City of Dusk
Javatu is the Astronomer King of Vatu Matal. Although he belongs to a small, unfavored tribe, Javatu remembers a time when the Gatekeepers were the greatest tribe in all the preserve. He desperately wishes to lead his people in a return to their former glory, and is absolutely ruthless in the pursuit of his goal. Unfortunately, for all the progress Javatu makes at a civic level, the tribe does not seem to grow in size or favor. Javatu is cunning and intelligent in his dealings, and although he tries to be polite to everyone he encounters he tends to rub many people the wrong way.
Javatu is a member of the Desdes Mara, and he personally believes that the gods are simply powerful mortals that have used their arcane might to enslave the Salastese of the Preserve. He is destined to lead an uprising against the New Gods, but unless something changes this uprising is also destined to fail.
Javatu is a Salastese man that stands about 5’10", with slightly tan skin and dark blue eyes. He has a square face, broad shoulders, and a narrow waist. His hair is shoulder length and is a dark auburn color. Javatu usually wears the garments of his office: A dull yellow linen robe with a colorful, feathered cloak; an elaborate head-dress decorated with gold and jade; and silver wristbands in the shape of coiled snakes.
