"I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but WW IV will be fought with sticks and stones.” – Albert Einstein
Cheeta relished her position as the Kauri tribe’s historian. Her natural ability to remember in detail all the known, historical facts handed down from generation to generation by previous storytellers made her a living legacy among her people. As a custodian of lore, she enjoyed a status equal to the grand shaman who provided spiritual counsel to the chief himself. Since spirituality intertwined with the tribe’s history, she was, like the shaman, a respected priestess, identified by a shoulder cloak made from strips of plant fiber sewn tightly together with fine, bone needles. Albatross feathers adorned the cloak, which identified it as a prestigious garment possessing great mana. It was taboo for any tribal member of lesser status to touch Cheeta or her cloak in any way whenever she wore it.
