Powers: Omdar’s face and body are tattooed with the sun and the bear in honor of a great kill, when he felled the dire bear that slew his father.

Biography: Omdar Shem, Chief of the Gathering Wind, was born to one of the lesser hunters in the tribe, but he took the mantle by rite of combat. The tribe, already small and vulnerable after being cast aside by the larger White Rain clan, was being terrorized by a dire bear. The beast devoured many, including the chief and Omdar’s own father. With little more than a broken spear, Omdar stood between the bear and the young shaman, Dura Ujella, and struck the monster in the heart, earning the faith and the loyalty of his tribe.
Omdar emerged a hero, but he was not unscathed. The bear had been tainted by the blight, and when its foul claw raked across Omdar’s face and shoulder, he received a wound that would never heal. He would fight that blighted wound and the blight within his jungle for a millennia, until finally passing his burden to two sons, both destined to save Ugoma and become legends in Ujoa and beyond.
