Góro Yamajín is one of the main figures of my head world, both - protagonist and antagonist due to the specifics of his background.
His concept is pretty far from the world of the endless forest, so I won't go too deep into the true nature of his origin.

Despite the predominance of good chapters, his biography was never destined to stay untouched.

Not the most pleasant person to be around, but definitely the one, who can be called an experienced warrior and a man you can rely on, he lost himself to an endless trail of mistakes.
His wife was the first thread he lost, but that was only a preamble to the years of bloody harvest, during which he was performing the pure art of vengeance.

At the same time, the situation in his country was unstable and remained so throughout his life, thus gradually brought his existence to its logical conclusion.

The death was rapid as a water flow.



He never had a full name, but got a moniker back in his youth, that later become his surname and played a big part in the development of his personality.

山人 - [やまじん] - Yamajín.

Succinct, composed of the two common nouns: yama and jin, this word can be loosely translated as "man-mountain".
The short version of his name, however, contains only the second syllable - ま.

後臈魔 - [ごろう'ま] - góro'ma - gróma - góro - ró ∥ wingless hornet*

Also known as:
paranoik - gorenator - ro-dolph - rotten samurai - rusty kettle
romohúm [russian word, wrote backwards. means "fly agaric"]
gorá [another russian word. means "mountain"]



男 - [male] - omnisexual - undead - as big as an adult male moose*
voice prototype - Akio Ohtsuka*

Appears as a big human-faced beast*, heavily inspired by the anatomy of the moose.

Every muscle and bone of his body is formed into a natural armor frame, covered with a thick layer of tightly connected
chitinous scales*- velvety to the touch and completely
indistinguishable from a distance.

The silhouette of his back concludes with a huge bone formation, naturally formed out of the thoracic vertebrae.
Not a static construction.
Moves depending on the position
of the nearest muscles.

His ribcage is a furnace, framed by a pair of normally, yet rudimentary lungs. Whatever he eats is not digests, but turns into a steam and comes out of his body through the horns and trachea.
The smell of the steam, however, doesn't depend
on a source, and its compound can be changed manually.

His own scent is a mix of a fresh meat, dried bones and some kind of tibetan incence.

When heated enough, his skin becomes red*

Horns are represented as two hollow vessels.
Inspired by cows of watusi breed*

Occasionally turns into a big toad*
Doesn't like to be touched or carried around
in this form, usually uses it to rest and cool down.

Possesses:
the wooden mask*, gifted by Noelle,
asymmetrical antlers, gifted by "Four"
a flask of a strange perfume, gifted by Cherra,
a pouch of dried fly agarics and a bottle of sake,
and a strange-looking lantern, gifted by Lupen.



A ronin.
The last loyal ally.
Once a samurai and a man of war.

- A realist and a straightforward man
- Sees the world through his own crooked prism
- Found his peace in meditation and narcotic substances
- Married to his sword
- Loves tempura
- Zhaba

Not always depressed, but always reserved. Very rare experiences empathy, however, is a good listener and a much better storyteller. Can be way too charismatic if drunk.

Is questioning his sexual orientation since the day he saw another man in a dress and choke on sake.

Once tried to commit a seppuku, but, obviously, didn't die and lost an hour of time getting his guts back in place.

Gave his right eye to a blind deity during the deal.
Was later deceived and obliged to punish them,
but never got the eye back.



Along his way, Goro have met a lot of different personalities. And they were all so unique, so self-sufficient, that I simply don't want to classify them into groups. I'm not sure, if this is an upsetting fact for anyone or not, but I'm used to showing my character's attitude through the in-game interaction.

Of course, Goro has, and will always have his preferences and priorities, and he defines them clearly, but making the first move is definitely not his style. However, his closest ones should know that he will always appreciate their existence in his life.

If you're interested in forming any kind of relationship between him and your character, better let me know - approach us directly in the forest, or message me via discord.

You make nice drawings, I hope you post some more. I like the way you drew the deer's face and the feet.

[e] Hi! Sorry I led all those deers to nowhere just now. I thought I heard Flyleaf's name but it turns out I just have a very bad memory for pictograms.

I'm waiting for your forest

I'm waiting for your forest arts too. I believe you can add an absolutely new facet in this place with your art, as I remember it.

But also I remember your forest giant more of a pagan/ethnic. He has changed his shape indeed.
