The world of Beastars is one where animals must fight to survive. Despite living together in relative peace in a Japanese inspired modern society; the people are dived among PREDATORS and PREY.

Predators are stronger and more aggressive, but crave flesh. Their diets are supplemented with high protein foods, but even still many have the urge to prey upon their fellow citizens. Many will rely on meat sold from the illegal black market, which is an open secret.

Prey are more social, and well connected. Special opportunities exist for herbivorous animals, like prey only trains and housing, which act as defenses against predators. While considered weaker then predators as a rule, some are capable of impressive feats through both training and sheer tenacity. Their biggest strength is that everyone underestimates them.

While these animal types are further divided into species, this is the most important distinction among animal kind.

So which one are you?

>Prey

You are a PREDATOR. Physically stronger but distrusted, and living in a constant mental battle. You had to grow up learning to control yourself from a young age, and many prey animals gave you sidelong glances which you had to adapt to. The biggest challenge of a predator, beyond this mental one, is to find the proper nutrition for yourself if you wished to train intensely. The burden of strength is yours.

While it is possible for hybrids between species to exist, most couples are of two pure species- as pure breed couples receive extra help from the government.

So the question is; what KIND of Predator are you?

I feel like somethign that hasn't been done yet would work...

I don't know, does anyone have an idea? Komodo Dragon? Jaguar? Are there bird people?

I don't really read this manga, but i think it's an interesting idea for a quest, i suppose.

Komodo is the MC's grandpappy
Lots of big cats and birds to. Grandpappy beats the shit out of a bird gang att one point

>>4544020
Alright, so what kind of animal would be interesting then? Something that doesn't pop up in the manga.

I don't know, Harpy Eagle? I don't really watch so i can't say. All i think is that something new is always going to be more interesitng.

Your name is KUCHI the Spotted Hyena. You are a male Hyena. You are above average in height, and are considered a powerful (and dangerous) large bodied carnivore- even if a female of your type is a little bigger then you are.

You are a 20 something with little to no education or special skills. After you graduated, you floated along until a group of your friends took you out somewhere on a "fun" trip. It was only once you got there did you realize you were actually going to the meat market.

The smell is incredible. You've never eaten meat before, just bug burgers and egg sandwichs, and the thought is delectable; very tempting. You know it's almost like a drug, but have no way of knowing the taste unless you try it. Your friend, Kiyomi, another spotted hyena, pulls you aside.

"Oi, Kuchi! Look at that leg of Gazelle meat there! If we pool our money together we can try it. What do you say?"

It looks (and smells) really tempting.
>Give in and help buy the meat
>Refuse the meat
>Other?
>>
>>4544131
>Give in and help buy the meat
It's already dead, no need to waste it.
>>
>>4544131
>Give in and help buy the meat
You're in your experimentation phase. It's not like you can't stop if you don't like it.
>>
>>4544131
>ask who the leg belonged to, you're a foodie and don't want to eat a drug addict or something for your first taste of meat
>>
>>4544131
>>Give in and help buy the meat
>>
You and Kiyomi split the bill. She buys the meat and takes a bite from the leg first of course. It is tradition to at least know the animal from which you are eating, and clearly, she likes Gazelle.

"Here!" She says, holding the chunk out to you. You feel a pit in your stomach at your dislike of this idea, but you might as well try it.

....!

Taking a bite of the bloody meat chunk, you feel electric fire flow down your throat. It tastes amazing! You feel alive! Is this what being meat drunk feels like? You feel a feral energy flow through you; Kiyomi looks more attractive to you now, your skin is flushed, your coat is shinier, everything is great! At the same time though, you feel a lot more aggressive; you briefly consider trying to steal away the leg from Kiyomi, but since she's a hyena too and bigger then you that urge doesn't come up more then a flash. Your heightened senses also feel something else coming closer as well.

"Hey YOU!"
The voice belongs to a lion. He's tall, and wearing a suit and tie. He gives off a dangerous vibe. Kiyomi's eyes go wide.

"Shishigumi! Run!" She turns on her heel and drops the meat right on the ground, and starts running into an alley.
>Follow Kiyomi
>Run away in a different direction
>Grab the meat
>Fight the Shishigumi thug
>Other?

Greatly overestimated sketching time. I'll refrain from it in the future, unless I have more prep.
>>
>>4544176
FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT

If we're clever enough, we at least won't lose. Being humanoid, we can take advantage of the weakness present in such form that would not usually exist in an lion.
>>
>>4544176
No way, OP, the sketching is great! Plus the more you do it, the faster you'll get! Please continue. Onegaishimasu!

>other
What does Kuchi know about the Shishigumi? When you 'gives off a dangerous vibe' do you mean he's just standing there, menacingly, or that his body language looks ready for the attack?
>pick up the meat and look at the gangster to see if he's after you or something, but get ready to run
>>
>>4544189
Oh yeah, and also, I forgot to add, we've got da real meat powers. That gives us a better chance and a bigger reason. Let's attack his weak points.
>>
>>4544176
Kiyomi a cute.
> Try to scare the lion away but run if he isn't intimidated
>>
>>4544192
Seconding since obvious plot hook event trigger boiii.
>>
You stand your ground instead of running. The lion looks you up and down.

"Oh, so you're gonna fight me huh?" He says, rolling out his tongue in a mocking way. His attitude is almost playful, but you can tell he's been a lot of fights before. As for you... not so much.

"My name is Free of the Shishigumi lions. The Shishigumi got a policy right now- No Hyenas like you in the Back Alley Market! We don't want you stinking up the place. Your girlfriend had the right idea." He says, before widening his stance. He keeps his hands in his pockets, standing there almost like he's giving you the first blow.

>Bite him
>Punch him
>Kick him
>Tackle him?
>Or actually run away?
>>
>>4544208
>beastars is Japan basically, and free just introduced himself
Introduce yourself back. Feeling the rush of the meat giving you a bigger pair of bollocks, playfully sniff under your arm to tell him you don't stink so bad. Ask him what the real reason is.
>>
>>4544203
She's certainly nice, especially for a female hyena, but y'know...female hyena.
>>4544208
It would be wiser to start with an faux advance...that is, advance while waiting for a move - if we are able to make one without him attacking first, we sweep his legs - they look skinny as hell. Followed immediately by an stomp.
>>
>>4544218
We're also a hyena, nothing wrong with that. What do you want to do? Make disgusting hybrids?

With your meat infused strength and natural aggression, you decide you're going to fight him. Lions fighting Hyenas; how predictable.

You approach with your eyes almost seeing red. You're surprised at how much stronger you think this meat is making you; but since Free isn't a herbivore, you don't quite have the same "killer instinct" as you might around smaller herbivore people. But still, you get closer and think about waiting for him to make the first move...

...No, you can't wait any longer. You're too hopped up on meat and feral aggression. The moment this guy threatened you, you felt your anger rising. You will show him your fury! Not sure what to do with your hands, you think it would be best to kick him in the legs and punch him on the way down! You run closer and move in to make a kick-

Free sidesteps your kick with a practiced grace. His smug smile never leaves him, and his right hand rockets from his pocket, slamming you on the side of the head. The motion was so hard and fast, it barely felt like it hurt until you hit the ground.

Crumpled up, you know you already lost badly. You stands over you with a cocky grin.

"Get lost, kid. Before you really get hurt." He says, only letting you leave right back out of the market.

Once the smell of the meat market and your own natural high wears down, you run into Kiyomi again.

"I saw you try to fight that lion. That was really brave." She said, patting you on the back. She takes out a tissue and presses it to your bruise, a small amount of blood seeping through it from your dirtied fur.

"We'll have to wait until things cool down if we want meat again. Or we can give our money to some predator friends who aren't hyenas. Oh well, either way, we'll just have to go some time with less meat then normal..."

Damn, this really sucks. You can't press charges since the Shishigumii are untouchable criminals; and you aren't supposed to be in the meat market anyway- no laws are enforced there. You feel like your pride it hurt worst of all, and Kiyomi saw it all! Maybe she didn't expect much of you since you're just a male hyena- but she didn't offer to fight him either!

>Ask her why she didn't help
>Ask her about the Shishigumi

In minor retrospect it should be obvious a 20yo with no fighting experience shouldn't jump a lion who was already looking for trouble.
>>
>You ask Kiyomi about the Shishigumi.

"They're one of the main gangs that controls the back alley market. Their current leader is an old lion who hates Hyenas I think- he's a real creep. I heard he likes his meat raw, as in alive, and forces girl herbivores to strip for him so they taste better when he eats them." Kiyomi says. "I mean we eat meat too, but we eat them after they've already died. From funerals and hospitals- and herbivores who sell their meat willingly. That's not bad- it's just like recycling." She says sternly, looking at you as though beaming the thought directly in your head so you'll agree with her.

"It's been a problem for a while now but they never sent out patrols for it until now. But enough about that- I'd hate to see you get hurt." She says motherly, patting your blood spot again.

"Make sure not to go back to the market. If you have cravings just ask me and I'll help you get some," she says, her feminine dominance shining through. "I'll take care of it for you. Don't worry."

Even though Kiyomi is very nice, you can't help but feel awful about losing to that lion- your manhood's busted! Worse yet, you might be putting her in danger too. Maybe it's best just to sleep this off and let the meat craze die down yourself.

"Did I at least look cool?"
She shoots you a sad look.
"No."

You go home to cry yourself to sleep. Not literally, of course, but maybe a little bit. You spend the rest of the night feeling glum and eating a little bug cream from your freezer before bed...

Your name is Kochi. You are a spotted hyena, and you just lost your first fight yesterday against a lion. You check yourself out in your bathroom mirror.

You're tall, for a male hyena anyway, and are eye level with some of the females back in school. You always considered yourself relatively strong, though yesterday might have kicked some of that feeling out of you. You tentatively touch your face- its still sore. The wound has turned a bit black and blue from that powerful punch, though thankfully it missed your eye and might be a little easier to hide. Though you'll still need to bandage it.

Secondly, you feel your arms and legs. Against your naked form, you can feel your muscles. They are taut and strong, as any predator would have, but you feel like they're a bit hotter today then you remember- ever in your life really. Did the tiny bites of flesh you had awaken some strength within you? You certainly feel more energetic, more alive, though you are coming down from your meat high. You should stay away from herbivores for at least a good few days though.

Then you're called by someone. He's one of your best friends, Paimon. The Aardwolf.

"Hey dude! Mind if I come over?"
"Actually I-"
"Is your building's elevator broken? Don't they know how hard it is for small bodied carnivores to take the stairs?! I'm climbing up now. Open the door for me- my hands are full."
Sigh.

Without much choice, Paimon appears outside your front door and let him in your small, humble apartment. He hands you a sugary drink- a bug shake! He brought an extra one for you. What a pal. You let him inside and he sits as close to the center of the room as possible, like he wants to colonize all the space.

"Where are your clothes so baggy, Paimon?" You ask, he must have been borrowing clothes from your other hyena friends again. Cheap ass.
"Well I'm still growing you know so, don't want to invest too much!"

>Ask him if he knows about the fight from yesterday
>Ask him why he came here
>Ask him about the Back Alley Market
>Kick him out of your apartment and give you some peace
>Other?

>>
>>4544399
>Ask him why he came here
>>
>>4544411

>>
"Why did you come?" You ask him, taking a sip of your bug shake. You're glad to see your friend, but you fear the worst.

"Yeah- because I heard you got your ass kicked! Haha" Paimon responded. He knows he can only get away with it because he's so small.

"At least I tried!"
"No no, I'm just kidding. After all, lions are bigger then Hyenas anyway. You should be happy you're big as you are, think about how I feel."
You take a sip of your shake, unsure of what else to say. It's true, but size can't be everything.

"Can I say something without making you mad?" Paimon asked.
"What?"
"Why didn't you try to bite him? That's the only thing I don't get. Like you've got one of the strongest bite forces in the animal kingdom and yet you tried to... kick him? I guess you weren't thinking straight? I'm not trying to make fun of you, I swear, just curious. Maybe next time show that lion who is boss. Like this-"

Paimon stands up on the mat, doing a punch motion.
"Ha! Take this! Umm yeah!" He said, doing multiple punches. He pretended to bite an invisible arm in the air and grit his teeth while growling, before jumping into the air and tries to do a spinning kick before falling on his ass.

He picks his shake up and laughs with you as he sits down.

"I mean- to be honest Kochi, I wonder why you never got into fighting. You're not like the other spots." He said, slang for spotted hyeans like yourself.

>Ask him what do you mean
>Say you don't like fighting
>Say you'd rather get a good job then learn how to fight
>Insult him and say he only talks big because he's a small guy
>>
>>4544443

>>4544443
>Say you don't like fighting

>>4544443
I dont know what's going on the quest so far, but I'm here to fuck animals and degeneracy.
>>
"Well, you may not LIKE fighting-" Paimon concedes, "But you aren't like the other spots, like I said! You actually got the stomach for it, unlike them."

He shakes his head. "You have no idea how many of them I hear talking at the habitat centers. They go to the gym, but they only want a six pack so they can try to find a good woman. They play sports, but only as a way of giving their wives some space. It's pathetic! They're all whipped- they're basically like herbivores at this point. Their biggest aspirations seem to be a stay at home husband, or a salaryman with a good family. You've never been like that. You've actually got a pair."

He puts his hand up to his chin and scratches it with one finger, as though deep in thought.

"You know- that's why I was thinking you should date outside your species you know? Not like a herbivore chick or anything- but a Hyena, just not a spotted one. Get with a Striped Hyena chick. You'll love striped chicks, just like Aardwolves. You don't know how far down those stripes go until you take their clothes off, that's the fun part.~"

You splutter. You didn't expect him to say that, of all things.

"Well, I mean you MIGHT like them. After you tried to fight that lion to impress Kiyumi, I guess you must already be trying to get with her huh?"

>It wasn't like that at all! (You don't like Kiyumi)
>It wasn't like that at all! (You do like Kiyumi)
>It was the right thing to do.
>I'm not interested in females.
>Other?
>>
>>4544443
>>Ask him what do you mean
>>
>>4544546
>>It wasn't like that at all! (You don't like Kiyumi)
We see Kiyumi as a big sister. She's always been there for us. we might have had a small crush on her when we were kids, but that was just puppy love.
>>
>>4544546
>It wasn't like that at all! (You do like Kiyumi)
just because I think she's cute personally, mostly because you draw her kind of fluffy
>>
You try to explain away what Paimon said, not really yourself what motivated your actions, but he suddenly reaches down to his phone as he gets a text. Strangely, you feel your phone buzz at the same time- it must be the group chat you share with your all-hyena friend group.

"Woah, did you get this too?" Paimon suddenly asks. Before you can even check your phone yourself, you can see his hackles are raised up in apparent alarm.

"Oh my God, here's what they wrote. "Going to have a girl's night out- then somebody talked about meat and Kiyumi went berserk. She ran and now we're all scared. need help before she hurts someone!"

He looks up at you with a scared expression.

"What are we going to do?!"

------------

Hey all, that's going to end the game for tonight. Thanks for playing, this was quite a long session with all the drawing and all, as I didn't really think about doing drawings until after I started. Thanks for your patience. If you have any suggestions or questions about the game, please share, as I'll be lurking this thread unless it gets shoved off the board.

I'll be running another session of this on Monday at around 11 PM UTC or 3 PM Pacific. Thank you for playing.

>>4544577
Interesting quest so far.

I do hope Kuchi eventually goes /fit/ though, we know shit is going to go down so we might as well try to get strong enough to face 'Named Character' tier enemies.
>>
>>4544551
Also I agree with this, Kiyumi's nice but going that way sure wouldn't. Paimon's got a point too, Striped Hyenas are definitely a better choice if we don't want to fall in line like a normal spotted hyena.
>>
>>4544577
BEASTARS QUEST, FUCK YEAH!
Thanks OP, this is a dream come true and seems pretty interesting so far
>>
About eight hours left until the next part continues...i wonder what the hell happened to kiyumi and what will happen.

