Nickname: Crow or Chris
Full Name: Ewan "Christen" Seghesen
Species: deer mouse
Description: Amber fur and creamy white underside; warm brown eyes. Crow wears a much more modest version of the Juska priest's attire: a dyed red wrap around the shoulder and waist, tied by a black quilled sash, and pale barkcloth leggings. Wrists and ankles are bound in russet cloth wraps, and arms are bare, with the exception of the Pike and Crow tribal tattoos scrolling on the biceps.
Possessions: He carries a beaded satchel, and the only finery he owns anymore is a quill-work bracelet, and his Priests' feathers. The staff-and-blade (or sakee "sha-key"), the traditional weapon of the warrior-priests, is a stone-bladed item with a cedar shaft and russet bindings.
Also, a sacred obsidian knife rests in a separate skin bag, but is never used for battle.
Strengths: Crow is very much in tune to nature and its spirits. His visions foretell pieces of the past and future.
Weaknesses: His visions come at random (often at very inopportune moments), and eventually, they bring a rift between him and his friends and family.
-He is not built as strong as his siblings and fellow clansbeasts, and has little taste for battle.
Personality: Upbeat, laid-back, and easier with the rule-bending than Hazel. When accepted with the priests, follows his heart over his head. Dislikes aimless killing, and the idea of slavery. Tries to follow the protective-brother role to his many adopted siblings. Modest and peace-seeking.
Background: Crow is the son of a slave, that was prophetised by the Seers to be the key to bringing peace to the warring Clans. The Juskasen managed to claim him during a raid as an infant, and the rat leader, Ilsin Seghesen, raised him as his own. Since a Crow was the Messenger in the dreams of the Seers, it is also his Guide, and so his namesake.
He and Hazel, his adopted older brother (and intended successor of Ilsin), are a tight pair.
During his childhood, Crow's visions became more frequent and disturbing with age. Eventually, he was chosen by the Clan Priests and inducted. However, due to certain visions plaguing him, Crow left his Clan (still fighting with the neighboring Juskamar) and started out to change fate - for their sake.
Alignment: good, neutral
Job: Warrior-priest to the Juskasen, traveler. Is a creative sort, and good with his paws; tells fortunes and finds things for whomever employs him.
