† Samuru’s dark secret is that he is a Solar. If word of this got back to his family he would loose a point of Contacts and a point of Resources
†† Samuru’s paternal grandfather was mutated in the Wyld. All of his son’s and his grandson have inherited the Deficiency this created: bright blue hair color.
‡ Samuru has taken two minor oaths. The first is to maintain an altar to Rudhira the Storm Rider on any oach bound ship he travels on, in exchange this provides him with his Priest merit. The second is to pray to the sea gods daily (even if he is on land), in exchange he gains his Luck merit.
