Shango (Monk)



Physical Description: Shango is a male dwarf, 4’6” and 215 lbs. Shango mostly goes shirtless, showing off his tattoos. He has one on each arm, one rapped over his right shoulder extending to his back, and one on top of his head (shown in drawing). He does not have any distinguishing scars, but he plans to get many in the future.

Brief History: Shango and his brother, Brehnor, were orphaned into a monastery; it is unknown what happened to their mother and father. Shango excelled at hand-to-hand combat, while struggling with classroom teachings. One evening the monastery received word that a shipment of silk failed to reach its destination. The monks grew increasingly concerned when they found that monk Udoven, who was supposed to deliver the silk, hadn’t returned to the monastery. They immediately sent out a search party, Shango and Brehnor included, and split into groups of two. The search continued for several hours with no luck in finding Udoven. On their way back to the monastery, Shango and Brehnor heard a commotion not far from where they were. As they rounded the corner and saw what appeared to be a tavern fight that had made its way outside. Seeing that the fight was greatly one sided the two brothers tried to intervene to help the man getting beat to death. While approaching the beaten man, an accomplice of the attackers slipped behind Brehnor and managed to thrust his short sword between his shoulder blades, piercing his chest dropping him to the ground. Struck with rage, Shango charged the half-orc assailant tackling him to the ground. The half-orc tried to catch his breath and wiggle free, but was unsuccessful as Shango began to pummel his face. By the time they were able to drag Shango off the half-orc it was too late.
