Shamar appeared to be just as old as King Solomon. Unlike King Solomon, he sported a beard of grey and wore scars upon his face as if they were badges of honour. Like King Solomon, he also wore a crown of grey upon his head that sat in contrast to his onyx-black skin. Unlike King Solomon, his face did not bear a smile but was still. Almost devoid of emotion, his brown eyes forever watchful.
Despite King Solomon's renown on the battlefield, it was Shamar that their enemies feared most. On his back was his great sword, Griffin. A blade that had earned as much infamy on the battlefield as Shamar himself. A large double-edged sword rested on his back. The pommel of the sword was a griffin's head, and the guard looked as if silver wings in flight.
