Background: Shalev ben Barak ben Aris, Betrothed to be Consort to Princess Shadala of the Oasis of the White Palm, Baron of the Court of Count John of Eeyore, brother to Mah-Aharon, master of the southern trade route, keeper of the swords of the angels, and owner of a stargem of Martek, is the younger of the two sons of Barak, and the one who does not want to rule. Skilled with animals and edged weapons, the second son was a willing student but preferred to tend to the animals on the estate than the matters of business, and learned to protect himself at an early age, when he would sneak away from home.
He left home when he was eighteen, released from family duty to Barak when his brother began taking on the business of being family leader and tribal voice, and began exploring the wild. After a year of wandering, he rescued a desert leopard kitten from a crocodile, which he raised as a friend and companion, and later found a High Elf, Cora’sol Tyrtlarn known as The Immortal, Mistress of Memory, who was amused enough by him to take him as a pupil. A somber man, he does not wish to speak without purpose and must often be reined in, his imagination making him impulsive, when he veers from the practical to the fantastic and back. He dislikes cities which are loud, crowded, and unnecessarily cruel.
When he asked his mother (Cerma) if there was anything else he might do for her, she mentioned visiting her family in Kranth, and to offer greetings from the House of Kolta (to refill their cisterns). It will be a future stopping point as the Dark Elf army may be advancing into that region.
Amit and he are currently unholy due to Amit’s use of the magic from the Sword of Nine Lives Stealing given by Martek, and he must create Law in order to regain balance. Having died and been judged, his soul was weighted by Ma’at and found wanting, and there will be a time, which Ma’at informs him will know, when he must create Law or die. Having touched a Holy Defender longsword aligned to Ma’at, he has become a full paladin, and now has powers not associated with his broach.
She advised him that it was not enough to destroy Evil, he must also do Good. She did not specify if this superseded or was in addition to her command to create Law, and so he will attempt to do both.
Attempted to judge the last of the bandits, Simon, encountered by the lake in the bowl, and did so in way that was against Ma’at principles. Met Seth, a god was Ma’at sent to educate Shalev in the ways of Ma’at, either because she could or would not be able to manifest in the bowl. Struggled to find the proper path to make restitution, and is currently further out of balance. Reflecting on the things Seth said, implied, advised, taught, and suggested.
Discovered that he was selected to be a companion to Amit, the avatar of the a god who eats the souls of those out of balance, that his nature directed him to be a paladin, and is reflecting on what that means for his future.