In the next serious fight we should try using our mouth, indeed. Spotted Hyenas have 1,100 psi of bite force apparently - that's even bigger than lions, apparently.

Honestly, Paimon seems to have some good advice, even if he doesn't seem like the kind of guy who does that.
>>
>>4544546
He is just describing male Hyenas they are the whipping boys of the whole genus that actually get naturally pegged
>>
>>4545993
I don't know if that's still true in this humanoid animal world, but i sure as hell don't want to find out. I'm inclined to believe it's not normal since i do remember there being an rabbit girl that had two normal tits. Also because there are female hyena like kiyumi who are actually nice instead of being naturally shitty.

Last time; You and your Aardwolf friend Paimon both received an emergency text with your friend group. Both of you leave your apartment and take a quick walk a few blocks away. There, you meet your friends outside their apartment building.

You see Sara, the brown Hyena, with her boyfriend Kemuri. She is holding her stomach and looks incredibly nervous. You also see Tora the striped hyena, and finally Masumi who is also a brown hyena. She looks rather angry.

"Why is it ALWAYS Kiyomi who has to do stuff like this? Spotted Hyena hormones." Masumi whines with no regards to you, clearly her night is ruined.

"Oh no... it's all my fault." Sara says. "We were just about to go out when Kiyomi arrived. I was just kidding around when I said we should find an egg cafe since we can't get any meat and then- well she just started to freak out! She ran off with this crazed look!" Kemuri rubs her shoulder in support.

"No no- it's not your fault! You couldn't have known this would happen." He says, his eyes clearly stressed as he takes another drag from his cigarette.

Tora looks at you. "Kuchi- you're the only other spotted hyena here, and Kiyomi liked you the best. If something has happened, you're the only one big enough to... well you know. We're scared of her." Tora admits, she's the smallest Hyena here, except for Paimon of course.

You don't have a cigarette! You could ask Kemuri for one but...

>>4546283
>>4546322
You ask where she went. Sara tells you that she ran down the street and down an alley. You give chase without waiting for the other Hyenas to follow you.

"...help..."

The words are very quiet, but you hear them just as you come down an alleyway. Your nose is assaulted by the smell of fresh blood- you're still meat drunk from yesterday! It makes your head woozy, but you press onward until you go around a corner.

There, you see the familiar form of Kiyomi. She's squatted down on the corner of an alleyway, just above a shaking creature. It looks like a female deer, who is bleeding from a serious wound in her neck. She looks up at you with saucer sized eyes.

"Oh no! Not another Hyena! Help!" She says, her voice warbled and bubbling from the blood- she's only a few inches away from having her throat torn out. Kiyomi spins her torso around, a train of blood down her chin and blood staining her teeth. You've never seen her look like this before; her eyes are murderous, almost mindless. Her throat buckles as she lets out a hoarse giggle- a sound of food competition.

From the way the doe is shaking; you can see she's almost dead. Her body looks delicious as well- you almost feel your mouth salivating at the thought of devouring her.

>>4546360
It's one thing to eat an part of an already dead animal who had no objections towards being used for meat after they died like some sort of organ donor+ , it's another thing to maul someone on the street
>Try to "reason" with kiyomi
Approach slowly while talking smoothly to see if it helps to see if she responds and so she doesn't attack us. If nothing happens...
>Physically restrain kiyomi
She's bigger, but that doesn't mean we can't restrain her - we can definitely do an neck lock, which would be impossibly more effective in an long head like the hyenas have.

Stronger or not, a neck lock would go beyond that.

By the way, by "try to reason" i mean in a way that we won't look threatening or something, if we act convincing enough we can approach her without her flipping out, and then an neck lock is easy.
>>
>>4546368
This. And shout for the deer to run as soon as we get her cc'd
>>
>>4546372
I don't know if she can, but she should at least try to crawl or move or something. We should probably also scream for help, i guess, once we lock her, cause even with a neck lock it's not easy to control an rampaging hyena.

On the other hand, at least we won't have to worry about our own hand getting bitten off considering the size of their heads and how forward they go.

Watch as Kuchi gets arrested for the attack instead of her because despite yeen gender roles being inverted, she still ets a big-clotted pussy pass
>>
>>4546360
>Physically restrain Kiyomi

She's bigger yeah but also meat retarded. We can just use logic and kick her in the dick-pussy
>>
>>4546380
She literally has blood on her mouth and despite the fact that i haven't read beastars, i know society is mostly herbivore. I doubt they'd care abotu whether the yeen who attacked was male or female, they'd just want to arrest that one.

>>4546384

You get closer to Kiyomi. She starts to look bigger every second.

"Kiyomi, stop, you need to calm down..." You say unsurely, trying to put her in a false state of security so you can at least grab her around the neck. She gives off another throaty 'giggle' as you approach, clearly highly stressed and angry. Her muzzle wrinkles up.

"This is MY prey- You can eat second little BOY" She growls, barely cognizant. At least she sees you as a pack member instead of another piece of meat.

You're within striking distance now, but she looms over you. How are you going to restrain her?

>Bite Kiyomi on the neck
>Throw your arms around her neck / tackle
>Put your hands around her muzzle and keep it closed
>Kick her in the <REDACTED>
>>
>>4546400
Okay, Plan: Get Kiyomi the fuck outta there; if the doe dies from bloodloss, it sucks but I mean, y'know, witness lost.

If the doe lives, then we run off and sell blood-crack or something
>>
>>4546410
>Kick her in the <REDACTED>

Pffft, this is the one. I mean, its a Pseudo-penor. Has to hurt, right?
>>
>>4546410
Kiyomi still a cute
>>
>>4546410
>Kick her in the <REDACTED>
There is no loss of manly honor here because it's all "fake", so to say - it's not going to do permanent damage, and she's also a woman. It'll hurt to hell, but it's fake. Once the pain starts,
>Throw your arms around her neck / tackle
>>
>>4546417
>>4546428
You reel back your leg as Kiyomi gets closer, you angle it up and plant your foot as hard as you can right in her lawsuit zone. "Oof!" Kiyomi says, her thick and muscular thighs stopping the brunt of the kick. It seems like her lack of actual male genitals, plus not being as fragile as other females in build, means the groin kick really wasn't a good idea.

Just then, you hear panting and a voice behind you- It's Kemuri. He must have followed you as fast as he could, but he was a bit slower. "Kuchi! What are you doing!? Use your body! Your lower body is weak, upper body strong! Your claws are dull but your bite is strong! You're a Hyena Kuchi!" He half breathes, half shouts at you from behind.

Kiyomi looks down at you with confusion for perhaps half a second, before turning to anger. She reels back one of her arms with a balled up fist, her eyes not leaving you as they screw up in anger. She balls a fist and pulls back, ready to clobber you.

>Prepare for impact
>Try to deflect the fist with your arms
>Charge and tackle her midsection; going under the fist
>Lean in and bite her neck
>Something else?
>>
>>4546473
>Lean in and bite her neck
She's meat angry, i think we have an chance of dodging, right?
>>
>>4546473
Dodge and bite her arm. That'll incapacitate her.
>>
>>4546487
And then get bitten by her? She's meat angry and we have a smaller frame.
>>
>>4546473
>Lean in and bite her neck
We're smaller so taking hits would suck ass, its better to do this.

Not too hard though

>>4546475
>>4546512
>>4546487
Two votes for bite neck, one for bite arm. Bite neck wins.

------

You don't really want to do it, but you need to. You use your position to fling yourself into Kiyomi's chest underneath her swinging arm and bite her on the neck.

Your arms circle around her torso as she throws her head back and roars, unable to get at you- her hands float by her sides from a minute, as though unwilling to hurt you, but quickly latch onto your arms as she scratches your arms drawing blood. Your hear Paimon's voice from behind you with Kemuri screaming.

"Don't kill her Kuchi!"

To be fair, you don't really think you CAN kill her with this bite. It hurts like hell that she's digging into your skin with her claws, but your teeth are in her neck- pushing down on her muscles you honestly don't think you could bite to her jugular if you tried- not that you want to. Hot blood splashes into your mouth and, unfortunately, it is nothing like the meat market. It tastes disgusting. Kiyomi whimpers in pain as she tries to pull you off, her strong arms unable to get your death grip bite off her. Even so, you can feel her almost picking your feet off the ground, so you dig in your toes. You can feel her heartbeat through her neck, and even think you can feel her rapid breathing too.

>Claw her
>Bite harder to block her airway
>Bite softer and let her go if the deer girl is out of here
>Ask for help
>>
>>4546518
I don't have any good idea. Maybe we could put her in a necklock and only release her after that? I think we're in a good position.
>>
>>4546524
By release i mean the teeth, and only if we've got her on a good necklock...really, it's easy , our arm is already in a great place. We just need to move it upwards and we can pull a necklock.
>>
>>4546518
>Ask for help

The female hyena fears the group tactics.
>>
>>4546518
>SUPLEX!!!
>>
"Hey!"
>>
“Freeze!”

You and Kiyomi both see them at the same time; two herbivore policemen. Both have their pistols out and trained on the both of you.

“Let go of her! Stop fighting, or else we'll shoot!” They say. You release your jaws, step back, and put up your hands. Meanwhile, Kiyomi is hit in the back with a tazer, dropping her to the ground and stopping whatever high she had during her rampage; you're kind of glad you bit her and wrestled her now; if you hadn't, you get the feeling she would have shrugged off that taser, forcing the police officers to use their weapons...

The cops approach and handcuff Kiyomi. The pig moves towards the doe, and tells her to remain calm as the sound of sirens of the ambulance fills the air. Meanwhile, the horse officer goes to cuff you before Kiyomi practically mewls like a kitten.

“No! It's not his fault- take me! I'm guilty, don't hurt him, he's innocent!” She said sadly. The police officer takes Kiyomi and puts her on the curb. You hear Kemuri and Paimon breathing a sigh of relief behind you. Also, the footsteps of the girls coming up behind them.

You ask him for a moment with her, and he agrees despite the way he looks nervously at your bloodied fangs and wounded arm.

>cont.
>>
You sit on the curb with Kiyomi. You put a hand on her shoulder reassuraingly. She looks utterly ashamed, and very sad. Your kind gesture is the only thing that cheers her up. You're both dripping each others blood, and yet you've never felt as close.

“Kuchi I'm so sorry. Don't worry, they won't charge you with anything- I'll make sure of it. It's all my fault, you were just trying to stop me. They won't charge you with predation; they should make you a hero! As for me...”

Kiyomi looks down at the ground. For the first time, you've seen her cry. This might be the first time you've seen a female spotted cry.

“I'm going to become a predation offender! I'll get fired from my job, have to move out of my co-inhabited apartment. I don't even know how long I'll be in jail and rehab for.” She blubbers. You can't think of anything to say.

>Reassure her
>Ask her why she did it
>Ask her what a predation offender is
>Ask the police if the deer girl is ok
>Other?
>>
>>4546578

"Thank you.... Kuchi." She said, sniffling. Her makeup started to run. She looked so vulnerable right now, despite the hell of a fight she just put you through.

"Y-You got some blood on your face!" She said to you with a weak smile. You wipe it off with your sleeve- even though now you can clearly see the bite marks you put on her. You feel awful about this whole thing.

>>4546601
>>4546630

You ask why she did it. She looks ashamed.

"I don't know! I was talking and then somebody mentioned meat. I just kept thinking about how I wanted to go back to the meat market and then... I don't know. I kind of really mad and stormed out. Then I saw that deer running and I just... turned off. Went totally feral, my instincts took over. I feel so awful. I don't think that deer will EVER want to see a Hyena ever again, much less hear my apology..."

With that, the police officers tell you its time for her to go.

>cont.
>>
The police officers pick her up and take her to the cop car. One of them slips a muzzle over her face and locks it, putting her into the back of the police cruiser.

You stare at Kiyomi as she looks out the back seat. You want to say something, but you can't say anything. There's a lot more then glass separating you now. She gives you a final look before they speed off to jail.

You just stand there for a minute, unsure of how to feel or what to think. Even less of what to do.

-------

Hey all, thanks for playing today. I'm unsure if I'm going to change the format of this game, or if people like the more set "game session", or if a more regular stream of slower updates would be better. Let me know what you think or if you have any suggestions for the game, story, or art. I'll run another multi-hour "session" like this on Wednesday at 3 PM again unless we decide to change up the format. Thanks again.

I appreciated your encouragement to the sketches. Probably wouldn't still be doing them if you hadn't spoken up. I forgot to mention that a few days ago; Thanks Anon.

>>4544292
I ended up with a lot of character stuff in these first few sessions, but I intend for it to be more Shonen then actual Beastars. Hence the name. Kind of a fanfiction project, or "how I think it should have went", but through a new story.

>>4544308

>>4546671
Well, this is an interesting stop...wonder where we'll go from here.

Probably the hospital, i guess, and then straight to the police station since they're probably going to question us over what the hell even happened.
>>
>>4546744
Wouldn't groin kicks still hurt a chick, since ya know I think cunt punting is still supposed to hurt or something.
>>
>>4546744
I have a question, FurryWeeb. So we're at least close to Canon's timing, which makes me wonder if we'll impact canon at all.
>>
>>4547179
So, we should avoid therapists, professors, gangs and gay night clubs. Shouldn't be too hard.
>>
Jinxed it
>>
>>4547127
Probably. I just figured that kicking wasn't a good idea- Hyenas have a weak lower body. That's the theme I'm going with.

>>4547179
>>4547349
Yes, the Beastars canon isn't exactly sacred for this game, but it's meant to be on the side and not the main focus. I have some ideas for how the characters and stuff interact though, so that's part of the fun.

Last time; You successful save the life of a herbivore attacked by your female Spotted Hyena friend Kiyomi. The police have since taken her away, and you are now in the aftermath of the scene.

Your friend, Kemuri the Brown Hyena approaches you. Out of all your friends; he's the oldest. He's closer to thirty, a smoker, a bit mysterious. You honestly don't know much about him, except for what Sara tells you. He's got a weird look on his face, like he's in awe or something.

"Kuchi! Wow, you stopped Kiyomi from killing that girl. Good job."

"Uhh, thanks, I guess?" You say. You sure don't feel proud of yourself, Kiyomi was crying on her way to jail. This sucks.

"No, you don't understand! You're a natural talent- you should consider getting into fighting Kuchi, really!"

"I can't fight!" You exclaim. You don't know how true that really is. "I had to bite Miyomi, she almost killed me!"

"I know! That's what's so impressive about it! You stood up to her, you're a natural, Kuchi!"

>Tell him to fuck off
>Ask him why he cares about fighting at all
>Ask him if Paimon put him up to this
>Just go home
>Other?
>>
>>4548677
>Ask him why he cares about fighting at all

Fight club?
>>
>>4548677
>Ask him why he cares about fighting at all
Also, don't be too negative...i mean, it really does suck that she was arrested, but to be fair, you DID stand up to a female hyena. How many other spotted males would have done that?
>>
>>4548677
>Ask him why he cares about fighting at all
oooo boi
>>
>>4548682
>>4548693
>>4548708

"Why do you care so much about fighting anyway, Kemuri?" You ask.

Kemuri sighs. "I used to be a fighter. Professional too. Underground circuit, and street fights too. And then..."

He takes his paws and rolls up his pant leg up his left leg up to the knee. You see something you didn't expect- a prosthetic limb. You're amazed; while you never watched him that closely, the way Kemuri walked and acted was not like he had a serious injury like that in the past!

"As someone who once was in it, I can see talent. And you've got the talent, Kuchi. You're the biggest, strongest male hyena I know, and the girl spotted don't care nearly as much about this kind of thing. There's a lot of bad people in the world, Kuchi. We need good people to fight them."

He pulls his pants leg back down, giving you a wink.

"And you can make some good money doing it too, sometimes. You don't have much else going on in your life right now anyway, do you?"

