Some weird hippie Indian Shaman freaky Graham Greene looking dood emerges from the forest and bestows upon you a familiar, totem animal, animal sidekick or [Insert Term Here], to emulate you and do your evil bidding.

Given our nations current blood lust, it would be good to be reminded of the horrors of war that still shows the soldiers in a compassionate light.
