Kokou is a powerful shape-shifter from southern Africa. Leopard-skinned, he’s wise for his youth, and has inherited the task of watching over those who live off the land south of the equator.
He’s sometimes considered war-like because of his readiness to fight and his strong (and easily offended) sense of honor, but he’s a worthy ally. Unfortunately, earning his trust can be difficult due to his strict code of honor and dishonor.
Kokou is also one of those people groups who were categorized as a member of one of the Seven Peoples without permission. (Think magical imperialism at its best.)
Currently, Kokou’s people are placed in “The Darkness” because they hunt, and that “devour” ability is considered key to that identification.
