Ghosts of Cities Past
Shimarith "The Golden Scar" Vashir
His clan was annihilated in a raid when he was a child, possibly by a rival clan, although he’s not too sure since he was quite young and the event was rather traumatic. He was captured and sold off into slavery. Too young and bestial looking to be a house servant, he was thrown into the gladiator pits for sport. He barely survived his first year. To this day Vashir has a vicious scar that runs from his collarbone to navel to remind him of his violent upbringing.
Though he began as little more than a freak show attraction in the arena, his pugilistic nature and sheer size propelled him out of the anonymity of the lower gladiatorial ranks. Vashir continues to wear his pitted iron slave collar after all these years, although it is worn more like loose arm bracelet as it no longer fits around his neck.
