Peleps Forsis descends from a small offshoot of house Peleps; a patrician line desceneded from the third daughter (unExalted) of Peleps Nalim. It was considered a great surprise when he, his siter, and all of their cousins Exalted within weeks of each other in their late teens; clearly, the blood skips a few generations.
Forsis, a water-aspect, demonstrated great skill at the martial arts from a young age, so much so that the Cloister of Wisdom, after his Exaltation, sponsored him for admittance. However, to the shock of many and most, his family politely but firmly rebuffed this offer, instead apprenticing him to a long series of private martial arts tutors; retired Immaculates, mostly, drawn from the ranks of houses olders generation. This caused a brief stir of scandal; however, Forsis distinguished himself greatly in the Form of the Water Dragon, defeating a number of much older and more powerful Immaculates in open competitions during festivals. His house has begun to quietly position him for advancement to greater roles within it; it is said that only Peleps Deled, his cousin, is more skilled in the Immaculate Arts within the house, and Forsis is dutiful, honorable, and most of all -loyal- to Peleps, whereas Deled cares only for himself and the furtherance of his religious agenda.
Peleps is a generally quiet, modest man, who speaks with great force when need be but always calmly, his words flowing forth like smooth, unending waves, gently pushing aside all opposition. He does not make friends easily but few count themselves his enemy; he is far to polished for that, the result of painstaking efforts after his Exaltation; as a child he was thought to be terribly withdrawn and a social misanthrope.
His parents are Peleps Marin and Peleps Jezreel; he has one sister, Pacifica, a fire-aspect, and is known to be close to his two cousins, Sesus Shannon and Sesus Raquel (his mother's brother married into that house), earth and air aspects respectively.
