  • Motivation: To find out what really happened to the Solars.
  • Positive intimacies: His pipe. An-Teng. 'Watson'
  • Negative intimacies:
  • Anima: His banner is a pipe! Sort of smoky-dark light for his nonbanner'd aura.
  • Experience: 4/127


Sesus Kelim was not your ordinary Sesus by any recognition. He may have been born with flaming-red hair and a light complexion as is common in the family, but he held none of its supposed drawbacks. As a child he found interest in games of hide and seek, and even scavenger hunts. Eventually, as he began to get on in years it was quickly discovered he wasn't really 'right' for regular society. He had much too high a flair for discovering when people were trying to hide something, and no qualms of exclaiming this aloud. Eventually this practice got him booted from the Realm proper, and his family sent him off to fend for himself. He went west, and found An-Teng to be a glorious place where there was a grand opportunity to ply his skills. At length, he routed out and exposed a large cell of the Seven-Stranded Vine with the help of a new friend of his. At the final culminating arrest of this fortuitous affair, a solar shard found itself inexorably attracted to his soul. Kelim was dumbfounded by the experience, and with the help of his new friend they at length discovered what exactly had happened to him. Now that he has been given the power of the Unconquered Sun, Kelim discards his worthless Dragonblooded name to take one which better suits his new life. An-Teng will be scoured from top to bottom of all its wrongs by the time he is done with it! It just so happened that the shard he inherited knew something of fighting, and he has also gone to great lengths to find himself a mentor in this strange new style.


Omen of Hidden Wrongs appears to have integrated well into the area of An-Teng. He wears their clothes quite well, other than a simple hat which often seems slightly out of place with the rest of the outfit. He shaves his head and face clean so as not to display the bright-red hair of his heritage. He wishes only to be judged on his personal merits. He is Five-foot-ten, and not particularly heavily built. He is oft seen with an unlit.. or lit pipe in his mouth.
