Dao Jodh and his people lived in peace and contemplation on a world they called simply "Home", and the rest of the galaxy referred to as Jiran VII. Many generations ago, Dao's ancestors turned their backs on the rest of the galaxy and focused their gaze inward, toward inner peace and contemplation.
Dao found the regimented and contemplative life expected of him boring. His mentors told him that he was gifted, that he had more potential for enlightenment than any before him. They encouraged him to focus on his studies and unlock the mysteries within him. Nothing could be more tedious, but knowing no other life, Dao did his best.
One day, Dao's monastery was visited by strange people - offworlders! Suddenly, a whole galaxy of possibility, of diversity and difference and experience, seemed available to Dao. He plagued one of the visitors, Rahm Kota, with questions, and he indulged his curiosity with as many answers as he could manage. He spoke of the great cities of the Core Worlds, of the fallen Jedi Order, of the crystal canyons of Chandrila and the oceans of Dac, a thousand things Dao had never dreamed of seeing.
Dao became convinced that the outsiders' arrival was no accident - that they were calling him to his destiny. He asked the elders of his monastery for permission to leave. They denied him, and told him that his destiny was to be the savior of his people. They insisted that he should put such notions out of his head, for the ordeals ahead of him would be great. Dao snuck out that night and, in the morning, followed the offworlders to their ship, stowing away aboard it.
Since then, Dao and Kaveri have traveled the galaxy together. Dao is always eager to find new worlds and see the stunning diversity the galaxy has to offer, while remaining true to the peaceful wisdom of his upbringing.
If he sometimes feels guilty for abandoning his people, he doesn't mention it. But when a message came from Kota requesting him to come to Spintir, he was very swift to respond. Perhaps soon he will be ready to return to Home. But not yet.
Mystery - Destiny and Fate: The character wants to know if destiny truly exists. Do all beings have a fate set down for them at the moment of their creation? Can one thwart their fate, or is it an exercise in futility? And if one fulfills their destiny, what then? Above all, the character wants to know what their own destiny is, and must decide whether to fulfill it or avoid it.
Emotional Strength - Discipline: Dao Jodh is never rash or thoughtless in his actions. When making important decisions, he strives to examine each option carefully and objectively in order to make the right choice, not only for himself, but for the galaxy. At his best, Dao Jodh is full of wisdom and consideration.
Emotional Weakness - Obstinance: Careful introspection usually leads
Dao Jodh to the right answer, but this means he has built up a habit of being correct. He tries to consider all evidence carefully, but if the evidence suggests he has made a mistake, then he is as likely to see a flaw in the evidence as to adjust his course. At his worst, Dao Jodh is stubborn and willful.
