Kwai Chang Caine is a simple man. His experiences within his teacher’s monastery have led him to seek out internal redemption.
He knows little about his parents, only that which Father John shared with him, and feels a large hole missing from his life. His Elven father, Aventice, married his Human mother, Hiyetsu. The marriage between the couple angered Caine’s grandparents whom he has never met. He hopes, should he ever meet them, to reconcile and bring peace within himself.
Caine’s parents themselves were slaughtered, according to Father John, soon after Caine’s birth. Father John then took it upon himself to father Caine and teach him to become a holy man.
Being born a Half-Elf, Caine never fit in with one group or the other. Often rejected and mocked for his race by outsiders, Caine quietly began to build his inner anger. Frequently, he would strike at trees inside the monastery garden. As Caine grew older, he became stronger – often destroying the trees while strengthening himself. Slowly as he matured, he began to understand the danger behind anger and chaos, and chose to align himself Lawfully Neutral.
With his age and wisdom, he tried new approaches to befriend his fellow Priests and Monks, often turned down with scorn. One exceptional Priest, Camael Sunwrought, befriended Caine and bonded with him. The two shared their experiences with each other, and when Camael lost his beloved Forcae, Caine tried to comfort him to little avail.
In protest to Camael, Caine decided with his inner strength and with the rage of his young hatred, he chose the path of Monk instead of a Priest. Practicing meditation quietly by the fountains, he grew mentally, spiritually and physically.
Caine, now 27, has been tasked with aiding a weary traveler on a new quest – one that will take him outside of the walls of his beloved home. Never before has the experienced Caine undergone such a task, but new experiences await him no doubt.
