The Game of Kings, Wave Three: The Black King's Bishop by 

The Black King’s Bishop (The Shaman)
Artist: Simon Sherry
Biography: Danny

Descendants of an ancient race, the Shaman have links to the old ways, ways observed before man was the dominant species of the world. The shaman is spiritual overlord of the army and is answerable only to the king. Legend has it the ancestors of the king tricked the shaman – even then a dying breed- to serve him and in doing so bound their loyalty to all kings that followed for all time.
Shaman have become an intricate link in the chain that have evolved into the Armies of the Black Spear and it’s development into the warrior nation it has now become.

The Shaman through majik and selective breeding have created the Black Knights, Monoliths, Basilisk and Pawn Spawn
The Shaman does not regret or harbor resentment for things past and is totally loyal to the king and the betterment of the Army of the Black Spear.

The Shaman splits itself into two distinct personalities when it enters the battle controlling each body with either side of its brain.

Left for Queen – Right for King.
