Cardiff

    Seasoned Male Kehana

    Background

    Cardiff (as he is known) was quite young when he discovered a human shipwreck survivor. He had heard of the other peoples of Caribdus but had never seen them; especially the exotic humans that had begun appearing in the world. He was instantly fascinated by the man, especially his cloths and mannerisms and unlike many of his kind did not immediately set upon the scared individual and kill him. In fact he befriended the terrified survivor - as much as a kehana understands the concept - and brought him food (well raw fish). He kept his existence secret from the others for many weeks and learned a great deal about the world beyond his home. However certain changes in his demeanour alerted his xenophobic people and both he and the human were eventually discovered. The pack instantly set upon the pair. He was wounded, but escaped, but the human was savagely ripped to shreds. He did not try to save the man; the concept of endangering his own life for a stranger still being an alien concept to him.

    Now an outsider and facing further retribution if he stayed, he left The Flumes in search of that certain special something (civilisation).

    Description

    A young Kehana with unreadable coal black eyes and sharp teeth. His exudes an odd combination of naivety and savagery that many people can find quite disturbing. He dresses (overdresses really) in a garish mismatch of cloths and styles, but fails to look after them giving him a rather dishevelled appearance.

    Cardiff is enamoured with the trappings of civilisation – and compared with his homeland pretty much all of Caribdus appears pretty civilised to his eyes. He tries very hard to ‘get it’ but is frequently betrayed by his savage upbringing.
