Cathak Kyushin Garel

Concept: Eager Realm Dynast
Caste: Zenith
Supernal Ability: Resistance
Intention: Kyushin is a young Dynast who has yet to Exalt. They're getting a little old for it and many question behind their back whether he ever will Exalt. However, they somehow managed to push through the House of Bells through determination and hard work so their House decided to make use of them. The Cathak leadership pulled some strings to get Kyushin a commission in Greyfalls, where they volunteered to accompany Nellens Herren's scale in the field. Kyushin secretly hopes to force Exaltation through dramatic circumstances and regularly pushes themself into dangerous situations. They're likely to be bitterly disappointed in how things actually play out, so that push into danger will likely convert into a deathwish. Kyushin is modeled as the unstoppable anime hero with absurd Integrity and Resistance. They are very skilled with their spear, fighting with Melee. They're not consciously a social creature, but their ability to lead from the front and inspire others through action is reflected in a high Performance score. They are diligent in the matters of War, Lore, and Bureaucracy. They grew up near the sea, so have a talent for Sail. This may be helpful when navigating the many rivers in the Scavenger Lands. Athletics and Awareness are picked to round out Favored abilities because of their general utility.
