Kálti hiHlutu'ún, Temple guard of Kárakan

Character History and Notes:
Kálti has always wanted to be a warrior. Nothing interested her as child more than the tales of the ancient warriors of legend. The mythology of Vimúhla, Lord of Flame and Destruction, was also filled with great battles and warriors, and Kálti's devotion burned hot as well. As a teen, her teachers recognized the fire in her eyes and her unique memory talent as important assets, and began training her for a special duty to the temple.

She is now acting as a low-level agent in the Temple of Kárakan. Though Kárakan is one of the Stability Gods and Vimúhla one of the Change Gods, they are both military-oriented deities and have a lot in common, both theologically and politically. Many situations have seen these two temples on the same side of an issue, as is the case with the war with Yán Kór. These alliances aside, though, they still keep a close eye on each other, and that's where Kálti fits in.

She has held her present position as temple guard for a year. She reports to another agent within the Kárakan temple, and is also sent on various minor errands occasionally. She was recently sent by the temple of Kárakan as a supplemental warrior on an expedition into the Underworld for which the Temple of Thúmis needed some extra muscle.
