5.  History

5.1  Achievements


go get yo' catacombs template, son

Colm was seen as lower class thanks to his being born with an unknown father. He was used as a scapegoat/punching bag/training dummy/target. Would be forced to stand about and let himself be practiced on when younger. His left ear was mostly cut off when a sword nicked him during practice, his right ear was split when a knife caught the center of his ear.

Came to be a horse trainer after accidentally displaying a natural tendency of being able to connect with and understand what the horses are thinking and feeling (partially low speech, partially natural inclination and intuition). Ended up going from being used as a target to stable boy to actually breaking colt with in few short months. Early on he sustained a kick and several bites from these broncs, the worst being on that he took to his jaw, which slightly offset it.

At first the methods he was taught were despicable. He would ride the bucks out them until the animal spirit was broken. Colm did not like this work but at the time thought he preferred this work over being a dummy target so he kept his own thoughts to himself for a short while. The coyote ended up meeting a stranger who offered him a job as a rider for races, since the male was small and had a confident hand. So he left his colt breaking practice and left his family to travel with this stranger.

For a year Colm traveled aboard his boss’s top horses, eventually winning more often than he lost. There was something thrilling about having control of such a fast and powerful animal. The sport was addicting and he thought for sure he would work for this fellow the rest of his life, until he met a real horseman with the finest animals around. His horses were not just well trained, they were willing to do anything to appease their riders because they wanted to. Colm became infatuated with this trainer and would apprentice him for nearly a year.

When his old mentor passes away early winter, he was deeply affected but the premature death of his idol. So in his plight for solitude he left everything behind and took his late mentor’s steed out into the rolling hills where he would study and live with wild horses for months. He learned everything about their natural behavior. The lead mare of one of the bands was a curious equine and Colm eventually captured her and trained her for his own mount, setting his mentor’s horse with the band in her place. Nothing had been as challenging as humanely gentling and starting the wild mare but in the end his patience paid off and Colm ended up with one of the best horse’s he’d ever rode. Whenever he could get his hands on a training book, he’s reading it. Usually pages are missing or the words are hard to read but just a glimmer of information was better than nothing. Building from what his mentor taught him, the coyote eventually was the best horse trainer in the area.

His talents were recognized by many and before long he was getting many clients wanting him to train their war mounts. It took a special type of horse for such demands, one physically capable and one mentally able to handle the chaos of battles. That’s when he first met Xenophon, the greatest war stallion in his opinion.

Xen was of grand breeding and had an excellent mind, but flames and fast moving shadows would spook him and cause him to dump his riders. Colm was able to work through it, much to his owner’s grand surprise. Colm was sad to see the stallion go but glad to have helped. However the stallion’s owner was not nearly trained enough for the level his horse was and Xen severely injured his master. The owner swore that he’d kill Xenophon and would not listen to what the horse master had to so say, so Colm took the initiative to steal the stallion to save his life.
