I wonder how strong Elena's change is? Because I got this image in mind that if she was also a top level Feral, the Turks have another four-sided triangle at their top level - three males and one female, like the OT4 has.

No, I would say that Elena's more of a mid-level feral, although she's definitely on the higher end for a mid-level.

Of course it seems implied that most of the other Turks have changed too, but probably have different levels of change to them so not all of them are the leader-strength Ferals that Rufus, Tseng and Reno are (though even in those three, Rufus is the strongest).

Rufus is the only high level feral in their particular pack. All the Turks fall in the broad mid-level range, with Tseng and Reno coming in on the very high end for mid-level.

Even though Rufus's pack only contains one high level feral (as compared to the OT4's four and Cid/Vincent's two), his pack is still very powerful due to the larger number of strong mid-level ferals.

The group dynamics in Rufus's pack is rather different from OT4 or Cid/Vincent because Rufus is the one alpha leader with the rest being subordinate (in sharp contrast with OT4 and Cid/Vincent, where the partners are essentially co-equal).

The closest analogy would be a pride of lions, with Rufus being the male lion and the Turks (male and female) being the lionesses. Being the strongest, Rufus has the perogative to have sex with any member of his pack he pleases (and in the case of the female Turks, breed with them if he so desires). However, Rufus doesn't have specific acknowledged mate(s) or partner(s), although Tseng and possibly Reno probably come close.

Anyway, lovely to see more of this! ^_^

Glad you enjoyed it!
