Info[edit | edit source]

Unlike the wild lightning he commands, the Thunderbringer is marked by his calm patience and careful adherence to the ancient Beast protocols and etiquette. Though considered a bit of a fogey by others, he is an undeniable master of shamanic lore and a powerful wielder of mystic energies.
