Roamer spent most of his life before his second breath as a low-ranking Realm bureaucrat. As his life drew onward and the paperwork piled an odd thought began to grow in the back of his mind. By his 50th year he had become convinced that there was more to life than paperwork, and that eventually developed into the thought that he was squandering his life. And so, he resigned from his position, sold his home, and gathered a few of his most valued possessions in a backpack, and set out to travel Creation. After years of aimless wandering through the civilized sections of Creation, Roamer finally decided he needed to do something more, something exciting and challenging, something he could die proud attempting. And so, Roamer decided he would touch the eastern pole, or at least end his life trying. After an odyssey spanning roughly two years, Roamer found himself mere yards from one of the great poles that held creation together. Barely alive from a combination of fatigue, lack of food or water, and wounds amassed throughout his journey, his victory was finally in sight, and this old man could die fulfilled. He struggled with unheard of strength and determination across the thick underbrush, against essence currents that were crushing his very being. At last, he fell, and with one final grab at his goal, he touched the eastern pole. And he could now die in peace.
But, as it happened, Roamer did not die. Within mere seconds of accepting his end, he began to glow with a brilliant golden light. It was at this moment that Roamer took his second breath, and was born anew, a reward he could hardly even imagine for one mortal's petty struggle to find purpose. He now had been given back the life he had squandered in politics and red tape a hundred times over. He now had both the time, and the power, to travel to every corner of creation and everything in between. In a sense, he had achieved his own perfect afterlife, in which he had the body and time to see all of Creation, in all its splendors, rather than just the will.
From there, The Roamer of The Five Winds set out to do just that, and catalog his expedition in one great unified map of Creation. He has been enjoying thoroughly enjoying his mission for nearly 20 years, and has a plethora of stories to tell for it. Since his life is a nirvana to him, he has developed a very easygoing outlook and deep appreciation for life in all its forms. Because of this, he has developed a strong and magnetic charm to complement his new found strength and previously obtained intellect. He has friends and acquaintances in many places and has gathered an impressive repertoire of skills throughout his travels, as he will apply to work in nearly ever form of local labor and participate in any custom or ritual depending on where he is, for the purpose of drinking in the culture.
The Roamer appears as a tall and thin, but muscular elderly man. Although many signs of his age were reversed at the moment of his exaltation, his long white hair and thick beard make it fairly obvious. He wears simple and unassuming clothes that seem ideal for just about any climate (extreme ones excluded.) He wears a large woven hat to protect from the sun, and is rarely seen without his enormous backpack or trusty walking stick. His face is rugged, and is adorned with a fairly abstract biotech eye where his left should be. But his surviving eye is soft, and he is nearly always seen with a grin.

Virtue flaw: Wanderlust (Temperance)
Limit: □□□□□ □□□□□
Limit Break Condition: Being barred from traveling somewhere
Roamer simply becomes bored with his surroundings and decides he needs to leave immediately and go somewhere else away from the circle. Roamer will go to any overblown length to escape the current area he is in if simply walking away is not possible, and make his way to the location he was denied by any means necessary barring murder. He will return roughly 24 hours later almost always with a story to tell. If he is unable to move anywhere else, his desperate efforts will continue until he is freed, and will most likely become more and more irrational as time goes on. Partial Control: Roamer can differentiate between which barriers are a good idea to break and which aren't, for instance, if he is barred entry to a palace, he won't be trying to walk past the guards anyway and probably causing a scene. Instead, he will find wander off into the wilderness, somewhere that will not necessarily cause trouble for himself or the circle.
Coaltredder (Artifact ● Firewand)
Speed 5, +1, 14L, Rate 1, Rate 1, Range 10, 2FS, Attune 2
Coaltredder is a firewand with an elongated barrel to the point where it can be used as a walking stick. According to Roamer, it was an heirloom from his dead uncle that had been mounted over his fireplace, supposedly retired after years of hunting, he brought it along with him to his expedition to The East before his second breath. Oddly enough, the stock of the firewand seems to allow him decent footing on even the most uneven terrain.
Prosthetics of Clockwork Elegance (Artifact ●●●)
+1 Per using the eye, +1 Dex using the leg. Attune 6
Roamer has obtained a few prosthetic enhancements to replace bits of himself lost in previous adventures from the contact in lookshy. So far, his right eye and foreleg are biotech. The foreleg is fairly inconspicuous as it is always covered by his leggings, and the bottom of it matches nicely with the boots he usually wears. The eye, however, is quite obvious, as it is mounted on a panel that almost looks welded on by a number of thin metal 'roots,' but the panel blends rather well into his flesh without scarring. The eye can also adjust focus and zoom, allowing him to examine objects with adept precision and aim better.
Unsurpassed Geetar (Artifact ●●)
+2 automatic successes to all performance rules for attune 3.
Artifact Chain Shirt (Artifact ●)
Soak: +5L/4B, Hardness: 2L/2B, Mobility: 0, Fatigue: 0, Attune: 2
