History

Pre-RP

Swift River was the youngest of 5, his mother gave him a necklace with a bright blue plant in a sacred pattern. He was told this was a heirloom past down to the youngest, to help guide them on the path to their destiny.

Swift River was training to be a hunter at the age of 11 under the teachings of Falling Mountain when the hunters became the hunted, and Swift River mauled by a bear creature. While he came out fine, his right leg's was severely injured, the medicine man gave Rising Moon grave news that he wouldn't be able to run and chase down game like a hunter anymore. Depressed, he left the tribe and lived alone for a long while until he met a Gaueko wolf shaman by the name of Great Oak..

Great Oak was wandering village to village looking for a specific plant to cure an illness happening in his home village. The wolf's eye was caught on to Swift River's heirloom, which contained what he needed. The Wolf asked if he would like to trade for the heirloom for some rare silk, Swift River refused. He asked the pup if he would like to journey with him back to his home village, in trade for the heirloom, Swift River refused again. Giving a sigh and not knowing if he would find another plant like it any time soon, he asked if he would trade it to be able to hunt again, noticing the lad's posture that indicated a weak leg. Swift River asked how that could be possible, Great Oak answered by offering him to learn the ways of nature summoning. He claimed it was not coincidence, but the spirits at work that guided him to meet Swift River.

During his training Swift River had summoned a young wolf and was instructed to befriend it. The wolf and Swift River became close friends, and even let Swift River ride him. Great Oak then began to teach how Swift River could communicate, and thus allow Swift River to hunt without his right leg be a problem. After Swift River could communicate with the wolf to some extent, Great Oak suggested naming him. Swift River thought it over for a long while, and during a swim had decided to name the wolf “Blue Moon” after looking up at the moon while under water.

While not a master of his art, he vows to use summoning to protect his allies but not to hunt. As long as he has Blue Moon, there is no need for tricks.
