Character Spotlight: Artheon Kel-Ashra

In this lifetime, Artheon has spent years studying the intelligent races of the world to try and understand their cultures and soceities in the hope of bringing reason to the cycle of peace and wars that have coursed through centuries.

He has spent most of his life travelling through cities and towns, visting temples, listening to stories and legends (some of which nudge an ever distant memory), witnessed great kings and seen the decline of failed dynasties. He has visited the halls of the dwarves, the forests of the elves, the clans of orcs and hobgoblins. Whilst not every location has been friendly towards his aims, they have each given him an insight to build upon the larger picture for the purpose of life.

Always an outsider though where ever he may wander due to his appearance clearly marking his Deva background, Artheon is no stranger to violence, frequently being set upon by those who are afraid of what he is to those who are all to those familiar with what his racial history is. However, his travels and studys have allowed his to bring the arcane forces to play upon the weaknesses of the minds he has studied.

Whilst Artheon regrets such instances, he cannot allow the will of those who do not understand his purpose to attempt to block him and will do what he must to prevent it.

Artheon is well aware of how daunting his appearance gives to the most of the mortals who have never seen a being such as himself. To better allow himself to remain undisturbed, he has given to covering most of his skin during his travels, only disrobing when in private. He covers his head with a headscarf that keep only his eyes visible.

He keeps quiet most of the time as he travels, contemplating different ideas within his mind but is open to conversation with others. He has the makings of a sense of humour, no doubt rubbing off on to him with his mixture of life, but is still lacking. He is quick of thinking and uses his knowledge of cultures to draw him out of situations or, better yet, not get in to them in the first place. He will however, not lie if required and sticks rigidly to the morale code of his race, not daring to let his quest for knowledge besmirch his soul. This in mind, he is ruthless against agents of evil or those who obstruct his path.

Artheon has found himself near Brindol during his travels and has heard tales of a group of heroes sacrificing their well being for the good of the people to fend of a growing evil. This fresh tales are ones he has not heard before and has actively seeked out the party and observed their actions from afar. However, rising curiosity has got the better of him and he wishes to know more about these seemingly paragons of good, find out what drives them in their quest and what keeps their trust between each other. Perhaps in doing so, Artheon will get closer to the answers he so desperately seeks.