>Ask him how to get into it
>Ask him more about himself / what happened to his leg
>Tell him it's too dangerous and you aren't interested
>Something else?
>>
>>4548736
>Ask him more about himself / what happened to his leg
>Ask him how to get into it
Be sure to ask more information, though. You don't wanna get thrown into an impromptu street gladiator battle with an crocodile in your first day.
>>
>>4548740
What this dude said

Although if we fight a croc we could totally win.
>>
>>4548743
If we had more experience, maybe. Right now we're an complete utter newbie and crocodiles have an retarded strong bite, much stronger than ours which is already top 10
>>
>>4548747
Yeah but we're faster than a croc and their jaw muscles are only great at biting down, not opening up.

Just hold the fucker's jaw shut and bite him
>>
>>4548762
It's harder to do that when your foe's got an humanoid form and tough-as-shit scales.

You shouldn't forget that we literally got downed by a single slap from Free.
>>
>>4548736
>Ask him more about himself / what happened to his leg
>Ask him how to get into it
>>
>>4548766
Yeah but crocs are slow though, it'll probably translate to humanoid forms in that regard
>>
>>4548736
>Ask him more about himself / what happened to his leg
>Ask him how to get into it
>>
>>4548809
Actually, they're fast as shit even on land but their walking stamina is also horrible, so that's an weakness.
>>
>>4548820
i don't think walking stamina matters if we are in a fight-club style ring fight
>>
>>4548823
You get what i mean by walking stamina. They tire out quickly.

"My leg? Well-"

All the sudden, Kemuri perks up. Sara shouts over across the street, her mood vastly improved. He turns to you and grins.

"Well, maybe you can find out if you come visit me. That might work as a proper incentive."

He reaches into his pocket and hands you a slip of paper. Its a flier for a gym not too far away from your neighborhood- and shockingly close to the back alley meat market.

"This place is where I learned everything I know. I can teach you here. Come visit, if you want." He said. "But there is more then one path to travel. For all of us."

Sara shouted again, waving to her boyfriend. Kermui gives you an apologetic look.

"Gotta go."

After that, he turns and leaves you to your thoughts- at least for that night. You're exhausted anyway. You go home, nurse your aching muscles and wounds, eat a light, vegetarian dinner, and go to bed.

Your name is KUCHI the Male Spotted Hyena. You are above average in height, and are considered a powerful and dangerous large bodied carnivore. You are a 20 something with little to no education or special skills.

Now you have to ask yourself a very important question. You stand in your mirror to look at your body; maybe "gifted" as Kemuri says, but untrained and not special.

So now the question is; What are you going to do with your life?

-AUTHOR NOTE-
This decision is multifaceted and open ended. You do not have to pick the most obvious path. I will be counting the votes in two hours.

>Go to Kemuri's Gym (Physical Strength & Boxing)
>Go Downtown. (Martial Arts)
>Go Wander. (Secret Technique)
>Go to the Back Alley Market (Brawling, weapons, gang violence, less Shonen)
>>
>>4548838
>Go Wander. (Secret Technique)

What's more shonen than a special move?

Also I'm glad the quest is open-ended like you said, so I can quench my desire for Shonen Gangweed
>>
>>4548838
Going to Kemurio's gym sounds like the obvious choice, if only to gain strength, but at the same time, i really do wanna know what the secret technique is.
>>
>>4548844
Our special move shall be the most evil, taboo act one can do. It shall make mothers sob to raise children in a world where it exists, men to cower in fear.

We shall use the technique of farting on someone's balls.
>>
>>4548843
Special Moves are cool, but don't we need an 'fighting' style? Shonen fighters don't just learn one move and spam it over and over again, at least not in good shonen.
>>
>>4548838
>Go Wander. (Secret Technique)
mystery boax
>>
>>4548849
Fair point, though in getting the technique first, we can match our training to it a little bit at least
>>
>>4548848
Kuchi may be an beast ar, but he's not an savage.
>>
what if the secret technique is super lame? it would be cool to just build Kuchi to be a badass martial artist...
>>
Secret technique was a little too tempting huh?

Don't worry, I'm still going to wait for all the votes to come in. However, I'll just reiterate here and say that you can do multiple training things in this game, we're just kinda deciding the main "theme" of the Shonen. All will involve physical training of course, the first one is just a bit more "Beastars" ish, especially for the first major arc of the manga. Martial Arts will be more power levels and pure training with animal Kung Fu, and Secret Techniques is moreso Shonen with a special snowflake MC if that makes sense. I'll leave you to it.
>>
>>4548868
I think i'm going to choose Kemuri's Gym then, special techniques are interesting but i really don't like special snowflake MCs.

Also, i want to the beastar feeling.
>>
>>4548868

If its possible to get the secret technique but keep the beastars vibe I'd be down personally

I feel like 'Secret Technique' depends on what it means. It could be anything from just an Hyena-Only Fighting Style to some pseudo-super martial art thing.

>>4548894
Or Ball Fart

In all seriousness though, we could probably use a species one like that

this is my first quest. i am liking it so far!
>>
Looks like 5 votes for the Gym, and only one vote for the Secret Technique. Even if I missed somebody, still a pretty solid lead. It's about time for the deadline, so I think it's fair to call it now.

Note: We can still pursue other options for character advancement later, if need be. Don't worry about it too much in case you're disappointed about this outcome.

Given the advice (and address) from your friend Kemuri, you decide what you need is a total change to your life. The gym! You need to become strong, and as far as you know, this is the best way to do it.

You put on your athletic clothes and make your way to the gym, following the road to a clean and sterile looking place. Not at all rundown like you expected. This place probably produced a few professional boxers in its day, or at least decent fighters. You just hope to find Kemuri here to start the next chapter of your life...

----
And that's all for today! Sorry about the slowness, had to do the big vote thing an draw some stuff. Not as eventful as some of our other sessions, but this one featured a bigger choice then all of them, arguably.

Also; we are changing the upload schedule. With the soon to be chaos of the holiday season; a once or twice upload a day upload schedule is more doable for me.
Please let me know what you think or how to improve anything for the quest. Thank you for playing.

I'm good with an once-twice update every day. This is going pretty good, so slow and steady works too.

You enter the gym. The smell of sweat hits you, followed by the smell of iron. You glance at a post of the rules on the wall- Predators must exercise one machine away from Herbivores at all times, all pheromonal animals please wipe down all equipment you use, if you are shedding, please use a strainer for the showers so they don't get clogged...

The place seems nice; plenty of machines and weights. Not too many people in here, you wonder if it's always this quiet. As you examine the patrons, you feel a bit of smug self satisfaction at seeing how, despite the fact you've never been in the gym before, you're pretty sure you're stronger then a lot of people here. Your arms look bigger then a lot of these guys! Maybe you really are naturally talented.

Then again, maybe it's just because you're a hyena.

You glance around, looking for Kemuri. He's not by any of the cardio or weight machines-

"Hey! Kuchi! Up here."

"Hey Kuchi." Kemuri says, looking at you from the boxing ring in the center of the room. He looks so relaxed here. You barely recognized him without his cigarette. You never see him this at ease, not even when he's with Sara.

"Come on up." He invites, stepping away as you climb up. "You've ever practiced striking before? Blocks?"

"Uhh, no?" You say, pulling your body up to the strangely stuff platform.

"Well- I know you can fight. At least a little bit, but you're sloppy. You can't rely on your mouth, you'll just end up killing people doing that."

You find that kind of odd, isn't that kind of the point of fighting anyway?

"Well anyway-" Kemuri says, popping his legs up and loosening up his body, his fists going up to his chest and clenching into balls.

"I know you can beat a GIRL. But let's see how well you can fight me."

"You wanted to know what happened to my leg? Well you beat me in sparing, and I'll tell you." Kemuri says, advancing towards you with a murderous gleam in his eye. He's a lot shorter then you, but you can tell he's much more experienced. This wasn't quite the introduction you expected to this "sport". You raise your fists as best you can to mimic him, and prepare to fight.

You approach Kemuri with a balled up fist. You're going to fight him, but you aren't going to go all out. He's still way smaller then you, and he's got a missing leg! You pull back your arm and slam it into his side, not holding back, but also not aiming for his head. Surprisingly, he doesn't dodge in time. He howls out in pain-

but almost before you can react, he lets out a jab that gets you right in the nose. Kemuri snarls. "Yeah! Yeah! Now we're fighting! LET'S GO!"

Jeez, he's kind of scary like this, but you can't be too surprised. Carnivores get aggressive when they fight- you're no exception. But you aren't going to fight dirty...

You feel like shit.

Your fights with Kemuri today hurt more then when you fought Kiyomi. You end up sparing for over two hours, he stopping midway through a bought to give you a chance to learn a step or move, or how to block. Finally- he says you've both been through enough.

You took more hits then he did, for sure, but you certainly did a number on him. He's a lot tougher then you thought, and a lot faster then you because of your lack of training.

"You didn't beat me, so still no leg story. Now, you need to start actually physically training. Skill will only carry you so far if your body isn't up to it."

Kemuri basically just said you need to get stronger. You need to start hitting the weights and machines.

In this game, we'll abstract a harder or more difficult choice as a sidequest, or more challenging prompt instead of relying on dicerolls.

You decide to take on a medium intensity training regime. You approach a weight machine after cleaning yourself off, setting the weights to a reasonable level...

Then you turn your head to see the biggest goddamn camel you've ever seen. The massive two humped guy looks right at you, disregarding the rules of the carnivore herbivore segregation at the gym- did he just have no fear?

"Yo. Mind if I use this machine next to you?" He asks.

"Uhh, no?" You reply.

He nods, and sets the rack of weights to its maximum weight. Using his huge arms, he pulls the weights back and then... holds them. It was like he was resistance training, but with these weights- and it was well over a hundred kilograms!

He takes a long time to finish his "set", and only does by letting the weights drop with a loud slam. Meanwhile, you finish your own moderate set of weights with sweat on your brow. Nothing too intense, though you may not accelerate at the rate you would really like...

After your workout, you find Kemuri out the back again, taking a smoke break. You look over each other for a moment, seeing the bruises and harm you caused each other.

"Hey." He says, motioning. "I just got off a phone call with Sara. She says that Kiyomi pleaded guilty to everything, she'll be given a shorter sentence." He quickly drops that topic to look over you again.

"How you feeling? Not too banged up, I hope? oh look! Your eye is opening up! See, I didn't hit you THAT hard!"

Given about how long his cigarette is, you reckon you have enough time to ask him one question before you get back to training.

You ask Kemuri some advice on training. He gives you a few pointers- a few that sound strange. "If you turn down the heat in your apartment by a degree or two, you can soothe your muscles. Cold is great for muscular growth- rub some ice on yourself or go for a run in the cold morning." He explains. With these new training trips, you feel more confident in your abilities, but you also feel more disconnected from your friends too. You march back in the gym wondering about Kiyomi...

Over the next few days, you train hard. Not only physical training, but fighting, enduring pain, and techniques for blocks, punches, kicks, and more from Kemuri. He's a great teacher, but as time goes on your size and physical size is making up the difference faster then skill. You could probably beat him in a week or less...

And then on Day 5 of your training, you start to really feel it. Fatigue. You aren't sure why. Your muscles are so sore, and you feel sick. You go to Kermui for some advice...

"Kuchi? What's wrong."

"I don't know-" You say. "I just feel weak. And kinda hungry."

Kemuri nods sadly. He takes you to the lockers and opens his up. Inside, you see a pack of smokes and a single pigs trotter hung up on the hook.

"Kuchi- it's been tough on all of us. Carnivores can't get stronger without meat, and with the meat market under the control of the Shishigumi... You might be getting close to your natural limit for training without some quality nutrition. All I've got left our scraps for myself- I'd be willing to share but even this was hard to get right now for us Hyenas."

"We can't be stupid about this." Kemuri says. "As your coach, I forbid you from going to the meat market- we can't risk anything. I'll can ask some of my other carnivore friends if they'll buy some for us, but it won't be cheap. We might have to go some time without meat Kuchi..."

You think you understand what he's saying. The last, and only time, you ever ate meat was with Kiyomi. Now you're running on empty, your meat drunkedness is long gone, and now your body has no animal protein to work with. You need better nutrition or else your training will grind to a stop.

>Eat more eggs, milk, bug meat, and other more available sources of protein.

I don't know, I feel like we won't be able to sneak into the meat market if we try to, and we're not strong enough to beat the Shishigumi.

However, I am hard pressed to think we'd find some other predator who we can trust enough to buy us meat. I mean, our circle of friends mostly includes hyenas, right?

Anyone have an idea, or should we risk sneaking?

I mean get us meat. I guess buy works, but I don't think we've got that money.

Still though, we need meat.

Fishing? I don't know if it works, but if it does then that's a good idea. Hyenas eat fish, and it's also a good source of protein.

True, but we don't need for it to fill it forever - eating fish for now will definitely do. Sure, it won't give you as much a rush as red meat, but it works enough that we're able to continue improving physically.

It'd be better to hold off having to deal with the Shishigumi until we're strong enough to not job to them like a chump.

The Sea? You think back to what you know about the sea. You've never been there, even to visit, and don't know how to speak sea. You probably couldn't even cross into the sea without a passport, at least not legally anyway. It's a terrible idea anyway; you don't know how to swim! Maybe you could build a... net? Or a fishing rod, whatever that is?

You decide to text some your friend group to see what you can find. You don't want to be obvious about eating meat- it's still illegal after all. But carnivores gotta stick up for each other...

Then, you get into a conversation with Tora, a striped hyena. She says that a guy she's dated before might have some access to meat. He's a professor that does dissections of dead herbivores with no preservatives- the body parts are disposed of after he's done with them, leaving a hole where they can disappear too.

You now have a choice; did you want to try to go fishing again, or check out the professor?
>Try the Sea
>Get Tora to set you up with the Professor

>>4552245
Now that's a good question...from what i know of beastars, while eating meat is a crime, it doesn't seem to get an constant fine comb if it has nothing to do with predation...right?

If the search is not THAT big, would they really miss some bits and pieces from an cadaver that was already dead and going to be incinerated anyway? I mean, all you need to do is get it and then throw the bone in the incinerator.

Someone correct me if i'm wrong, but i think that there isn't an very high chance of discovery, right? In the end, this is only a temporary solution until we get strong enough to be able to go to the meat market.

You decide to put the fishing thing on the backburner for now. It's early enough in the day that you can visit the professor- so you change into your street clothes and go down.

Tora tells you that this guy was somebody she knew a bit from a while back- a Professor at the university. Some of her friends and carnivores from their social circle get meat through this guy.

"He's a little weird sometimes, but he can get you some meat. Disguise yourself as a visitor to the campus and go find him near the morge in the science lab. His name is Kenji."

That's all the information she gave you.

You get a visitor badge and make your way into the university. Once classes begin, the place seems a bit quiet. That's probably a good thing, you reckon, to helping to find this guy. Tora didn't exactly fill you on what he was going to make you do or give him in exchange for this food- unless he just gave it away for free? You felt like that was too good to be true...

In the basement of the biology and science building, you walk through creepy halls. "Hello, can I help you find anything?" You hear. You turn around and see a middle aged goat in front of you. Your eyes scan to his namebadge; "Kenji", no way!

"Ahh, are you Kuchi?" He askes with a wry smile. You nod in response, still too stunned to speak. Tora dated this guy, a herbivore?!

He takes you down into the depths of the basement and slides his namebadge to enter a scary room. The smell inside... your mouth starts to water instantly. You were no longer meat drunk from a week ago after your first taste, but damn your body was craving this. The room was filled with dead herbivore bodies. It was cold, and the smell of blood was on everything.

The professor started to giggle to himself as he pulled up to a dead herbivore's body. He put his hands inside the cut open body, pulling out the dead man's heart.

Turning around, he held it out to you. His face was twisted into this sort of mocking grin.

