Pronunciation of their name:

What does the character think of their name?
Names are very important in their culture. They reflect what kind of person you are and should be and reveals where you come from and who are your family. Meaning and symbolism of names are very important. He is very proud of his names and his heritage.
Why did their parents name them this?:
Family is warrior based so it's kind of a given.
Mother names her children after their third birthday, a tradition in their tribe. Cadman's final name was given to him by the oldest primal clan: Barrel Cade Tribe for protecting them, since there is only six of them left; it was an honor.Father's name and where he hails from makes up their last names.
Why did you, their creator name them this?:
I just threw the name Cadman out there. Basically means "warrior", but break it down and it has different meanings. Cad means "round, like a barrel" and Cade means "a son", Cadman is also known to mean "the maker of barrels, gentle and round". As for his birth name, HumBahl, its two different names combined. The first is from the famous giant warrior named, Humbert. But he's not that famous because you guys are like, what? And Kimball,(i think means "leader") a personal favourite name. I cut it down to ball, and then pronounced to Bahl for ball. There you go. Cadman HumBahl
Do they enjoy these/this nickname(s)?:
He prefers to be called by Cadman. He does not like his nicknames if he was given any.
History behind nickname(s):
In Cadman's case his name he was born into was Humbahl because he was a very large child for his age, seeming to be much older than he really was. He got that from his father, who was a very large primal. When he was young he was set to look after a small clan of stout and petite, intellectual pacifist barrel-makers and tinkers, known as the Cade(pronounced KAD) who were a close an ally to the Culmore Tribe after the death of Cadman and Brynnja's mother.
The supplies of barrels shared were holding prized possessions of the tribes and necessary trade goods. Why anyone would put a young primal in that position of such responsibility is crazy, but that's his father for you. Cadman ended up making friends with the many and treated them gently and often sneaked them mead from Culmore and they would give him in return, enlightenment.
When a rival neighboring tribe attacked, (part of the same group that attacked the fields where his sister was) tried to kill the Cades, Cadman became enraged and killed the attackers. Thus, the name of Cadman was given to him, Defender of the Cade.
Full blood Primal mobian spiny red squirrel and Canadian lynx hybrid, but the lynx stands out more with him than with his sister, who built more squirrel like. He's not yet a false chimera because you can still tell what she has been mixed with nor have the chimera genes.(Primal Mobian/chimera is not a free species. Please remember that they are owned by the Wonder-waffle, NikiNazu, MysticWarrior156 and Bionic-hobo)

Though he deals well with stress, he became well liked in the tribe, unlike his estranged sister. In battle he's a different person, his father taught him to become malicious and cold hearted on the battle field but loyal and protective of his warriors as well as his tribe's well-being.

bone charm and feathers.
Does it has any significance?
The bone charm was a shared gift with his sister, who also has one; it has been blessed by their shaman. It keeps them grounded to this world in case a force tries to take their bodies, it would prevent the abduction or malicious dealings.

Backstory time. Tell about some major events that happened within these ages...
Early childhood (3 - 5):
Was born into the warrior clan of Culmore and called HumBahl. He was covered in dark golden spots, and was a large baby. His sister is four years older than him but he was always taller, and they were inseparateable. His father is deemed the chieftain by the tribe elders.
Mother dies of illness.
Childhood (6 - 9):
Two refugee tribes are welcome to Culmore, making the once clan tribe into a full fledge tribe, the tribe gets a new crest. A war breaks out and many that leave to fight it and many do not return. And the tribe is of record small numbers. He becomes social with tribes, trains with older males and females in the tribe.
Age 8 he is sent to the outskirts of the territory to work with/for the oldest clan, Barrel Cade Tribe. He towered over all of them, because they were a midget race. He acted as a sentry and a messenger boy as well as a supply runner. He often brought mead from his grandfather to give as a gift to Barrel Cade tribe (only six memebers in existence) and in return for his kindness they give him schooling and taught him how to embrace his natural power of healing.
Starts formal schooling by an elder from the largest primal tribe, who lived in the Modern world for some time, as well as studies with the Barrel Cade.
Her Father finds him a suitor for when he comes of age. Training continues.
adolescence/tween(10 - 12):
Culmore location is moved to the lowlands because of hostile neighboring clans and they cannot fight against them without a massacre. Training goes on, excels in swordsmanship.
Still visits the Barrel Cade tribe from time to time, often bringing supplies for them in their new location in "The Mountain", which is still Culmore's territory.
Studies include managing tribe and delegations.
His father puts him in competitions, he loves it and eats up the attention and praise, and gains face markings before his sister.
adolescence/teen(13 - 16):
Age 13, he is taken by his father to join him and the warriors on a battle between a rival clan.
Becomes well respected with other neighboring ally clans, kills his first Ollphéist, and wears part of its pelt on his waist.
While visiting the Barrel Cade Tribe, they are attacked; he goes into a rage and slaughters the attackers. Gained his new name by them, as Cadman.
It is his first battle, Father is impressed, and however by the last battle his father dies in a battle; he survives and takes up his status position as chieftain under the guidance of their grandfather who becomes their caretaker.
Coming of age ritual age 16.
He worried about his sister and her suitors, she will not accept any of them, and he doesn't like any of them anyways. She talks about leaving, this distresses him, but he doesn't try to stop her. His sister kills a suitor and leaves the tribe in self-exile. He is left to manage Culmore alone with his grandfather.
Teen continued (16 - 18):
Manages the tribe, protects them from outside attacks, expands borders, new trades and tribe members.
Marries an outsider from one of the clans he took control of and has a son.
Grandfather starts to lose his mind and rambles on, he take his grandfather to live with the Barrel Cade. The agree to help him ease the illness.
Wife dies of natural causes. Cadman doesn't re-marry and is left to take care of his son alone, as his father had done in the past.
Grandfather goes blind, but is sane again. Culmore expands then is hid by a large resistance, Culmore is almost over run, and his son is killed. They manage to fight off the tribe, killing their chieftain and eating out his heart (as goes tradition).
young adulthood(19 - 25):
Reclames old family lands in the highlands.
Barrel Cad close themselves into "The Mountain" leaving Cadman with a warning he keeps to himself.
His sister returns to the clan with open arms, although she has brought an outsider. Cadman did not like him at first because he was an idiot, but offers to tolerate him for her sake and aids in his re-education. But really he knows his sister brought him to keep Cadman from finding out what she is looking for in the woods.
Family background (Think of generational, prior to your character's existence):
The Ruari are a line of barbaric warrior Primals that settled the highlands before the robotic wars. Constant fighting and raiding took toll on them, some branched out but all were hunted down. A hand full left decided to integrate into neighboring tribes, eventually taking over them; they gave up on conquering tribes and decided to farm barley grains.
Recent controlled settlement called, Culmore was ruled by their grandfather, then their father took over after battling his own father for the position, but he was going blind anyways. Some say it wasn't a fair fight. Their father also took over a brother-tribe, Ruari O'Ullpine on his quest for power, the tribe joined Culmore, and however their crest was long forgotten. When his father died, he takes up a chieftain role while their grandfather is actual superior Monarch figure but once he went blind Cadman took over as main chieftain.
