An obea is a rankless member of a clan. The obea's duty is to take sickly or sick deformed pups to their tummafraw, or dying place. Obeas are always barren females, who are assumed to have no maternal instinct. Many rumors surround them. She-wolves tend to avoid them, in fear that the obea will cast a spell that will make a malcadh, or deformed pup to grow inside of them. They also fear that obeas can see a deformed pup growing inside of them. Male wolves typically ignore them, and seem to see right through them.