"Aww, what's wrong, little carnivore? Hungry? You just can't help yourself to our bodies, can you? You want a little nibble? You can have some- if you eat out of the palm of my hands. Just like a good little doggy. Yesss....~"

Woah, this guy is nuts!

What do you guys think about the professor? Surely theres something we can learn from interacting with him, but just who is this guy? What kind of animal? Will he ask for favors for these scraps of meat? Money? Has he already been giving his meats to someone else and the friend just doesnt know that?
>>
>>4552685
>Other?
Buisness first, consumption of flesh later. So, is he just going to give us the meat? Because dont get me wrong that would be really nice of him, but I kinda expect him to ask for something in return.
So why's he willing to do this? Why does the "meat drunk" exist and where did it originate from? Are there pills or medicine for the meat drunk?

Give me the lore dump!

Yeah, this sounds way too easy...it's way too easy for it to be just about 'pride' or something. We should ask the catch behind it.

Yeah, it's obvious he's a weirdo...the question, of course, is whether he's just curious about why carnivores can get 'meat drunk' and even go berserk for meat, or if he's just plain cuckoo.

>"What's the catch?" You ask.

The goat narrows his eyes at you, his bloodstained paws dripping onto the floor. In a sudden explosion of anger, he throws the heart directly at your face, causing a small splat of blood into your fur, and knocking it to the filthy tile below.

"I give you this gift? And you DARE ask me what the catch is?!" The goat scratched, his voice amplifying as he takes a step forward. He points a blood stained finger in your face as he rants and raves-

"Who do you think you are? A "noble hunter"? Hah- you're a scavenger- not because you're a Hyena, but because you're a carnivore. When a noble herbivore soul leaves the world, you are there to gobble up the -waste- left behind. What's the difference between you and a Coprophagic insect? You both consume what is left to you by greater creatures. There is no difference!"

You have never seen a herbivore, no, anybody this angry before in your life. Ever. This goat is totally insane.

The goat is poking his finger in your face. You're starting to feel dizzy from the blood, you can't get over how easy, even enjoyable, it would be to bite that little finger off and swallow it. This is bad; your carnivore instincts are going off everywhere; you even realize how perfect this would be a place to dispose of him and hide his body- Even opening your mouth to speak feels like too much of a temptation. What are you going to do?

I feel like he doesn't care. It would be wise to just wait until his little shitfit ends. Pinching our leg or just doing something else, we just need to ensure we won't just fall to the bloodthirst,
>>
>>4553243
feeling and knowing are two different things. It won't hurt to just explain to him that we're really close to ripping his throat out. Plus we can do the leg pinching for what help that might provide.
Maybe visualizing nasty old people having sex might help curb the blood lust from the sheer levels of gross that mental image might provide.
>>
>>4553254
Saying that is just going to get him to REEEEE more. Also, if you want to visualise something that'll take away your attention, visualize something interesting and attention-requiring. Something that'll keep you on your toes. Too good and you'll find yourself drifting off to murder dream land, too gross and you'll find yourself away from it.

I think Kuchi should pinch himself while thinking of something he'll do later that he's interested in. I don't know, some game he likes? Some show?

You decide to hold it in and let the goat berate you. After you don't respond or say anything, he actually jumps up at you with both his hands around your neck. Then he tries to... pull himself up to your eye level? Or pull you down? You aren't really sure. You lower your guard and then...

Oh. You realize now. He was trying to choke you. He's so feeble you honestly didn't understand what he was trying to accomplish. Even with your small amount of training, and your natural predator strength, this herbivore can't even squeeze your muscular hyena neck. It might as well be trying to wring water from a rock. He puts his hands on your chest and slaps them weakly, before sliding down on his knees. He looks, and sounds, totally exhausted.

"I'm sorry... I'm sorry... I don't want to do this any more...." He chokes out. It is only now you realize he's crying. You see how vulnerable he is, both physically and emotionally, and you feel like a monster when your stomach literally grumbles when his hands slide over it. Man, why didn't you eat a bigger lunch?!

"Just- take what you want and go. Everything out is going to be incinerated in three hours. Just use the hacksaw, take what you want, but leave enough bones to be convincing. No bite marks on the bones... that's the only rule." The goat feeble says, sitting to the side on the filthy, mildly blood-stained floor. His glasses had fallen off his face and he was just sitting there, shocked, and totally silent now.

You decide to stay. Even with your head spinning, you can't just leave this shell of a goat on his own.

"Hey, it's alright. I forgive-" You begin to say, the goat leaping up way faster then he really should in your state.

"Oh really?! Thank you! Thank you! I'm going to start a new leaf, I swear! Kuchi was your name right? I can't see you without my glasses- let me get a closer look at your kind young face"

Oh this is bad. You put out your hands to stop him from getting any closer. Your mouth is drooling, your fangs are sliding free on their own.

There is an immense moment of clarity, much like right before one vomits up a bad meal. In that moment, you consider your newfound empathy and understanding for Kiyomi. Because in that moment, you know what is about to happen, and there is nothing you can do about it.

Like i said, if you don't have the strength to bite your arm, it's better to at least try to eat some meat and then control yourself...basically, biting your arm is the best way to evade going crazy, eating the meat at least means he won't immediately eat the goat.

Legosis deal was denying meat and training his senses and body, in return his jaw strength weakened.
Maybe we could have a kinda different route, we still eat meat, but only meat that is already from something dead, that way we don't get weak at anything, but maybe not get as much body strength in return.

You crawl towards the cute, delicious little goat boy that just fell in your lap. Hehehhahaha

You feel yourself start to giggle, then chortle and laugh as the stress of your prey drawing near. In the wild, this would attract other Hyenas towards you- it is time to feed.

"Kuchi!? Kuchi stop!" Kenji says, watching helplessly as you crawl forward. he turns his head to see the discarded heart from earlier- the one that he threw at your face.

"Here! Eat this! Eat this!" The professor says, practically shoving the heart into your mouth. While having dead, cold prey doesn't sound that exciting... you kind of just chomp down on it without thinking. The goat gets up and runs out of the room. You don't even go chase him- for some reason you don't really feel like it. Mhmm. This is really good. Your jaws clench down on it, shredding the fibrous muscles in your jaw with ease, popping the organ open and spilling its -juices- right into your mouth. You chew while you sit on the floor.

Yummy yumm!

...Wait, what's going on? You remember. You come back to your senses halfway through chewing up a heart that was on the floor. Yuck. It still tastes amazing though. You're glad you were able to resist chewing on Kenji- you were going to. You just know it.

But now he's escaped and gone away. Is he going to call the police? Or is he just going to chalk this up to you being an 'inferior predator' or whatever he was babbling about earlier? You hate to prove him right but...

Damn, what were you thinking?! You stayed in this room for so long, ignoring all the warning signs, and the heavy smell of blood and bodies making you go crazy. You should have left when you had the chance. How vulnerable the goat acted was just the last straw- your predatory instincts came out in full force then. You're just glad you didn't hurt him- you had enough mental resistance to the idea of attacking him that you didn't follow through, at least with the time you had left.

But now you got a chance. It's time to grab some food and get the hell out of here. What are you grabbing?

Flesh n blood

Bones n organs would be noticed missing.

I don't think we have time for two. Organs have the most nutrients and protein in the body, so this will be good.

Other than that have to gtfo outta there. Maybe it'd be good to apologize later, explain why you went basically feral. Considering how he seems to be at reasonably smart, he might figure it out if you escape without going feral.
>>
>>4554379
Aren't they going to notice the flesh more than organs? They're supposed to have been dissected, after all. Why would they dissect meat?

Also, do we really have time for two things? I feel like if we stay for two things there's a chance someone might come...even if sad goat doesn't call the cops.

The goat is in too deep to call the cops. The worst conclusion that could be drawn is that some carnivore snuck in and got some shit while the goat was "Gone'

Fair enough, but to be fair the system is quite herbivore-leaning, and he's an teacher while we're an student who not that long ago had a run in with the police after a friend was arrested for predation.

But yeah, while i don't know if he'll just call it immediately, there's still a chance something will happen. Honestly, i don't know how long it takes to drain blood. I mean, is blood even a good choice? It's just lukewarm salty iron water.

If we're picking one, it should be organs because of how many nutrients organs have...If it's two, it might be wise to pick flesh n organs
>>
>>4554405
Blood has the benefit of being a liquid, so we can carry small amounts with us as pick me ups, say before fights.
>>
>>4554410
It's also pretty much empty, no filling and no nutrients. This is not our "final" source, in the end. We're really just doing this because we're too weak to fight any shishigumi that might try to run us off from the meat market.

As a whole, it would be wise to take the stuff that'll give us the best boost in our training.

Your name is now MR.GROUNDER. You are a COMMON WOMBAT. You are a herbivore that eats seeds and roots, and you are currently very, very irritated.

You put on a straight face. The woman across from you is a TOTAL LUNATIC.

"You have no idea how much this means to us." She sobs, "We're stict Terratarians, you know."

"Oh yes, absolutely." You reply, deadpanned.

"Did- Did you know that most cemeteries and mortuaries employ carnivores? I mean, how can they do this?! It's a clear threat to our religious freedoms!"

"Um hmm." You say.

"I mean, I have nothing against carnivores," she explains, wiping at the tears on her face. "But our religion says that if even a bit- even a single drop of my boy's blood is eaten by a carnivore... he'll never go to heaven!" Her bunny body trembles.

How did this religion even pop up? Sounds like it'd be unpractical in any place that isn't modern society. Are we dealing with an televangelist? Please tell me we're not dealing with an televangelist.

>>4554473
Anon, he was already going to be eaten...by vermin, later. If being eaten by ANY carnivore, even after their death, just bars them from hell, then they should have just incinerated him.
>>
>>4554486
Could be something that happened when they were just gaining sapience, to gain a reason to defy their nature and do anything to not get eaten
>>
>>4554489
Eh, you're right. Their loss!
>>
>>4554490
Yeah, but like, it's a weird religion if it just says that anyone who gets eaten doesn't go to heaven. It's one thing to believe that if you die at the hands of an carnivore you don't go to heaven, but even after death? Maggots existed since always, and incineration didn't become good enough to be done on a wide scale until much later.
>>
>>4554496
I think its more of a "by a carnivore" thing. IIRC getting your body destroyed would stop you from entering Heaven before the plague happened and everyone had to burn the bodies. The decomposition hadn't been taken into account yet
>>

> getting your body destroyed would stop you from entering Heaven
I doubt that was true for mainstream christianism considering the amount of early christians who got burnt to death

You reach across the table to the RELIGIOUS LADY and take both her hands in yours. You can feel her pulse as she sucks in her breath to hold strong.

"You are incredibly brave. I know this is very hard on you, but as a woman of faith you know how serious the care of a loved one is once they... pass on."

She nods at your speech. A weak smile spreads on her face.

"The scientific research initiative is the right choice. You've made the right choice here. I know you only want what is best for your Son. I want you to grieve in peace. That is what he would have wanted."

She sobs silently. "Thank you." She says weakly.

You are back to being KUCHI the SPOTTED HYENA. You just gone down stealing several kilograms of FLESH and ORGANS from the research morgue at the bottom of the university. You tried to be as careful as you could with your cuts, and stole a few backpacks and sacks to help take it with you.

Going to the bathroom, you had to wash as much of the blood as you could out of your fur from what happened with Kenji, the goat. Then, you made your getaway.

Things didn't go the way you wanted down there. You weren't really sure what to expect. You thought maybe Tora would have given you a better warning!

Anyway, you're terrified. You have no idea if Kenji is going to call the police, or what is going to happen if anybody finds any of the body parts missing. You need to store this meat somewhere cool and secure.

You get on the next bus. You know that if you reveal that you got this meat to the other Hyenas, you'll have to share it. That's fine, you aren't opposed to that. Everybody has been hit hard by the Hyena-discrimination policy. Kemuri, Tora, Sara, Masumi, Kiyomi- I mean she's in jail but maybe you can smuggle some in, and yourself...

The only thing that worries you is that goat you attacked. You realize that, according to what little you knew about him from Tora, he was illegally gathering meat from these herbivores donated to science.

Damn- there are so many herbivores around! Did you get on a herbivore only train or something!? Just play it cool until you get to the gym...

You are now MR GROUNDER the COMMON WOMBAT again. It's 7:40 and you just finished counting your FAT STACKS OF CASH you've gained.

How does a non profit organization dedicated to scientific research and finding safe, affordable, spiritually appropriate disposal of bodies for herbivore families make so much money? Well, that's because of your SIDE HUSTLE.

You belong to a group of criminals who sell body parts as food on the back alley market. Of course, your main role in the organization is to bring the “merchandise” in. As such, your position is SALESMAN. With a commission for every body you bring in, your position is quite lucrative.

You're closing up your office when, all of the sudden, there's a knock on the outside door. Shit, who could possibly be here at this time of day?! You're closed! No more customers! Is it the police? A crazed carnivore who wants to nibble on the corpses here?!

You rush to the door and open it. Kenji the goat comes inside.

"Why didn't you call?! You know you're not supposed to come here until it's time for your cut of the pay-"

"I'm sorry. I lost my glasses, I couldn't call you on the phone; it was too blurry."

Ugh. "Alright, why ARE you here then?" You ask impatiently.

"Mr.Grounder I- I can't do this anymore! I want out! I was almost attacked by a carnivore today, I can't deal with this anymore. All the people we've lied too-"

You pull out your gun, and make him kneel down. You push it against his head.

"N-No! Wait, I'm sorry! I take it back, please don't kill me!"

I mean, it's obvious that predators are going to want meat. And those who are willing to break crime to do it are going to find one way or the other.

You decide to persuade Kenji to remain.

"Kenji, buddy. Look, we provide a useful service. If these herbs had to use regular mortuaries they'd be even more unhappy. Now we can make use of them for science, AND keep all the carnivores nice and fat, and off our backs, right?"

"I guess so..." Kenji says, you putting your arm around him after just pointing a gun at him has clearly unnerved him.

"Listen, Kenji- I know you're having trouble with getting enough buyers. But that's no excuse to start slinging freebies to your carnivore "friends"- first that girlfriend of yours, and now this guy who attacked you. What's his name? Don't worry- I'll make sure he stays away."

"You'll just scare him right? His name is... Kuchi."

"Alright Kenji, go home, take a break, we'll get back to work in a few days."

----

Well, whoever this Kuchi is, you won't stand for it. Anyone who thinks they can steal merchandise from you is good as dead. You need to call SECURITY.

"Hey, Joe, we have a problem. Name is Kuchi, a spotted Hyena. He runs with Kemuri's crowd. Need him gone. Do you have any who I'm talking about?"

Now that the intensity of the situation has calmed down...

You actually feel great! You managed to steal a whole bunch of meat from that crazy goat and bring it back here. You bet Kemuri is going to be so excited.

“Kuchi!” Kemuri asks. “I thought you weren't training today? Sara told me-”

You motion to your pack. “I solved the meat problem.”

Kemuri looks stunned for a second, before waving his hands. “Well why didn't you say so! Quick, let's get it downstairs. I have a place.”

He leads you down to the basement of the gym, and behind a locked door he leads you to what looks like a vault built into a wall. It's a freezer! Kemuri and yourself get to unloading your packs of meat and setting them out.

“This is awesome Kemuri, you built this?” You ask.

“Yeah, back when I was still competing as a fighter. I know the owner, I paid off the debt for this whole building, so he looked away when I built this secret meat vault...”

Once both of you were finished, Kemuri beams with pride at you.

“Kuchi- this is amazing! This is going to last us a long time. I'll send you some food to bring back to your apartment. Sara is a great cook you know? I'll invite you over for dinner some time...”

You get home a bit later then you expected. It was unusually cold outside today! But you're glad you're home because...

Damn you're really hungry. Laying out the feast in front of you made from all that meat, you take your chance to really dig in and enjoy it.

