Tighearnach Éamonn Mallon
Tighearnach has a strong sense of loyalty. If you are family or friend, he will risk his life for you; even if you don't deserve it. He is extremely calm in a situation, and knows when he's been beaten. This doesn't mean that he easily gives up, though - quite the contrary. He will fight until he can't run anymore. Then, he'll fight some more.
He is a genius in multiple areas. Firstly, he is an extremely skilled doctor; and even that is an understatement. Secondly, he is great at falsifying records and covering up tracks. He is a fast thinker - especially on his feet. He adores gambling, and is quite confident in that skill. Honestly, he's a bit reckless and ambitious. Also, he's got a great sense of humor, even on the darkest days.
His moral compass is a little skewed. He files people into two categories: important, and unimportant. You are important if you are family, friend, or someone in need of help; he loves helping people whenever he can. You are unimportant if you are anyone else. And if you are unimportant, he may lie or cheat or steal to help the important people. He won't feel guilty about it, either. In his mind, he did the right thing.
Tighearnach is a little bit of a flirt, but he takes things very seriously. He is extremely dependable; he will die before letting you down. And he will move heaven and earth to make sure that you have what you need; even at the expense of other people.
He enjoys competition; specifically, combat. He is excellent at self-defense, though his abilities have been somewhat hindered in that area due to his now-poor eyesight. His swimming skills are also through the roof; he can match a professional swimmer any day. He also feels very at home in water, and spends much of his time meandering underwater. He takes pride in his abilities and work.
Tighearnach was born in Dublin, Ireland. He was the oldest sibling, and four years after his birth, his brother, Seachnall, was born. He and Seachnall never quite got along; Seachnall was more boisterous and impolite, while Tighearnach was more mild-mannered and thoughtful. Tighearnach experienced his first shift when he was seven years old; much to his dismay, he was a Christmas Tree Worm that couldn't even hurt a fly if it wanted to. Seachnall, who shape-shifted two years later, showed himself to be a Robin. Tighearnach's jealousy of his brother's shift-form only deepened their rivalries.
Well, both brothers grew up, and followed different lifestyles. Tighearnach got into the bad habit of secretly gambling and playing poker. He grew skilled at it, and quickly became the best poker-player of his peers. During this secret gambling, he also began to study single-celled biology and human anatomy. A fascination for bacteria and anatomy bloomed quickly, and he soon realized that he wanted to become a doctor. Meanwhile, Seachnall followed a life of crime. He joined a gang, and things quickly turned south for him.
Among other things, Tighearnach also learned to play the Clarinet and drums. He attended, at seventeen years old, a top-notch College of Medicine and graduated early (20 years old) with honors. He immediately started a career as a doctor that specialized in exotic diseases. Tighearnach knew a nurse who knew his secret; she kept his shape-shifting abilities a secret even when his blood was drawn on a regular basis. She frequently urged him to consider a different field; treating sick patients would, no doubt, get him sick at some point. Then, there was only so much she could do to protect his secret.
But Tighearnach refused to quit. He knew that he would eventually be discovered, but he felt his calling to practice medicine. He wasn't about to ignore it, and he wasn't about to turn his back on sick people just to save his own skin. He wanted to save lives, even if it cost his.
One day, when Tighearnach was meandering down an alley, Seachnall came to him. The two brothers had not been in contact for several years, but Seachnall looked desperate. He apologized to Tighearnach, and told him that he wouldn't see him again. When Tighearnach probed for an explanation, Seachnall said that the police were on Robin-shifter's tail. He had stolen something of extreme value, and no doubt his abilities would be discovered and he would be sent to the Menagerie. Seachnall hugged Tighearnach goodbye, and ran off on the tiny chance that he would escape the police. Tighearnach wasn't about to let his brother be sent to the Menagerie, though.
So Tighearnach quickly pulled some strings, and made it look as though he himself had committed the theft. He escaped the police, and thanks to Tighearnach's efforts, so did Seachnall. Tighearnach hopped on a plane as quick as he could, and it carried him to London. When he arrived, he hopped on another plane. He wasn't about to be caught by the police. He would globe-trot for his entire life if he needed to. The plane took him to Shanghai, and he boarded one last flight that took him to Tokyo. He was nearly twenty-one years old.
He gave himself a new name, and tried to build some sort of life in Japan. He found popularity among the people who were too poor to go to a doctor; he treated them for very little pay. He saved many lives, and made quite a number of close friends.
After two years in Japan, things changed. Alas, echoing the warnings of the nurse he once knew, he grew very ill. He was treated for his illness, and from his blood, the doctors discovered that he was a shifter. So they locked him up, and shipped him like an animal to the Menagerie. He spent a little over a year being experimented on, until finally, he was chucked into the Menagerie.
