History: Tareiko was born human, but was captured at the age of 9 by slavers who sold him to a Dragon lord named Yrri'Ai'Shalkalan. Yrri'Ai'Shalkalan was, by all accounts, a cruel master who used a powerful form of mind-control on his slaves and often forced them to fight each other in an arena deep within his city. Five years after his capture, Tareiko was transformed during one of these fights by a "werelion" who had been driven to insanity and could no longer be controlled. After another year, he managed to resist his master's mind-control and, with only his fangs and claws, managed to kill the young Dragon.
In the ensuing mad rush of the suddenly-liberated slaves, he was knocked unconscious. He spend fourteen days wandering a barren wasteland before being found by Dragon Lord Rrri'Nar'Ai'Kuacien. Despite a long weariness about his new, though infinitely more benevolent, master, the two became close friends. It was at this Dragon's behest, that a nearby Mira'Ktahi family, the Aru'Yna, adopted him. His new family life was not without problems, especially from his adopted elder brother.
It has been four years, almost to the day, that he became a member of the Aru'Yna, and he decided he would catch a nice deer to help with the celebration to be held in his honor. He spent the last few hours after sunrise tracking a large buck that had started to wander into the desert. Suddenly, Tareiko stopped. He looked carefully at a burnt stump of what had been a young tree. With a sniff, he caught an all-too-familiar scent. It was obvious from the large circle of soot that it had been a Dragon's work. But the scent coming from that dead tree wasn't just of charcoal, but the flaming saliva of a Dragon. This particlular Dragon had burned the crazed werelion in front of him as he transformed, chained to a rock. It was 'Shalkalan's father—Yrri'Nar'Tra'Ai'Shalkalan...
