At over seventy years old, Shadowwalker has begun to show the signs of old age and the wear of time. He has a crinkled face and white-as-snow hair. His body, although thin and looking almost skeletal, still retains some of the power of his youth, making him look imposing. He dresses in the simple skins of his people and the trappings of a shaman of Zebyr Jotun (Zeboim). His jewelry is made from the bones of many kinds of sea creatures.
Shadowwalker is a domineering man, raised from childhood to be the spiritual leader of the Que-Nal. He commands respect and deference from all those around him.
Shadowwalker became the spiritual leader of the Que-Nal shortly before the Summer of Chaos. He was chosen by Zebyr Jotun, the Queen of the Sea herself, sending him a vision blessing on him.
When the world was stolen, Shadowwalker was hit hard with the loss of his patron. Without her constant hand that had been with him since he was five years old, his mind started to fracture, driving him insane.
Over time he came to believe that the Sea Queen still spoke to him and bestowed her power to him. Unknowingly, he had stumbled on to the power of the heart and learned to be a mystic.
The fanatical Shadowwalker believes that Zebyr Jotun directs his every move. It is her will, through him, that has spurred him to act against the blight that is the Citadel of Light and the insult of the Que-Shu woman who runs it. Shadowwalker informs all the tribe that those who follow the teachings of the Citadel will stuff from divine retribution in the afterlife.
