Coran was a normal baby squirrel brought up by normal, peaceful parents until he was about four. A band of vermin came through their area of the woods, slaughtering a small colony of squirrels, and his parents. Ever since then, Coran wandered the lands, slaughtering any vermin he came in contact to with such ferocity that he is very sparsely known, due to the fact that there were no vermin left from any of his attacks. Strangely enough, Coran is an omnivore, and frequently will eat his slain foes. He will throw himself against all odds, regardless of the foe's powers. He has killed more than your average warrior.
