Sergals (Japanese: サーガル, Sāgaru, Ancient name: Sieg) are a race that have various features which are similar to plural Earth's animals with shark-like head. They are one of the three sentient and sapient Eltus race who are regarded as the "human existence" on the Planet Tal.

They have many features reminiscent of sharks, rabbits, kangaroos, canines, reptiles, avian, and others. In addition, they have no obvious gender differences in their appearance and biological feature. Due to this, their physical strength, behavior, personality, and social role keep gender-neutral state basically.

They show most "animalistic" natures in their various behaviors and abilities in comparison with other Eltus races, they have the fastest running speed and strong leg strength, additionally superior intuition and susceptibility for nature.

While they are covered in mammal-like fur, they are ovoviviparous and do not possess mammalian breasts and breastfeeding ability. Their scientific classification may be said to be the middle between mammals and reptiles, however, they are hard to be strictly classified the same as Earth's creatures entirely.

They have a population the same to or larger than the Agudners. In Tal, they live in the whole areas of almost continent except the part of the far west area where only Nevreans are living.

General Rain Silves is the most widely known sergal. While Sergals have become known on the internet for having a monstrously violent and sexually deviant nature, this behavior is generally confined to Rain Silves and those under her influence. Because Sergals are designed to be a pretty friendly and peaceful race, the notorious stereotype for the species leads to deadly misunderstandings and misconceptions. Due to this, we would like to deny these stereotypes distinctly because those are very harmful, not only to the species concept itself, but also to the species creators, Mick Ono, Kiki CR, and everyone on Vilous Team GRG.

Canon representative members of the race would be Rain Silves, Leeric, Kadd, and Jakk.

This article describe about common features of all sergals, but there are regional racial variations in appearance and behavior. (See below for further details and each articles.)

While possessing individual personalities, their general character is simple-minded and optimistic, also sometimes show an animalistic sensitive nature. Overall, they can be said to be sensuous people. Due to their deeply religious nature and faithful mentality, they can behave with a mob mentality when influenced by a strong-willed or charismatic individual.

Their animalistic natures and abilities appear on both their strong points and shortcomings; as strong points, it would turn as bravery and physical strength. Thereby, they are suitable for jobs which require exercise capacity and work extensively outdoors such as soldiers, hunters, and explorers. As for shortcomings, they are unsuitable for jobs which require logical thinking, concentration, and very accurate stereopsis such as crafting and engineering above a certain level. - Supplement: Sergals are generally unsuitable for technical jobs like mechanical engineering, but they can perform simple crafting or smith: Make basic armor or weapon from a material. But more complex work like carving, joining, and rasping is definitely a more agudner oriented line of work, where agudners can exhibit the patience, dexterous hands, and steady stereopsis ability required to deal with the intricate nature of it all.

Meanwhile, they have strong intuition close to six sense and superior susceptibility for the natural environment. Due to this, they have the strongest capacity to deal with things which cannot be elucidated by logic and science such as supernatural phenomenon and shamanism.

The original species of them is Northern sergals, and there are various regional differences who have derived from Northerners; Southern sergals who got civilized culture earliest by symbiosis with agudners from early stage, Eastern sergals who are mixed breed of Northerners and Southerners, and Western sergals who are extinct race. But in the modern era, nationality such as Shigu, Reono, and Gold Ring takes up greater importance than race or subspecies because of the sheer amount of mixing gene pools by globalization.

They have a very good relationship with agudners historically. Sergals and agudners can cooperate with each other like the engaged gears while making up for each shortcoming with each strong points. Sergals deal with wildlife and the natural environment while agudners are taking the development of technology. In comparison with nevrean's gender relationship which can be described as "Yin-Yang", sergals and agudners also can be said to be having such "Yin-Yang" relationship by a unit of their two races.

Regional differences

Sergals generally fall into four broad classifications: Northern, Southern, Eastern, and Western.

