Wickerbeast are a species created by daemonlady! This is my personal one I designed. It's markings are based off the Skull Wickerbeast I got in Furvilla since I loved that marking design and wanted to keep that aesthetic when I made my custom version. I figured out after making it that wings are extremely not standard on this species!!! So I guess he's a hybrid of some sort. :X The ones in FV are much fluffier than standard as well and more like "King Wickerbeast"? So maybe he is some sort of.. fluffy dragon wickerbeast, I dunno! Or the wings are just worn magical appendages..? who knows.
Sam is a fierce warrior. Check him out on FV here: http://www.furvilla.com/villager/117926
His name, when pronounced properly, is: ˈsaʊ.wɛn but I have no issues with it being pronounced as "Sam-hayn" since that's typically how I read it. (So wrong..) His nickname is simply Sam though.
