Well crap... gonna have to use the backup now 'cause Tekan wouldn'ta been alive because Ekimu was 'dead' for a thousand years!
It also seems that I'll probably be making Tekan about 80...
Name: Karx (pronounced Car-Ks)
Mask: basic Okotoran mask (white protector mask) with a visor/magnifying glass/scanner attachment that can fold up
Weapons/equipment: Short-sword, fur coat with temporary cooling generators built in (rechargeable), couple of basic mechanical tools, basic repair parts for his arm/eye-glass thing (1 use major damage, 2 use minor), stone chisel, excavation brush, notebook's & writing tools
Appearance: Just your basic ice Okotoran, for the most part (physically).
His distinguishing features are a well sized, white, fur lined cloak he's always wearing that has a custom built in cooling system for when he goes to hotter areas but which can only last for three hours before the fuel cells need replacing, and that's only for basic hotter areas, if he was near an active volcano/lava pool/whatever it would last much less time and a robotic, prosthetic left arm.
Personality: While he my seem pretty much like any other ice Okotoran his personality is much different than most of them. He's a very happy go lucky guy, almost in a perpetual state of cheerfulness and being quite friendly. He's also quite a bit of a scaredy cat though, he's easily spooked and he's not much of a fighter, getting too nervous to be truly effective and preferring just to run away.
He has a weird obsession with rumors, strange facts and tidbits of lesser known knowledge, sometime going out of his way to get good ones. He's also loves to experiment, making strange, typically pointless seeming and non-marketable contraptions.
Due to this many don't want to test them but he's happy to do that himself and even perform modifications on himself, such as a visor thing he connected to himself along with modifying and upgrading a prosthetic arm he got after an unfortunate building collapse.
Bio: he's essentially your basic ice Okotoran, albeit a more cheerful friendly one. The only characteristics that really stand out are how much he experiments and that he's ok with doing/testing them on himself, such as messing with his replacement arm.
That's actually how he got the visor/magnifying glass/scanner attachment connected to him. The other noticeable characteristic with him is his knowledge on anything unexpected and his ability to get it(?).
You want to know who that strange Okotoran who recently showed up is? He's your guy! You want to hear strange theories on what happened to Ekimu and Makuta that you've never heard before? He knows 'em! You want to know rumors about some cult or other you've yet to hear or that aren't supposed to be known? He's probably got 'em!
He also does appear to be friends or at least acquaintances with Tekan, knowing quite a bit about him and being on speaking terms with him, Tekan even bought him a short-sword and showed him a bit on how to use it so he'd have some kind of protection.
He is somewhat young, being around the age of a teenager-young adult despite his slightly childish behavior and excitability.
Little extra bit of backstory for him:
Karx, before he got into his minor obsession/hobby of finding and recording rumors, interesting, not well known facts and other fascinating tidbits of information, no matter how useless seeming to others, originally wanted to be the chronicler and was trying to become a possible candidate until (current chronicler/related) was chosen.
While he was a touch disappointed that he wasn't chosen he held no ill will towards (insert name) and actually felt quite happy for him, knowing the position of chronicler was a fun one and himself considering it a good blessing.
Yet, even after he had lost his chance to become the chronicler that didn't stop him, he decided to become an unofficial one, recording the stories a true chronicler might miss while they wrote about the great deeds of heroes, the evil doings of villains and other great and terrible events.
He chose to write about interesting stories that happened with the Okotoran and such, even if those stories were not what would usually be considered something of importance enough to record. He tended to follow rumors a lot in those days looking for ones that could lead to possibly interesting stories and seeing if they were true, but as time went on he found himself becoming more and more interested by the rumors themselves, while he still enjoyed finding the stories he found himself looking for and recording rumors he used to dismiss as not being true or not being good enough stories.
As time went further on his fascination began growing and developing, soon evolving to him recording interesting facts, information and myths/stories he had never heard of.
He'd start dedicating himself to certain subjects at a time, so he might look for all the rumors and such he could find on the mask makers then after he found everything he could find he'd go and start researching a different topic but all the while still listening for any other rumors and tidbits of info he'd come across in his research.
So far he has at least a hundred or so (less or more and all of differing sizes. Some are rewrites of older ones in cleaner/more organized form) notebooks. Most of them are dedicated to their own subject.
He also has one special notebook he always keeps on himself that he writes down any info he feels is truly useful and will be helpful later
So far he is dedicated to finding out everything he can about Tekan, a harder task than he expected due to the sheer lack of info on Tekans past and how well hidden he keeps it himself. Currently he has a partial amount.
