Shaamah

Shaamah is a large, beastly male, who isn't much fun to be around and certainly doesn't have a developed sense of humor that any Sapien's have come to know.

Coming from the Marshes as the failed lord of a disbanded pack, Shaamah joined Sapient under a body-guard contract stipulation. Over time, Shaamah has risen in rank to become a figure of leadership in Sapient.

Shaamah fulfilled a contract with Miwa to birth a litter of pups out of mateship. Through this relationship, three offspring were brought into the earth in a hateful relationship. Jamaigo. Zetsubo, and Kaimu, are all to be brought up under the Ito name. Shaamah want's nothing to do with them.


Currently Shaamah is a member of Sapient, ranked Acredo, holding of the Mercenry metier and his AOS is Combatology (The study of combat and strategy).

1.  Appearance

At first, one would note the hetero-chromatic gaze. His right eye is a fiery gold, and his left, a chilling blue. His body is adorned with scars from all types of warfare, though what is left of his monochromatic pelt is thick and plush. His nose and pads are a pastel pink, and the healed tone of his scarred skin is a Spanish white. His undertones are a silver, gradually rising and darkening into Mineshaft primal stripe that runs from his hackles and down his spine, to the end of his tail. Paws follow suit with the dark color, tall gauntlets on forelegs and up to the ankle on his hind legs; Elbows reside in the same color. One silver spot adorns each leg, the two on the front are at the wrist, and the two at hind are on the foot between the ankle and the toes. A dark stripe runs from his crown to his nose, reaching out beneath his eyes almost like wings. His eye sockets are a darker gray and a dove gray holds most of his mane and body coloring, alongside a 'v' shaped marking upon his chest. Shaamah's build is a hulking, thick with muscle and broad in the chest, neck, forelegs, and hips. There is very little fat on him, and due to his wary nature, he's often dehydrated, leaving his skin taught and his muscles revealed in his optime form.

Images

2.  Personality

Shaamah is a husk of a living being. Memories phase him little, and are nothing but fleeting. He doesn't care for talk about the weather, or how the local sport is coming along. He is, with every fiber of his tense and strict being, a warrior. Rules dictate his motions and he lives very much by the book, when there is one to live by. His heart is as cold as a winter's night, ne'er to thaw at the motions of another. He doesn't feel such wonderful things as love, happiness, or contentment. He never finds himself in the low trough of sadness or depression. His mind and body breathe of his wary nature, and his face rarely moves from it's stern and apathetic visage. It is, simply put, easy to feel uneasy when his aura reaches into the atmosphere. His presence is strong and demanding, despite his lacking personality, and his eyes could make a soft child cry, with one unmoving glare. If the order was given to kill, he would not argue it. Be it best friend, woman or child. Alongside this callous creature's emotional constipation, he feels very little of the pain from injury. When in a fight, he is fully capable of ignoring the pains that any normal being would 'call it quits' over. Debilitating injures will still effect his body, but his pull to disregard the pain as weakness is enough to keep him fighting, long after many have fallen. Yet, even through all of this, his body's natural desire to survive is quite a force to reckon with. When in a state of healing in a protected place, he'll usually drop his tense nature and allow himself ample resting time. He takes better care of himself when he knows he's reached his limit, but the moment he's back on his feet, whether wound is closed or not, he's back to his usual, stoic and indomitable self.

5.  History

A pup was born to forbidden incest among royalty in a marsh not far from his parents native lands. This young one's father sought the death of this child and his mother, his sister, in the name of his own redemption, but as the thick of war struck their nation, there was little time for the father to come and cull his wrongdoing. The mother and her first litter, of which only two survived, lived happily on the meager existence in the marshes, and soon her children were hunting as she kept the den free of invasion. The two pups, boys with the likeness of their grandfather, grew strong, though something seemed unwell in their young minds. A wire in their systems hadn't fully developed, or rather, had developed too much. Either of the boys, in their own right, began to display mental illness, though none of it resided before their mother.

It was one day, when the boys were out for the night to gather their dinner, that the father had returned. It was a crimson skirmish, as their mother sought to protect their den. It was a quick fight, however. War honed father had been in the battlefields, where as their mother had learned naught but to care for her young in their time apart, though the father had not won unscathed. He was fresh off of the fields, torn from war itself, and now ripped by his sister but moments before the boys returned with their eyes wide. Two young warriors, blood tried and true to their father's purpose, had won over the murderer who had taken their mother's life, but there was no trophy in it. They split apart. Shaamah remained in the dens, living with the corpses of his parents as he processed through the shock he hand endured. His brother was long gone. It wasn't long after Shaamah found that he had to move on, as well. He left the marshes, for his mother's native land, and to it's leader he told the story of the end of Isaiah, his father. Ad'j, the king of this land, was surprised to hear of the death of his son so easily. Without replacement for the warrior he had lost, the leader of his small band of strong canines with his strange physical likeness to Shaamah, decided that the boy would have to step in and fill the gap he had made. Shaamah soon learned, and thrived in the art of war.

Their enemies had pushed them back and Shaamah, now the leader of this band, had found himself once again the marshes he had previously called home. He had grown into a malicious man, hard of heart and paranoid in his position. The threat now wasn't only his enemies, but the very criminals that he had allowed into his pack as a trump card. He rarely allowed a living thing behind him, and in his battles, he would find his mind taking the image of his mortal enemy, the king of his opposition. His life was riddled with chaos, and every attempt he planned to overtake the lands that were once Ad'j, he was defeated. It was the night of a raid, his enemies slipping through the mud under shield of darkness, that his band had come to an end. Broken and near death, Shaamah took off. These cur were not worth his death, and these lands held nothing more to him than the purpose of battle. For the first time in his history, he fled. Yet, it wasn't the end of his warring ways.

He traveled through many packs, bands and towns, throwing himself anywhere that would take him for food and shelter in return for the protection of the lands of which he was hired. One by one, these packs found that they had no need of him. War was thick in his veins and if he scented mutiny of the kings that hired him, the death of those considered loyal were not given permissions. When given scouting missions, renegades and bandits would receive no fair trial through Shaamah's eyes. Threats were immediately culled with each opportunity they were given to him. By taking things into his own hands to protect those that hired him, he was cast out, again and again. Simply put, his did his job to an extreme, and he did his job very well. Only, in his travels, did he find one that found worth within him.

While roaming in Nova Scotia after several encounters, he was wounded in a hunting mishap and found not but a few days after by a man of the name, Maximilian Barnet. This man brought him back to health under the contract of hired protection in trade of it, and for the beast to join Sapient in their ranks. As Shaamah's rank in Sapient grew and Max was able to better defend himself with training from the soldier, his position in the pack required more of him.
