Character Concept

An Isur who is missing the pride of his race, their holy arm, and who never took much interest in making things anyway. He is much more interested in opening things up, and finding out what makes them tick. He is an investigator of people, somebody who likes to provoke people, just to see how they'll react. He can take a hell of a punch too, since he's not going to be throwing any anytime soon. He's not recognized as part of Izurdin's blessed people, and as an exile he is nameless in the eyes of his kindred. So he's given himself a name. A name worthy of his current situation. A son of evil. A father to what?

Rhyson's chief personality traits are Truth-seeking, Loyal, Deceptive, and Stubborn, Well-spoken, Mild Sociopath.

Rhyson was the garrulous leader of a street gang in his younger years, and while he never took up fighting in any real pretext, he did find himself to be increasingly better at procuring secrets and information making his group of youthful criminals stand out like a giant among children in the Citadel's Underworld. It was eventually in part because of his actions as a gang leader that Rhyson was exiled from Sultros.

Character History

As a child, Rhyson became sick and his arm had to be lopped off. His parents were prepared to raise him despite his infirmity. When Rhyson grew to adulthood however, his bitterness and caustic delight in pulling people apart culminated in a series of unfortunate events which will be put to pen later. The result of his expulsion from Sultros, was his apparition in Ravok, and the beginnings of his new life as an investigator, inquisitor, and Person Who Knows Things.

Upon being exiled, Rhyson drifted. He spent a season in Kalinor, went over to Wind Reach for a spell. And left Kalea entirely around 460 AV. The next ten years he spent wandering from Eyktol to Taldera, seeing the coldest and hottest climes in Mizahar. Wherever Rhyson went, he left a trail of broken secrets and wizened criminals. His luck broke in 471 AV when he was captured and enslaved by a wandering Symenestra who further enabled Rhyson to practice his language. Unusually, Rhyson and the Symenestra developed a relationship beyond master and slave, and after following his master for close to 20 years, Rhyson was released from captivity and formally freed in 490 AV. The last 27 years of Rhyson's turbulent life have been the most obscure to any who might have been curious about his biography. Never having kept a name for longer than a couple years, Rhyson began going by Rhyson Halfhame in the last 7 years and his connections to Ravok became increasingly clear. He was freed in Sylira and had offered his services to his former master who kindly rejected. It is generally known that Rhyson has been a obedient if reclusive citizen of Ravok since 510 AV. It's only recently, in 517 AV, that the man has come out of his shell once more.

Why Rhyson? Halfhame's Connection to Rhysol

In 510, Rhyson was given a mandate by Akajia to learn the secrets of Ravok's priesthood. When he arrived in the city, he adopted a false name other than Rhyson whereby he acquired quarters in a rough part of the city. After spending several days researching the the Temple of the Black Sun's rhythms and patterns, he felt confident enough to try and make a pass at the place and investigate its hidden corners.

It didn't go well.

After a week where Rhyson was missing, though obviously the Isur wasn't being searched for, he resurfaced in that rough and tumble part of Ravok, walking with a pronounced limp, bruises, and a need for a handkerchief when he coughed up blood. Weeks went past, and the Isur's limp and bruises healed, and he began to go by Rhyson. While he and the Black Sun are aware of where he was and what transpired during that ill-fated week seven years ago, nobody else would know, or care to find out, why this one-armed Isur now has a pronounced and noticeable respect for the God of Evil, perhaps even more so than his reverence for his patron god Izurdin.

While everything looks good in terms of skills and general information, I am not sold on the connection part. I don't mind him being snatched, re-educated and then released but the reason behind it makes me cringe. Start small and work big. Remove the goddess of shadows from the equation, please.

There are many reasons why one would investigate the Black Sun but divine mandate is one I'm not willing to accept from this character. It reads too much like a 'feeding the wolves' scenario. My one exception would be that Rhysol impersonated Akajia to trick your PC into getting caught. If you need more ideas, send me a PM.