...Man, that was great! You don't know if you've ever eaten so much food before- well, at least that much meat all at once! You feel great. Today was a crazy day, you think, and it's time to go to bed.

But you remember something Kemuri told you- he said something about cold air being good for muscles? Your muscles are still a little sore- you guess today was your rest day, but perhaps some cold air would help?

>Sleep with the window open

Cold Air while you're sleeping, from an unregulated open window, is DEFINITELY not good for your muscles. It's good if you're awake or/and with an air conditioner, but it's not good at night.

You decide to go to bed with your windows shut. No need to get super cold, even if it is supposed to help with muscle soreness...

You wake up the next morning and feel... weird. Not bad, just kind of weird. Maybe it was all that meat you ate? You ate a lot of organs, which are supposed to be full of vitamins and minerals. You feel a bit of a rush all over! Or is it just your meat high again?

You turn on the news while preparing for the day- it seems to mention a cold front has blown into the city, dropping temperatures even colder then normal this time of year. Hmm, maybe it was a good thing you didn't open your window and subject yourself to that. But you can't shake a weird feeling you have. Strangely, you feel like you.. almost had something. Something just out of reach. Maybe if you had trained harder, or learned another skill. What is this strange feeling of anticipation you have all over?

Wait- you know what it is! It's your desire. You know what is going to happen today... You're going to be Kemuri! Finally! Today is the day. You get ready as quick as you can, feeling refreshed, and rush to the gym...

Once you get to the gym, everything is like any other day. You feel pumped with all that meat flowing through you- and it'll be a fair fight, since Kemuri probably had some too. That's fine. You want to wind this fair and square.

"Alright Kemuri!" You say, pointing at your mentor. "Get ready, I'm going to take you down today!"

"Oh- that determined are we? No pointers first? Fine. Bring it on, Kuchi!" He says, assuming a stance.

Much like the first time you fought him, you let Kemuri get closer so you can give him a body shot- but this time, you're stronger. Faster.

You wait until he's within range and bam! You throw a hook into him from the side. He puts down both arms and blocks the attack- Kemuri looks up at you with a smile.

"Oh- same old Kuchi huh? Well I can feel how much stronger you're getting- but you're still MY student. Get ready Kuchi!"

Kemuri stands back and then, almost out of nowhere, he starts letting his fists fly.

"You still got a lot to learn, Kuchi! Take my bullet punches! ARGHHHH!"

Holy shit. You have never seen anyone punch this fast before. His attacks are very strong and so rapid, you don't have time to give in a counter attack. How can anyone even punch that fast? Is this Kemuri's secret technique?! He must have been going easy on you all those times you spared in the past, because you've never seen him like this!

You hold up both arms to hold back the tide. You can defend yourself for now, but he's so aggressive and persistent you feel like you'll run out of stamina if he doesn't first. There's no way he can keep this up for long, right?

Bracing yourself, you hold on against the torrent of blows. You know you can't last forever, and your arms are starting to hurt- welts and bruises are popping up all over your arms.

You wait until Kemuri slows down just enough for an opening and, stepping into your strike, you launch an attack-

It's the reach! You're bigger then Kemuri, and your arm is strong. With a quick jab you flow between his fists and put one right at his snout. Kemuri yelps and falls down to the ground.

Uh oh!

Rushing over to him, you look down in concern.

"Are you ok, Kemuri?" You ask, offering a hand to help him up.

He is smiling up at you, even with the blood dripping out of his nose. You must have hit him real hard. His tail is wagging.

"Oh yeah, Kuchi! That was great. I need a smoke after I get fucked that hard."

You and Kemuri head to the back of the gym.

You shake your head. "No, not really." It's probably because he didn't put a shirt on.

Kemuri sits and smokes for a bit in silence. His nosebleed stopped, at least.

"Well, you beat me Kuchi. Just like I said. Do you want to know how I lost my leg? That's what we agreed on."

“You want to learn the story that bad, huh? Alright.” Kemuri says, clearing his throat. He begins.

“Back when I was still competing, I'd go out for a 10 kilometer jog in the morning. Five on the way out, and then five on the way back. It was cold out that morning, much like this, and I spend an extra minute getting ready at home with my jacket...”

“Then, I got to the end of my route. I always stop at a road marker leading into the city, and cross the road to the other side. This road is usually barren of cars, and I didn't hear any coming, so I continuing jogging right across the road- until all of the sudden a car comes barreling around the turn fast as hell. It slams into me and pulls me to the ground, and my legs goes under with it and gets all twisted up. The car keeps speeding on; a hit and run. I never learned who did it.”

“The wound was bad. My bone was sticking out of my leg and it was bleeding. I knew I wasn't going to be able to walk back, so I had to do something.”
>>

“So I dragged myself to the side of the road and put a tourniquet on the wound using a piece of my clothing and a stick. Then I had to wait. It take almost two hours for another car to pick me up. Once it did, it took another half hour to get to the hospital. You know what the first thing the doctor says to me is?”

“You shouldn't have put a tourniquet on it.” He says. I was at no risk of bleeding out from the wound. Because I had done that, I cut off all the blood flow to my lower leg. By that point, permanent damage had been done- my whole lower leg was dead. So, they told me they had to amputate it.”

Kemuri looks away. Wow, you were expecting something a lot less... sad.

“After that, I became extremely self destructive. I started to drink, smoke, and pick random fights with strangers- I knocked out twenty guys before a big hippopotamus put me in my place. My career was over- and I only blamed myself. Every time I looked at my leg, I just hated myself more and more. I'm really not that much older then you, Kuchi, but the stress caused me to look this way.”

“But then I realized something- I was killing my life. The healthy parts of my life were being squeezed to death, just like the tourniquet had done to my leg, because of one bad thing. I guess that's kind of a shitty metaphor, hehe. But what I'm trying to say is; don't let one bad thing that happens to you cause you to kill every other good thing in your life. Does that make sense?”

“...Hey Kuchi.”

“Yeah?”

“I don't want to ruin this moment. But you smell. Really bad. Like your body waste is coming out through your pores or something. Please take a shower. You can't go on the bus like this. Please.”

You took Kemuri's advice and take a shower in the back of the gym. The room is steaming from the cold air outside and the hot shower water. You can barely see anything! Strangely, some of the faucets are still on, but you don't see anybody here. Must have been someone very inconsiderate.

You take a quick shower and clean yourself off. Taking a towel, you feel much better. Wait- is someone there?

You suddenly feel a metal chain wrap around your neck and pull you back into the shower. Struggling against it, you know whoever is behind you is extremely strong, and very big too. You swear you smell herbivore too, but you can barely smell in this shower! This grip is like steel! The chain digs into your neck, trying to choke you out.

You feel this guy's grip is very strong- he's much bigger then you are.

"Hey! Quit struggling!"

Do you know this voice from somewhere? Have you heard this guy before? You step back into his chest to hit him with your elbow as hard as you can. He flexes up, his grip dropping enough to give you back a little air-

"Knock that shit off!" He says, pushing the top of your head down against the chain from behind. Your windpipe is instantly shut- you can't breathe! You only have a few seconds before you black out!

Technically the thing to do is to quite literally fall into him. Everyone is built to not fall forward with their feet sticking out in front of them to do so.

When you lean back all they have is their heels. Considering he'll have only two points of contact with the slippery bathroom ground, I'm sure he's not gonna enjoy it.

>Claw him
Casterate him and aim to fall backward with him. His mass and the slippery shower floor will only make it worse.

You attempt to claw your attacker. It is difficult to get your claws in- trying to reach his eyes or crotch behind you is very difficult. You make your best movement backwards to slam into him, but don't succeed in knocking him over. You do succeed in digging your claws into his skin, and feel a bit of warm blood coming out, but its not much.

Finally, your body is at its limit. Unable to keep your muscles supplied with oxygen, you begin to slump. Your attempts to strengthen yourself have failed; you weren't strong enough to beat this guy. He was too big, and the chain too strong, he surprised you. Maybe if you would have trained harder...

The last thing you hear as he begins to drag you out of the showers is the camel talking to himself.

"Now to find a nice, quiet place to finish you off..."

You are now KEMURI the male brown hyena. You're an experienced (though now retired) Fighter and have been training your star (and only) pupil KUCHI today. But now? You'd consider him a close friend.

...Where is he anyway? You've wasted a lot of time cleaning up the place and he still hasn't come back from the shower yet. You wanted to invite him to dinner tonight; your girlfriend SARA who is also a brown hyena was going to cook water buffalo Ramen- your favorite!

Ok, this is taking way too long. You did kind of insult him by saying he stank, but you hope he didn't leave out the back entrance or something because of it! Is he shampooing his whole coat or something?

You decide to check out the locker rooms. Once you get inside, you're surprised by what you see. No Kuchi- in fact, nobody there. But there is a trail of water leading from the showers- wait, is that blood? It's very faint, but you can smell blood in the water. And it smells like herbivore?

Now you're concerned. Did Kuchi attack a herbivore? He'd never do that!

You follow the trail to the stairs leading down to the basement and storage area. Nobody ever comes down here, except the maintenance staff and... well, for the meat locker. But it's a secret, nobody knows about it?

You come down the stairs to see a rather LARGE CAMEL dragging Kuchi inside the meat locker! Oh shit. You just barely recognize him. You hide behind the stairs- Kuchi looked like he was totally limp- is he dead? Is the camel getting revenge for one of his family members bodies you got in your meat locker?! You didn't think their was any camel!

>Sneak up behind and attack
You move slowly until within range- there's no time to search for a weapon. Charging in, you perform a powerful overhand strike right on the back of the camel's head. Your fist glances off the skull with a loud THUNK. It wasn't like you were hitting skin or flesh at all! You are very surprised at this, in fact you are so surprised that your art gets really fucked up!

It seems like that the Camel's body was incredibly hard; much harder then it should be. Was this some kind of secret technique or training? The Camel is moving...

With a backwards hand, the camel knocks you backwards. He's a LOT bigger then you are, and so the blow sends you reeling. You quickly scramble up to your one biological / one artificial feet just in time to see the camel slam the vault door shut.

You're in the freezer. It will take at least a few minutes, probably with both you and Kuchi, to open that door from the inside. Damn, he's strong. It's cold, you really wish you were wearing a shirt or something.

"You probably think I'm just some camel... well that's where your wrong. I'm a two humped camel, or a Bactrian Camel.I can go for forty days without water and even longer without food. I only sleep three hours a night, and I'm adapted to cold and hot weather. You'll freeze to death in here before you can finish me off. Not only that, but I adapted this endurance into my training- I can't be hurt with your fists. Just give up."

The camel warns, giving you time to regain your footing. Nearby is Kuchi- totally naked and still wet from the shower! You feel even worse for him. Is he even breathing? You wished you had a moment to check, but you don't know if you can with this camel so close. What are you going to do?

You wanna go for a knife or cleaver for that, not a meat hook. If you go for the hook then you might as well try skewering the hook through his temple, which might be too thing. His arms, torso and legs on the other hand are nice and meaty.

Endurance and getting punch in the junk are clearly two different things. There's also the issue of actually jump up there when he's got two big beefy arms.

True, but that doesn't mean he's fast enough. Even with a pegleg, Kemuri's got good agility. Plus if you actually bite his neck, trying to tear him off could easily kill him, hyenas eat bones like they're fucking potato chips.

Also, i don't know about the junk part because, once again, camel.

You decide to go in for the kill with a BITE after you eat some MEAT to power yourself up.

You wish it didn't have to come to this- biting isn't the kind of martial art you wanted to teach to Kuchi. If this wasn't a life or death situation, you wouldn't even consider it.

You edge yourself towards some shrink wrapped meat- perfect for this. You'll have to violate the rule of the Back Alley Market and eat this without even knowing what kind of animal its from, but if that's what you have to do to survive-

“Listen, Kemuri, right?” The camel says. You're a bit unsettled he knows your name. “I belong to a group of herbivores that sell meat. We can't show any weakness to our carnivore clients, as I'm sure you understand. This Kuchi kid? He's the one I'm after. You don't have to die, this has got nothing to do with you. I have orders to kill him though, and he's going to die today, no matter what you do.” The camel says gravely, putting up both his hands defensively towards you. Is that supposed to soothe you?

“Listen, I know you Hyenas are pack animals, so you probably want to take care of your friend. But look- the meat in this locker? It's stolen. Kuchi attacked one our herbivore members, and then fled with a bunch of our meat. That's not something you get to walk away from. You shouldn't defend him. If you give up, I'll let you go, no questions asked. You understand, don't you? It's the rule of selling meat.”

The camel argues with you, even though you've clearly already made up your mind.

You spin around quickly, as to minimize the time you're off your guard. You rip open the package of the meat and raise it up to your face.

“Hey! Put that down!” The camel cries across the room, but you don't listen. As your eyes scroll back to your enemy, you glance over Kuchi's body for just a moment and- wait! He's shivering! He's still alive! But it is cold in here, that's for sure. If you're cold, Kuchi most be freezing!

You stand to face your adversary. You want to go for his throat, and bite down. You're a brown hyena, and aren't as big or strong as Kuchi is, but your bite is still really strong. You prepare and leap up at the camel's neck, who doesn't seem to do much to stop you.

“Oh, that's how it's gonna be huh?” He says.

You've done it! Your teeth sink into his neck, but you can feel the Camel moving around. He's probably going to try and push you off in a second. Your teeth are in, and you can taste just a bit of blood.

Grab some meat, loosen the chains around Kuci's snout, and leave the meat with him. Maybe the meat could work like one of those waking salts? I'm sure he's hungry enough to want a post work out meal.

We could actually choke out the camel if we could get the chains over a meat rack rod. pull choke him using our body weight and spike him on a meat hook.

We're tearing part of his throat off. If there was a place to hide body, this is it.

You begin to bite down hard on the Camel's neck. Your jaws are strong, but damn his skin and muscle his thick- it's like biting into cardboard! You can see him balling up a fist, and you get ready to pull out his throat before-

"FANG BREAKER!"

The camel brings around an open palmed slap with the arm on the same side you're biting his throat- the slap landing on the back of your head. Your jaws shoot open by reflex and you can't hold your grip- that hurt! He basically curb stomped you with his hand! You're lucky your bite is as strong as it is, else he might have broken out your teeth, or snapped your jaw open all the way and really fucked you up. You don't think it's safe to bite him again if he uses that move against you again- you might lose a few teeth.

Your mouth was forced open by the blow and you fell to the floor. You lie there for a moment and your head is swimming.

"I specialize in taking down medium to large bodied carnivores just like you. Only thing that scares me is a really big bear- and you ain't no bear."

Your eyes shoot open just to see him bring a foot down, so you roll out of the way. You quickly get up to your feet. If fists or fangs won't work against this guy... you're not sure what will. You're running out of options. The only thing you can think of now is your other secret technique or to try and get the chain off of Kuchi. You've gotta think fast.

You run over to Kuchi's body as fast as you can. You grab the chain from around his neck and pull it off, seeing the bruises where he was choked. You can tell he's still breathing but- does he look a bit different?

You can't stop though, you turn around because you know the Camel is coming. You wave your chain as threateningly as you can, and then go in for a few quick hits. Painful welts appear on the camel's skin as you hit him on the arm, and then the chest. He grimaces in pain, before grabbing your chain on the third hit. You expected this as much, and you know he'll win a tug of war.

You as you expect, the Camel tugs the chain towards him as hard as he can. Just what you were waiting for. You grab hold and decide to finally use your other secret technique-

You stamp your foot against the floor just before you get tugged airborne to reveal the secret knife from the toe of your prosthetic leg. Flying in with a kick, you aim for the camel's stomach, but can only get to his leg- the knife sinks in but only an inch or two; his flesh is way too hard for this tiny knife. Standing back, you strike an aggressive stance.

