Ton'ma was an organization of ogres that captured Aliastra and her pack of savagekin. Aliastra managed to free herself and the other escapees; they killed three groups of Ton'ma and after that the ogres raised the alarm. After some time the pack killed the best of the Ton'ma but they lost half of their wolves and a third of their sabercats. Eventually they reached the upper levels of the caverns, where the light of the sun could be seen in cracks in the ceiling. In the gates stood the last Ton'ma ogres but they were swept aside by Aliastra and her pack finally emerging into open air.
