I’ve been working on my back-stories for my characters and I’m stuck on Loki. See, I’ve decided to have that he was bitten by the raccoon leader (Bering, is it?) in the neck and was saved by Tanana. She healed him until he was healthy enough to return to the nest,
The question is, why should I have Bering bite him? Originally, I was just going to have Bering trying to eat Loki. But would that be in character?
I had also thought that perhaps Loki had found some kind of knickknack and was playing with it. Bering, trying to grab it, bites the raven’s throat in the process. This fits what little we have of his characterization, but on the other hand, I worry that perhaps this is over exaggerating what we’ve seen from the film; perhaps the eating approach would work better? ^^
Hm, it's hard to say, based on what little we know of Bering. But I think you're right, and the first choice is better. I'm not sure Bering's finders keepers attitude extends so far as the equivalent of mugging someone at knife point.
While there's no evidence one way or another of whether or not eating Loki would be in character for Bering, it's certainly believable for a raccoon.
