Character: "Inuko" (Original name: Xa'tac'tani)
Real name: Shannon Davis
Special Abilities: Shapeshifter, general wolf abilities
Xa'tac'tani was born in the shadowed depths of the Amazon Ranforest. She was part of a secretive, ancient tribe of animal shapeshifters decended from the Mayan Gods who were able to take on the magical forms and characteristics of whatever spirit totem they were born with. Although seemingly healthy and normal, the Jaguar Elders of the tribe were intrigued by her; Inuko was very unique in that her totem was an animal not found in their native land: the wolf. This had not happened in the tribe for thousands of years!
Seeking answers, she left the tribe after her coming-of-age and began wandering the world, disguised as a "dog", to find answers. During her travels she meets up with the other Element Warriors and descovers that her wolf traits were directly linked to her being a part of them. Since many cannot pronounce her original name, Xa'tac'tani goes by "Inuko", meaning "Cry of the Dog" in Japanese. (That's still where the story takes place, right? *behind on things*).
