Khaga Candrin is a young man - no older than sixteen by the look of him - with Realmish features, golden blond hair, gold eyes and pale skin. The scent of peach blossoms follows him constantly whether he wants it to or not, although he can tone it down a bit if needed. He wears robes of a quality befitting a resident of the Heavenly City, with a green jade skin mount amulet set onto his breastbone. He often throws himself into his work, focused on doing the best he can at every chance.
To properly tell Khaga's history, one must look back at his mother. Dinastra , the Chronicler of Magical Permutations, is a god of middling rank in the Bureau of Heaven's Division of Exaltation. She serves directly under Lytek, studying and documenting the creation and use of Charms by the Exalted and adding her findings to Lytek's encyclopedia of Charm knowledge. Although she does enjoy her work, she longed more than anything to have a child that carried the power of the Celestial Exalted. Thus, she seeded her name and her desire to a number of notable sorcerers throughout the centuries.
However, most of these sorcerers were Dragon-Blooded. Parad, already furious at the dilution of the Dragon-Blooded bloodlines over the centuries, was not amused by the intentional mingling that Dinastra was taking part in. It is well-known in Yu-shan that the deities can barely be in the same room as one another without an incident breaking out.
Despite Dinastra's efforts, none of her tens of children had been able to grant her greatest desire. Khaga, her youngest child, was the result of a liason between Dinastra and Ledaal Catala Nomar, a Wood-aspected Sorcerer fresh out of the Heptagram. Nomar has seen his son a grand total of twice: once during a Carnival of Meeting when Khaga was five and again at ten when Dinastra was on the Blessed Isle as part of her research. Barring those two trips, the only world Khaga knew was Yu-Shan. He thrived under his mother's care, doing all the right things and coming the closest to earning an Exaltation than any of her other children.
And, eventually he did. Just not what she was looking for.
When Khaga was fourteen, he was walking by the gardens where the celestial peaches were held when he heard a commotion. A man had managed to fight off the lions guarding the peaches and was running down the street towards Khaga. Seeing the injured lions infuriated the young God-blood and he charged towards the thief, not noticing the storm of peach blossoms surrounding him. Within moments, the young teen beat down the thief, his limbs strengthened by his sudden Exaltation. The thief was taken away, and Khaga was half-escorted half-carried back to his mother's manse.
Dinastra was furious when she saw her son infused with the Essence of Sextus Jylis. All of her hard work, for nothing! Khaga was promptly thrown out of the house, allowed to take only a few of his belongings with him. He thought about going back to his father at the start, but the thought about having to live down there was a terrifying one. Thankfully for Khaga, a Chosen of Serenity by the name of Jubilant Aria heard about his plight and offered him a place to stay. She even arranged for him to get a job with the Division of Forbidden Gods; not the choicest of workplaces, but it was the best that she could do on short notice.
