Native Lifeforms: Ixtlil[edit]

Shogun is plagued by several species of marine predators, including a fifty meter long Ixtlil. The inhabitants of Shogun, in return, hunt the Ixtlil and several other of the predators.

History and background[edit]

The primary population of Shogun is known as Tecuhtl or wave riders. Most live their entire lives on their fishing boats. The main employer is Feathered Serpent Pharmaceuticals, purchasing the harvested sea plants and Iquehuac around the small, rocky atolls that form the only solid land.
