"If you think I walk on all fours, you should then read again the lore."

Rahm Goatman
Rahm is a mysterious creature. One of the more ancient Caparii, dating back from the times of Queen Grief.
He writes and speaks almost always in rhyme, which is partly why it takes him a while to reply in any conversation.
This also causes him to unintentionally end up in a bard's role at some events.
He enjoys nature and would never live in a city.
He likes secretive things and unexplained events.
"See, you must not, to understand the Gods."

This character was fully based on Aristotle in the beginning! This is how it was set up:
Additional Background information:
So, Rahm Kennys was based on Aristotle. All the subjects below have been taught by Rahm at a certain point in the server.
Aristotle was suggested to be the last person to know everything there was to know in its own time. Such an inspiration for an intellectual character in a medieval fantasy roleplay server. Aristotle's views on the physical sciences profoundly shaped medieval scholarship!

In this picture you can see Aristotle right en Plato, his teacher, left. Aristotle gestures to the earth, which represents his belief in knowledge through empirical observation and experience. The same thing Rahm Kennys believes in.

Geology
Aristotle studied almost every field that there was to study, but one of the more important studies for my character must be geology. Aristotle says the changes of the earth are so slow in comparison to our lives, that they are overlooked; and the migrations of people after great catastrophes, such as the exodus, and their removal to other regions, cause the event to be forgotten: So explains also Rham Kennys. Also the rivers and the seas change, as time never fails, neither could the rivers of Altera flow for ever. The places where they sprung were once dry and there is a limit to their operation, while there is none on time.

The Elements
Also other interesting thoughts of Aristotle reflect on my character, and so Rahm Kennys thinks of these in the same way, the elements. Aristotle added Aether as a fifth element, representing the divine forms like stars and planets. Rahm add the Nether as fifth element, representing the unholy forms like corruption...
Each of the four earthly elements has its natural place.
- All that is earthly tends toward the center of the Altera (the earth).
- Water tends toward a sphere surrounding the center.
- Air tends toward a sphere surrounding the water sphere.
- Fire tends toward the lunar sphere (in which the Moon orbits).
When elements are moved out of their natural place, they naturally move back towards it.
This is 'natural motion': In water, earthy bodies sink while air bubbles rise up. In air, rain falls and flame rises. Outside all other spheres, the corrupt, tries to manipulate the elements and uses them against The Crafters. .

Substance, Actuality and potentiality.
Aristotle studied metaphysics, which is a science in the highest degree of abstraction.
A substance is the combination of both matter and form. Matter here being what a thing is made of, for a house this is bricks, stones, wood, etc.. Form here being everything that we define is the thing.
As a summary: The formula that gives the components is the account of matter, the formula that gives the different ways of perceiving the same thing is form.
To explain potentiality: This is what a thing is capable of doing, when the conditions are right and it is not prevented by something.
For instance, a seed of a plant in the soil is potentially a plant, and if it's not prevented by something, will become a plant. Potential things can 'act' or 'be acted upon', which can be innate or learned.
For instance, the eye possesses the potentiality of sight (innate - being acted upon) while the capability of playing a flute can be learned (exercise - acting)
To explain actuality: it is the fulfillment of the end of the potentiality. For the sake of the end exists potentiality. So we can say that it is actuality when a plant does one of the activities that plants do.
In summary: The matter used to make a house has potentiality to be a house and both the activity of building ad the form of the final house are actualities, which is also an end. Then Aristotle proceeds and concludes that the actuality is prior to potentiality in formula, time and substantiality.

"For the sake of which a thing is, is its principle, and the becoming is for the sake of the end; and the actuality is the end, and it is for the sake of this that the potentiality is acquired. For animals do not see in order that they may have sight, but they have sight that they may see."

With this definition of particular substance (matter and form), Aristotle, and so Rahm Kennys, tries to solve the problem of the unity of the beings, for example: "What is it that makes a man one?"

Riddles
Aristotle and his school had a special interest in riddles of the Delphic Oracle and studied the fables of Aesop. Rahm Kennys is very interested in prophecies, riddles in history and myths.
