Peleps Hitori was born to Peleps Yaorami and Peleps Elleini within the Najalin line of the house, the second and last child of their union. Peleps Yaorami, a vice admiral of the Peleps fleet would be killed in action during Hitori’s first year of life while fighting Lintha pirates during trade negotiations with dignitaries in Coral. Like most dragon blooded, Hitori saw little of his biological mother and spent his life under the care of patrician families within the various house satrapies. Despite his well mannered attitude, Hitori was the source of discomfort for his care takers. His ‘play’ was despite his best intention, generally and economically destructive. Broken vases and shattered heirlooms were common place, as was a torn priceless painting or two, which generally lead to Hitori having more allowances to leave the grounds of his home and ‘go play outside’ with the local children than might be befitting a child of his potential. As such Hitori developed an early understanding of the language of the common people and within a few short months had mastered been accepted by the local community as ‘just another snot rosed brat’. During such a time Hitori witnessed a fellow child being beaten by their parents for loosening a pen of chickens, something Hitori had actually done. Pained in seeing the child cry out, Hitori intervened, grabbing the fathers arm before it fell on his child while declaring the childs innocence loudly, and his own guilt. In that strange moment the Dragons saw fit to bless the child and the stream of babboo water spouts around him went dry as the anime swirling around him gathered the coalesced liquids to his astonishment.
Things after that changed for Hitori. He was no longer allowed outside and instead spent every waking hour in preparatory school, then primary school. He was an average student on the whole, excelling at physical games to ones of strategy or state craft. Commonly during his schooling he would ‘acquire’ answers or even entire assignments off a fellow student named Meifeng. She was talented in the areas he was not and Hitori was determined to meet the expectations placed on him by the Realm. Hitori was amiable to Meifeng, acting the role of her friend at first to get access to her answers without her knowledge, but over time grew to enjoy her company for the few short years they shared together.
When he finished primary school he alerted his mother during one of their rare encounters to celebrate the milestone he had chosen to enter the Cloister of Wisdom. The choice was not a rare one, but his mother had voiced her preference that Hitori might join the navy, especially after the then recent disappearance of the Empress. Hitori did not have the heart to lie, and could only muster a nod. He had already made up his mind to join the Immaculate Order after seeing a demonstration of local monks against the local Prefect and his treatment of local families whom worked long hours in the gem mines. He had grown up listening to his patrician families tell him that the Immaculates were the knitting that held together creation, the selfless that endured on behalf of every and would venture far outside the safety of the Realm to spread the immaculate faith. (Note: this section is not completed).
Schooling: Hitori fell into his stride within the Cloister of Wisdom. While the lessons of history and the gods were things he never truly excelled in, the philosphical and practical applications of the Immaculate Faith were such that he regularly received the moderate praises of his Sifu. His understanding of the physical principles of the Dragons was also natural, and following his time as an acolyte Hitori was quick to become a monk, taking all necessary vows and practicing fervently while he beseeched the dragons every night for their blessing. In less time than any of his peers, Hitori was blessed by Daana’d.
Missionary Work: Hitori spent the last few years moving within throughout Realm territories inside creation. He worked within Thorns a year prior to its grim fate. While in Thorns Hitori fell in love with a fellow Monk, Tepet Vierna, and both broke their vow of celibacy. While she proclaimed to him that she would leave the order to be with him, it pained Hitori to think he had broken her faith and dreams, and so in the dark of night he traveled to other temples near Port Calin and Cherak. It was there he heard of the sacking of Thorns, and in the following year, it was also where he confirmed that no temple had any contact with Tepet Vierna since the attack.
Wyld Hunt: While it was not an immediate move, the years in isolation and reflection burned deeply into Hitori’s soul. Amongst many feelings were those of shame and anger over his actions. He also saw the world around him changing rapidly in fear of the Anathema. The Bull of the North had smashed the Tepet legions and all around creation the horror stories of villages wiped out or enslaved by vile demon possessed creatures were on the rise. Hitori alerted the Order he was to leave his shrine and join the Wyld Hunt. With that he returned back to the realm and attended the Azimuth Spire for his first orders.
