Zera'im was born in the ruins of the suburbs of New York state to a family of seemingly purebred collies. From a young age she was taught all human knowledge that her family had gathered. She learned about the various human religions, practices, medicines and cultures.
By the time Zera'im was 4 years old she was well established in her family as a healer and counselor. But then things took a turn for the worse. Her relatives began inbreeding, having isolated themselves from any other form of canine. The offspring that came from these vile unions were deformed both physically and mentally. Disgusted by her own family Zera'im decided to venture into the world on her own, but before leaving her aging mother revealed to her that her great grandfather was in fact a wolf.
With this knowledge she sought out wolves to gain knowledge from them. She eventually was accepted into a nomadic pack consisting of a cornucopia of breeds. From the old white medicine woman of the pack Zera'im gained much knowledge on ritualistic healings and natural remedies. Under the guidance of the medicine woman Zera'im developed her skills as a Shaman.
After several years the pack grew large and eventually disbanded into several tribes. Zera'im wandered amongst the different groups for a while but then made her way north into Canada.
Upon arriving to Nova Scotia Zera'im was greeted by Panda Behr and Venom at the borders of Anathema. The three of the sparked up an immediate bond because of their similar beliefs and the two Anathema wolves lead Zera to a cave on the outskirts. There she resided for a couple months before Panda asked to her to live with her in Anathema and be her midwife. Zera helped to deliver Panda's daughter, Lillith Trombetta-Behr. Zera'im then became ill with tuberculosis, and eventually died of it on February 25th, 2012.
Zera'im (or Zera for short) is soft spoken but very odd, due to her beliefs. Her spiritualism is shaped by bits and pieces of Buddhism, Christianity, Wicca beliefs and naturalism. She sometimes seems to drift off mid conversation and must be cajoled back into the real world.
Zera also has the belief that her right, light colored eye sees the evil in a person while her left, dark eye sees the good in them. Sometimes to find if someone is lying or not she will look at them with only her right, light colored eye to reveal their wickedness. Or if someone seems to be a dark individual, she will gaze at them with her left eye to see the light in them.
Zera'im finds pleasure in counseling others and remedying what ails them through the use of medicines and therapies. Her skills consist of:
- Medicine and herbal remedies making
- Bone throwing
- Last rights
- Ability to induce trances
- Speaking in tongues
- Therapeutic massage
- Aura cleansing
- Parents — Unknown
- Younger Brother — Beorc
In all three forms she has the classic collie colors (dark brown, tan, white) in classic markings.
- Head- black nose; right eye light blue, left eye warm brown; white blaze going up nose to end in a star burst on forehead; tan changing to dark brown at forehead and on ears, which are erect and not flopped over.
- Body- white underside and forearms, rest is tan changing to dark brown on back.
- Tail- Long and ending in a slight curl; tipped in dark brown.
- Mane- in Optime form Zera's mane is long and untamed in the back and put into two large braids in the front. It gradually fades from tan to dark brown at the tips. Sometimes she will decorate strands of hair with beads and feathers.
- Fur- All of Zera's fur is long but especially so on the forearms, head and neck, tail and the back of her thighs.
- Jewelry- Zera wears two large golden cuffs on her upper arms.
In lupus form she is average size for a collie.
In secui, which she rarely uses, she is larger and looks somewhat odd; instead of muscles growing and her becoming more bulky her limbs have grown much longer giving her almost a spider like appearance.
In optime Zera'im is impressive. She stands at a towering 7'9" but only weighs 200lbs creating a statue/modelesque appearance.
Korosk - A jet black Percheron stallion that Zera'im has grown up with. They are kindred spirits and Korosk is more than happy to carry Zera'im's loads and put up with her strange nature. After Zera's death, Korosk was inherited by Lillith Trombetta-Behr, Panda's daughter.
