Not all of the Sky Shadows are virtuous in their pursuit of the people’s common welfare. Some members of the tribe view the current state of civilization, such as it is, as more of an opportunity than an obstacle to be overcome or a problem to be solved.
One such member of the Sky Shadow tribe is its shaman or “seer,” known as Signreader. His influence over the affairs of his people has grown steadily, especially since Rockjumper’s ascension as the new Chief.
Signreader’s ritualistic role as an oracle of sorts is facilitated by his use of a small toy duck on a stick which he uses to foretell the fate of the people, whether good or ill. To the cultures that vanished to make room for the Sky Shadows, such a ritual would be nothing short of laughable. But to the Sky Shadow Tribe, Signreader’s words carry the weight of their entire ancestry.
Will Signreader’s influence lead the Sky Shadows to ruin? Or will the answers to help Sundog and Fallingstar be found elsewhere?

According to the Sky Shadows’ meager knowledge of their lands’ other inhabitants, the Headhunters are scattered and enigmatic, little more than feral pests, savage scavengers. Recently, though, unbeknownst to the Sky Shadows, things have changed. A chief has arisen from the motley rabble. And with this new leadership a new tribe is born.
Is it possible the leadership of this Chief has given the Headhunters a path to a civilization of their own – a civilization to be built from the wreckage of conquered and pulverized tribes?

And she decides to leave everything behind – her future husband, the Sky Shadows, everything – to try to forge a new future for herself. Though she defies expectations of her role in the Sky Shadows tribe, she carries her maternal idealism to the battlefield to fight for the future of the entire human race.

FALLINGSTAR in Tribes: The Dog Years, the new color graphic fiction series from Soulcraft Comics:
For the Sky Shadow tribe, life consists of a series of tough choices between absolute necessities. Survival is paramount; everyone has a role to play in a tightly knit tribal system. But for Fallingstar, being chosen as the future wife of a Chief, somehow does not feel right. What is her true destiny? Why does she yearn for more, beyond her role.
She yearns to become more than is expected of her. Does she dedicate her life to her duty, or does she take another path? Can a young woman determine her people’s priorities while also avoiding her role as one of their leaders? Will her determination endanger her and her people’s future? But there is no time to ponder. In the world of Tribes: The Dog Years, humans live to only twenty-one years of age. Fallingstar must act – now!
And so she is inspired by Doctor Irving Adams, the seemingly immortal scientist who has apparently lived nearly three lifetimes, and his tales of a world beyond the limited existence of her isolated and constantly threatened tribe. How has he survived? Is his magic real, as opposed to the nonsense of the Sky Shadows’ medicine man, Signeader. Dr. Adams seeds the dream that one day she might actually see and help raise her grandchildren.
Her influence stirs Sundog, our reluctant hero, to join Adams and his mysterious quest to find the source of the “plague” that robs humans of precious life at the tender age of twenty-one.
Fallingstar, future wife of the Chief of the Sky Shadows, will play a crucial role in the future of humanity.
