About Shamus

Shamus the cat is an ancient creature, measuring his life in eons not years, from parts unknown in a dimension adjacent to our own. While not omnipotent, and answering to a mysterious power even beyond his own imagination, Shamus is a creature of immense power, power not fully revealed to any human observer.

Unlike the human species, Shamus is a creature of order and duty, always fulfilling his obligations, albeit in his own unique and often amusing way. It is said that the Cat will not cease in his effort to wrangle the human race towards a good end until he has fulfilled his mission.
