If Lho'a ever had a Clan, they were either lost to the Calamity or the Garlean's that moved through the Shroud. As far back as his own memories reach, he finds himself a lone child crying out for comfort and aid. He find's his calls answered by a voice from within, one that offers to teach him, shield him, and make him grow strong. A voice, that in return for these gifts asks only to see the world through his eyes, and become a constant spectator in the play it would help to write. This was how the boy became possessed, and why he carries within him a voidsent that yearns to experience the many facets of life. It was through his guidance, that the Keeper survived a struggling youth, and it was his power that provided succor for a starving child in the depths of the Shroud.
He is a great many things...a jester, an irritant, a healer, an adviser,a scholar, a mage, a spy,a friend, a protector But the one thing he refuses to ever be....is Alone.
An ashen skinned keeper with a mop of green and white hair atop his head. Despite the messy appearance of it, he actually spends much time each morning trying to ensure one bang hides his left eye, for the sake of appearing more dramatic than he actually is. He is a small framed, small built Keeper male, with little by way of physical strength and presence. Often times he is more prone to perching on a railing, or squatting next to others during conversation, keeping him with more of a minions stature than a man's. This is more a reflection of his own view of self worth than anything else, even if he doesn't realize it.
Lho'a is almost always found in some form of robes. He prefers baggy attires that hide his form, and allow him to appear slightly larger than he actually is. The more straps, pouches and trinkets the better. He holds a strong value for nicer outfits, having never had access to such things in the past. In that regard he takes very good care of the robes he does acquire, and would likely risk his life to keep the garments safe.
Lho'a is almost always seen with some form of glasses, as the pink eyes keeper has terrible vision without them. This being his most visible weakness, he often is noted adjusting or toying with them out of self conscious worry.
Lho'a can have a very overbearing personality publicly. He is usually the loudest in a group, and prone to causing problems by riling up whomever he can get a reaction out of. He is likely a bit more wordy than most of his kind, and shows a great deal of intelligence and inflection when given the chance, but these instances are easily drowned out in him calling Lalafel's short, or Highlanders dumb. For those who can look past his big mouth, it will be more obvious that his desire for attention has gone far past caring WHAT sort of attention he gets. He is just as pleased with being disliked, as liked..and often times will chase and pick at someone who threatens him, more than he would one who genuinely shows wants for him to be around.
Beyond the outward face, Lho'a is a fairly smart Keeper, who values knowledge above all else. Having little experience in affection and interaction, Lho'a is far more likely to sever bonds and betray others for the sake of a promise of power or a new spell. If a social interaction does shift too much on him, Lho'a will tend to panic and retreat entirely. He has trouble handling too much stress, and will do his best to teleport away if a confrontation occurs that s not to his liking. His own fear of isolation manifests a habit of keeping himself exiled for the sake of staying locked into what he is used to. This usually leads to the Keeper drifting between being quite manic and silly, and then dipping down deeply into his own thoughts of craving to be feared more than liked.
As he has interacted more outside of his comfort zones, Lho'a has begun to develop a want to be part of society more. Having met a Matron in Miah Polaali, he has begun to learn the ways in which his people live their lives, and is utterly fascinated with their culture. He has felt the faintest hints of instinct kicking in, and his studious mind demands he learn and experience more. In Restless Wind he has had a firm hand to keep him from getting into too much trouble. Between the two, and some outside forces, Lho'a is finding himself addicted to social interactions and studying the ways in which others behave. Were as once he was content to isolate himself in the Shroud, he now panics at even the thought of not being near others.
Some later events have expanded his world view, and in doing so caused him to realize just how small he is compared to the grander scope of things. In learnng this, he has gained a greater disdain for would-be-heroes, and has mostly given up his quest for immortality and fame. Lho has learned that life is only precious because it is brief...and to that end he wishes to experience as much as he can while he is able.
These are the folks that Lho'a has, at present the most vested interest in. Not to say the Keeper doesn't cast a wide net, but these souls are of particular interest for one reason or another.
