Kanatash (Sons of Mercy)
“Nice place, but I’ve got a job to do, and I can’t do it here.”
Kanatash is a Kalasthar from the Prime world of Eberron, sucked into Sigil along with a number of his comrades (Crown Guard included) about ten years ago. His primary objective is to find a portal back to Eberron, a task that has proven difficult, as portals to any of Eberron (of its own thirteen “outer” planes) are rare. Lacking resources, he and his group joined up with the Sons of Mercy, the faction that best espouses the beliefs of the Quori spirit that inhabits all Kalashtar.
Kanatash’s search has for a portal to Eberron has been fruitless; worse yet is the lingering fear that dying on the outer planes might have on their Quori hosts, cut off from their fellow Kalasthar brethern and the Dreaming Dark. The Sons of Mercy have been a great help in establishing a base of operations for Kanatash and his fellows, but the faction is hardly in a position to aid Kanatash in his search. He has directed his brethren to spread out on the planes to widen their search; if the portal exists, it does not exist within Sigil.
Kanatash himself, is trying to find a way into the Region of Dream, hoping that Eberron’s own plane known as Dal Quor connects to it. Unfortunately, the Quori spirit inside all Kalashtar prevent them from entering the plane the “natural” way. But, Kanatash looks at it this way: searching for two rare portals doubles his odds of finding at least one. When not searching, he tends to spend his time entertaining children on Bytopia, usually through his talent for juggling knives.
