Qutha Buvu Pah
The native people of Zelos II, the Zelosians, fear the darkness. Having no ability to see in anything dimmer than the light of a full moon, superstition and myth lore about terrors in the dark are rampant. The various cities and townships have many differing, and similar tales that direct the young and old alike to eschew the darkness and strive towards light. The stories of what can be found in the light allegories for trust, generosity and kindness
Qutha, second son, fourth of eight children to f Oru and Cirrili Pah was raised in such a fashion. Turn away from the dark, beware what might be lurking there, keep your face turned towards light and help others to reach for it. A family of Orchardists who worked in cultivated copses of trees to produce food for their small township and to provide extra for export, to gain additional income ? or to give to those who had a poor harvest. The Pah's unwillingness to extort via trade prices or by gouging their fellows left them comfortable and wealthy in spirit if not credits. Two of their family had been lost to night before he was born, caught by predatory animals they could not see with the failing light, another before his tenth year. Remains identified and mourned, reinforcing the lessons to be wary of shadow and sunset.
Quick witted and agile, young Qutha's early years were spent in schooling provided by local instructors as well as holo-comm accessed remote learning gained by the community pooling funds for a communication hub to be purchased. The towns sole luxury, in a community where the tallest buildings were the granaries and storage houses that rose almost twenty meters. Intuitive to his family and peers, Qutha displayed a canny sense for what others may want and what to say to placate arguments or turn others towards better pursuits. Alert to potential bullies seemingly moments before they would have spotted him and often drawing aside those who would be made targets, often taking their place while attempting to talk down the aggressors. Seeking peace.
His brothers and sisters enjoyed his knack for knowing things moments sooner, save for at games of tag or hide and find, but most of all they enjoyed knowing that if they ventured beyond the perimeter that he would unerringly guide them to adventure and out of danger, most of the time. It was this growing sense for threats that developed him into a treasure of the local farms and orchards when twilight started to come and with it hunting animals seeking easy prey. He never sought prominence in the community though. A man happy to take on his part with the Orchard, even when he and his siblings had fully left home, aiding expanding their family plot and in the nature of turning towards light, helped others do the same. He and many others assumed he would be the one of his siblings to remain home and possibly build his own patch off of the family plots.
The galaxy had other ideas.
Qutha is a farmer by trade and remains true to his orchardist upbringing even following his being taken away from Zelos II, to the wider galaxy. Using his travels to acquire clippings and seedlings to add to his own growing garden of fruiting trees. But his rustic upbringing also gave him the proper background to become the caretaker of the porgs that followed from the world of Ach-To, tending to them like one would close family and very often found with more than a few hiding among his clothes or trailing after him in spite of his best efforts. His tendency is towards a peaceful nature, enhanced by his study of the Guardians of Whills - the order founded on Jedha and their beliefs regarding the force. Understanding that if he must do violence it was as what must be, but choosing to offer peace and spare lives when drawn unavoidably into combat. Committing himself to his duties in peace or battle in the full conviction that all is as The Force wills it. Should he take a life while trying to defend and preserve it, should he succeed or fail. He is a servant and emissary of The Force. Beholden to its demands for good or ill.
A quiet musician, in his spare time, a studier of string and woodwind instruments, the natural flow of musical notes worked into his meditative studies. Not often expressed publicly, in truth Qutha is very much a private man. Open to listen to lessons, to new concepts and ideas for study, but more often found in his own form of hermitage, surrounded by texts in various form, his porg charges and plants being ready for planting. The hustle and bustle that so many others seem to embrace being avoided. Quiet and solitude, seeking what it may be that The Force wants of him.
