In-Game Description

Why would anyone breed a human with ram and yak DNA?  It seems I was "manufactured" to be the demigod of an ancient cult of assassins.  I take it all with a grain of salt, but, still, I strongly suggest you do as we say.


Ram Yak!  The name just popped into my head one day, I think while watching television.  It's ludicrous yet suggestive at the same time, and I had to use it.

The names of his ninjas (seen above) follow a tight theme.  First, there is Ram Yak himself, named after two 3-letter animals.  Then his three minions were given names of 3-letter grains.  Both rams and yaks are herbivores, after all.  Thus his two lieutenants have the names of 4-letter grains, indicating their higher rank.  Finally, Wheat, his boss Oni, is named for a 5-letter grain.  I'm not sure anyone ever noticed the pattern, but I had planned it from the moment his first ninja was summoned.

Ram Yak's battle cry would almost always get a laugh the first time someone heard it.  I like that in a battle cry.  ;)

He looks great.  To my eyes, it fully lives up to his name.  He has the ram horns, of course.  His strong squareish face with the Fu-Manchu moustache add the needed yakkiness.  (And you got up this morning being sure you would not see the word "yakkiness"!)

He eventually would have become a rogue.  He and his ninjas aren't in it to cause suffering.  They're just in it for the money.

One thing I feel bad about.  Of all the jobs in the world, what about the poor person who has to keep the horseshoe on his chest shaved and trim?
