Origin

Born in Anauroch approximately 100 years before now, the boy originally named Dalesh was an unexpected and, by his father, unwanted surprise. The sands had given his father much, and now it gave him an abomination in his eyes. Dalesh was curious as to why he was the way he was, and wanted to explore beyond the sands of the Sword to learn more about himself. When he was 15, he was dragged away from the caravan one night by the Sultan's men, his father, and his uncles. There, he was kicked, beaten, punched, and whipped until the sands were wet with his blood. He begged and pleaded for them to stop, and then the Sultan stepped behind him and drew his scimitar blade across his throat.

The images that he recalls from his time amongst the dead are confusing and bleak. He thinks that he sent himself to some nether realm, neither good nor evil, but still punishing.

And then, he arose. That experience was full of sounds (screaming and angry yelling), visuals (blood, lights, and spirits), and tastes (blood on his tongue, sweet, sour). He awoke in the desert, all alone, where he'd died. He used his knowledge of desert survival to make it to a nearby caravan, where a guard woman dressed in simple clothes, leaning on a staff with a bow strapped around her body, smiled at him. Her sky-blue skin and perpetually wind-tossed white hair making her stand out. She introduced herself to him as Zephyr, and gave him a name for himself: genasi.

From there, he spent the next 5 years studying with her, learning more about who the genasi were and how they came to be, but also learned about her way of moving through the world, how she protected herself and those around her. He became her apprentice in the way of the Kensei, learning how to manipulate his inner core of strength, his ki.

He took his leave of her and began working as a guard himself, using his abilities and skills to take out danger before it overwhelmed his employers. He learned more, meditating on his anger and using that energy to drive him to do more. He wasn't yet sure what "more" looked like, but he knew that he wasn't going to take this second chance at life for granted. He was going to leave a legacy behind this time.
