Since the Norms were pushed back entirely to their cities, they reinitiated an old nature magic. It enables them to eliminate their foes already far in the heartland. Since this magic demands the sacrifice of a newborn human being, it was forbidden ages ago and disappeared into oblivion. Only the great despair that came with the beginning of the Fourth Dominance War gave reason to revive the disputed magic.

Clericon: Cyclamen

Right after birth, the newborn child must be poisoned with a cyclamen and left in a magical stone circle on a hill in the heartland.
After some months, nature takes posession of the child and grants him tremendous power – the power of nature and life. Part animal, part human, part plant, the cyclamen grows out of the soil.
A single glance is enough to transform the life energy of the attacker into nature’s energy.

From time to time, the parents or relatives of the once human child come to present oblations. However, except for a few characteristics, the cyclamen does not have any humane features. It has now become a part of nature. It can reach an age of over 500 years before it withers.

concepts are coming soon....

my idea is to equip the cyclamen with huge moose horns...

This is a great concept, I think I would try mixing up the look in the thumbnails though, the tops,they all seem too similar. I like the Shaman feel to a few of them. Nice work and good luck!
