After several individuals managed to cross the gap between Ninth Tropical Coast and Hydro Tropical Coast, a new species arose, known as the hemodohves. Feeding on the various gilltail-relatives to be found along the coastlines, these oceanic predators have flourished. Forming groups consisting of dozens of individuals, they use swarming tactics to outmaneuver their prey and cut off all escape.
Unlike their ancestors, hemodohves no longer need to come onto land, and instead remain at sea for their entire lives. Females are larger than the males, typically by at least 40 cm. Coinciding with this difference in size, the females are also roughly twice as aggressive. Many adults thus bear countless scars all over their skin, from past encounters during the mating season. It is during these times when females will aggressively bite one another while establishing their 'breeding territories', patches of ocean which can be miles wide and which they raise their young alongside those of their fellow group-mates. Regions with more plentiful food and fewer predators are prime candidates for these locations. If said young can survive, they can live to be up to 12 years old.
