I searched for my path through sermon, solitude, service, and study of the Gods. They spoke through silence.
Social Rank: 7
Concept: Prodigal Priest
Hair Color: Black
Eye Color: Dark Brown
Description: Sinhoc is bald, the sort of bald that doesn't gleam in the sunlight due to the darkness of the man's skin. Any hair that he might have had on his head has instead gone to his face, giving him short, wiry beard that might otherwise conceal the sharpness and detail of his facial structure beyond his round nose and dark lips. Thin and fierce, his small dark irises have a critical glare to them enhanced by his savage coutenance. Only slightly above average in height, and a little on the wiry side, there is not much else imposing about him.
Personality: 'Angry' would have been an ample and descriptive word for Sinhoc before becoming a member of the clergy. He had a short-fuse initially, which gradually dwindled through seminary training as he became 'closer' to the Pantheon and their worship. Some of his ilk might refer to him as having been brainwashed by the system as a result of his almost 180 personality switch, but Sinhoc knows all to well what he is doing, and firmly believes in the power and will of the Pantheon. He comes off as a thoughtful, polite individual who cares for little but the graces of God, but some have called the new him 'shallow'.
Background: Sinhoc's tribe assimilated into the Compact after enduring years of starvation by the needs of the nearby Superpower. Before this, Sinhoc was a healer among his people, despite his fierce anger management issues. Although not inept at the more accepted trade of raiding and participating in small-time feuds among the Abandoned, he saw less reason in the sacrifice of life and limb, and more in its preservation. As his clan entered a decline due to the increasingly well-equipped transport of goods and overhunting by tribes in a bid to kill each other off, Sinhoc's clan sought refuge in the Compact, many among them swearing allegiance to their ancestral enemies to save their own lives. Sinhoc was among them. As he was soon discovered to own some degree of medical talent, along with an adjustable anger, he was pipelined into a position in priesthood, to nuture pre-developed notions of servitude to higher powers. The act of prayer came to him like smoke to fire, and he mellowed from the experience, coming to love his new place in society.
