 +"Zap! Calm down -- before I kill you!"
 +
 +**Date of Birth:​** ​ Cal 17th, 1239 Avard.
 +
 +**Current Status:​** ​ Summer, 1331 Avard. ​ Ethos and his friend [[gaeleth:​people:​Zachary Kantor]] (Zap) survived the [[gaeleth:​history:​War of the Four Winds]], and returned to help rebuild [[gaeleth:​places:​Takanal]] into a proud city. Ethos' healing skills were a wonder to the Dagonneth dwarves, and also helped him keep many of Takanal'​s people alive during the war. A mass exodus of anti-Inquisition elves from Ethos' homeland after the War of the Four Winds saw the creation of a duchy of sylvan elves within Rakore. Ethos left good friends behind in Takanal to rejoin his brethren, and has helped the transition between those Banoc elves and Rakore. ​
 +====== Appearance ======
 +
 +Ethos is a taller elf, with ivory skin and snowy-white hair to his shoulders. ​ His long bangs conceal his emerald-green eyes, until he brushes aside his hair, but it always manages to fall back into his eyes.  He wears white silk breeches and a flowing short-robe of white silk, contrasted by a vestment of forest-green. ​ His boots, wide belt, and supple forearm bracers are all of white leather, and his bracers have prayers tooled and dyed into them in intricate script. ​ Silver buckles and bits accentuate his clothing, and the overall appearance is of lawfulness and holiness: ​ a carefully crafted illusion. ​

 +
 +Ethos carries twin light maces with silvered hafts and heads at his belt.  Over his back, he has a longbow of a bleached ash wood, as well as a quiver of white leather with twenty arrows in it.  About his neck is his holy symbol, a pendant in silver and lapis lazuli of green. ​ He tends to travel lightly, with a healer'​s kit in white leather over one shoulder, and a wide white belt about his waste with fair-sized pockets for his small prayer book, purse, and sundry other items.
 +
 +====== Background ======
 +
 +Ethosivalisan Eskesieresal was in training to be a fighter and a warrior of the Hesthelesthar tribe of sylvan elves in the Banoc Forests. ​ When the [[gaeleth:​history:​War of the Undead]] nearly destroyed the tribe and all of Ethos' kin, he turned to the  God of Compassion and Healing, [[gaeleth:​divinities:​Whalin]]. ​ Whalin'​s teachings were both a salve for the wounded and the living, and a form of destruction and vengeance against the undead. ​ Ethos took to Whalin'​s teachings with fierce determination,​ and reputedly received his first lesson in prayers from an archon of Whalin'​s named Kreeldath. ​ Ethos went on to heal the living, and destroy the unliving, with his newfound faith and his abilities and training as a warrior.
 +
 +After the War of the Undead was finally resolved, he took a sabbatical to rest and search for his purpose in life.  After several years, he discovered that Whalin'​s intent was to use him as a missionary. ​ Consulting with the loosely organized church of Whalin in developing Banoc'​bae,​ the High Priestess of Whalin for the new elven nation named him "​Cirrathwhaelin"​ -- Whalin'​s Hands -- a term for traveling clerics and missionaries of the Healing God.
 +
 +Ethos' travels took him to the Dwarven nation of [[gaeleth:​places:​Rakore]],​ where he became involved in the city life of Kashin for a time.  He worked with the city's small monastery to Whalin, and was present on the Night of Assassins.
 +
 +====== Character ======
 +
 +Ethosivalisan projects lawful obedience to the rules, while deep down, he feels rules often need to be broken to achieve Whalin'​s ends.  The unusual elf never hesitates to rush into battle, and actually prefers excitement and combat to the tediums of the clergy -- perhaps because of his relatively young age.  Although an adrenaline junky, Ethos is also a serious, intelligent,​ and fairly wise elf with a fair ability to work with people of all backgrounds. ​ His faith in Whalin is unshakeable,​ due to the War of the Undead, but a seed of vengeance lies deep within his soul, perhaps firing his need for combat. ​ When he meditates to calm himself, and study Whalin'​s teachings, he meditates. ​ His hands continue to move, even while meditating, working on new clothes or repairing old clothes. ​
 +
 +Ethos speaks Common, Elven, and Celestial.
