Kovos Varuxath

"I'm a medic, Lucius, not a doctor!"
— Kovos Varuxath
Kovos Varuxath (born 2 Alturiak 1468) is a triton medic and member of the Ardent's Beta Team. Formerly hunted by triton authorities for a crime he did not commit, he lived in exile on the surface. Kovos also has a connection to the solar, Sorath, who provides the triton with eldritch abilities.

Mental characteristics

Personal history

Born in 1468 DR in the Sea of Fallen Stars, Kovos was the oldest of three siblings, and lived an unremarkable childhood. He was trained as a doctor in his youth, and upon reaching adulthood, spent much time acting as a combat physician in conflicts against the merrow. In 1489 DR, he was falsely accused of murdering his mentor, Lasliren Zuregath, and was exiled as a result. Lasliren’s husband, Zolos Zuregath, however, continued to hunt Kovos to seek revenge. Kovos spent the next four years above the surface, living in seclusion and occasionally helping nearby villagers and travellers with his medical knowledge.   He spent much time meditating, and trying to seek divine guidance in order to find his path in life. One night, he received a vision from Sorath, a Solar that is not bound to any particular god, and has been in quiet contemplation for several centuries, semi-consciously granting power and tasks to certain beings to combat the forces of evil. Sorath tasked him with rooting out evil and helping those in need, alluding to a greater purpose. In working toward this purpose, Kovos eventually found the Ardent and was quick to join up.
