Bio:

Former servant of Keko the Wise, captured by the Cult of Set, killed in battle with the false Ptarmes, raised by the Jade Cup (life-changing Near Death Experience).

Callista is a bit pale for an Archontean, but a bit dark for a Thorcin or a Wiskin. She tans evenly rather than freckling. With a little work she can pass in any of these societies, but none of them would consider her particularly attractive or eloquent (thus the low Charisma score).

She is currently working to establish a monastery in The Green Lady’s new town, Falaise, where she will foster the philosophy of the Jade Cup, as well as train those who wish to learn the extinct martial arts techniques that she calls the Jade Dance.

As the first monk of this age, there’s no one alive to train her. She learns through dreams and meditations, consulting the memories (either past or future, she has no idea) of those raised by the Jade Cup.
