Daughter of Kartal, strongest of his clan, Sharneste was taken into the forest as a cub and hidden by her mother when the clan was attacked by a rival clan over hunting grounds. Her mother went back to help fight and no one ever came back for her. She's been alone ever since, eating what she can catch.
"Me be strong, like Papa. Papa strong. Papa good. Papa say if it talk, it not food. So me not eat what talk, even if you kill. Me miss Papa...."
Sharneste doesn't have shoes - her paw-like feet are pretty thick-skinned. The two piece outfit she's wearing (apparently some sort of tanned animal hide) also seems to be very old and worn, and a couple of sizes too small. She's apparently been wearing the same outfit for some time.
