Red wolf shifter Maverick Wilding is preoccupied with managing the Christmas activities that make the reindeer at his ranch so popular during the holidays until a run-in with werewolf hunters causes the worst sort of trouble for his kind.
Scientists aboard the aircraft deploy Global Positioning System (GPS) dropwindsondes as NOAA Corps officers pilot and navigate the P-3 through the hurricane. These instruments continuously transmit measurements of pressure, humidity, temperature, and wind direction and speed as they fall toward the sea, providing a detailed look at the structure of the storm and its intensity. The P-3s' tail Doppler radar and lower fuselage radar systems, meanwhile, scan the storm vertically and horizontally, giving scientists and forecasters a real-time look at the storm. The P-3s can also deploy probes called bathythermographs that measure the temperature of the sea.
Lilac is a teenage female hybrid water dragon standing at 4'7\" (140 cm) after the 3-year time skip. As a hybrid, she has mammalian features such as a fluffy tail and nose. Her ears were confirmed to be fish fin-looking like those seen on Merga, but are covered by a pair of earpieces that act as hearing aids, due to a genetic defect. She has light purple scales, magenta-colored eyes, and her hair is colored in a darker shade of purple.
She wears the majority of her long hair tied into a pair of long, twin pigtails out the back of the head, with the rest of her hair formed into big spike-like points on the back. On the forehead, she wears her hair in form of a side swept bang, which used to be longer before the time skip and nearly covered up her right eye (left eye in various promotional art).
In Freedom Planet 2, Lilac now wears a white overtunic on top of a blue shirt with a Mandarin collar. The belt is replaced by a red-orange Obi sash with an Obijime, and a knot in the shape of a five-sided flower, tied around it. She also starts to wear white knee caps as well as white and orange braces over her blue gloves. Lilac's hair is also slightly shorter (with the exception of her twin pigtails) and the side swept bang on her forehead is gone, no longer covering her eye.
Today, the practice is legal in just eleven states, although two of them, California and Hawaii, do not have significant whitetail deer populations. The remaining nine states are Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. If you live in one of the nine states where it is still legal and practical to hunt deer with dogs, you may be wondering whether it is a suitable alternative to the standard hunting methods.
If you are unfamiliar with the activity, deer hunting with dogs, also called dog deer hunting, refers to the tradition and practice of using specially bred and trained dogs known as hounds or hound dogs. Hounds should not be confused with gun dogs, whose purpose is to help hunters locate and retrieve small animals after being shot, such as birds and waterfowl. Gun dogs typically remain by the side of their owners until commanded to go.
In stark contrast with sighthounds, scenthounds are typically shorter, with squat, sturdy bodies, long drooping ears, large nasal cavities, excellent endurance and a keen sense of smell. Although they cannot run as fast as sighthounds, they can track scents over far more extended periods and distances. They are also known for their distinctive voices, allowing hunters to hear and locate them even if they are out of sight. Most scenthounds hunt small animals, although many can be trained to track deer as well. Typical scenthound breeds include:
Regardless of the method employed, once the dog has located a deer, traditional locating methods had hunters relying on listening to their hound and finding them by sound. Modern-day hunters typically fit their dogs with GPS collars, using an electronic map to monitor the location of each hound in real-time. With two-way radios, the hunting group can communicate with one another to coordinate themselves and inform each other if the hounds have successfully located a deer.
Once a deer has been located, dogs begin chasing them. Unlike traditional hunting methods, deer are alerted, running and coming in at relatively close distances, requiring hunters to take a shot on a moving target. For this reason, many dog hunters use shotguns loaded with buckshot, although some may still prefer to use rifles.
Although different breeds have varying endurance and fitness capabilities, most hounds can cover large distances and get around a specific hunting area within an afternoon, saving hunters time and effort. If dogs cannot find a whitetail in the area, it may mean there are none, preventing hunters from wasting their time looking for them.
The adrenaline rush of this hunting method is often viewed as more appealing to younger hunters. Many organizations and associations hope that dog deer hunting can helpprevent the hunter numbers from dwindling each year.
Deer hunting is often considered a solitary activity, painting hunters as antisocial loners. However, most dog deer hunters work as a team to bring down a buck, and the meat is shared between them. This fosters a social hunting spirit and works to improve the image of the hunting community.
It is challenging to be consistently safe when dog deer hunting, primarily due to moving from point to point in motorized vehicles, with loaded firearms ready at all times. Lapses of attention and high-intensity moments have often resulted in guns being accidentally pointed at dog cages or fellow hunters, presenting a safety risk.
Experienced hunters understand that they must take the best and most accurate shot possible, as it is the only way to bring an animal down as humanely as possible. Wounding an animal is inflicting unnecessary suffering and tasking the hunter with the responsibility to track it down and finish it off; failure to do so is illegal in most jurisdictions.
It may seem as though deer hunting with dogs gives some hunters an unreasonable advantage. But many dog hunters believe the deer is the one in an advantageous situation. It has the intelligence and reflexes to respond to danger quickly and efficiently to escape the dogs. A more contentious reality of dog hunting is the reliance on GPS tracking and vehicles to follow the hounds. The noise and exhaust fumes generated by the engines of trucks, ATVs and other vehicles are more significant contributors to hunting pressure than the use of dogs.
Deer hunting with dogs is a tradition with a long history. Although it is legal and practical in only nine states, the hunters who can legally enjoy this hunting method are adamant about its benefits and have valid reasons and arguments for preserving the tradition.

When first seen, Avocato, along with several other bounty hunters, tracked down Mooncake to the Galaxy One. The other bounty hunters were disposed of when Gary Goodspeed ordered H.U.E. to lightfold the ship. Only Avocato stayed behind and was taken captive, after which Gary forced him to play cards with him.
While at first hostile towards Gary, the two bonded during a mission to Tera Con Prime to track down the bounty hunter Terk. From Terk, Avocato learned where his son was held captive, but it turned out to be a trap, and he was brought before the Lord Commander. He managed to escape thanks to Gary, although Gary lost an arm in the process, and the two returned to the Galaxy One. Once Gary learned of Avocato's son, he promised to help free him.
Avocato is a Ventrexian (an alien cat), an anthropomorphic feline, and he's tough and he's smart (a reference to the 2016 action thriller film Triple 9). He has a smooth, Forest Ocean (or dark teal) fur with white facial markings and a crooked, upside down and triangular pink nose. He has large, rouged yellow eyes and small black pupils and a jagged tail. He wears boots, a grey belt with a silver buckle, greenish leggings, a tan vest, a pair of the shoulder and knee pads, a brown utility sash, and arm bracers.
Avocato is a rather serious bounty hunter who can seem cold and stoic at times. He does have a warm side, however, which appears especially when he is around his son and occasionally between him and Gary.
Avocato can also be shown as cruel which can be seen in the series when he watches fellow bounty hunter, Terk, die by getting painfully tazed with a casual, and almost annoyed, look. However, he is capable of being caring and helpful to the ones he trusts.
