Interesting people, though I have a few questions:
As mentioned in the previous sub, a new Jul-Ghose may arise from one of the spawn in the event that he is killed. What would happen if the spawn that ascended to Jul-Ghose's place was bonded to a P'Cheela tribe member? Would the human be consumed, or transformed in some way? Or would the relationship remain mostly unchanged? I can imagine that the human might at least be granted immortality, if the lifetime bond was magically enforced.
More information on the bonding process and consequences would be appreciated.
It does feel a little under-done, but while adding more might the reading more enjoyable I think the idea is fully developed. Extra points for style and the fact that I hate HATE ticks (thus I demonizing theme seems like a natural extension for me).
