Done for Mantra, a personal project I'm working on.
It's a world in which individuals have the possibility of manifesting deities through extreme acts and virtues (could be an extreme act of courage, wisdom, faith, kindness, rage...).
The name given to said process is Mantra - it can be conscious or not, as long as it's genuine. The evocations usually take form of animals that reflect the host's personality.
Kharu Lonefang is one of the Kur'Izhan, a once fearsome clan of shapeshifters that has seen a drastic decrease in numbers after the War of the Eight. The few that remain are known to be incredibly brave, proud and devoted to their culture and kin.
