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. She conjures forth pleasant memories but at times has also summoned forth creeping sensations of shame and suspicion long thought shed. However, she and I have come to an impasse recently, and for that I am glad. It is hard to look at your reflection and not see the person you once were, but even harder when another throws it in your face. I am glad that Pippa made me realize that perhaps running from the past only leads to darker times. I look forward to showing her who Jaromir was and will be.

Abraxas: Heavy Lies the Crown

  • Abraxas may be a kindred spirit, but that does not mean we act the same or come to the same conclusions. We seem to be truly of different worlds though under the same moon. I have watched him wield power and authority but always with a gleam of hesitation in his eyes. He seems unsure of the role that is repeatedly thrust upon him, one that he readily takes upon himself whether he is aware of this or not. He will need guidance when it comes to less savory matters and will need my knowledge and experience more so than ever.

Andromeda: In Spirit & In Soul

  • After spiriting myself into the inner depth’s of Andromeda’s soul, I feel I am truly connected to her now and forever. My spirit is her shadow, and hers mine. But what consequences will that have on us both? I fear that what she suffers from may be larger than what we as a group can surmise or handle realistically. I will need to find out more information so I can better prepare myself, our group, and especially Little One as we move in tandem with the great beast that is a shade on her consciousness.

Personal Bond:

Himself: Broken & Amnesiac

  • I pride myself on knowing things, yet I can’t remember four whole days. I find myself weakened physically (-1 Str modifier), and Kuneho has repeatedly fallen in battle. I need to fix myself and discover what happened to me during that missing span of time in Baba Yaga’s hut. I’ve focused so much on others. I need to reorient my gaze inwards and discover the truth.

Other Bonds:

Argentea: Making Amends 

  • As of late, I’ve been lashing out at Argentea. I should buy her some fish next time we are in a settlement. Or maybe I should ask Pippa what her favorite food is and feed that to Argentea?

Andromeda’s Grandmother: Font of Knowledge

  • I have not taken advantage of the opportunity that travels with us. I must interview Andromeda’s Grandmother and record them in a journal to be published when I have time.
