Family
parents both murdered; no siblings; no romantic relationships; no offspring

Appearance
cloaked in chocolate, he is a man of fine muscle and stature, standing 19hh at the pinnacle of his growth and physical fitness. muscles ripple across his back and limbs, pulled taut and hard to the touch, carving out every meticulous detail of his face and skeleton. the coat is the colour of a rich black chocolate, bittersweet to the taste but delicious and moreish nonetheless. to run eyes over it, it would look like the finest quality velvet, shimmering with a green sheen in particular lights, however to touch it is coarse and rough, littered with imperfections and scars gathered over many years accompanying the uruk horde. deep taupe dapples spiral outwards from a central point on his left shoulder, subtle yet defining as they diffuse outwards and leave space for chestnut points on the hock, knee, muzzle, chin, and underneath of the barrel.

a fourth layer of colour is added to the magnificent hide in off-white interrupted stripes painted upon his arched neck, rump and eyelids. his eyes are a dull blue as the sky on a cloudy day, and his hair a tousled mane of waves, fading from black to an ombre of slate grey as it brushes the floor from both the dock and the arch of the neck. feathered cream wings with a 25ft wingspan spread with an air of royalty and superiority from his shoulders, most often held out in proud stance unless cold weather requires they be tucked into his sides.

Personality
an asexual, shulmanu is quietened by his interesting past and lack of desire to be social. it takes a great amount of effort for a creature to gain shulmanu's attraction, for he first must be the closest of friends with such creature before further feelings can even be considered. combined with a lack of desire to make an effort in being sociable, shulmanu is often percieved to be somewhat of a loner, left to dream inside his head and speak very few words to even those he holds dear.

should you gain shulmanu's friendship enough for him to open up to you, it is seen that he can be a genuine gentleman, polite and kind even while his position within the uruk horde mightn't suggest of such a gentle nature. he will speak with grace, a particular elegance and regalness, while not at all sounding conceited or self important. he can hold a conversation, often with the occasional humorous addition and kind compliment, to such an extent that many wonder why he drowns himself in silence at all.

in fact, shulmanu is not at all the character one would expect to partake in the uruk's violent activities, and thus it is apparent that he merely happened to belong there out of coincidence. he is not naturally evil nor violent, and if not for his family-like position within the horde he may be considered a pacifist. t'is due to his simple history that he has become involved with the controversial ways of gilgamesh's gang, and he is not unhappy about it. his position requires no evil or harm to be done to innocents, and his ruthless streak will only rarely be unleashed when in the situation of preserving himself or his uruk family.

History
born into a non-uruk family, shulmanu's herd was raided as he was only a mere month old. he watched his mother raped and murdered, his father tortured for information and disposed of with disgusting brutality, but he was not scarred. no fear remains in his head, for it happened so young he could barely distinguish the wrong from the right. all the man knew was he grew up without parents, under the rule of the uruk. such atrocities happened to his blood relatives before the uruk reviewed its rules and ways to prevent the disgusting acts of abuse though still remaining a horde to be revered and feared.

he grew up with a young gilgamesh, becoming friends with him quickly; the friendship would last long into gil's leading reign over the uruk. it was within these years that shulmanu became a true part of the horde, becoming a scout who would fly ahead before raids, looking out for 'points of interest' and vulnerable spots of a herdland that should be attacked first. with this status in the horde he gained a black eagle familiar named rade, whom quickly became a treasured companion in flight and rest. shulmanu adapted into this position so quickly that it became his soul interest in life. if his parents had been taken just a few months later, if everything had been shifted two months down the line, no doubt the outcome would be nothing the same. this history only works because shul was so young when it was written, too young to know truly what happened to his parents and to miss them as any normal foal might. instead, he knew and still to this day knows only of the uruk, and how important it is to him. the uruk is his family, and as far as he cares to think, it always has been.

Additional Info
rade, the male black eagle

one of the larger of his species, rade is a fierce black eagle with a 1.9 metre wingspan and onyx black feathers. his eyes, talons and beak are a cruel golden yellow and his fanned tail displays faint caramel barring, as do his magnificent wings.

much like shulmanu himself, rade keeps to himself but has a slightly crueler characteristic than his companion. he often urges his equine counterpart to partake in the horde's battles, which shul will later regret. there is a distinct love-hate relationship between the two, though rade will always stick by shulmanu's side.
