Human beings are a strange animal. While their base needs can be less all-consuming than certain other species, they indulge those needs a lot more often and in a lot more creative ways. Still, they're not animalistic, you know. They have logic and reason, morals and modesty and humility. That's why they don't run around fighting, killing, rutting, or gorging themselves like wild beasts.
At least, that is, when they have something separating them and the rest of the animal kingdom.
This little bubble of the multiverse is no longer keeping that status quo. A lucky selection of inhabitants will find themselves a bit wilder than usual. Some might have even taken on animal characteristics, like ears and tails, fur or claws. All of them, however, are focused only on very primal needs: food and water, safety and shelter, mating and protecting mates and offspring. They will do anything, absolutely anything, to protect what they have and take what they want.
Welcome to the jungle, ladies and gentlemen. Things might get a little hairy.
[OOC: This is a variant of the Mating Season meme, where animal nature is not confined to just the sex (not excluding it, of course, just allowing for more). Fighting over territory? Kicking a rogue out of the herd? Stealing another pack's prey, water, or mates? Searching for food/water/shelter? Think very base drives with optional animal parts.
Just a few notes:
-This doesn't follow "traditional" gender/biology roles. Female characters can be alphas, male characters can get pregnant if you wish, and same-sex pairings are perfectly viable.
- If your character has animal characteristics they aren't necessarily locked into traits of that animal. For example, a catgirl and a mouse girl don't have to see each other as predator and prey if you don't want them to.
- You can leave your comment blank or come up with a basic set-up. However, it's probably helpful to put what kind of animal features (if any) your character has.]
