A leader is an appointed position in Fleeters. They are generally the leader of a group of raptors in specific areas. Leaders help others of his or her own species, and will guide others into battle, if need be. All raptor leader names end in -ipteryx or -pteryx, a reference to Archaeopteryx.
Sometimes, a leader may have a second-in-command leader, usually the leader's mate; similar to the cat's version of a deputy. Their names generally end in -tavis or -avis, a reference to Argentavis.
Second-in-command leaders will step up and take over as leader if the leader dies.
