We have explained before how Qannik tries to minimize his workload, but everypup pulls their weight around Chez Herd . . . or else.
As the leader of The Herd, Queen Natasha leads by example by taking her turn at security detail. Chief of Security Kiska, however, makes sure that everyone else shares in the burden of security around Sibe Quentin. And that does mean everyone.
