I’ve been itching to revive some of my older characters to act as supporting characters in my current headworld! This here’s Rhashan Anansi, who I created back in 2008 - click here for his hella embarrassing original draft.
I’ve long had this idea for a werebeast who’s missing a limb - if the amputation occurred at birth or through trauma before infection with werevirus, the individual regrows the limb when shifted due to the accelerated healing found in all werecreatures.
Which brings us to the new Rhashan! He’s a werelion hailing from Haiti, and lost his arm to infection following a terrible compound fracture he got in a car accident. He’s involved a bit in some of Jay’s initial magic training, as he is familiar with earth magic and Haitian Vodou. His parents were also close friends with Jay’s father.
After Jacob Bijeau’s death, Rhashan and his mother invited now-runaway Jay to come stay with them for a few months at their home in Atlanta, Georgia. They also put her in contact with the local werewolf packs.
Rhashan and Jay were romantically involved for a while, but they parted amicably when she left for Europe and still keep in contact today.
At some point he travels to London to catch up with Jay and meets the rest of the crew, but I haven’t thought too far past that.