The Camel was right. Your brown hyena body cannot handle this cold air. It's been too long and you're starting to shiver. This was probably what he was waiting for. Your stance is weak and you're struggling to get in breath without it hurting your lungs. You need to finish this as soon as possible. You go with your instinct and go in with a lethal kick- but he grabs the heel of your artificial limb and performs a karate chop to your knee- your prosthetic straps snap off and you fall down; one legged. You feel like that move would have broken your knee if you still had your whole leg, so maybe it was for the best...

You fall to the floor, one legged and unable to stand or fight. The camel looms over you. Are you going to die in this meat locker? His hands reach for your throat...

And then a spotted fist wraps around his head and punches the camel with an incredible force! His glasses are knocked off his head and fall to the ground, shattered. That hit would have knocked you out cold, maybe even gave you a concussion, but to this enemy it just staggered him away. But you know what this means-

It's Kuchi! You stare in amazement. He IS different. He looks nothing like the young Hyena you shared a tender hug with an hour ago. He seems stronger, taller, his fur thicker, and he changed colors too; his coat is almost white at some parts!

“Kuchi! What happened to you?”

You are now KUCHI the SPOTTED HYENA. You just woke up in this meat locker and you feel TOTALLY PUMPED.

You stand against the big camel guy. He's not even looking at you, just holding his face. He's almost trembling... in what? Fear? No... anger?

"Kuchi! Watch out. If you bite him he might do a move to break your teeth. Plus he's really strong! I don't know how but his skin is too hard to cut, even with knives and teeth! You have to hurry before you freeze, Kuchi!"

Kemuri seemed like he was trying to give some solid advice but... you don't feel cold. At all. Haven't you been in here longer then he has? You're not sure, you were blacked out for most of that. You glance at Kemuri... he's really cold. You can see him shivering still. And his prosthetic is gone.

"You... fuckers." The camel says, before spinning around.

You let it out unintentionally. You were NOT expecting that. The Camel has like, 7 cm long eyelashes. What the hell? He looks so girly!

“Yeah yeah, laugh it up you little fucker! How do you think I feel as a GUY camel going around with these all day? That's why I wear glasses! I've tried everything; plucking, trimming, waxing, even laser surgery... NONE of it worked! My body keeps growing them back! So you know what I'm going to do? I'm going to KILL both of you little shitwolves and collect my check. Then? I'm going to buy a nice big pair of aviators to wear around. That's what both of your lives are going to amount to- a new pair of shades for yours truly!”

He flexes his hands, like he's getting ready to strangle you to death. He's coming. It's time.

You're feeling amazing. You're stronger! Kemuri can tell first. You're even feeling a little... cocky. Let's put this camel in his place.

Balling up a fist, you ready yourself and run towards his bulk. With a fast punch, you put one right in his nuts.

"Oowww!" He cries, his face screwing up in pain.

"Kuchi! Look out!"

You pull back just in time to feel his hand narrowly avoid closing in around your neck. He gets a handful of your now thicker fur- it hurts like hell when he pulls out a thick clump with his iron-grip fingers.

"Kuchi! He's a grappler, he doesn't strike! Don't let him grab you!"

You prepare yourself, and slow down your ego a bit. This guy is still dangerous, still bigger then you, and still stronger. You need to find a way to defeat him- he's taken a lot of damage, and your nutshot seems to have made him even more angry, but it's unlikely to do much to put him down with the adrenaline running. Both his hands are open and ready to go in for a grab- you don't want to get into that herbivore's grasp again.

What now?

Pretty much this. The problem is the "how" though. I mean, i don't think he's going to try to slap us, right? He seems to use punches more, and that'd make biting his fingers out way hard.

Unless you just mean biting off the front off his hand, on which case i agree.

You're going to try and bite his hands. You nip at his fingers the next time he gets close. He responds by curling up his hand into a fist and presenting his forearm instead; if you bit him there it would seriously minimize the damage, plus his free hand is open to grab your neck from behind.

You decide to try taunting him instead. "Hey- what kind of mascara do you wear, my girlfriend would like to- OOF"
Out of nowhere, the camel gave you a kick to the face. You were concentrating on his hands, not his feet, and a leg shot up and hit you right in the side of the head. Ouch. Instantly, you lose vision in your right eye. This is bad.

But then, you suddenly see it. Your good eye practically locks in on your target.

There! Almost totally unintentionally, you've lined up the back of his head with one of the meat hooks on the ceiling. He's pissed from your comment from before, you just know it. He raises up both his arms; you aren't in a position to dodge.

"Die!" He yells- he's about to catch you in a bear hug and crush you to death!

This is it! You feel your pulse quicken. Time almost seems to slow down- what are you going to do?

With an emphasis on pushing. He's not going to be thrown back by an uppercut because this is not an batman comic, and i doubt he's dumb enough to impale himself.

HOWEVER, this dude is clearly bigger at the top than the bottom. If kuchi is able to destabilize him with a punch, he'll slip backfirst into the meat hook.

Also, this is a freezer, right? The floor's gotta be slippery as shit with water or ice.

I don't think physics work like that. Even if we're strong as shit, punches don't just send you in the air. We'd be at best making him tilt back, and at that point you're better off just going with an punch-push.

I was thinking more like body tackle which has more kinetic energy than a punch. Then use the moment energy of center of mass imbalance to do the rest.

There is a moment of quiet when the hook embeds itself in the back of his head. It slides through his skull and through his eye socket. The camel looks stunned, shocked, his brain destroyed-

And then he starts to scream. Blood begins gushing from his wound- spraying onto you from a few feet away! He's clutching towards his skull; what?! How the hell is he still alive?!

"AAHHH!! GET IT OUTTTAAAHHHHH!"

You almost feel bad for him. You thought for sure that would kill him but- he's still alive?! What should you do?

>Try to help the camel
>Wait for him to die

Finish him. Cleaver to the neck to put him out of his misery. The Camel is gonna die regardless if we help him or not, so lets go help our friend.

By coup de gracin his punk ass.

He's too far gone- you start to look around the room- where are the knives around here? Kemuri's foot blade, maybe?

But by the time you find it, it's too late. The Camel died after almost a minute with a hook in his brain. You get the feeling almost any other animal would have died in seconds from that- but he lasted almost a whole minute. He really was tough.

You find Kemuri curled up in the corner of the room, shivering. He wasn't watching the fight after a certain point it seemed; he was focused on trying not to freeze.

You go to him with his prosthetic leg and before you put it on he puts his hand on your shoulder.

"W-w-w-wait. Wait a second, K-Kuchi..." He says, shivering and chattering his fangs. "B-before you woke up, that guy was s-s-saying that you... attacked a herbivore? Is that t-true? Is that where this meat came from, Kuchi?"

Dude was crazy and kept smothering me in blood. The meat drunk got me and I was lucky enough that he shoved a heart in my mouth. Hope hes ok.
What do we do about the camel? Do we...eat him? Bury him?
>>
>>4562748
Nah we sell his ass on the black market, that's some big money there. We get paid, and the evidence is disposed of, just got to remove anything that can identify him

Head, hands, feet, scars, tattoos.
>>
>>4562741
>Tell the truth
Including the part where the dude kept trying to treat us like some weird experiment by shoving the heart into our face and then trying to choke us out...and ultimately, we had the self-control to not go after him.

Basically, we didn't attack him, but we were pretty fuckin' close.
>>4562752
Who the hell is going to buy camel meat?
>>
>>4562820
Lots of people, camel hump is apparently a delicacy in the real world. Also if we make it cheap enough addicts will buy anything
>>
>>4562821
It's a delicacy in the same way frog eyes are an delicacy, an weird starving peasant tried it in the middle ages, didn't die, and now hipsters eat it.

Also, kuchi doesn't know who that dude is, but it's pretty obvious he's not just an rando. Connecting this to the goat wouldn't be hard.

If we try to sell him, we'd be just outing our presence right? It's better to get rid of his body in a more normal way instead of just eating him or some shit, right? I don't know, we literally got run out of the meat market by a lion last time.
>>
>>4562824
Send the meat to the Lions? might be a way to let us get out GAINS without getting the shit beat out of us
>>
>>4562827
I don't think that's going to help, the shishigumi aren't just pissed off at something we did as much as their boss decided he didn't like hyenas and banned them.

They can get live corpses to predate, an dead thug of theirs is not really going to be a great gift.
>>
>>4562829
What if we attach a poem saying how great lions are? I dunno, eating the guy our self seems psychotic and just burying it seems like a waste.
Though selling it could lead to trouble, we could just sell it as mystery meat kababs to one of the stands
>>
>>4562830
I'm not saying eat the guy though. And i'm not saying burying either. I mean, burying could work, but i don't know any place that wouldn't just lead to it being traced back to us if found.

There's probably a better way to dispose of the body right? That's not eating or burying. For example, you could buy hydrochloric acid. You can actually buy those on hardware stores to remove stains from tile and porcelain. Kemuri's got an gym, so buying some wouldn't be suspicious either.

I mean, i don't feel bad for the guy, but just chopping him up feels...bad, i guess. This is the first time kuchi's killed someone, too, even if it was in self-defense
>>
>>4562834
Yeah, true, but the easiest way to dispose of the evidence is sell the guy for meat. Acid strong enough to eat through meat and bone is some nasty shit.
Shit we could just dump the body in the edge of the black alley market and let nature take its course
>>
>>4562835
We could, but that's also very risky. Aside from the chance of being seen, we've got our prints all over this dude. If someone were to go through it, they'd trace it back to us no time.

It's better than the other options, but like i said, unless we've got an way to make sure we're not screwed over immediately, it's dangerous.

As for the acid, it's easy to find one that can do that. Hydrochloric acid, which is used to clean tiles and bricks and shite, is sold in hardware stores. Hell, i'm pretty sure that if we wanted to go even further we could get the pure stuff, considering kemuri has a business license (he does, right? for the gym)
>>
>>4562752
Honestly wouldn't recommend selling the meat. That's begging to get our ass kicked from competitors and the local mob.

>>4562824
I agree with the part about removing skin. Cut him up into pieces, toss the skin, no one will have to know.

>>4562827
The lion literally hates us and we would be shilling on their turf. Not a wise course of action.

>>4562830
>poem
just why even try?

>eating the guy our self seems psychotic
He tried killing us and he's already dead. Can't really say we or any carnivore isn't psychotic if they eat meat. That includes our friend and ex-almost-gf.
>>
>>4562837
Yeah but then you have to stash the boys while you get the acid, then it takes awhile to melt up the corpse. Not sure how long but it takes a bit
>>
>>4562837
>>4562840
Seriously why not eat the dead camel? Why would he have problems eating the camel dude now when he's already eaten part of a herbivores leg in the market, a spread of the rabbit's organs, and that one heart? More meat means more power to Kuchi and friends. Plus, Kuchi is gonna need all the sick gains he can get so it's harder for the Shinigami's to kill him.
>>
>>4562843
Cause it's one thing to accidentally kill a guy, it's a whole nother thing this store his corpse for consumption
>>
>>4562741
>Tell the truth
Like >>4562748 and >>4562820 says
The goat was gonna give the meat to us for free, we wondered if there was a catch, the goat was nuts, we had just enough restraint for him to escape, he said we could have the meat, etc etc
>>
>>4562843
Because it's not the right thing to do™

Also,
>>4562839
Why cut the skin? The skin is the easiest part to dissolve. Just dissolve everything in hydrochloric acid and say it was used to clean up the locker room's tiles or some shit. What are they going to do, inspect it?
>>
>>4562847
>>4562851
Like with the rabbit? I think there might some left overs in the fridge. The whole universe of Beastar is morbid, but the ungulate yakuza isn't going to wait on moral quandaries. The camel isn't going to call back, which means they'll be sending tougher goonies to kill us, possibly a carnivore two weight classes higher who definitely eat their fill of meat. They know who Kuchi, which is really really bad.

You decide to tell Kemuri the truth. You open the door with him (thought you have to do most of the work) to open the vault door just a crack so you can slip out. It's not easy.

Draping Kemuri in a towel so he can warm up, he thanks you and you tell him the full story.

"Hmm. You know, Kuchi, a lot of predators have close calls like that."
"Yeah?"
"I mean, it's not a GOOD thing but if nobody got hurt, that means something had to go right. If it was fate or your own willpower, something good happened there. Besides, he sounds like a real whack job. I'm just glad you didn't go to the back alley market after I told you not to. I was worried that you'd end up in a bodybag if you did that."
"Hehe, yeah."

"...Hey Kuchi."
"Yeah?"
"You know we're going to have to eat him, right? When a herbivore goes missing and no body shows up, the police don't go looking. If you catch my meaning. Bodies in dumpsters attract attention."
"Yeah, I guess..."
"I mean, YOU don't have to eat any, Kuchi. But the rest of us? This is like a godsend. Especially with the meat market still closed to us- we need to ration it out. He's a big one too, so we'll be able to use it for a while."
"...You ever had camel before, Kemuri?"
"No! I haven't. I'm guessing you haven't either. I'm going to call a few friends and bring some butchers over here to take care of it for us. I just hope he's not too gamey with all those muscles."
"Haha."
"...You did good today, kid. You saved my ass."
"We saved each other's asses, I think."
"Well, all's well that ends well, I guess."

Story will resume some time tomorrow.

It's been a few days since you were attacked by JOE CAMEL and nearly killed by him. You let your eye heal up and went on a meat fast for a few days before doing this, just in case, but you've finally decided to go to the hospital.

Even thought you're worried about risking exposure to yourself or your... meat eating activities, you still can't believe what happened to you. Your transformation! You end up checking in under a Dr.Fisher, and after taking a few X Rays and blood samples, he finally is able to tell you what the hell happened to you.

"Ahh! Kuchi my boy. You have a case of something called "Genetic Regression". Some call it "Devolution" as well, but I personally think those terms have a negative connotation. So instead, I use the term "ancestral adaptation". Essentially, the genes from your ancestors were unlocked and expressed because of changes in environment and homeostasis. In other words, your body thinks you still live in an environment from your ancestral past, and adapted to it!"

"What do you mean?"

"Did you know that just a few hundred years ago, the planet was much colder? Animals were larger and more adapted to colder climates. You said these changes happened a few days ago, correct? Well, that was when that unusual cold front rolled into town- I have no doubt that there is a connection. Have you changed your diet recently? Eaten healthier? Eaten a lot of protein?"

"Uhhh.."

"Like eggs? And beans?"

"Oh yeah! Lots of eggs... and beans."

"Yes! That could certainly cause it. I should mention this is something that only happens in very pure blooded animals like yourself- even a 1/4th or 1/8th hybrid simply doesn't have enough of the ancestral genes to accomplish this transformation."

"Well, what did I become?"

"Oh! Yes, I was about to get to that. You were a spotted hyena, or Crocuta crocuta. But now, you are the Crocuta crocuta spelaea, or cave hyena! It's quite astounding. Such transformations are rare, but they do happen from time to time!"

You find this all a lot to take in. You've always just felt like... Like yourself. Just a normal hyena. It was only after you ate meat did you start to feel like something else, more like an "adult", and now you feel even more like an... adult. It's like going through puberty all over again, but after one bloody fight with a big camel. You look down at your hands. The new color your body is like is still freaking you out. Every time you look at yourself in the mirror, you can't quite get used to it.

"However, Kuchi. I have two more things to tell you. Good news, and Bad news. Which would you rather hear first?"

>Good News
>Bad News

Gimmie the bad news doc

"The bad news, first." You reply, steadying yourself for what he's about to say.

"Well Kuchi, the BAD news... Is that this change is totally permanent. irreversible. Your growth plates have closed. You'll have to get used to how you look from now on, because that's how you'll be for the rest of your life. But with this comes another problem- your bloodline."

"What do you mean?"

