Upuaut: Opener of the Ways
Upaut’s title derives from his position in the Sekhemet military, a scout who cleared routes for the army and hunter game for their forage. He was low born in the “Orders of the Fit”, even for a wolf-child, due to the disgraceful death of his brother. Consequently, his parents leaned hard on him to be an upstanding citizen. They encouraged him to join the army, both to regain glory to the family name and to stamp out any lingering ideas he might have inherited from his brother. He is not the zealot his brother was and has conformed to the wishes of his family. However, he is growing tired of the continual skirmishes within the Order over inconsequential and sometimes imaginary slights. And he has witnessed terrible cruelty due to the mindset cultivated by army training — the enemy are soulless animals; we’re doing them a favor by tormenting and crushing them.
