Obdrin is the religious capitol of the country of Upper Rondin. It isn't uncommon to see religious orders of all types represented all over the city. This monk is a member of the Elemental Order, a strict sect of elementalists who believe that in order to be closer to the core elements, they must live in abject poverty. Their temples are dark and poorly heated and you can usually find them outside deep in prayer or meditation. Although poor and sometimes even homeless, the members of the EO are extremely weell educated and very powerful with their magics. The symbols on the door don't mean anything, they're the beginning letters of my name in an alphabet/language I've been creating since I was 10 or 11 called Thulay.
