Tenzin Gyatso - The 14th Dalai Lama

"Have you stopped beating your wife yet?"

Nature: Sleepwalker, but given his training in the skill of reincarnating more efficiently he could also be considered a very weak Psychic or Thaumaturge.
Full Name: Jetsun Jamphel Ngawang Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso
First Encountered: 6.6 "And Eternity in an Hour" (a.k.a. "Drama Lama")
Playlist: Neste Sommer - DeLillos

Info: Tenzin is believed to be the 14th incarnation of the "Dalai Lama" position, and is notable for having been the longest lived incumbent thus far. Dalai Lamas are the head monks of the Gelugpa lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989, and is also well known for his lifelong advocacy for Tibetans inside and outside Tibet. For more, there is the Relevant Wikipedia Article.

Died mere moments after meeting the player characters1. Was amazingly ok about this, but given his next incarnation was ready to be born five feet away, and the Norns had been paid off to ensure his next lifetime would be pretty comfy and protected, this is perhaps fairly understandable.

Remembered growing up with the PC's, back when they were the Danavas, and apparently had fond memories and affection for who they used to be. He also felt shame & guilt over how he had reacted with angry and hateful thoughts about exarch-serving soldier-wizards when they were trying to murder his family, without even giving them the benefit of the doubt or trying to see things from their point of view. Given such an attitude, it's hard to say whether a saint like this liking the Danavas is proof that they weren't bad people…..or whether he's so accepting that he'd have liked them even if they were horrible people.
