An Apprentice Seer Born Under The Narceous Sky
Pontus Varjo was an apprentice seer, and the master of one moon, in Danaris. He was the only son of Susie Varjo, single mother and former sausage festival champion. As a young man in his 16th year, Pontus travelled to see the seer of the Lightspring Tower alongside Naedas Lutand and Sitani Wo, two others who were reaching adulthood.
Pontus, Naedas and Sitani were accosted by bandits on the road back to Danraris, and the ensuing fight was spotted by a Harmonium patrol, who rushed in to quell the conflict. The young men and the bandits were then all taken to the Rehabilitation Camp on Arcadia, to correct their violent behaviour and, eventually, help them bring peace to their world. Pontus experienced the most difficulty of the three adjusting to life in the camp, and quickly began a dust smuggling ring to alter the flavours of the repetitious foods. Pontus carved a position of power for himself in the relative underworld of the camp, respected and feared by many.
However, one morning following an unusual outburst, the Harmonium searched his room and found his dust and collection of burrs. After questioning Tim Ocher on what these items meant, Pontus was segregated from the rest of the patients and put into a special re-education program. When he returned, he was unusually orderly, and clung desperately to his routines.
Eventually, when his chair was the casualty of a fight at morning meal, his desperation to maintain his routines caused him to snap, and he began attacking guards and patients alike, screaming for his chair. The guards, unable to hold him down, beat him into unconsciousness, and he was taken away.
When Pontus did not return, Naedas made contact with the guardswoman Amalia and was informed that Pontus had died.
