Buwan

For, after all, you do grow up, you do outgrow your ideals, which turn to dust and ashes, which are shattered into fragments; and if you have no other life, you just have to build one up out of these fragments. – Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Happiness does not exist, nor should it, and if there is any meaning or purpose in life, they are not in our peddling little happiness, but in something reasonable and grand. Do good! – Anton Chekhov

Being Lawful Neutral does not mean you seek goodness in the world to bring happiness nor does it mean you seek vengeance fueled by the whims of emotions. You are fair, informed, and render judgment from the evidence presented. Buwon has seen what Evil has given him and has seen the potential that Good has to offer. He believes that everything has its place in the grand scheme of destiny like a celestial body tracked into a gravitational path. This has been further reinforced with his connection to Kuneho and the way they view the souls of the living. He seeks to right imbalances as he figures out his own moral compass, struggling with the person he was raised to be and the person he is called to become.

Values:

Inquiry: an act of asking for information
The cliche that “knowledge is power” holds true for Buwon, but he is not complacent enough to let knowledge simply fall into his lap. Buwon will actively seek out knowledge and information from a variety of sources: humanoids, literature, mythology, visions, astrology, data. If it has been written, interpreted, or spoken by a person or being, Buwon will be curious. By virtue of him being essentially raised in a library, Buwon places facts and knowledge on a pedestal, prizes to possess. This is especially true if he believes pertinent information will lead to a verdict, and this singular tunnel-vision causes him at times to be seen as blunt or straightforward.

Compathy: shared feeling (as of joy or sorrow)
There is a joy in sharing that Buwon was not always privy to in his youth. As an adult, he cherishes this, further compounded by the inexplicable link he shares with Kuneho. He has become used to slipping into their thoughts and vice versa, feeling what the other senses: pain, pleasure, perspective. He may at times seem too frank, but there is an earnestness in his empathy. To feel the light of the moon is to cut through the fog of this world; to share in another’s joy or to express one’s own sorrow is to find clarity in camaraderie and to create a tempered bond forged by connection.

Satori: (Zen Buddhism) A sudden inexpressible feeling of inner understanding or enlightenment
When all seemed lost, Buwon found what he believes was his place in the world. Escaping his earlier life, he stepped into the void and was transformed, taking upon the self-denoted mantel Herald of the Moon. Buwon wishes to extend this understanding to all facets of his life, especially now that his world view has been inverted. By upholding what he believes is right from wrong, he seeks to understand his relationship to those around himself in order to once more find that feeling of inner enlightenment. From knowledge comes understanding. From understanding comes compassion. From compassion comes enlightenment. 

Bonds:

Pippa: Feels Like Home

  • Pippa reminds Buwan of his childhood and that is something that he hasn’t realized he’s missed. He’s looking forward to spending time with the the other adult in the room in order to cultivate this feeling further

Abraxas: Lunar Brother

  • Abraxas seems to be a kindred spirit, and other child of the moon. However, they each manifest this connection in different ways — Abraxas through transforming his body, Buwan by separating a piece of himself. He wants to learn more about these differences in order to learn how to replicate it in his own connection

Andromeda: Little One

  • Andromeda invokes pity and a need to be shielded from the ways of the world, but Buwan is also highly suspicious if not afraid of what lies further beyond the seeming mask of innocence. Furthermore, Kuneho is not one to fear death yet fears Andromeda. Why?

 

Personal Bond:

Himself: Broken & Amnesiac

  • Buwan prides himself on knowing things, yet he can’t remember four whole days. He finds himself weakened physically (-1 Str modifier), and Kuneho has fallen in battle so quickly and for the first time in a while. Buwan needs to fix himself and discover what happened to him during that missing span of time.
