A Life of Lies: The Swamp Island

Meerkat is the father of Viper and mate of Tarantula. Him and his mate were violent fighters in Burn's army, before Burn decided they were threats and tried to have them killed. They escaped, and helped Camel escape as well. They joined the Talons of Peace, and Meerkat fathered Viper, Javelina, Ironwood, Silver Cholla and Bobcat. They were assigned to train the Dragonets in fighting by Morrowseer and Dreamhealer. He trains them with his other children, Seahorse and Ochre's sibs. He treats them like troops and rarely calls them by their names. He yells at Ochre for hiding in a skeleton during round one, but Ochre uses the skeleton to his fighting advantage and is praised by Meerkat for it. Meerkat and Tarantula divide them into different teams for round two, putting all their children on the same team with Ochre, Flame and Seahorse. At the end, he heads off to secret meeting with Tarantula, ignorant of the fact that they are followed by the False Dragonets.
