Jumanah Nightstalker

Bio:

Jumanah grew up the daughter of a simple fishing family on the rivers of the Scavenger Lands. Too far from any one city to gain the protection of any, the Village of Cheerosh is regularly raided by pirates, bandits, and the occasional wandering monster or dangerous animal. Most of the people in the village would flee to the trees to let the pirates take what they would or would hide indoors when someone spotted a river dragon.

Then, at 16, Jumanah found a single spear that one careless pirate had left while grabbing after a villager who had been too slow to run. Jumanah kept that spear and waited, knowing they’d taken her friend and neighbor Akira to a life of slavery or worse, knowing that her village was barely scraping by because people kept showing up to take things they’d worked long and hard for.

It was foolish, but she didn’t care. She decided she would guard their village and fight. She prayed to every god or goddess she could think of and she waited.

She probably would have died, racing at the first pirate with that spear, if Luna had not appeared to her in the form of the Bloody Huntress seconds before the river pirates landed. She was Exalted in that moment and she was able to adopt her War Form to slaughter several of the pirates. She then convinced the Captain to never trouble their shores again.

She might have had other problems had a rescue pack not appeared shortly thereafter. They took Jumanah west, into the wilds, where she met with her mentor Vainan. Vainan taught her the ways of the Lunars and took her through her trials. Flexible in her approach and as willing to talk as to fight, Jumanah was marked as a Changing Moon caste a year later, neither so bloody and intense as to make a good Full Moon nor so tricky and scholarly as to make a good No Moon.

Eventually, though, she made her way back to Cheerosh. While she’s had some thoughts about adding them to the Thousand Rivers Experiment, in truth she merely returned to become their protector and patroness. She set up a home nearby so as not to trouble them and appears in one guise or another when trouble threatens them. She spends the rest of her time stalking other forms to take or hunting food to eat. Still, she feels that she has not yet touched on her real destiny, and that it may be bigger than the Stewardship she has taken on thus far.
