Not many people expect a class of doctors to act like a bunch of animals and yet the notails are here to surprise. Climbing up trees and grabbing hurt animals with extreme speed, young V-classes are ambush predators. Listening carefully to the sounds of animals and mimicking them in an attempt to get the animal to "speak" back so the Y-class can locate injured subjects is a trait of a V-class that follows them everywhere. When surprised they'll act in an animalistic way, hissing, snapping, even attempting to make themselves look bigger. No other notail type does as well in the woods as a V-class, some of them even need to be dragged out.
After years of ambushing and dealing with attacking animals, watching them learn a medical profession can cause quite a whiplash. V-classes learn to take care of the animals they once hunted down, using their skills to take-down or capture animals who simply are too small for darts or too immune. V-classes watch over vast groups of animals. These animals are either backups for the Z-oologist class, new animals V-classes have caught and are checking the health of before sending to the Z-class, or just animals in recovery.
When not working V-classes are usually checking up on the herds of animals under their wing or relaxing out there with them, preferring the company of animals to that of other notails. Most V-class work involves taking care of new shipments of animals, healing animals hurt direly in capture creature fights and attempting to "evolve" creatures. V-classes are the main creators of evofluid, a concoction that rapidly mutated the subject in hours or even minutes. The fluid tends to kill the user at an 80% rate of death so many animals are lined up to get just one that responds to it well.
As V-classes handle evofluid a lot and evofluid is rather aggressive, many V-classes will get small doses on their hands or body by accident. This small dose is far less deadly but will cause a slow mutation in the V-class that lowers their intelligence by a bit. Most V-classes won't change too much the first time around but repeated incidents can turn them basically into an animal, at which point many are terminated or turned into guards as the transformation seems to allow them to hold on to memories of who are their friends and foes.
V-Trapper: These V-classes may be less intelligent but they are quicker and have more endurance. These V-classes are all about locating and trapping animals, bringing them back for V and Z-classes alike. These V-classes avoid intelligent contact more than other V-classes. While they're not doctors, they can mix up medicine using things they find in their area if someone gets sick or hurt.
• The mask of a V-class is the face of the animal they mimic or like the most. This mask will change if a V-class decides to switch this animal up.
• V-classes have more capture creatures than most notails and also have a highly varying team of capture creatures. These teams are made of creatures who can still fight but can't be used for anything else due to permanent injuries. An example of a capture creature on a V-class' team would be a flightless bird.
• Due to a few events where a V-class has willingly stabbed themselves with evofluid and turned themselves into a mindless monster, along with the slow accidental transformation of others, strange rumors have started to arrise about the V-class. These events have caused people to start believing that V-classes are werecreatures, stating that after all, they do hiss an growl at others.
