❝ Ever since he heard from Cole and Lloyd about the prey thieves that had entered Thunderlands territory a few days ago, he didn't quite know what to think. He never had to worry about that during his time outside the clans; the land was free reign for everyone, and whoever was the quickest on their feet and stealthiest in shadow was able to keep what they could, no matter if that meant other creatures got less. Of course, that didn't mean he thought stealing was right. Thunderlands had earned their place in Agrelos somehow, and it was just cruel for other groups to dismiss that and step through their borders with the intention of harm. The worst thing, though? Those prey stealers hurt his brothers, and he felt guilt that he hadn't been there with them, so he was glad to do something to make their efforts to protect their new home not go to waste.
Jay didn't hesitate to approach a group of lounging Thunderlanders, seeing that they probably hadn't much to do at the current moment. "Hey guys, I'm leading a hunting patrol just to check if we have enough food after those Brigade guys came in and tried to steal some," he began to explain, "anyone wanna go with me?". ❞
