Damien Priest is the last living member of the Horned Tribe of the Valiant Sphere whose tribe was hunted as part of the great cleansing that took place within the Valiant Empire.
He was saved from slavery by The Legion Association's Cowboy Shit, Alicia Jimenez and at present is a Student Legionnaire in her class at the Continental Academy as part of the White Wolves.
Damien does not play well with others. He has always seen himself as a lone wolf, isolating himself away from larger groups. He can become overwhelmed easily, often lashing out in anger and frustration at the slightest bit of pressure or adversity. For a kid he displays an incredibly foul mouth and rude manner in the way he speaks to people.
Damien is naturally competitive, he revels at the opportunity to prove he's better than someone else and this also makes him a sore-loser.
History & BackstoryEdit

- His mother was the last of her tribe and his father was a regular human and her owner.
