Belated fill for the March prompt over at :icongt-fluff: -- first meetings in the Leif & Thorn AU where Thorn is Tamaputian!

Along with being pocket-sized, he gets a Tamaputian name and a traditional warrior outfit, complete with sandals and stripey skirt. Leif is mostly the same, but they let him wear short sleeves full-time, because it gets hot on this island.

So is Tamapoa protected from invasion because they're valued for their abilities to gather intelligence for others?

They're like Monaco -- the United Islands has pledged to use its army to protect them if anyone attacks, but the country is so small that an invasion wouldn't get you much in the first place.
