Leonardo da Vinci

The Solar Polymath


An "insane" prophet who is often found wandering the east criticizing everyone he comes across. His wit is as sharp as his tongue however, and most encounters ended up with him being tossed out of town. While physically intimating he has never once, even in his common druken state, used it towards violence.

Underneath the crazed exterior lies an incredibly sharp mind who is eons behind his time (towards the golden age of Creation). A man of unquenchable curiosity that is cursed with an feverishly inventive imagination. The world to him seems illogical and wasteful, yet when he points out these flaws he is cursed and ostrichized. When he doubted the logic of the immaculate order - such as the relationship between the dragons and Sol, he barely had time to outrun the pyre. Exiled from his home of Repubblica italiana, he wandered the east heading towards the fabled city of Nexus, a city of endless wanders. He worked as a tinker for food and lodging and went hungry when work was not around.

One day he came across a curious group. It was the Astartes marching north from Rathess to join the war. The wonderous devices these beings possessed delighted his imagination. Conversation with the Astartes proved disappointing, it is obvious that their amazing equipment is beyond their own comprehension. Until he met Leeyata-Dharacya. Completely smittened by her wisdom and brilliance he felt he had at last found his people. Impressed with this mortal's mind, Leeyata-Dharcya arranged for his transport to Rathess. There he may learn the true wisdom of the world and not waste this blessed intellect.

Finally found his true home, Leonardo became a fervent follower of the Unconquered Sun and devoted himself to the study of the wisdom locked within the walls of Rathess. Even with all that he had witnessed it was still insufficient to dampen the sheer shock when the Unconquered Sun marked him as his, months later.
