Uarach was born in the barren alpine regions of southern Ralczan. His birth was preceded by the appearance of a mountain lion during a great meteor shower, interpreted by the tribe’s mystic to be a sign that Uarach would he gifted and blessed by the mountain lion. The first few years of his life were unremarkable, and he grew up as most Galshan children did, learning to hunt and forage, playing in cold mountain streams, and on one unfortunate occasion, accidently eating a handful of psychedelic mushrooms. On the first day of his eleventh year, he woke up early, intending to check a some snares he had set the day before. Pleased when he saw a rabbit tangled by the trap he had set, he went about cleaning the kill, but behind him he heard a growling behind him. Standing at the edge of the clearing was a mountain lion with a distinctive white patch on its face, seemingly tensed to strike. It tackled Uarach, and he felt his end drawing near, all the life he could’ve had wasted. However, it simply pressed its forehead against his and padded back into the woods. He recounted the tale to the shaman, who realized his gift. Uarach was born with the power of the mountain lion, and with proper training could channel the power with ease. The training was brutal, and Uarach was separated from his friends and family to cultivate his wildness. He was forced to spend long days in the wilderness to emulate the mountain lion, hunting small mammals with his bare hands and eating them raw. About six years later, he sat on a rocky ledge, hands stained red with the remnants of his most recent kill, absolutely starving. He contemplated what brought him there, his simple but happy childhood, his strange encounter in the clearing and the shaman that had caused him so much pain and taken his happiness. For the second time, he saw the mountain lion with the white mark. It padded up to Uarach and sat beside him, and for a while Uarach enjoyed the company of a being that did not demand him to act like a beast. The night wore on and Uarach fell asleep. He dreamt that he was wandering a forest and came across a horned man wielding a great spear. The man touched the spear against his forehead and Uarach shifted into a mountain lion. He awoke to a searing, blinding flash of light.
Appearance and Personality:

Uarach is a tall, lanky man with long tawny hair and and tanned skin from a life spent outside. He dresses in furs, always ready to brave to cold of the mountains. Other than that, he carries little by way of combat gear aside from a sling and pouch of sling bullets. In combat however, he takes on an animalistic and terrifying nature. His stance becomes lower, something similar to a great cat and his nails grow into long and vicious claws. His voice takes on a deeper tone, almost a growl and his pupils narrow and become catlike.
Uarach is quiet, eyes commonly darting back and forth as if searching for hidden threats, a result of his training as a shifter. He is somewhat distrustful of others, though people who manage to get through to him find him incredibly dependable, willing to go to great lengths to help those he cares for. His mannerisms are strange, and he has a poor grasp of social etiquette on account of being forcibly turned somewhat feral. He is still coming to understand his power, and while it comes more naturally to him that it might to others, it still surprises him to become partially mountain lion.
