Author's Notes: Thanks go to J, C & RA for their help in brainstorming, conceptualising and polishing my ideas for this fic. Additional thanks go to A & K for their thorough and thoughtful beta jobs done at the last minute when my original beta plans fell through. Any and all errors are my own since I tweaked things some more after going through all of their suggestions.
sealcat, this probably isn't quite what you meant when you prompted creature inheritance, but I was hoping to put a bit of an original spin on the idea. So I hope you enjoy!
