The second character of the War Prelude story. Possibly the character I like the most of all of them... And that's something.
Again, I created this guy several years ago, and it is really develped. I just love his character. He is so fun to draw or to write about. And he looks very cool, doesn't he?
As with his friend, a digital version of this is comming soon... As long as I find the time to do so...
Meet Shiham Arihab of Kaar. His past is sad and difficult, but that made him stong enough to face the future and beat all odds.
His mother, a young aristocrat of the city of Cadash, in Kaar, was seduced by a strange and mysterious man, whose comelly factions fascinated the lass. Then, after she got pregnant because of the affair, he was revealed to be a Demon Lord, disguised as a human aristocrat. Such a fiendish offspring was surelly to be the doom of the Arihab family, so the mother and her newly born child were casted away, her death representated and all kept in secrecy...
And so Shiham was raised on the streets. Her mother soon learned to sell her body in order to survive, the small child lost his innocence by the time he realized his was not the ordinarie way of living. And after the woman was killed by a sadistic and rich merchant, he was left to his own means.
By the age of 12 he was an accomplished thief and burglar. As he got 15 he found it all too easy. And so he began stealing for fun, and not for need. After a while, he got confident enough to stike even the nobles and the merchants, and he always managed to stay free and healty...Until he got bored again.
He had got the obsession of finding more about his personal history, and so one night he broke into the city's library. By studying the city archives he found out that not only he belonged to the Arihab family (said to be one of the 4 most important families in the Realm), but he traced his bloodline directly to Askaar the Legendary, Archmage of Myth and Founder of the Fire Kingdom.
And so he got overconfident... Just after he had discovered his natural talents for Fire magic, he got caught by some nobleman's guards and thrown to the city dungeons. There he met a young Handorean... And their lives changed forever.
