Shadow of a Horned God
Shamshar, also called “the Raging Madman”, is an Elder of Clan Malkavian, and a renowned Feral warrior. He arrived in Britannia in AD 99, during the “migration era”. His origins are shrouded in mystery, however, and he seldom speaks of his past. Having wandered the islands for some time, he eventually entered the service of Pharselios, the Prince of Aquae Sulis, becoming his Warmaster. He entered the Sleep of Ages in AD 342, awakening roughly a century later. As his post had been replaced, he sought meaning elsewhere, and found it two decades later, when war broke out between Rowena and Lucius Varro (backed by Valerius Marcon). He was recruited by Servilius, who put his talents to good use. Unfortunately, his service in the war became short, as he encountered Eldric on a nightly battlefield that same year. After a ferocious battle, Shamshar was struck into torpor, sinking deep into the mud beneath the river Tamesis. As far as anyone knows, he still rests there.
