Sú 
Zu 



is a ‘shadow creature’ from the Washí clan. Born backwards, an omen amongst the Washí, they were sent to live as an outcast near the river Okonik. Sú Zu’s greatest strength is their perceived weakness. Never having learnt language, they have developed an excellent ear for sound, and can mimic and understand countless species. It is believed that Sú Zu can even undestand the Language of Trees. While there are many rumors about Sú Zu, they live a quiet and gentle life, taking only what they need and giving back when they take. They, unlike the Washí, know that their survival is intimately linked to that of the forest.
