Follower of Ioun, whose teachings are as follows:
- Seek perfection of your mind by bringing reason, perception and emotion into balance with one another.
- Accumulate, preserve and distribute knowledge in all forms. Pursue education, build libraries, and seek out lost and ancient lore.
- Be watchful at all times for cults of Vecna, who seek to control knowledge and keep secrets. Oppose their schemes, unmask their secrets and blind them with the light of truth and reason.
Helios was born on the island of Oghma. His parents had moved to the island before Helios was born. They left the Capital due to the increased threat of the Order, they felt that they did not want to raise their child the place the Order was changing it into. Oghma was a welcoming open place and when Helios was but a child, he began his studies at the Temple. It wasn’t until the island was attacked did he learn that his mentor all these years was Ioun herself!
Personality traits of Helios:
- He believes that action without proper planing is foolishness.
- Knowledge is power: Share it with allies, use it against enemies.
- Using illusions or trickery to deceive the weak willed or evil is acceptable.
- He strives to not let his emotions get the better of him, but this is the aspect of Ioun’s teachings he never mastered. Helios is sometimes prone to emotional outbursts, but does his best to keep these at bay.
