Appearance
Ekwÿöf looks to be a man half his age. He carries himself with all the youthful vigour of a man in his prime. His thick hair is a dark chestnut, kept back with a leather headband. His eyes are a light grey-blue, with no signs of wrinkles or crow's feet. He dresses in a rough tanned hide tunic, and leggings.

Personality

Ekwÿöf lives apart from his fellow Layor, having chosen a life dedicated to mastering his psychic talents. He is most comfortable without the bustle and noise of a village, but does not resent his infrequent visitors. He is usually described as cold and unfriendly, due to his detached demeanour. His mind often wanders, as he pursues passing thoughts, and he gets easily distracted from the present and material world with threads of consciousness.

History
Ekwÿöf grew up as a son of a fisherman. During his seventh year he was knocked from a fishing boat and believed to have drowned. The other fishermen pulled his cold body from the sea and tried to revive him without success. A funeral was held, and his body laid to rest in the village's field of bones. Two days and two nights he lay on the wooden platform before awaking with a start and finding his way back to his parent's house. The initial reaction from his family was one of fear and awe, believing him to be a ghost. However he convinced them he was very much a living boy and had no memory of the time between falling into the water and awaking among the ancestor's bones. Over the years since, he grew into a man, and the belief that he was some sort of undead faded from the minds of his family and neighbours.
After his eighth winter, Ekwÿöf moved a short distance from his village to begin a life of relative solitude. He had been experiencing episodes of similar absence and memory gaps which led him to understand he was somehow different following his near death as a child. Over the years which followed, through meditation and self study he has developed a fine degree of control over his psychic abilities.
Psionics
Ekwÿöf is a capable psychic with talents in the path of Somatics, and Etherealism. Some Layor will come to him seeking answers from their departed ancestors which Ekwÿöf has proven to able to contact. Despite this talent, he has repeatedly avoided calls from the village to become their priest.
