Kurach Maturity & Reproduction
Ah... Well, you gotta understand my history and species. Unlike most other mammals, a Kurach doesn't have her first heat when she's about half-grown and not really capable of bearing young. When she's fully grown and matured, then she has her first heat. There is a natural curiousity we're all born with, but it's not uncommon for us to be asexual or disgusted before then. Kind of a built-in preventative measure in our genetics. I guess you say we can understand kindergarters better for a longer period of time than other species.
When I was on the Meriweather, I often had to deal with grumpy hungover crewman and sometimes pick up their chores when we were in port. So, no, I'm not that fond of excessive drinking.
And then there was the Brelland Seacat! Once the new wore off of me those damned pirates couldn't keep their hands to themselves when we were away from port. I think I've bit more butts than any other Kurach. It's not my favorite topic after my time with those blasted lechers.
The Ferals like to send their cubs out into the wild for a week or so to test what they've learned and what they can accomplish on their own as a coming of age ritual. Mine just happened to come early without the honor and with an extended vacation.
And there might have been some desire to get me killed since they did say I put the whole clan at risk of getting killed a few times. That would be the proper sentence under the Law of Club and Fang. We're not exactly using the "go sit in a quiet place and think of how to get away with it next time" system.