Brief summary:

Northern With the longest history, they had continued a primitive and tribal lifestyle among the Talyxian biome forested areas of the Shigu lands, until the early stage of Rain-Calendar. Cowardly and easily led, due to their strong awe for natural surroundings. Have cold and grayish colors on their fur, and ones who are strongly influenced by miasma would show forward-facing eyes. The appearance of Rain Silves and her subsequent rise to dominance led to a major shift in their lifestyle. Then after the end of war and reconstruction of Shigu, they finally got a civilized life.
Southern Living a more cultured and civilized lifestyle with a strong connection to the agudners, mainly in Gold Ring. Have warm and brownish colors on their fur, and are smaller and more slender in stature. They show more "human-like" proportions. Gender differences don't differ on the biological feature, but are more culturally apparent, with females often having a more "feminine" fashion and behavior.
Eastern A genetic mix of their Northern and Southern relatives. Have deep colors on their fur, and are the largest and most heavily muscled of sergals. They live in Eastern Reono lands, Southern Gold Ring, and a part of Northeast villages also. Culturally similar to the Southerners, they do not share the Northerners fear of their natural environment due to their superior hunting techniques. They also share their Southern neighbors' connection to the agudners.
Western A subspecies of the Northern sergals, and a de facto extinct race on canon story and history. Have intermediate colored fur based on Northerner's color pallet and slender body. Few in number, they lived in Velta areas where is Northwest of Tal near the Nevrea region, and were sharing culture with the Native Nevreans. They were almost destroyed due to the genocide in Western lands by General Rain, approx the year 33 in Rain-Calendar. A very few survivors are living in Gold Ring with Southern people.

Fur and hues

Sergal fur has a straightforward two-tone color pattern like that of a shark or many earthly mammals. Spots and Stripes are not common. Completely black or white Sergals are rarely seen and those with dark / light color inversion basically don't exist. However, these things are done by means of fur dyeing, which is a common behavior in urban areas(Southern Gold Ring and Eastern Reono lands). Tal has a variety of dyes derived from organisms. There are those who dye their bodies in vivid colors and even those who get tattoos.

In general, a member of a mixed-species (Civilized Sergals / Easterners) can theoretically display a wide variation and range in their natural coat color, with a few key differences in mind per subspecies:

Northerners will mostly display cold colors on their coats, with a white underbelly color whilst their Southern counterparts will have warm colors on their coats as well as feature white or sandy yellow underbelly shades.

Pure Northerners and Southerners are exempt from this rule as their coat colors have been maintained from years of selective breeding/inbreeding

Easterners can display a somewhat varied array of coat colors, however heavily darker than most if not all Sergals, due to their mixed gene pool. They have a healthy mix of both white and sandy underbelly colors, however, grey tones will be most prevalent due to the hybridization origins (North + South) resulting in colder tones on average.

Westerners are a subspecies of the Northern species, as such their coat color is recessive and can be found sometimes with Northerners as well as the rare few Civilized Southerners, provided their ancestry stems from the scant few Western Sergals lucky enough to reach Gold Ring in times of war as refugees. They are a de facto extinct race subset.

Height Ratios

Rain Silves height during the war was slated to be around 215cm (7'1") circa 28RC, reaching her peak height of 230cm(7'7") in the year 40RC right before she was imprisoned. Do note, her height was unique to her alone due to her mutation.

It can be said that an adult sergal's average height is around 183 ~ 196cm (6'0" ~ 6'5"), however, there are regional or subspecies based differences, however slight, given the rate of mixing and population dissemination, the estimates are as follows:

Northern and Western sergals average Heights from ~180cm (5'11") to 205cm (6'9")

Easterners ~195cm (6'5") to 203cm (6'8")

Southerners ~160cm (5'3") to 185cm (6'1")

At first, there were no apparent height differences between Northern and Western Sergals, given that they were the closest set of subspecies living separate from each other (North - NorthWest). That means they only differed in fur coloration, location, and cultural traditions, sharing common traits in everything else.

However, after the Western extinction and the inevitable mixing between Northern and Eastern lands during the war (brought on via occupation of Reono as well as after, during the reconstruction period), Northern height ratios went up on average, the vigour trait having been spread out to more groups.

