Rise of the Rune Lords
A 15 year old monk, who is always hungry.
Ton stands 5’10” tall and weighs around 163 lbs. He is bald, but his eyebrows are blond. His eyes are brown. He is lean and wiry, his build is deceptive compared to his weight. He typically wears an average linen shirt, hemmed neatly at cuffs and collar, over simple linen breaches. His leather shoes have seen a lot of wear, but are still serviceable. He carries two sticks with him, both made of heavy, hardened and exotic wood (bamboo), and crafted with a smooth finish. His backpack is well made, but equally well worn. His bedroll is surprisingly thin, and his possessions few.

Ton found work with the craftsmen and laborers building the new cathedral. Locals were grateful for another strong back, and a willing hand. His good nature and friendly demeanor made him a natural choice to become a team foreman, and so he met Kivu, and worked with her regularly enough to form a friendship. Ton described himself as a traveler, although he seemed willing to stay at least until the work was done; he told tales of far away lands and spoke languages that belied his fair skin and light brown eyes. He quickly made friends with Ephrey as they share a favored drinking hole, Risa’s Place on Undercliff Way.
Ton’s early yearsTon barely remembers living in Karapesh, in the temple of Sentient Reflection. He was orphaned there by his father, who, claimed his mother died at childbirth. His father was of Ulfen descent and named the boy Jens. The name was badly mangled by the native-Tien speakers at the temple, and so the boy took on the moniker Ton.
When he was 9 he was assigned to serve a master at the temple, who left that year to travel the roads. Pujian (meaning one of enlightenment in Tien) took to traveling along the coast of the Inland sea with the boy in tow. The boy’s talent for languages grew almost as quickly as he did.
When he was 12, Pujian began to head north.
When he was 14, Pujian founded a small temple to enlightenment and law in Magnimar and released the boy from his vows. Ton, now considered an adult, was free to wander the roads for himself.
