient ferret, he often has to be the "voice of reason" that tempers Danbuster's goofy nature. As such, he is a valuable asset to the team.

Thoronraw, like his Master, has suffered much in his past - however, he is a proud beast as well as quietly-spoken and peaceful. The young-adult gryphon often acts as a moral restraint when Retsy threatens to overstep the mark.

Fredrick is cute and that's all that matters when it comes to advice.

I say, Frederick is probably my favourite of the Dan Clan characters, and I'm weak for gryphon's too (even green ones) - awesome picture!

Heh, heh... they would certainly be seen sharing a pot of tea over spectating a fight between the hare-brothers and talking about how they put up with them! :XD:

Frederick: This is what I have to put up with all the time, matey!
Thoronraw: They're crazy, Mr Wilkinson! Utterly crazy!
Frederick: Aye, they're weirdos... but they mean well.
Thoronraw: That's true. At least they're have their good points.

Frederick and Thoronaw could be in one team without having any conflicts between themselves. :)

They're probably the two that have no conflict with anybody... :XD:
The only time their "berserk buttons" might get pressed is if some fool attacked their friends!

Lean and green, thats what make them the moral machines! I like how the two are staring at each other as if engaging in a duel of the minds in a mental showdown here. I like it ^^

You did a great job here!

Heh, heh... the meeting of two great minds, indeed! :giggle:
They're certainly quite a well-matched pair, when it comes to discussing party-politics! ;)

Thanks very much, Alex! :aww:

At least they can come home, have a cuppa and then get thier heads/ears scratched gently by the loving paw of Willow or Retsy =3

Eliza: Actually, this is how you do it. Just stroke and pet, dig your claws gently into the fur and plummage, like so

Alex: Oh I see!

Aww who could hurt such a warm and distinguished looking gryphon! Also, on a fun note: Thoronraw looks like he may be contemplating lunch ;)

Well, greedy humans hoping to exploit him for a quick buck would... :(
But at least Retsubnad punished them scar for scar when he rescued the gryphon - and a chain-lightning whip is no fun to get lashed with! :mwahaha:

It's true enough that, if he wanted to, Thoronraw could probably eat Frederick for breakfast... luckily, Marquila can outmatch him, at least! :XD:
Likely as not, it would be a case of Fred and Thor'n drinking tea and discussing Danbuster and Retsubnad while watching them duke it out! ;)
