How he arrived @ Poon-Hill

Beaten by his second father partly because he likes dressing like a girl; left home and mother to live at Pashupati Nat. Arrived 4-5 months ago at Durbar Square where seen sleeping behind the temple of Kali. Was found by Ursula one evening shivering.

Misc Very religious, particulary to Kali deity (angry incarnation of Shiva) which he prays daily. Easy character; enjoys sharing time with girls. Ran away 3 times on the first week before integrating with others
