Hell Hound / Avatar of numerous storm gods

Azehur(?)

Nearly immortal mercenary through the power of Vashanka before that god's demise. Commander of the Stepsons; cursed with insomnia and a fatal inability to give or receive love.

The newest Hell Hound and an enigmatic character dedicated to the Rankan god of war, Vashanka. He has been pledged to the god and can sometimes speak to Vashanka, usually to quarrel.

He has been alive for at least three centuries, is a master of all weapons and was granted two gifts by the god - the ability to regenerate and the ability to mask his features so he cannot be recognized.

He hates Jubal the slaver and hunts Jubal's hawkmasks wherever he may find them. Even outside of Sanctuary, he despises all magicians.

Because Tempus was sent to Sanctuary on a special commission by powerful interests in the capital, Zalbar has very little control over him. Tempus is 6 1/2 feet tall and brutal-looking when he is not masking his features. Normally he has long blonde hair and sometimes a beard. Among other things he has been a general, a philosopher, and a magic-user (Blue Star Adept).

His supposed-sister Cime starts to call him Cle..., and it appears they may have come from Azehur.
