Kesh’s sister Armina has arrived in town and has already got both herself and her brother in trouble by stealing a rare artifact and hiding it in Kesh’s room at the local inn. It, of course, was just found because the town Enforcers followed her poorly-concealed trail there. Kesh was not in at the time, but walking in on the event is clearly disconcerting.


“Priest”/Devotee seeking out leads and secrets of the Unknown Ones, bound to inscribe knowledge in the book he carries chained to his wrist daily (without continual feeding of data, it will instead feed on his memories and personality, leaving nothing but a husk). Socially recognized as  a Dictionarian and accorded at least a modicum of respect in most communities and typically considered “not there” for private events; his status as Archivist provides an almost mystic (and probably psy-enhanced) “I’m not here” field strengthened by social taboos about recognizing his sort if they seem to be notionally trying not to be seen. Sometimes works a little too well. Also, clearly the socially adept member of the group.
