I hope you don't mind my long responses. Your comments really help me in working the details of the Feral-verse. ^_^;

Hadn't thought of that. How much time would a high-level healer have to devote to making sure a human/low-leverl feral pregnant with a high-level feral's child stayed healthy though?

Your question could be read two ways, so I'll go ahead and answer it both ways.

If you're asking how much time/energy a high-level healer would be required to expend in order to provide a decent level of health and safety for both mother and child, it can vary widely depending on how compatible the human (or low-level) is with the father and resulting baby. Yes, humans can have some degree of compatibility with ferals even if they don't have the Cetra genes. To use an analogy in real life, a human mother and a baby with compatible blood types are likely to have fewer problems than a mother and a baby with incompatible blood types (e.g., O positive vs. O negative). So on one extreme, a pregnant human (or low-level feral) may only require constant bedrest and weekly checkups by the healer. On the other extreme, the mother may require around-the-clock monitoring for months.

But if you're asking how much time a high-level healer would have available to perform the necessary treatments, the simple answer is "As much time as he/she wants to make available, basically." High-level healers are pretty much laws onto themselves. Most ferals would not presume to question a healer's judgement on what project is deemed worthy of his/her time. Even for other healers, it would be considered presumptious and rude to interfere or criticize another healer unless some sort of gross incompetence or negligence is going on. And when I say 'gross incompetence or negligence', it has to be pretty darn blatant and egregious. I'm basically talking on the level of obvious negligence with respect to the welfare of one's bonded mate(s) and that type of stuff.

As time passes and more ferals Change, there will undoubtedly be some healers among them. But certainly none remotely close to Aeris's ability, considering that she's as close to a pure-lineage Cetra as there is. So basically, Aeris looks like she'll be the new Cetra queen of the Planet. ^_^
