- This article is about the Clan totem animal. For battle armor, see Sea Fox (Battle Armor).
The Sea Fox is a seal-like reptilian predator native to the freshwater oceans of Strana Mechty. Noted for its habit of giving a seemingly respectfully bow to its opponent before attacking, it was the initial namesake of Clan Sea Fox, who later became Clan Diamond Shark.
The Sea Fox population was driven nearly to extinction in 2984–2985 when Clan Snow Raven released the Diamond Shark, a genetically engineered predator, into the Sea Fox's habitat to exact revenge against Clan Sea Fox following a dispute. Within months, the Sea Fox became an endangered species and Clan Sea Fox, in an unprecedented move, chose to change its name and became Clan Diamond Shark on the last day of September 2895. They preserved some specimens of the Sea Fox, however, and when these flourished on other worlds, the Clan reverted to its original name in 3100.
