earthshakerLike a golem or gargoyle, Earthshaker was one with the earth but now walks unreservedly upon it. Unlike those other creatures, he formed himself through an act of will, and serves no other master. In agitated sleeps, covered in a deep seam of stone, he became conscious of the life flowing freely above him. He grew inquisitive. During a season of earthquakes, the peaks of Nishai shook themselves loose of landslides, shifting the course of rivers and turning one-dimensional valleys into never-ending chasms. When the land finally finished quaking, Earthshaker stepped from the settling dust, throwing aside massive boulders as if tossing off a light blanket. He had formed himself in the image of an earthly beast, and named himself Raigor Stonehoof. He bleeds now, and breathes, and as a result, he can die. However, his spirit is still that of the earth; he carries its command in the magical totem that never leaves him.
