Appearance and Personality
Kai'to is old and grumpy. He is 400 years old, Val born, and does not appreciate it when those around him assume he's some kind of rookie. He loathes the Val'Kyorl'solenurn, and as a result is often bitter about drowussu in general. He is also extremely antagonistic to those he considers weak or unworthy.
Kai'to has long purple hair tied in a messy ponytail and green eyes. He has faint age lines running over his face. He usually carries the top half of his armor on his back, finding it too hot to wear in the sun.
Biography - Arc I
Kai'to Sarghress was once Kai'to Les'wanre Val'Dutan'vir. When the clan fell, he lost his noble rank and joined the Val'Sarghress ranks. He refused to join the Mae'yukir subhouse with most of the clan's other drowussu refugees, and instead is trying to prove himself worthy as a Highland Raider.
Kai'to was first grouped with Vaelia, an emberi, on a routine pest control sweep of an overworld Sarghress supply depot. Vaelia was horrified to find that the pests being slaughtered were actually locust faeries, who were revered by her people as earth spirits. She refused to allow Kai'to to kill the queen. Kai'to grew impatient with Vaelia's supposed stupidity and shut her inside the mana-locked depot to rot.
He volunteered to join Iwan's expedition to explore a distant island in emberi territory, and was accompanied again by Vaelia, who had managed to escape the depot. He complained throughout most of the journey, but did his job capably.
As the squad approached an emberi settlement, Kai'to suggested plainly that the Raiders massacre the village and take any valuables, smugly knowing Vaelia would protest. He kicked her for speaking out, revealing that Vaelia had brought the locust queen along with her to provide mana support. Kai'to drew his sword on her, but Iwan ultimately decided to allow Vaelia to prove herself in the village.
To Kai'to's surprise, Vaelia succeeded in negotiating a favorable trade with the village, winning the respect of Commander Iwan.
Biography - Arc II
Kai'to is recovering from injuries at the colony at Ys, where he meets his mate Riz'riia. He and Riz'riia spend the evening together and miss out on saving the colony from fire and Hermione infiltrators early the next morning. He shows disinterest in the politics in Chel, telling Riz'riia that there are better places to live, such as Ys.
"Idiots. I'm fucking 400 years old. I know what I'm talking about!!" -To his squadmates.