"Well... How do I put this? You know how strict the pedigree authority is.. You don't count as a spotted hyena anymore. You're a different "breed" now. Don't get me wrong, you are still a 100% pure Spotted Hyena, but any children you have with a spotted hyena girl have a chance to be spotted hyenas, or cave hyenas, or a hybrid of the two. This means you don't wouldn't qualify as a couple of the same species. I'm sure a hyena of your age knows about this already- but pure breed couples are given many tax breaks and incentives to reproduce in our society, which keeps the number of hybrid couples low. Unfortunately, Kuchi, you aren't eligible. You'll have to marry for love, and not money, if that makes sense. Of course UNLESS if you find another cave hyena female and qualify as a new breed but... That's not going to happen. I'm sorry Kuchi."

Ouch, that's not something you have thought about for a while. Usually you reserve the girl talk for whenever you have Paimon around. You've been so focused on your training you honestly hadn't thought about it at all.

"And one more thing," The doctor says, leaning in. "Just between you and me, man to man and predator to predator... You're urges are going to get stronger. Sexual, predatory, even just scratching an itch. It's going to be harder to ignore. Creatures of the past had stronger instincts then we do, Kuchi."

"BUT! On the upside, the GOOD news is that your body is greatly enhanced! You've probably already noticed it, but a high resistance to the cold and thicker fur. It might get a lot hotter in the summer, but you can shave it off! You also have stronger muscles and bones, and even stronger jaws. Your immune system is also much stronger; did you know most animals in modern times can't drink from natural rivers or streams without getting sick? Yeah- no resistance to the pathogens. But you? You've got an amazing immune system now! You probably won't suffer from a cold or flu for the rest of your adult life, Kuchi. Hell, if you do, come by my office and I'll pay for your cough syrup myself, haha."

You aren't exactly sure how to feel. While you never thought about your future that much; the idea of being a hyena house husband seems even less achievable now. Guess you weren't cut out for a boring life. But all those advantages you gained seemed to be worth it! At least, it explained everything that happened in the freezer. But if your urges are stronger too, you'll need to start being extra careful.

"So... what should I do?" You ask the doctor.

He blinks. "Just live your life, Kuchi."

You are now MR GROUNDER again. And you are now VERY STRESSED.

You called up Camel Joe one week ago to take care of a little “problem” in the form of a Hyena that attacked FACTORY, your main producer of meat to sell on the black market. Your group is very small, made of herbivores. Joe, or SECURITY as was his codename, was the glue that kept you together and, more importantly, safe. He was the one who kept the wolves at bay, so to speak. And without him taking care of your problems, you just know Kenji is going to keep being unreliable and having panic attacks again.

But it's taken him a FULL WEEK to kill this fucking hyena and you're pissed off about it. He's going to come knocking on your door asking where to bury a body, you just know it.

And then, right on time, your door knocks. Dammit! You storm right over there, not even bothering to check your cameras so you can give them FUCKING CAMEL a piece of your mind.

Wait. That's not Joe. Those are lions.

There are fucking lions at your office. And you just let them in. The younger one props the door open with his elbow.

“Hey,” the older one with glasses says. “Let's have a chat.”

That's not good. Like, at all.

Also, Koochi's an Cave Hyena now? Those preyed upon horses and bisons and shit. That's pretty cool. And while we had already discussed about having koichi date other types of hyena for obvious reasons (you know, like not being an weakling 'home husband' type), kinda sucks that any kid that kuchi'd have wouldn't be able to unlock ancestral gene superpowers. Or would it? I mean, he said only very pure right? And honestly, i still don't think dating an spotted hyena...or a cave hyena, even if we found one, would be a good idea...you know, cause of the stuff.
>>
>>4563912
You know, i've re-read it, and i actually noticed i was wrong about something there is, in fact, a chance for them to be cave hyenas, straight from birth too.

I guess that's good for them, cave hyenas are generally tougher. Doesn't matter much in the end i suppose, we just need to hope we can find kuchi an nice hyena waifu (preferably not spotted)
>>
>>4563912
Any hyenas from an upper class would kill to have our genes in their genepool. Even the chance of a half-cave hyena is in their interest if mental accuity is retained.
>>
>>4564217
Maybe, but that's not the part that matters, though. Marrying for money's not a good idea.

It is cool that if he does find an nice hyena girl, then there's a chance of their children being cave hyenas.
>>
>>4564223
We also need to devise new strategies for handling our increased urges.
Oddly enough we kept our composure during the Camel fight without going full "MEAAAT" before or after.

Might be able to train out our meat lust for combat lust. Or utilize self-harm/tech/conditioning to handle it.

>>4564241
Legosi operated on pure autism and family angst.

We'd need a reason to reach that level of restraint. As it is, we need restraint protocols for our new level of instinct.

Whether it's a spike bracelet we can pull a cord on to induce pain when we have a predator moment

Or an emergency milk of magnesia ration to induce puking when we have a strong desire for living meat.

Whatever it is, we should be proactive considering our instinct drive is apparently significantly higher.

>>4564285
No guarantee meat rations would satiate us. Predator mode seems to only be abated when we are FULL.

The alternative is making us want not to eat at all, IE: make it a habit to take something shitty when we want to eat a living being.

Depending on the times, we could always follow the rumor of the meat market psychiatrist. See if we can find a solution there.
>>
>>4564288
We could just make a fuckle ton of money in fights and get a shit ton of meat

We don't really have the horniness of Legosi, so we shouldn't have any qualms about eating dead meat.

And that Camel will help a lot in the beginning

>>4564302
Don't think we'll really have to deal with horniness in general.

Maybe there are pills for that. Maybe we can make little bite sized meat jerky stripes we can stealth eat?

>>4564241
what did he do?

>>4564244
I like the milk idea. Maybe a stealthy armband shock collar with a little manual remote in a pocket?

>>4564288
What if we just eat lots beans and eggs? Would we really go feral if we already feel full?
>>
>>4564615
That's the thing though, it's not just about protein...last time i checked, predators just went crazy with meat because that was what they're supposed to eat, you know. Even bugs aren't enough.

Basically, a predator likes meat because predators evolved to like meat. Eating other stuff is pretty much like a panda's diet...sure you can live with it, but you're not made for it.

“Gentlemen!” You say, nervously rubbing your hands together. “The death of a loved one can be a very stressful time, but our mortuary is closed for today. If you'd come back tomorrow morning I would be more then happy to- HRK”

They lift you up by your collar. The marching inside the building, straight to your office and sit you on the desk.

“My name is Ibuki, and this is Jinma. We're from the Shishigumi lions.” The one with the glasses says, clearly leading the two. “We know all about your meat business, Mr.Grounder. We're interested in bringing you into the back alley meat-market in full. And if you aren't interested, then I have somethin that might convince you...”

He's reaching into his jacket pocket. You feel dread.

Ibuki just put several large wads of cash on the table. You're quite good at counting money quickly, and even from a glance you can tell that's one point five... one point seven... Almost two million yen.

“Consider that a two week advance of your cut.” He says, leaving the money on the table.

Holy shit! Two million yen for two weeks? You struggled to make that much in two months before!

“We have the best transportation, cold storage, and a much larger access to customers then you. This isn't charity- this is business. The new boss of the Shisigumi is buying up or taking out all of the satellite businesses and meat markets. Since you offer a unique opportunity for gathering raw materials, you're being brought into the fold. Soon, we're going to be the dominant faction in the back alley market. If you remain loyal to the boss, then you'll share in this. Understood?”

They turn to leave, you breathing a sigh of relief. You can't believe it!

“Oh and- one more thing. No more hiring out your own security. If you have any problems at all, with carnivores or with the police, you contact us. We'll take care of it from now on.”

You nod, the two lions finally leaving your office- and leaving you with a fat stack of cash and a brand new employer.

Your name is KENJI the GOAT. You're a professor working out the university, and are an integral part of a SIDE BUSINESS of selling MEAT illegally to carnivores from the herbivore corpses donated to science. Your codename is FACTORY. It has been TWO WEEKS since you were attacked by KUCHI the spotted hyena.

You told your boss about it, but it didn't make you feel any better. In fact, it made you feel worse. You just know that Joe killed him. You have finally returned to work after all this time, your nerves are getting to you. For the past several weeks of doing this, the stress has been getting to you. You can only harvest a tiny amount of meat, and you're so worried about being caught- and who you're dealing with! You thought giving some away for free to your ex-carnivore girlfriend Tora and then later Kuchi would help ease your burdens, but it didn't! Especially after your stressful attack. Being alone in a room full of dead bodies constantly isn't good for your mind. You're like you're at your limit!

But just then, you hear someone coming- no, TWO people! They're about to enter the morgue. Nobody is supposed to be down here but you! What do you do?

You're not going to be an easy target. You quickly grab the biggest knife here and duck away behind an elephant corpse.

And then they come in. It's a pigeon and an iguana. Neither are predators. Thank God.

“Ohhhhh this place is amazing! Sugoi!” You hear the iguana say, practically pushing the older pigeon out of the way as she slides into the workshop.

You stand up, these two must be visitors to the university. “Hello there, I am Professor Kenji. This area is off limits to guests- are you prospective students?” Both of them jump in surprise from seeing you, and you get a better look at what the bigger one is carrying. Is that... a cooler?

“Ahh, Kenji. Nice to meet you. We're your new interns.” The pigeon says, handing over a very valid looking laminated card.

“I didn't request any-”

“No no, Kenji. We're your NEW interns. We work for the same people now. I do hope you understand.”

Oh. They're here for the meat business- you weren't really told this from Mr.Grounder at all! You barely even wanted to come back to work after that Kuchi incident. He told you that the Shishigumi had taken over now, but you weren't sure what that meant... You were worried they'd send a bunch of big scary lions to off you down here one quiet night.

“Oh... ok. I understand. But with three people, the chance of suspicion is much higher! Are you going to fill that entire cooler?” You ask, pointing to it. “The ashes of the next cremation will be inconsistent with-”

The iguana girl waves to get your attention. “Look! We've got it all figured out. Coal! Herbivores don't have the noses to tell the difference between carbons like this. We'll measure and keep the weights consistent.”

“Oh... Ok.”

You get to work with them, getting your hands dirty as you start to package, slice, and prepare meat. The truth is that you feel... a lot better. Having more people here, even just working in silence like this is such a relief. The atmosphere and silence in here was getting to you- but working like this? You think you can handle this.

You are back to being KUCHI again. It has been officially ONE MONTH since you got forcefully kicked out of the back alley market. And you are currently QUITE HUNGRY.

You were just told by your friends that the ban against Hyena has now officially been lifted- apparently a change in management in the Shishigumi lions. About time.

You have been diagnosed with having transformed into a CAVE HYENA and what comes with it, and the doctor was not lying. This past few weeks have been... interesting. Your newfound appetite has been really eating into your budget and time. You had to get a part time job and couldn't train quite as hard- and that was only for the non-meat part of your diet! You've hit a plateau again, and without meat you'll struggle to make any progress.

KEMURI the brown hyena, as well as your trainer, had rationed out the meat of CAMEL JOE until now- and it's just run out. Now, you can finally get some meat. Even from here, the smell is nearly driving you nuts. Your stomach grumbles impatiently.

However, you don't have an unlimited budget. You're going to need to plan out what you're going to get. You're also a bit on your toes. You know that this place is open to your kind now, but you kind of have a BAD FEELING about this. Probably best not to spend too much time here.

Oh man, this place is great! You walk down the main street and see high quality meat everywhere... Even a single cut of this stuff would be way above your budget. But damn, it looks good! You can see a nice cut of cow up on a hook that's just... damn. Delicious. You've never had any criminal inclinations in your life before (well, except for eating meat), but you've never been as tempted to steal something as you were right now.

You gotta get your head together! You decide to start asking around. You need lower quality stuff, at an affordable price, that will last. You keep a hand on your pocket and fasten up your backpack straps- you gotta keep an eye out for danger.

The easiest way to get information is just to ask for it. You approach a big polar bear who is... shivering? Why would a polar bear ever be cold?

"Excuse me-" you begin, but from the far off look in his eye you realize- he's shaking from meat drunkedness. Maybe meat withdrawl. Aren't polar bears the most aggressive kind of bear, by far? You decide to leave him alone and try to find somebody who has their wits about them, maybe somebody who knows the market well.

Pretty soon, you stumble across a shadowy alleyway with some guy pissing in it! It's pretty funny. You figure whoever it is must be very comfortable in the back alley market, since they're pissing two steps from the main street. You decide to wait until they are finished before asking them.

"Excuse me-" You say, as soon as you hear the zipper come up.

"What the HELL do you want?" The figure says, spinning around. Oh my God. It's Free.

"Oh! YOU!" Free says suddenly. He walks up to you, you practically lock up. "You're that kid I punched out a while back, right? Listen, awfully sorry about that. It was the Boss's orders, you know? Ho ho." He says. He brushes off your shoulder as though doing you a favor.

"Oh uhh... yeah. Haha." You reply. Oh my God. He doesn't know your name.

"I mean, you probably never shopped at the market before, right? Just old enough to start going, right as the ban hit? Whatcha looking for? Probably a poor college kid, right?"

"Haha, yeah."

You're sweating bullets. You decide to let him do all the talking. He points down the street.

"Follow this road and go to the yellow lantern shop. The Shishigumi have lots of byproducts made into sasuges or secondary cuts for real cheap. We ALWAYS welcome your business!" He explains.

"Oh- yeah. Thanks. Haha." You say, marching stiffly away from him. Holy shit, did that really just happen?

"You know... you're kinda tall for a Hyena."

Oh no. You stop in your tracks.

"Your name wouldn't happen to be... Kuchi, would it?"

Still, the guy probably knows its us from our response. I don't think Kuchi has a good enough pokerface quite yet.

You realize there's no easy way out of this. You're going to stand up- and be proud. You were scared, and weak, just a month ago. Now, you're not. You're not the same person anymore.

You breathe, then turn around. You ball a fist and flex your arm.

"Yeah, that's me. My name is Kuchi. What of it?"

The lion looks like you just hit him on the face. He doesn't say anything, instead just sputtering. You're nothing like that little boy that he punched in the face just a month ago. After a second of staring him down, you turn around and start to walk away.

"Hey, wait!"

Free runs up behind you and puts a hand under your arm, preventing your easy escape. He doesn't hurt you though, just letting you know you can't just walk away.

"The boss wants to talk to you." He says, tugging you towards a different direction. You think about how you could wriggle out, or even punch him in the face when he's not looking but... no. You can't.

The truth is, you can't really fight the Shishigumi. Or rather, you don't really want to. All of your Hyena friends- hell, all of your carnivore friends in general, are talking about how they Shishigumi are taking over the whole back alley market and meat business. You're going to need meat for the rest of your life. Making enemies with them isn't going to do any favors. And you figure that he could have killed you already if you were on the shitlist- at least you hope. Free lets go of your arm- you're just following him now. It seems you earned enough respect that he won't bully you around anymore- but you're not getting out of this meeting with the "new boss".

Eventually, as you walk with him, he brings you to a strange stone tower- the archway over the top has the Kanji for lion on it. This must be their hideout.

You manage to wrangle a few answers out of free.

>Ask Free why you're being taken
"Because of something you did against the clan. The Shishigumi, I mean. Disrupting the meat market activities is serious, and Louis-Sama is very protective of the herbivores who work for him."

Louis huh? He must be a pretty important lion. You don't have time to ask more about him.

>Ask Free what is going to happen to you
"The boss has strict orders to not kill you- he just wants to talk. So I wouldn't worry about that. But as far as that goes? I wouldn't know."

Hmm, that's all the useful information you get out of him. By the time you get to the Shishigumi's main meeting room, you finally get to see the new boss. And your eyes nearly pop out of your skull.

THAT'S THE NEW BOSS OF THE SHISHIGUMI!?

He's a deer! And he's younger then you! There is no way he should be out of highschool. How is HE in charge of a group of murderous lions!?

"Boss!" Free says, grabbing your arm without warning again. "This is that Hyena kid- Kuchi! I knocked his punk ass out like a month ago, hahaha. It's the same guy."

Fuck you free.