The Western sergals lucky enough to make their way to Gold Ring found themselves in awe at the welcoming mix of cultures and given their artistic disposition as well as lack of concern for their own pedigree, they integrated easily into Gold Ring's society. Thusly, there are no longer any Western Sergals, the subspecies is now considered extinct and absorbed into the other subspecies.

Gold Ring is full of mixed Sergals. The Southern subspecies has many black and grey sergals, and not all are as short as the original Southern subspecies members. This being said, there still are Nobles (the pure Southern sergals), not exhibiting any of the hybrid traits of the North or West.

From 50RC onwards, nationality takes up greater importance than race or subspecies because of the sheer amount of mixing gene pools.

Physical description

While originally lacking noticeable outward physical difference between sexes, female Southern sergals have recently developed more "human" feminine traits.

Their fur is particularly long around the base of their ears, a base of their tail, their breast, wrists, and heels.

There is a conspicuous ">" shaped breastbone (the keel) in the center of their chest. However, this point is commonly overlooked in fan art.

Head and face

The shape of the head and snout is inspired by sharks, with swept-back and pointed ears. The top of their heads is completely flat and smooth. They do not have browlines or curved foreheads.

Ear holes cannot normally be seen from the side, because their ear holes always turn to the rear and are completely covered by rear pointing fur. In other words, their ears are NOT like the ears of Earth's creatures such as cats or foxes at all.

A thick mane covers the back of their long neck from around the midsection of the head down to the area around the shoulder blades.



Eye colors are generally gray or grayish-colors. Golden or yellow eyes are a result of a mutation unique to Rain Silves.

An adult sergal's eyes face outwards similar to lizards and rabbits, with vertically slitted pupils similar to those of cats, and in a similar way, their pupils change width according to the amount of light.

This gives them good peripheral vision and situational awareness. Also, their eyes feature superior dynamic visual acuity. However, their overall quality of vision is poor and they have a relatively difficult time focusing on a single point or perceiving depth (stereopsis), making the use of projectile weapons such as bows and guns difficult. All sergals are born with forward-facing eyes, which in most sergals gradually turn to the side as they age.

Some Northern Sergals, especially the pure-strain ones have permanently forward-facing eyes, this is in fact partly due to the environmental effects of Miasma upon them, as such this trait is considered an exception from the norm. Due to this, adult Northern sergals who have forward-facing eyes can be said to be neoteny.

Voice and cries

Sergals have an avian-style throat structure that gives them high-pitched, piercing, clear vocalizations. They are able to speak a general language and can also communicate using various animalistic "cries".

These include sounds like:

  • Yapping or yipping which sounds like what foxes or puppies make. - "Yip" or "Yap"
  • High-pitched and clear cries which deers make, sound like "Yigh".
  • high-pitched whining sound such as what sad dogs make. - "Whine"
  • High-pitched and clear cries which kitties make, sound like "Meww"
  • High-pitched piercing shrieking such as what parrots make.
  • High-pitched and rhythmical sounds such as what mouses, prairie dogs, and small birds make. - "Chirp"
  • A long and high-pitched neighing such as what horses make.

For example, a sergal may give a high pitched shriek when charging into combat, or make a whimpering or yapping sound when frightened.

Crying as communication is generally confined to Northern and Western sergals due to their more primitive culture. Eastern sergals may also sometimes use cries but their vocalizations are generally deeper and have rustic dialect like an animal. Southern sergals almost only use verbal language due to their cultural interaction with other races such as the agudners, therefore using cries to communicate is lost to the South.

Mouth and tongue

The edge of a Sergal's mouth is roughly in vertical alignment with the eyes. The mouth can open very wide like a reptile's. They have a thick lower lip which can vary from light pink, fleshy tones to dark browns, purple and black, extending from the front of the lower jaw to the middle of the sides resembling that found in canines.

