Notes: Groupings of Fangtooths are known as a Coven.
They do not actually eat or bite people, but do require the nourishment of red meat with every meal.
There are rumors that biting other Val’Terrans & drinking their blood will cause abnormal mutations in the Fangtooth. Rumor Confirmed: Fangtooths that drink the blood of others develop a condition where their skin becomes extremely sensitive to natural light & their eyes become bloodshot. An insatiable appetite for blood consumes them & controls their lives, as they will stop at nothing until they have their next taste of fresh blood. The name currently being used for these abominations is Banshees.
Fangtooths are normally of the higher class & looked at as being prominent figures in the city.
They are typically store & restaurant owners, political figures, & bankers. Their uncanny ability to be masters of currency lends to them being excellent bankers. Side Note: Fergrams, the largest & most powerful depository in Val’Terra, controlled entirely by Fangtooths, has begun to extend its reach into the Constant world by creating branches inside cities like Paris, London, & Manhattan.
They are starved for power, always looking for ways to better their position & status. They tend to be very wealthy. – As the saying goes, ‘with power, so comes wealth.’
Fangtooths are least affected by the problems most races encounter in the Constant world. Their blood is more adaptable, which allows them move about in the Constant world for longer periods of time without the aid of a Clearing elixir than any other race.
They usually are very even-keeled & calculated, allowing them to remain calm & savvy during confrontations.
Timeless history of hatred of the Razorbacks – The detestation can be traced all the way back to events that originally occurred over 7,000 years ago between the Callas coven & the Boreesh clan; Monahan Callas killed the nephew of Hymore Boreesh in cold blood during a feud over land. Despite efforts to make amends and smooth things over, tensions arose as the Boreesh clan sought revenge for their loss, demanding Monahan’s head. The refusal to do so by the Callas’ ultimately led to an all out war between the two families – all family members were slain with the exception of one from each family, the youngest sons, left with the task of carrying on the story throughout all of Val’Terra.