"Hmm. Glad you're here. Let's talk about this- AFTER dinner." Louis says. Now you're being treated to a meal too? You sit at the table totally surrounded by a bunch of lions. This is too weird.

You are currently eating dinner with the lions of the Shishigumi. Did they really have to sit Free right across from you?

The meal is very quiet. The sounds of snapping teeth and popping muscles is very common among meat eaters, much noisier then quiet herbivores sipping leaves. Though you feel very uncomfortable here. You've never eaten meat in front of a herbivore- well, except for Kenji you guess, but that doesn't count! However when you glance up, you realize that Louis is eating meat too. What the hell, is he some kind of hybrid? A mutant? Or is he some psychopath deer?!

Louis is the one to break the silence. “I remember that we were taught at school that, in nature, lions are great hunters and hyenas are cowardly scavengers who steal their meals- their jaws only fit for cracking open the left over bones. But modern research shows it was actually the opposite; that hyenas are great hunters and lions are lazy bullies who use their size and strength to steal hyena kills away from them. Hmm. I wonder which one is true.”

Damn, he speaks so candidly about carnivores, even around lions who he is supposed to be leading!

“I guess we'll find out soon enough, because you two-” He says, pointing a bloodied fork at both you and Free, “-are going to fight each other.”

“WHAT?!” You both exclaim, standing up and yelling in near unison.

“Calm down!” The lion with glasses next to Louis says. He seems like the right hand man. You and Free both slink back- you guess Free had just as little idea about this as you did.

“Come on, Free, Kuchi- don't deny it. You've been itching to fight each other since that day a month ago. Free, you admitted that you punched Kuchi back then when working for the last boss, right? And Kuchi, you were driven to near starvation, forcing you to attack a herbivore meat seller in desperation because of the last boss's regressive anti-hyena policy, right?”

Louis's logic make senses but just seems... really weird.

“Now- excuse me for a moment.” He says, leaving the room. Ibuki, the one with glasses, points at you.

“Don't try anything! Wait until the Boss gets back.”

we're probably not going to get out of this without a fight, though. let's just hope our ancestral powers can help us defeat him.

>You ask Ibuki why you're fighting
He shrugs.

"We use many methods to enforce loyalty and to punish misbehavior. If anything, I'd say he wants to gauge Free's combat ability. He's been testing a lot of us to see our limits."

>You tell Free to wash his hands, but politely

"My hands!? What do you mean! We just ate- my hands are clean!" He looks down at his fingers for a moment. "Hold on, I'll be right back." And then he gets up to go to the bathroom. Kind of gross.

...

In a few short minutes, Louis returns. Sitting in his chair, the lions make way for you and Free to stand in the center of the room. Free assumes a stance, bouncing back and forth on his heels.

Louis takes a swill from his wine glass. "Hyenas have a stronger bite, but Lions have much stronger claws- so we'll say no biting or clawing. This is fists only. If either of you try to pull out a weapon or run away- I'll kill you myself."

You're now standing across from Free who you are, apparently, about to fight. What do you do?

Hm...let's be wise here.

Cave Hyenas were pretty fucking strong...their legs were the strongest out of any hyena because they dragged their prey into caves. They used to hunt shit like whooly mammoths.

It would be wise to, rather than rushing in blindly, prepare for an opening to strike quickly. We've trained our upper body a lot. So don't charge in and get another slap, but still go on the offensive.

Taking a slightly more defensive approach, you size each other up. You take stock of your advantages against his.

You certainly have an upper body advantage, though he has a height and weight advantage over you. Lions are big, after all. Your body is more top heavy, and his is more lean and equally distributed. Your biggest advantage, your bite, is being nullified here due to Louis's rules.

As you size Free up, your nerves are getting to you. You give off a small Hyena cackle, perhaps to intimidate him. He responds with a throaty Lion's roar- it's not enough to scare you, but it certainly nullifies your own intimidation tactic.

Meanwhile, Louis the Red Deer sighs. This predator vs predator posturing really is tiresome.

You rush Free. You need to get into his space in order to nullify any reach he has over you! As you get close, you throws out a slow jab to your face, which you quickly dodge on approach. He seems surprised for a moment- as though not expecting your skill to have grown. This is exactly what Kemuri taught you!

You flip around and give him a hook to his head, which he pulls away from to minimize the damage. Then, he twirls his body enough to throw a Taekwondo style kick to your shoulder- at least it didn't land on your head. His legs are going to be a problem.

Finally, you resume your stance right in front of him- within striking range. He pulls his leg back and resumes defense, but he can't pull away to keep you at bay. This is your time to shine! How are you going to assault him from here?

Hm...on one hand, bullet punches are cool. On the other hand, Free might use the extended attacks to kick us - he doesn't need them to block, so he could do both.

Honestly, i don't know. Sure, an strong punch to the nose would definitely deal some damage...but then again, bullet punches.

I honestly don't know, anyone have an idea? Kuchi is an upper body fighter, after all.

Instead of unleashing your BULLET PUNCH, you decide to keep it on backup.

You want to get a good hit in on his sensitive nose, right in his face. But how to get an opening? He has his guard up-

There! You see your target, and you move your head forward, just to bow your legs. Free punches towards where your head was about to be, and you sneak in your punch right to his face.

You manage to hit Free in the snout, he growls out as you do- you think his whiskers helped him move his head back so your attack was not as effective as you wanted- cats really are powerful in close combat. You still gave him a good wallop though. Free puts his hand on your chest and shoves you back, giving him back his reach advantage.

Still, you feel good about that exchange.

You stare daggers at Free as he puts his hands up apologetically.

"Oops, Sorry about that. I just sharpened my claws today so I'm not used to the fit. I'll retract them fully, see? Won't happen again."

You can see his tail wagging like a kitty cat. Fucking cheater.

You take off your shirt.

"You ripped up my shirt!" You say, holding it in your hand. This should give you enough time to distract him- and you do.

Flinging your shirt at his face, the fabric covers Free's face, and perhaps his whiskers too, so that he can't dodge out of the way.

You can't help but let out a laugh as you angle him right in the way. You don't WANT to do anything tactical. Because you are ANGRY.

"BULLET PUNNNNNCH!"

You pummel Free's face right as his tears the shirt away, connect many rapid fire, full power blows right to his face. He yowls in pain as blood shots from his nose. He falls backwards to the floor, taking a moment to get himself back up. You don't jump on him- the lions around you would probably just pull you off.

Free shakily beings to pull himself up off the floor, turning his head to look at you. He looks like a mess, his nose bloody, face bruised, scarred eye almost shut again- swollen. You did a number on him, but not enough to knock him out.

“Hehe. Damn, you punch like a rhinoceros, kid. Learning the bullet punches in a month? You must have trained under a really good boxer. But you want to know something about bullet punches?”

Free stands up and, with a quick hop, raises a leg.

“I CAN DO THAT TOO! BULLET KICKS!”

Oh shit! Free is unleashing a volley of powerful kicks right at you from out of your striking distance! What do you do?

You go around to the left, going around his right foot. As you quickly dodge the kicks, you see Free turn his head. He begins to put his foot down, and setting you in his sights.

With a rapid turn, he launches a backwards spinning kick right at your face with his left foot- but you catch it! You expected him to do that, his movement was too slow. The bullet kicks probably tired him out more then your bullet punches tired you out.

You now have Free's foot in your hand. You have the upper hand.

You take Free's foot and twist it- deciding to throw him to the ground where you can pummel him to finish the fight. As you gets pinned down, you come forward with his leg, about to push down on top of him. He almost looks a bit sad, or even a bit scared. Then his faces changes-

“SHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!”

You don't even feel the cut. Your body seems to react faster then you do, pulling back your head to avoid his fingers. You step back off Free when you feel the warmth seep into the fur on your neck. Free hit you with the tips of all his fingers at once, slicing through the air like a blade. The cutting force of all his claws were angled together in a sharp line, almost like he was cutting you with a sword.

That was nothing like when he scratched you earlier. Earlier he was just cheating. This... this is a deadly technique. If he would have been just a few inches deeper, or if your Hyena neck wasn't as thick as it was...

Is this some kind of martial art? You have to ready yourself, you hear him coming. His eyes have changed- he's going totally feral.

“Stop!” Louis suddenly yells, standing up from his chair. “Ibuki! Dolph! Stop them, they're going to kill each other!”

That doesn't seem to have deterred Free. The lions are starting to move to stop this, but Free and his deadly martial art are coming right for you. He has a murderous look in his eye.

>Run and wait for the lions to stop Free
>Use legwork to dodge his attacks

>Use legwork to dodge his attacks

Hey, the fight's already over, and if anything Free acting like a little bitch about it cements his shame and our victory.

Also, I'm proud of Kuchi, best Yeen. We've grown so much, being able to take down Free.

>>4570183
Hes going feral and deadly.

Means he's going full killing intent without guarding himself.

Should be able to feint him and then deliver a gut punch to end all gut punches. Would probably have to trade a slash on our back, but it's a good trade for a fight ending ko gut punch.

>>4570209
Actually there are chairs here. We can use a chair to extend reach and guard until the other lions wrangle him.

Chair? Chair!

You quickly scan the area to find some kind of furniture- or anything really- to hold Free at bay.

Wait, what chairs? Weren't the lions kneeling on the floor earlier when they watched the fight? Were you looking for Louis's chair?! It's WAY too far away now!

Oh shit. He's right behind you now, isn't he? You don't have time to wait for backup. You gotta do something NOW.
>>
>>4570322
Is this a suggestion or do you have a follow up post?
lmao looks like he's going for a vertical slash. Turn around, grab him by the wrist, and punch him in the throat. Or dick. Whichever is easier.
>>
>>4570324
Pretty much this. We're top-heavy, so punching him in the chest should be able to stop his attack for now.
>>
>>4570322
Run forwards to dodge him. As he's recovering from punching thin air, dickpunch him.
>>
>>4570384
He's already got his hand up, we can't dodge THAT fast. He's an leaner lion, we're an hyena. We'd just be caught by the back.

Also we already tried a dickpunch once, we don't need to do it again. We're trying to stop him, not just cause pain.

>>4570324
This. Remember the basics etc

Throatpunch sounds good
If we were a wrestler/grappler I would say now is a good time for a head-in-arm throw to move into a pin, but alas we are a boxer

You twirl around as fast as you can and catch his arm. His deadly technique stopped, you see Free's eyes shoot open in surprise. He's still feral but-

His eyes narrow. He's not finished. His other hand!

“SHOOOOOOOOOOOOO-”

You punch his other hand as hard as you can. You can feel his claws piercing your knuckles, it hurts, but he can't generate the deadly cutting power of his technique head on like that- you've stopped his technique. You feel some of his fingers break. Free may be bigger then you, perhaps even stronger overall, but his upper body cannot match yours. Your fists are stronger then his.

You take your bloodied hand and pull back a fist, Free sees it. With his hands both disabled, he can't block your final attack.

WHAM!

You punch Free in the throat. You feel him wheeze as the breath is forced from his body, globs of spittle coming from his mouth as he is taken down.

Free lies on the floor, totally out. You're unsure if he's totally unconscious, or just unwilling to continue with how badly he's been hurt. It will be a while before he gets up again.

The Shishigumi lions jump in to separate you two; but seeing as the fight is over, they push you aside and call in some medical help. You pick up your shirt off the floor before you are stopped by Louis and his right hand man, Ibuki.

“Free told me he was the strongest fighter among the Shishigumi. If that is the case, then he either greatly overestimated himself, or, the Shishigumi are going to need a lot more work. Here. Take this card.” Louis hands you a card with an usual design. It's like a business card, but no contact information, name, phone number. It's just a symbol.

“That's the card that represents the Shishigumi. We might have need of your muscle some time. We'll call you.” Louis says, before turning and leaving. You're not surprised at how uncaring he seemed to be, but you guess you can't be too upset that you beat up a gangster in their hideout and you aren't about to be killed for it... at least you don't think.

Soon after, you are patched up by a small bodied carnivore medic. “Sorry we can't let you see a REAL doctor, but two bloodied men walking through the back alley market? Too big a target, and too suspicious.” He bandages up your wounds on your neck, chest, and your hand too.

“Haayyy. Kooosshii.”

Somebody is seriously slurring your name. When you turn your head- you realize it's Free! How the hell is he standing? You see his face is swollen up really bad, and he's even got an oxygen tank. The hand of his you destroyed is totally bandaged up- he probably won't be using it for a while.

“Kan vee hawk?”

>Yeah, sure.
>No, fuck off.
>>
>>4571158
>Yeah, Sure
It was an honorable fight until the end. We also did one fucking hell of a number on him.
>>
>>4571165
"Until the end" as in, until he went feral and used his claws.
>>
>>4566946
>Yeah, sure

He's disabled at the moment. He fought dirty, we fought slightly dirty. Worth the talk.

>>4571158
>Yeah, Sure

We did a number on the bastard, huh?

Free sits down besides you.

“Shhhoowwy sworr hying hu kill hue.” He says, motioning to his busted up hand. “I lernned ha hiller balm affer daa wolf bead us all up an da ol' hoss waz gilled.”

You think he's apologizing for trying to kill you, and mentioning that he learned a “killer palm” technique after the old boss was killed. The killer palm must have been what he was using against you.

“Bud.” He says, turning to you. “Chime NOD sowwy fur beadin' oar assss da firss hime whe met!” He says, pointing his finger at you angrily. You can barely tell from under the oxygen mask.

“Ur sdill a bunk! Hue bead me up in frond oaf all da boyyzz! Hwe aind frens bidge! HUCK HUE!”

And then you picks up his oxygen tank and storms off. Well, you think he meant it, in his own way.

In the days past your battle with Free, you and all your Hyena friends are now free to use the back alley market. With no shortage of meat, your training can continue at any pace you chose- though Kemuri soon tells you that you've mostly surpassed him in every way- now you just go see him for a few pointers or to hang out with your gym buddies.

...Of course, you didn't ACTUALLY solve the problem of the meat shortage. You guess that deer kid killed the last Shishigumi boss, lifted the ban, and you kinda didn't do anything. You guess your hero's journey didn't really fit in with what real life had in store for you, but you feel like you've grown so much as a person, and as a Hyena. Both literally and figuratively.

You decide to train a little less and socalize a little more, spend time with friends, try to find some better employment (you didn't realize just how much cave hyenas ate, until you became one!) and start thinking about getting back into the game. But what kind of ladies are you after? Well, if you want to talk about that, you can always ask Paimon. Haha.

Maybe it's not perfect, but hey, all's well that ends well, right?

Hey everyone, thanks for playing my quest! I didn't really have anything planned past the rematch with Free, and more importantly, for the amount of time I had to really run this quest. I didn't expect to enjoy drawing so much and, while demanding, made the updates fun. Thanks for all the fun votes and suggestions and the kind words of encouragement.

I might continue this quest eventually; either with Kuchi's story or as a new character in the Beastars universe. I might even run a non-Beastars quest at some point, but I'll probably change my name since “FurryWeeb' doesn't fit that well for anything else, lol. Unfortunately, unexpected things happened in my life (literally today) that means I might be very busy with work or legal shit in the near future, and may not have the time or energy to continue, so I'm glad we ended up here so punctually.

Anyway, thanks again and I hope you enjoyed Beastars quest!

Very fun. Thank you for the quest.
Keep it up Furry Weeb. The only time furry didn't end up degenerate.

This quest was fucking amazing. I genuinely was not expecting it to be this good. Thanks for running man, I await the continuation, should it ever occur.

I suppose that's da end, then. The quest was pretty good and i hope we get to see ya soon.

>>4571595
Kiyomi's more of an sister figure than a gf if we're going to be honest here. Like others have said too, you have the whole problem with female spotted hyenas when it comes to romance.

If Kuchi ever returns, we'll probably deal with that kind of stuff, but i'm fairly certain that, unless something happens, we're probably going to be looking towards some other type of hyena.

But hey, who knows.
