Dramatis PersonaeHurm came to the monastery at a young age and was identified early on as something of a prodigy. Not only did he excel at the physical training, but he demonstrated an unusual understanding of the philosophy behind the training.
After observing Hurm’s progress and hearing him remark that he often felt a sense of deja-vu, the temple’s master took an interest in the boy and discovered that Hurm is an old soul, a very old soul in fact. Not only that but he appears to be able to draw on the experiences of these previous lives, using the lessons learned in the past to help guide him now. Under the tutelage of the master, Hurm has discovered his destiny; nothing short of true enlightenment. True enlightenment is understanding that the barriers between mind, body, and spirit are artificial and self imposed, and the removal of these barriers allows you to become one – with yourself.
Armed with the knowledge of who he is what what he must do, Hurm pursued his studies with vigor, quickly rising through the ranks of the monastery to become a teacher in his own right. Hurm is currently in charge of training the youngest students, a task that requires patience and understanding. His private time is spent in a kind of meditation, illuminating the sacred texts of his order, a slow and painstaking process. As with all of the monks, Hurm is at the service of the Order’s master, and follows her wishes without hesitation.
Like all monks, Hurm understands that his skill and power comes from within, not from any external source. He believes this power must be used to protect those less fortunate, and that he exists to serve others, not the other way around. Those displaying psionic ability need to be nurtured and properly trained, lest they use their power to subjugate others.