Due to their mouth and throat structure, prey such as small animals is able to be swallowed whole. When eating the meat of large animals they will cut them into chunks since their jaw structure and lack of molars makes their chewing ineffective. They can swallow piglets size things as the largest things that are able to be swallowed by them without cutting. Damage from bite wounds is not so strong, because they don't have as many teeth and their jaws are not as strong. They have 12 fangs like canine teeth, those are replaced for life several times. Their taste is some rough in comparison with Agudners'.

Some sergals may have forked tongues like that of a snake, however, this is not a natural feature, but a surgical cut made for fashion or ritual. Rain Silves was the first sergal to be seen with a forked tongue, having had it was cut by her abusive mother or cut by herself as the ritual that is believed to bring power. All other sergals with forked tongues are mimics of Rain. Hence, the tongue forking did not exist as a common culture until Rain appeared.

There are naturally occurring folds on both sides of the tongue near the back of the throat.

Chest and breastbone

Sergals' arms, shoulders, chest, abdomen, and waist approximately resemble that of a human. One important distinction is the prominent ">" shaped breastbone, sternum or the keel. Due to the dense mass of chest fur, this bone protrusion is sometimes mistaken as merely a lump of fur. Due to the varying height of this protrusion between individuals, sergal clothing and armor are constructed with a wide raised portion around the breast to accommodate this.

They do not have breasts and/or Nipples or the ability to breastfeed their young. Both genders have pectoral muscles like a human male. Sure, they can accumulate fat by virtue of forced obesity in their chest, but they would not turn out as well.

Hands and feet and tail

Sergals possess three fingers and an opposable thumb on each hand, and four toes on each foot. Their fingers are similar to the fingers of rodents. While their feet have been described as being similar to avians,their original design was based on rabbits and kangaroos. The upper palms and soles of the feet that make contact with the ground are padded and have no fur.

2016/06/22 The official design was changed: their feet became more like kangaroos and rabbits, and a part of their paw pads develop like protuberances. These changes improve their jumping and running abilities. They are still able to catch things with their feet. However, it doesn't reach to the level the same as birds.

Their tail is thick, muscular and elongated, with a tuft of fur at the tip.

In New Age's obsolete version, sergals had a thick tuft of feathers at the base of their tail, but it was eventually removed.


  • Walking: Just like humans, swinging arms, digits curled.
  • Running: When running, the middle toe bears most of the weight and the toes are held out. The steps are very large, running as to bound like a kangaroo or rabbit. Generally, they swing their arms when walking or running, but when holding something like a tool, the tail is used as a counterbalance instead of the arms.
  • Jumping: Their jump is like a spring and can cover a large distance as well as create a powerful lunging kick. Sergals have the highest endurance of the 3 Eltus races.


They grow and mature quickly than Earthian, are considered young adults by the age of 10 years in Earth's time. They correspond to Earthian 14-16 years old before reaching 10 years old. But this rapid growth brings a short lifespan to them. Their average lifespan is around 60 years old in Earth's time.

The corresponding appearance change will appear due to aging; the fur of the chin and ear be longer, the cheeks are sunken, the hollows around the eyes are deeper, the wrinkles are made, the skin is sagging, the white fur comes from the face like a dog. Some will have weak legs and will be stooped due to the atrophy of the joints cartilage. There is no gender difference in appearance change for aging.

As for the age of majority, pure Northerners are treated as an adult when they reach Earthian's 14-16 years old. It means they mature before reaching 10 years old at their age.

:Provisional canon: - Southerners didn't have general idea for age of majority in ancient time, but they had begun deciding clear age following spread of the calendar in Gold Ring. In more civilized areas, they may take more time for being accepted as an adult.



Children and growth

Sergals are born with grayish fur regardless of their ethnicity, a feature common to all Eltus races. Their fur will begin to take on its natural regional color upon reaching the equivalent of two earth years in age.

All children have facing eyes, common sergal eyes gradually turn to the side according to growth. However, only Northern sergals keep their eyes on the front.

Since they are the earliest race to reach adulthood in the three Eltus races, children grow and mature quite quickly and become to be considered young adults by the age of 10 years in Earth's time.

