In the books there weren’t ranks within panther bands (tribes is an online word, they’re called bands in the books), and bands were only about 12 panther girls or less. Given the need for practical organizing and the much larger size/scope of our group, we have many ranked roles and often multiple people in various roles, because people log on at different times so by having multiple people in ranks we generally will have someone around who is of the rank and performs the duties of a particular role. The ranking sister is always in charge of the camp during RP. When there are two sisters of the same rank online, the sister who has held the rank longest is considered the higher rank.
The order of tribe rank is as follows:
En, Se, Tor, En Healer, First Bow, First Spear, Elder, Fang, Claw, Blaze, Scout, Shaman, Healer, Head Slaver, Slaver, Prowl, Camp Trader, Sister, Cub
In addition, during raids or other times of combat, we have a modified ranking based on combat focus, so during raids or combat our rankings are:
First Bow, First Spear, Raven (only has ranking during combat), Blaze, En, Se, Tor, Fang, Claw, Scout, Prowl, Sister, Cub
-Healers do not have a military rank, but they are ranking on medical matters.
