Exalted Third Edition: Respectful Wolf, Zenith Caste

Respectful Wolf is a member of the Leaf Song Tribe, one of a coalition of tribes inhabiting the coastal forestland southwest of Fortitude. They are a strongly proud people who are hunter-gathers that live in harmony with the forest and the bounty of the sea. They have clashed with both Imperial forces and conquering gangs from Fortitude over territory. The Song Tribes remarkable infantry and guerrilla tactics have kept these expansionist threats from completely overcoming their ancestral home.
Respectful Wolf was raised to hunt, as was tradition for all men of his tribe. However, the stars of his birth revealed to the tribe’s shaman that he was chosen by the gods for the lofty position of Guardian: The dedicated protector of the Chief’s family. He trained hard in the arts of protection, until the day came he was to step up to the position. The totem of the tribe, Drifting Leaf, manifested and foretold that Respectful Wolf must go out into Creation, to cross the cold waters and face a destiny that will prove the ultimate salvation of the Tribe.
Now Respectful Wolf is traveling, with only his Elk Steed for company, in search of a means to cross the cold waters.

Exalted Third Edition: Ten Stones, Night Caste

So my Night Caste Ki Ken met an unfortunate and untimely end at the hands of a powerful deathknight. Character death happens and I took this as an opportunity to build a character more efficiently for EX3 rather than dealing with the stress of playing a conversion character.

So took one of Ki Ken's Followers and made him into a full character. The Storyteller gave me a secret backstory as a solar spy secretly trained by Sidereals who was "keeping an eye" on the circle for quiet some time. It has been a fun ride playing this character and recently he has received a large upgrade in power via storyline.

I am in love with this character and really enjoy playing him. Meet Ten Stones, the careful spy:
