HISTORY

Luke was born to Anekis Morthos, an infamous Tiefling mage Anekis was known for her pacts with demonic entities, and her delving into dark magics. She had a child and immediately started setting that child up as an heir to her somewhat questionable activities.

When Luke was ten, a bounty was put on his mother’s head, and she was caught and executed for her crimes. Luke was put in an orphanage. It did not go so well. His very race made others distrust him, and that fact that his mother was an infamous evil mage that used her power to ravage those within her reach, didn’t help much either. He took the human name as a way to distance himself from his mother.

Luke has always been pretty sure his infernal bloodline is not generations old like other Tieflings. His mother was pretty clear about his paternity.

When he was 12, he ran from the orphanage, and lived on the street. He drifted with other street urchins, and heard you could make a living in Kokand. He, and a small band of street kids, hitched rides with caravans for day work, and got to city.

When Luke, came to the city, he kept seeing cats. He would pet and feed the cats, and they would try to lead him. The more he investigated, the more he realized the cats would always lead him to Sekhmet. She was a trickster god of healing. It happened again and again.

Finally, when he was having a particularly bad day, he gave the last of his beef jerky to one of the cats, and followed it. He stood in front of the temple until a woman came out. Salkya took him in. He was 15, and taken in as an initiate of Sekhmet.

It was Salkya’s position that shielded Luke from being immediately expelled. He was good at his clerical duties, but his race wasn’t exactly normal for the temple. One of the other priests dug up who his mother was, and that didn’t make it any easier.

He continued to excel despite that. He still feeds the cats of Korkand, as a thank you for guiding him to his calling. He’s very religious, and maintains his race was just another amusement for Sekhmet.

He prefers to take work outside the temple, because Salkya may shelter him, but temple politics are not kind to Luke.