As sergals do not process breastfeeding ability, babies are fed drops of blood of animals and liquefied plant matters or commercial liquid foods until babies become to be able to swallow solid food. But sergal babies need a liquid diet only in the very early stages (about a week from birth), they soon become to be able to eat almost the same as an adult's diet.

Northern sergal children often play with wildlife found near their homes. However, this rash decision often results in mutilation or death. Southern and Eastern sergal children are more sociable and often play well with other races such as agudners and nevreans.


Female genitalia

The female Sergal possesses a unique prehensile tentacle structure that is normally stowed inside the vagina. This "clitoral hood" is extended during mating to grasp the male's penis and maintain an erection until ejaculation. This is an adaptation to ensure successful breeding during difficult survival conditions where males become timid and avoid mating.

The clitoral hood also serves as a cover to protect the vagina, allowing the female control over mating and potentially preventing rape.

  • Regarding the New Age Canon female sergal's genitals

Reference Image (NSFW) - The "tentacle-shaped" part exists on female sergals in the New Age canon.

It is usually stowed inside the vagina, and acts as a "cover". It can move freely and is able to grab things. There are some people who misunderstand the tentacle-shaped part to be a giant clitoris, this, in itself, is not the clitoris. The clitoris exists in the area at the base of the underside of the tentacle-like part, The shape is not very much different from the clitoris of a female human.

Male genitalia

Their penis' head is similar to Earth's humans but tapered at the tip. The shaft can be an uneven combination of slight bends, dents, and extrusions, each of these is different and unique for every sergal. The structure of the penis is similar to canines where the penis is settled within a sheath while flaccid. When erect, the entire penis becomes exposed from the base to the tip. The testicles reside outside the body and are contained in a scrotum. Sergal penises are not prehensile.

Sergals are often drawn with a knot on their penis (a bulge near the base that is found on canines) but they do not have them in the official canon.

Reference Image (NSFW) - The full, detailed and colored reference can be found in the mature version of the Official Sergal Reference.


While originally being carnivorous, sergals living in the more cultured and civilized regions have developed omnivorous tendencies. If they are given a choice between the meat of land animals or fish, they will prefer fish.

Northern sergals are carnivorous and eat the meat of wild game animals. They also favor the meat of large animals, cutting them into chunks so that they can swallow without chewing. They will also kill small animals and swallow them whole. They may also supplement with grasses depending on the season.

Southern sergals are omnivorous and mainly eat fish, plants, and insects. There is not much difference in the availability of animals and plants throughout planet Tal, so differences in eating habits are easily accommodated. Southerners have also incorporated cooking into their culture and eat a variety of invertebrates. Insects are also a popular meal among them, although their variety is not as large as nevreans.

Ecology and behavior

There is a major cultural divide between the Northern and Southern sergals. Having been an isolated culture since ancient times, Northerners live a more primitive and somewhat barbaric lifestyle. By contrast, Southern sergals have integrated with other races such as the agudners and have advanced further in terms of civilization and culture.

Northerns: Their original birthplace is unknown, but they are the oldest lineage of sergals. Northern sergals have lived among a primordial and hostile environment surrounded by dangerous wildlife for most of their history, and this has impeded their development as a civilization.

Southerns: Southern and Eastern sergals have developed a strong and longstanding relationship with the agudners. This has fostered mutually beneficial development in culture and technology.


Overall, they can be said to be sensuous people, usually depend on intuitive insights and sensuous feelings to consider and judgment something. The details of Sergals' personality is strongly influenced by its surrounding culture, so there are noticeable differences in the character of Sergals from different areas. In general, they are simple-minded, easy-going, and optimistic, also sometimes show an animalistic sensitive nature such as cowardness and a trend that is easily led by influential something.

Their critical and logical thinking skills are somewhat poor. The average intelligence of an adult Sergal is comparable to that of a 14-year-old human male. However, their keen intuition remains with them even into old age. Most sergals are good and decent individuals, but their naivety and simplistic nature can lead to quarreling, petty violence, and sexual misbehavior. Their naive and honest personality might sometimes be abused by someone who attempts wrongful intentions, as a result, they might often become victims of fraud, due to their aspect that is easy to fool and swindled.

