Galion is of an ancient lineage of lycanthropes. There were once whole cities of those who could change form at will to any living creature. However now the blood is so thinned that those individuals are rare indeed, and can usually only manifest in a single beast. They often live as outcasts and nomads. after the first changing, friends, family and neighbors look upon them with fear and hatred. Thus is the way with humans, to be prejudice against anything that is different. Galion in his human form stands only two inches over five feet, but in his bear form he is almost 9 feet tall, and wields his weapon with considerable strength and speed. Galion is one of the nine fighters in my story: The Goonsey Venue.
