While he is by all accounts human, people can remember Dimitris having been seen in Solaris or at least a couple of centuries by now. What's known is that he's the architect behind the modern irrigation and water supply system currently used by the city and which is the inspiration to how most of the more advanced cities in the Sh'areen Caliphate now operate. This is how even individual households can have access to fresh water without having to carry heavy buckets from a well — something which has also made great strides in preventing the spread of diseases. Thanks to the improved way to distribute the precious water, the lives of many, especially in the poorer parts of the city, have been significantly improved. It has also made it possible to build in a better way, and many streets are now easier to navigate as they're made to be straight enough to make it easy to repair any broken pipes.
Dimitris is a bit paler than many native to the Sa'ar Desert, though not extremely so. Spending too much time working, he has picked up a bad habit of often being hunched over instead of standing tall, something that often gives him a mild back-ache. As a human, Dimitris is already six times or more the age he should be able to be, but he refuses to talk about how this is still a thing. Some believe he is a chosen of Oghma, the god of knowledge; others secretly accuse him of having made a deal with a devil, though they can't point to anything nefarious Dimitris has ever done for said devil. While the man has some white in his hair that elves say he didn't have a century ago, he' still doesn't look very old.
Apparel & Accessories
For the most part, Dimitris prefers simple clothes, even to the point where he stands out in the Sky district where he lives.
The first documented times Demitris shows up are just a few decades after Sunrise. Solaris was struck harshly during the year of night, and several sections of the city were in ruins. There are official documents that show designs by Dimitris on how to rebuild efficiently by asking citizens to aid in the reconstruction of their neighbourhood. This turned out to be a success both financially and in increasing popularity for the Grand Vizier of the city. After this, Dimitris has been known to show up every now and then but prefers to keep to his home and workshop in the Sky district. Most of what is known about him or his work is what has been told by his life-partner, the Bard Half-Elf Janet. She is, of course, not the most objective source one might imagine, but her stories usually revolve more about what is achieved thanks to their efforts rather than Dimitris' inventions as such. The water system was built in the early thirteenth century, and it is the to-date most substantial single civil engineering effort the huge city has undergone. Dimitris himself oversaw much of the construction, and for many, this is the event that he is known for. He has helped make several improvements for people's homes since, but nothing as public.
Even a brief conversation with Dimitris reveals him to be learned in many things. He continually argues that one can not expect to create well-engineered solutions for people without first understanding those people. This he's well versed in history, religion, and more. And should there ever be a gap in his knowledge Janet is sure to fill him in.
Morality & Philosophy
While he might be the great architect of much of the more modern sections of Solaris, Dimitris usually avoids the spotlight and prefers to give credit to the communities around what he has built. For the same reason, he has little patience with those who consider themselves more important than others.
