Just trying to eliminate a few:
Moscow, Ishimura, Guatemala, Avalon, Manhattan, New Olympus, Paris, Labyrinth (clones), Easter Island, Loch Ness, space somewhere, Wyvern (Scotland), Antarctica, Ireland
Nine full points and one half.
London, Ishimura, Guatemala, Avalon, Manhattan, New Olympus, Paris, Labyrinth (clones), Easter Island, Loch Ness, space somewhere, Wyvern (Scotland), Antarctica, Camelot

3 - Guatemala
4 - Loch Ness, Scotland
5 - Wyvern, Scotland
6 - New Olympus
7 - Tintagel
8 - Avalon
9 - Manhattan, NY, USA
10 - Labyrinth, NY, USA
11 - Paris, France
12 - Victoria Land, Antarctica
13 - Xanadu, China
14 - Giza, Egypt
I'm having so much fun with this contest. I've been keeping track of everyone's guesses, and with every new answer I learn (or confirm) something. I was overjoyed when you actually started giving scores. It has become much easier for me to add up the scores since you started telling us the number of half points recently, but it was actually more fun when an 8 might mean 8, or 7 and 2 halves, or 6 and 4 halves, etc. I appreciate all the hints, but please don't give too many more, or you'll be making it too easy for us!
11 full points. 1 half point. That's a damn good score. And, no, I'm gonna stick to this system now, but I'm gonna try NOT to give anymore EXTRA hints.
And frankly, as close as you guys are getting numerically, I still don't think anyone's ever going to solve this one.
The 14 Clans:
11)Steel calan New York
14)Cold Trio, where ever they may be
Nine full points. Zero half points.
And you skipped number 12. Did you do that on purpose?
Another try at the 14 clans:
5. New Olympus
9. Wyvern, Scotland
10. Xanadu, China
11. Loch Ness
14. Athens, Greece
Nine full points. One half point.
THE HYENA CONTEST
Hyena is smiling because she's eager to get back to women's prison and hopes her next cellmate will be more 'accomodating' than Fox ; )
Except this episode takes place before Hyena went to prison and "roomed" with Fox. Who may or may not have been accomodating.
Now who scares who?

THE HYENA CONTEST
From the beginning of the episode, we see that Hyena is not content with living a "normal life". She wants to be, if you'll excuse the teenage phrase, hardcore. Wolf and Fox had already proven they were tough by getting thrown into prison for taking a woman hostage. Perhaps in her somewhat warped view of things, she was proving she was as good, if not better than they were. They were arrested for taking a model hostage; she, however tried to assassinate one of the richest men on earth. Who do you think would be considered more dangerous?
Thanks for participating. Results some day.
Hyena says "I'm not beaten yet", and Elisa responds by shouting "Oh, yes you are!". Hyena looks angry for a second, then smiles. I think she does this because she's thinking "Oh, no I'm not." She realizes that she's down but not out, and that although she may have to bide her time, she'll get out, and in the meantime she's going to go to prison with her brother to plan what happens next. So Hyena's smile her way of laughing at Elisa, who has no idea just how wrong she is.
Thank you for entering. Results when all the entries are in.
Well, I guess I'll take a shot at this, before more eloquent guys like Aris and Airwalker take it.
The Hyena Contest.
I think the twins had a very... strange childhood, which didn't impress them with the fundamental goodness of humanity. At the end of the day, each is probably the only one that the other even partially trusts.
They're both terrified of being alone, which is why a psychopath and a sociopath stay together. Hyena is smiling because she knows, subconsciously, that getting captured is the only way to stay with her brother.
(Or maybe Hyena was so glad not to be blind after seeing a million candle-power searchlight through her NVGs, she was happy to see anything, even a cop)
Thanks. Contests results to follow... someday....
