Shelomoh Mashlim is the complementizer part of speech in “Milhamah: Fighting Words.” He is a low-level bureaucrat who works for the provincial government in ‘Ir Risshum (formerly Yerushalayim).
When Mashlim is not at his depressing pay clerk office, he is at peace and glows with an iridescent halo. He tries to be perfect employee, diving into work wholeheartedly to complete it on time.
But the Bavel Macrostructure breed corruption. And as Mashlim’s work culture grows more corrupt, so do the policies. Local suppliers get ripped off in a sea of bribes. Managers scoff at even the concept of counting numbers. Embezzlement, graft and grifting overflow.
Amid all this, Mashlim tries to be sincere and diplomatic. But even his repository of folk wisdom, parables and fables leave him empty for answers. So he keeps his head down and tries to escape attention. His glow dims. And he waits patiently.
Though this crisis threatens his serenity, he hears rumors about this Holy Tongue Society. And suddenly, a new future is possible: one where he rules instead of taking orders, and metes out some payback of his own.
Mashlim’s powers are based off the שלם shoresh root and its family. He is good at tuning into his teammates to complement and synergize their attack. His Opal Glow dazzles opponents, and his ability to meditate on wisdom gives him high willpower against mental and spiritual attacks. His demeanor can also calm and pacify enemy aggression, especially when amplified by his bardic poetry.