Their simple-mindedness makes them focus on basic concerns, which leads to having poor awareness of the smaller details or the bigger picture. Noteworthy potential benefits of this are that they do not remember quarrels and not hold grudges, and easy to recover from shocking or sad happenings. Also, they tend to show comparatively equal and flat feelings to everything compared to the cases of other Eltus races, this feature helps them to function a pretty fair character that is lesser to have envy, jealousy, and strong emotional attachment for something. This nature is reflected in their usual behavior and manner, it's obviously contrasting from those of Agudners which tend to have strong emotional feelings and attachment including somewhat negative feelings such as envy and jealousy.

Sergals tend to be simple-minded and have weak critical thinking abilities, as such they are easily influenced by their environment or by charismatic or strong-willed individuals. This is especially apparent in Northern Sergals who live in fear of their natural environment, and their submission to the leadership of General Rain Silves. In addition, due to their deeply religious nature and faithful mentality, they can behave with a mob mentality when influenced by a strong-willed or influential something.


While sergals view strength as a virtue, they do not require it in leadership. Sergals prefer to cooperate in groups without hierarchy, unlike wolves who will fight for dominance in their pack.

This is especially apparent with Northern sergals. Having shared their environment with dangerous wildlife, they formed their society with fear and respect for their natural surroundings and its inhabitants. To them, nature plays both a maternal and adversarial role, and they lack a strong leader among themselves. They sometimes assign roles modeled after the talyxian-associater social structure.

Having lost much of their dependence on and reverence for nature, Southern and Eastern sergals are more likely to want to test their strength amongst themselves. However, this is usually done in the form of sports or hunting contests, preferring not to dominate one another through strength.


In the Northern lands, the role of leader and high ranking individuals like General Rain is usually handed over by elders or trusted people within their respective groups. Northern sergals can naturally understand what job another should have. Like wolves, their system has no concept of "moving up in the world" and roles are determined naturally. They do not have written words and while very few actually speak, their communication is mostly accomplished with cries.

In the Eastern lands, they hold martial arts matches and various games to determine a potential leader's strength. Due to their more developed culture and language, there are some other, less physical decisions and recommendations made for positions.

In the Southern lands, physically fighting for things rarely happened, instead of having people who had more experience get into favorable positions. It's similar to a cooperate boss rather than a combatant leader.


There are not many civilized languages in the Northern lands. They mainly communicate with cries and body language and sometimes use very simple and primitive words but there are not many of these words. There are Agudners in Northern lands but they are very few in number so their civilized exchanges for things like bartering are very unsophisticated. People who have relations or come from civilized areas can speak languages fluently but even they usually do not know how to write. General Rain and Leeric also didn't know the language at all early on and they didn't learn to write throughout their entire lives. In modern times, the Northern people are able to use and speak the common language.

In Eastern lands, most people can use spoken language, having strong, animal-like accents. This is due to their close relationship with Gold Ring though there aren't many that can read and write, usually being traders who come from Gold Ring.

In Southern lands, most people can use spoken language fluently without an animal-like accent like Easterners. They can't read and write without learning, but thanks to their society their literacy rate around 40%. In modern times, it is embedded in education, so many people are able to read and write.

Sex differences

Older sergal concepts and more recent Northern sergal designs have made it difficult to determine differences between sexes from outward appearance and behavior. However, Southern and Eastern sergals have begun to show noticeable differences due to the influence of their interaction with the female agudners. For example, most Southern and Eastern females wear feminine clothing.

Southern sergal females, in particular, have fostered their own feminine identity; "They look graceful and pretty, but they have a strong sense of justice and a stubborn, single-minded side."

Female sergals tend to take initiative for intercourse due to a structure of their genitalia. However, both genders play an equal role in the workplace and in domestic terms.


