Uncas

Tribeless Mohican Warrior

Description:

Full blooded Mohican (or Mahican “people of the waters that are never still”)
6’5" tall, muscular
Black hair, partly shaved and pulled back into a short braid
Native tongue: Algonquian

Bio:

Standing at 6’5”, Uncas was the epitome of the Mohican warrior. He and his brethren had successfully defended his tribe from Mohawk raids on numerous occasions. Being renowned for his strength and courage it seemed that one day he would surely become a War Leader. Fate, however, had seemingly chosen a far less glorious path for this champion.
The small pox that destroyed his village left Uncas scarred far more profoundly than the pox marks on his face. The plague claimed each and every member of his clan, and brought Uncas himself to the brink of death. How he survived on his own is still a mystery to him, but upon his recovery, and seeing the corpses of his proud warrior brothers, Uncas knew that he had been cursed.
Regarded as a pariah by other tribes, Uncas wandered south looking for purpose. He offered up his axes to whomever would take him on. Embittered by his tragedy, he feels no sympathy for his enemies, and finds little solace in companionship. Seven years after the loss of his tribe, Uncas longs to join his ancestors in the afterlife, but refuses to shame himself by taking his own life.

Guardian Spirit: Wolf
Associated Medicine: War
The Wolf spirit carries with it powerful
hunting medicine. Packs of wolves teach young
Indians to travel in numbers and select only prey
offered by the nature spirits. This is the guardian
spirit of powerful war leaders and legendary
chiefs.
Due to the required oath, yeller characters can
never have a Wolf guardian spirit. Many of those
who are favored by this spirit have the nerves o’
steel Edge.
White: The spirit grants the speed of the wolf
favor, with an Appeasement point value equal to
the points currently stored in the guardian spirit
when the ability is invoked. No Appeasement is
spent; this is just to determine the effect of the
favor.
Red: The spirit grants the spirit warrior favor,
with an Appeasement point value equal to the
points currently stored in the guardian spirit
when the ability is invoked. No Appeasement
points are spent. This is just to determine the
effect of the favor. You can allot these points any
way you want.
Blue: Automatically refill the guardian spirit’s
Appeasement point pool.
Legend: On a successful Hard (9) Spirit roll,
increase the guardian spirit Edge by +1.
Oath: Never leave the field of battle until you
are victorious. Never concede to cowardice
(including running away from something, even
involuntarily.
