Theory on Nantang
« on: March 15, 2010, 03:09:59 pm »
As we all know Nantang could be closely associated with dog.
So with this in mind we should come to consider them as man’s best friend well this case being Na’vi  not humanity.
So getting to the facts,
•   We can hear them making laughing like noises at night, I would assume they are just having fun.
•   The Nantang were clearly worried about Jake so followed him when he went wandering alone at night.
•   The Nantang saw Jake had made fire and were trying to get him to put it out in a playful way,
•   When Jake starts waving the stick around the Nantang thought he was indicating that he was going to play fetch with them.
•   One Nantang even attempted a smile,  it’s not his fault that doing so revealed all his rather pointy teeth.
•   Then one makes an attempt to jump on Jake as all dog like creatures do for attention, then Jake hits it with a stick. ((That is not very nice is it!))
•   Another Nantang makes for the same jump on Jake thing, and he stabs it with the stick!
•   A third Nantang jumps on him being heavy enough that it made Jake fall over ((has a dog never knocked you off balance?)) then Jake stabs it with a knife.
•   So the fourth Nantang attempts the dancing round feet maneuver and trips up Jake. ((Has a dog never danced round your feet while you’re walking up stairs or something?))
•   Once on the ground the same Nantang tried to lick Jakes face Cleary showing affection, yet again jake stabbed it.
•   A fifth Nantang now tries to jump on Jake being playful and it gets kicked away.
•   Number 6 tried to bite Jake perhaps thinking that was the intention of the game Jake was playing with them.
•   Neytiri comes along seeing the situation Jake has clearly created and shoots the poor Nantang.
•   The Nantang then think she is playing too because of the way Jake has been treating them she has to put a few more down for they have now become a danger from what has just started out as fun and games.
•   Now the poor Nantang are crying! ((I’m sure we have all heard the sound of a dog whine when we are having too much fun learning Na’ví and forget that our puppies need time to run around our feet and play outside.))
•   Neytiri then realized the misunderstanding Jake had created with his lack of vision and made her best Palulukan impression to scare away the surviving Nantang for their own protection.
•   She then tells jake that “all this is your fault they did not need to die”
•   She then told him “you’re like a baby making noise, don’t know what to do”


I believe this is enough to show us that the Nantang are not aggressive predators, but just playful puppies!

Great work pointing this one out!

Hmm, wasn't there an olo'Na'vi famous for it's connection to nantang? I know the Omatikaya are famed for their fabrics and there was at least one other clan mentioned for stone jars/pottery.
Where's the ASG when you need it?

Just don't pee on one. One of us around here did apparently. And the medical report crashed the computer system.  ;)

They got a shoulder size of 70-90cm (~ 3feet), which is like a Great Dane, I guess...
And they aren't losing hair all around :D

1 is just plain evil (marbles)(black moggie)
another is laxy (ozzy) (bengal snow leapord cat (mini snow leapord))
the third (molly) gets into fights 25/7 (migit bengal leapord cat (mini mini leapord))
(and loses so the second one (ozzy) turns up who could quite happily eat another cat or two without any trouble at all)
(ozzy hasn't hurt any other cats (i hope))
