Once a rather handsome Kel’Regar male, Sreth’kal’Lahn is now a gaunt, and sunken appearing individual, his once smooth and supple body reduced to little but skin and bone. Peculiarly, that taut, bone-colored skin is bursting with strange and unusual growths, entirely crystalline in nature, as if he had rolled in a field of gemstones, only to have them merge with his body.
Having newly encountered the Thoron, the great crystal ones,the Kel’Regar chose to send to them an ambassador. Scouring their worlds for one with the presence of mind to deal with the crystallic hive mind, they eventually settled on a particular young man, one of the few who had studied the nature of the few gems that studded their homeworld, and a promising musician.
This selection would prove, over the years, to be more ceremonial than functional, due to the ability of the One-and-All to communicate directly to the leader of the Kel’Regar through their own ambassador. And so it was that the young Ambassador, now known as Sreth’kal’Lahn, the Singer to Stone, was given permission instead to study the One-and-All, so long as they could study him, in return.
