River of Stars
Crow-headed monk seeking respite from sorrow
Crow-headed monk occupying a low regard in the small but notable town of Faneswold. Drinks and begs for shelter and coin, more or less barred from the Cinct where old and unusual writings are guarded and kept safe, he (she?) is still looking to find further answer to the Tale of the Girl Lost to Birdsong. In that tale, a girl finds wisdom and pure contentment, but the price is she leaves the world in doing so, and the wisdom cannot be shared. Perchance has assuredly lost something and is a rattling shell around that loss now.
