Granite Servant began life as a simple man of An-Teng, if a bit larger than most. He was good at many things, but most of them involved his incredibly high threshold for pain. He was always a gentle sort of fellow, with not even the tiniest hint of malice behind his eyes. He eventually fulfilled the duty of every Tenganese man and found a lovely wife, and settled down to have children with her whilst he worked as a local keeper of peace. Things at home were... strange, though. His beautiful wife acted oddly, arranging things in strange but perfect patterns. Everything had to have an order. He went out and hired a man he had worked with before, an outcast from the realm who had an eye for things meant to be hidden. Eventually they found that his wife had joined the Seven-Stranded Vine, and together they exposed the cell of the cult to the eyes of the city. At that time his newfound friend exalted into a Solar.. though they did not know it yet. He offered to help his friend any way he could, to determine what had happened to him (Thinking perhaps he was doomed to become an Anathema for halting the cult's progress.) Eventually he found the truth himself, and was equally exalted by the Unconquered Sun for his dutiful nature and eye for simple procedures. He took a new name for his new purpose, and swore to help his friend to rid An-Teng of this wicked influence.


Clarity of Simple Wisdom is an An-Teng native, and it shows. He has deep brownish skin, and soft black hair. He has quite a bit of portliness to him but it doesn't seem to slow him down much. He moves like a landslide, slowly - but deliberately and with quite a bit of force behind him. He is has a gentle nature but will absolutely not brook any sort of demon without a very good reason. After all, they took his poor, naive wife from him.
