Notes: Crescent Claw has unfortunately inherited some of her father’s temperament and suffers from The Curse of the Lone Wolf virtue flaw.
It has been long rumored that Crescent Claw was not birthed by any mother but rather born from the scream of Scar Fang’s rage as he fought against the treachery of the Scarlet Empress. Others claim that it was Luna herself who sent the young girl to her Champion and that she emerged from a pillar of moonlight as cold and frigid as the half-caste’s heart and gaze.
The more likely truth is that one day a lovely maiden happened upon the mighty Scar Fang as he lay lazy and warm in a shaft of sunlight, and after a very pleasant afternoon together Crescent Claw came to be in the months that followed. His daughter encourages all former rumors, however, because soft and sweet things disgust her.
Crescent Claw is always pushing her limits and striving to grow stronger. She grudgingly cares for the Sisters that she captains very much, but often grows frustrated with her “pack” and any incompetence she perceives. This often drives her to handle challenges by herself with the belief that only she is strong enough to face adversity and others are weaklings who much be protected.
She is very critical of the Deliberative, believing the past will only repeat itself and all Solars will one day be driven to madness. Internally, she is conflicted because while one day she wants to achieve the power and greatness of her sire, she fears that becoming a Lunar would mean becoming chained to an unworthy Solar. Unwilling to relinquish her freedom, she sees only two choices if this were to happen: become a slave to someone weaker, or be reduced to something weak and subservient to someone stronger. The thought that it might be an equal partnership is an impossibility and has never crossed her mind.
