“Suffering has been stronger than all other teaching, and has taught me to understand what your heart used to be. I have been bent and broken, but - I hope - into a better shape.” ― Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
Homid Name: Justice Baranov
Deed Name: Judge, Jury & Executioner
Tribe: Shadow Lords
Homid: A thirty-something with a shaved head, nearly black eyes with dark brown hair and a small goatee. A battle scar runs down the left side of his face. He wears an eye-patch over his left eye.
Lupus: A black furred lanky wolf with white markings on his front shoulders. A wicked scar has taken his left eye, leaving it a hollow, scarred orb.
Crinos: A towering hulk of black fur, his build is more lithe and quick than muscular. He is still marked by a battle scar running down the right side of his face. White markings, like lightning bolts rest on his collar bone and chest.
“We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and—in spite of True Romance magazines—we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely—at least, not all the time—but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don't see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.” ― Hunter S. Thompson, The Proud Highway: Saga of a Desperate Southern Gentleman, 1955-1967
