Species: King Cobra
Personality/ Bio: Shen is quite the sad character- his mother dieing while giving birth to him and his father, also dieing when he was young (trying to protect him and his brother Sichi)- his life was filled with nothing but blood shed from the beginning. He keeps to himself, letting no one know of his true feelings, his appearance now makes him loathe himself and hate his life. He thinks his true self is grotesue and hidious- unable to live in a society as his own. Shen, when exposed to the right conditions can be loving, kind, gentle and everything a snake isn't. He doesn't show it much but his compassion and consern for others is shown. Shen doesn't want to aknowledge the fact that he loves a human girl- 'behind the secens' he makes sure her life is perfect and lets no one who hurts her get away with it. He is truly a gentle soul at heart but, events in his life cause him to hide those emotions.
Bio: Shen, when he was born, he grew up with a girl named Ayana. By the age of 5 he told himself that she was his 'soul mate', even at such a young age he made up his mind about it. He cared for her and tended to her wounds and made sure she was protected from everything. When he turned 7 he 'grew into' his Anima form. A king cobra, attaining both a tail, retractable fangs, claws, etc. When this happend he was utterly confused and defensless, as a new born cobra would be. Just as cobras, he cares a deadly poison within his fangs. After the change he lashed out, attacking anyone who came near, not even his older brother Sichi, a wolf Anima, who had been taking care of him. Once he had 'snapped out' of his phsycho-like-trance he couldn't help but feel helpless and defeted, knowing that now Ayana would never accept him. Knowing this he never smiled for years to come and his life felt as if a dark cloud lingered over him-
When he turned 13, his life, felt as if it wern't going to get any better, just worse. So, he tried killing himself, with his fathers' old sword- his attempt failed, when Sichi saved him. He now bares a scar (on his tail ) that reminds him of how close to death he had come. Now he is stableish- and Now lives mostly in solitutude and makes sure Ayana is always happy.
