Removing seams was also offered by Soom for Shoshon in normal skin, at an additional cost. However, seam removal was not offered on his bronze version, and Soom discourages others of sanding the tan resin.
Shoshon parts will hybrid easily onto other male Soom Mega Gem bodies. The resin will match Soom's ‘Normal’ color, though aging and neglected care may cause the resin to yellow, making the match a little off. His bronze version may or may not match future Soom bronze resins, seeing that Soom has a large variety of tan resins. Mega Gem head parts will not hybrid onto Super Gem bodies, or vice-versa, because of the size of the necks and neck holes. Mega Gem heads may hybrid onto Iplehouse’s EID male bodies, though resin match is debatable. More research is required to see what other dolls he will blend with.
Shoshon’s Story Line
Shoshon was born with a Reinelk body. He has huge antlers on the top of his head, and he is supported by two strong, massive hooves. Among all of the Cánë precursors, he was the very first one to be born. Just like the others to follow, Shoshon had to complete a task: training for ten thousand years before he could enter into the world of Pella. Every one thousand years, the Taule opens the door of Pella by making flowers bloom, and only the Cánë who have fulfilled their duty can pass through.
However, Shoshon wanted to avoid the accumulation of trainings during that long period, and preferred to find another way to Pella. There is another constantly opened road to Pella, but it is so rough and dangerous that no one has ever succeeded walking through it. A canyon continuously shaken by earthquakes and a desert where the heat is so unbearable that it is impossible to trample on the sand are a few of the numerous hardships gathered on this never-ending path.
On top of this, three great dangers await the adventurers along the road. The first is a deep forest with branches covered with thorns that never let anyone through - The Forest of the Singing Branches. The second is a mountain that is so steep and so high that no one could ever conquer and go over it - The Mountain of the Still Water. And, last but not least, the third danger consists of hazardous waters that need be crossed with a small rowboat at the risk of being frozen by the ice goddess Danu’s deadly breath - The Sea of the Silent Wind. But Shoshon was strong. He wisely went through this tortuous itinerary, eventually reaching Pella safely. There he became the Cánë ruler of the “small negative” power.
