The Alphas are one of the most prominent meer families in the desert. They are a medium sized family, with over twenty members. They live in the heart of the Sunlands, with neighbors on each of their borders. The Alphas were founded by the current dominant female, Queen, when she was evicted from her birth family. Queen started the Alphas with only a few supporters, including Noble and his daughter Mist, while she was heavily pregnant. It wasn’t until right before she had her first litter that the pups father and current dominant male, Pride, left his family to start his own with Queen. Since that time, Queen has had many litters of pups with Pride and the numbers of the Alphas grew. They eventually needed to expand their borders and ended up entering an agreement with their neighbors the Deltas that led to a contensious peace. While they have rarely had disputes with their other neighbors the Powers and the Brights, the Deltas still continue to cause problems for the Alphas.
Due to the Alphas strong and dedicated leaders, they have survived the harsh realities of the desert for many seasons. They are a loyal bunch who put their faith in The Before Us and follow the teachings of The 5 Truths. They conform to the modern ideals and hierarchy of the meer and do not have any healers among their group….. as of yet. Perhaps their views will change in face of the hardships to come.