When they pick on or flirt with someone, they value appearance most, don't mind race differences and sex differences. Having romance between different Sergals and Agudners is the most common romance between different races. Since they have done a historical collaboration with a deep relationship in South and East, there's a lot of joint-families of them for a long. And homosexuality between Sergals and Agudners is very common as well.

Also peculiarly as for Sergals, they do not stick to one partner, unlike many humans of Earth. Their basic sexuality may correspond to polyamory and pansexuality in the case of Earth.

Homosexual relationships basically do not receive an antipathy or aversion in Eltus society. Due to this, Sergals also, generally do not have negative feelings about homosexual relationships by default. Because Eltus races cannot reproduce between different races, due to this reason, "romance between different races" and "romance between the same sexes" are considered equally, in addition to the pansexual nature that Sergals have. This sense is rooted in the social environment with racial diversity that Eltus races have lived in, especially the historical and strong relationship between Sergals and Agudners have many points for this background, there are a lot of romantic relationships between them also.

Meanwhile, Talyxians are an exception and inapplicable to this. Because most of the creatures which belong to the Talyxian organism group are considered as "animal" in Eltus sense. Even Talyxian Stalkers who could be recognized as a race depends on conditions, do not have full 'human rights' by default. Due to this, having sexual relations with Talyxians is generally treated or considered as bestiality. (Talyxian Rooters are still more exception because they are in an extraordinary special position. T-Rooters are inapplicable to any case.)

Family and childcare

In general, sergals consider their community to be one large "family". They will raise their children communally regardless of blood relationship if they are part of the same social group. It is common for females to bear the young of males other than their partner, who never mind the mating with others in the group. It is not unusual for there to be a few homosexuals among the group as well.

As it is common for both partners to work, couples will usually entrust their offspring to communal childcare facilities for their safety. Educational facilities like schools also exist.

Southern sergals and Eastern sergals living among agudners will almost never raise their children alone. For south and east, cohabitation with agudners is extremely ordinary.

As they do not process breastfeeding ability, they depend on their prey creatures and edible plants around them when they feed their newborns instead. In old times, they fed the blood of animals and liquefied plant matter until babies become to be able to swallow solid food. Industrial food production in the civilized areas has allowed for a range of commercial liquid food for infants that are especially popular in the Gold Ring.


Sergals usually end up as either combatants or manual laborers, but jobs related to creatures or supernatural are a very suitable occupation for them as well. A typical sergal occupation would be a soldier, guard, construction worker, hunter, fisher, farmer, butcher, breeder, a biology student, priest, monk, and shaman.

Their movements and actions tend to be rough and bold, and due to other biological reasons, they are unsuitable for jobs that require fine motor skills or concentration. However, they possess strong intuition, a good sensuous quick thinking for natural environment and wildlife, and superior physical abilities which makes them excellent at hunting and fishing. And those benefits gave them the ability to take jobs related to wildlife like biology student and farmer. Biology student sergals were used as employee scholar with agudner technology slaves in Shigu Kingdom.

All sergals are suitable to work surroundings of supernatural culture like shamans due to their deeply religious nature and superior sixth sense. They have a strong ability for shamanism as racial nature, especially more primitive sergals like uncivilized Northern sergals were having a higher thing of those.

Shaman sergals do shrine rituals such as ceremonies, praying for rain, praying for sunny, and an exercising. Also, some of them perform magic rituals such as an incantation, a curse, a fortunetelling, and other miscellaneous praying. They do a pilgrimage to dozens of small shrines in each place of planet Tal, to get the super-spiritual powers that they believe that it can make them be able to do both of shrine rituals and magic rituals. But there are some small shrines on dangerous Talyxian plants areas also. Especially, pilgrimage to a small shrine of Magoe Forest have high risk due to many dangerous wildlives and so on.

In prehistoric times

Sergals are generally weak in combat without their weapons (details are written in the next section). Before developing these weapons even the northerners were unable to hunt large prey, so in prehistoric times they had to simply run from larger creatures, catch smaller animals with their own feet, and subsist on protein-rich plants for sustenance. This history of being at the mercy of their natural surroundings has led to the fear and respect towards nature that defined Northern sergal culture in their earlier years.

