Hunt Roles

While the Wolves are careful to organize themselves along classic lines, no two Hunts have ever been structured alike. Cats are highly idiosyncratic creatures, and as such the Las Vegas Hunt is much different from any other Hunt anywhere.

The Hunt is led by a Raja and Raj, who are usually, but not always, a mated pair of leopards. The Rajas are ultimately responsible for the health, safety and prosperity of the Hunt, and as such outsiders sometimes think they are the only leopards who take the outside world seriously.

Serving in the same role as the Lukoi's Eranthe is the Turner, named after classic silver screen legend Lana Turner. The male counterpart, serving the same role as the Eros, is the Dean, named after James Dean.

Cats are phenomenally social creatures. Cats who leave the Hunt and go out of contact with their fellows can often be driven half-crazy by the isolation. The Roberts is the cat whose job it is to be the social secretary: to go out and touch base with everyone, to provide company to the isolated, to draw the stragglers on back in, often with nothing more than kind words and a scritch behind the ears. Violent methods tend to be counterproductive: the Roberts' principal tools are compassion and seduction as opposed to tooth and claw. The Roberts is named after Julia Roberts, who rose to stardom playing a hooker with a heart of gold.

The Rajput serves as the Rajas' enforcer, and the Vizier is the Rajas' principal advisor. The Rajput serves to look out for the Hunt's security interests, and the Vizier attends to the business interests. Additionally, the Vizier serves as the point of contact between the Hunt and other preternatural groups.