However, once they possessed these weapons, they were able to hunt larger creatures for their meat and consumption of plants became obsolete. Some Northern sergals were able to escape their primordial surroundings, expanding to the east and interbreeding with Southern Sergals giving rise to their eastern cousins. As these Eastern sergals mingled with Southern sergals and the agudners, their technique and technology were further improved. Their hunting abilities continued to be refined, and their fear and religious faith in their surroundings weakened in response. Still, to this day many Northern sergals still consider the primitive beasts of the north to be of special significance as a source of both fear and food.

Weapons and combat

Sergals are most adept at close to middle range combat. Their bones are strong but due to their slender posture, they do not use very heavy armor.

Main weapons

Sergals prefer to use a lance, spear, javelin, long-sword, two-handed sword, saber, slingshot, or occasionally a mace when fighting in combat. Sergals, particularly those aligned with the Shigu Clan, would supplement their armors with claw additions to their talons and leg-mounted blades in order to enhance their close-range deadliness. These were developed mainly by the Shigu and their use is considered excessively barbarous and cruel, their foes often fearing and outright despising those making use of such tools.

Sergals tend not to use larger shields, but a small type of shield attached to their forearm is commonly employed.

Basically, sergals love melee combat and are quite deadly at it. They prefer the use of bladed weapons as they find the most effective at dealing with Talyxian or even the occasional Eltus threats. Blades also hold up a very distinct, spiritual meaning in lore as well as practical, which is why they are emphasized as the usual go-to solution, from the old-era all the way up to modern.

Because currently within the Vilous setting there are fairly few firearms available, sergals rarely use firearms. See Also: Firearms in planet Tal

In addition, sergals have a wide peripheral vision, superior dynamic visual acuity, and excellent situational awareness, however, their overall quality of vision is poor. Due to their eyesight working in conjunction with their brain structure, they are unable to focus on a single target well, and they cannot successfully use projectile weapons without assistance. However, they can practice simple long-range attack like a javelin at close range quite well.

In unarmed situations

In close range unarmed combat, tackles, jumping kicks, and biting are common methods of defense. Their reliance on running attacks puts them at a disadvantage in enclosed spaces. Damage from bite wounds is not as severe as that of a female nevrean, as sergals do not have as many teeth and their jaws are not as strong.

Combat style and ability

Sergals specialize in teamwork during hunting and combat in a manner similar to a canine pack. Their main proficiency is in evasion and strong offensive abilities, featuring quick, dynamic movements and leveraging their strong jumping ability. Their strength is in close range combat, and they can quickly close the distance from mid-range engagements. They will take advantage of their high stamina to run long distances, chasing down their enemy or prey until they do not have the strength to escape.

Due to their size, their agility is inferior to Nevreans, but once they are up to speed, they can move the fastest and furthest of any Eltus race.

Sergal soldiers wear relatively light combat armor made of ceramic and can disregard their own defense to a degree when facing off against an opponent. Sergals secrete a large amount of adrenaline during combat and can ignore minor injuries and distractions. Their sensitivity to pain is dulled and their focus is sharpened significantly. However, their critical thinking also deteriorates and they will behave like a pack of lemmings without sufficiently skilled leadership.

Very early sergal.

There isn't any particular origin for the name; Mick Ono merely named them with her pure inspiration come from her sense of wording. The fact that "Saagar"(सागर) in Hindi signifies the waterside (sea, lake, etc.) is really just by coincidence and there's no connection.

They are widely known from image boards, and furry fandom sites in particular and are more well-known than the rest of the setting from which they come. Most only know of the existence of Sergals without knowing the whole creative world of Vilous.

With regard to design origin and animals in real life which sergals based on, it is often contained in a discussion in fandom. In fact, their real origin is Rabbit and Fighter Aircraft, as Mick Ono is a fan of Watership Down and Ace Combat. Especially their feet were based on rabbits or kangaroos at first, so their feet are totally different from birds or raptors.
