Quiet, impassive, mysterious. Rainer is not his actual name. Merely where he calls his home. Its hard to tell much about him. He is older obviously, however his white fur makes seeing specifics about him difficult. Not so much hiding at the top of this section of the world it is where he chooses to live. Around the area is nothing but the stillness of silence. Students, of which you hope to find yourself one, busy themselves around the mountain top. Nearby is his apprentice, Charlene Sanshiro The one who you managed to make contact with initially. Charlene, is the only one with the privilege to speak or use technology here. When Charlene, takes over as the new “Rainier” though, that will all have to go, as she will then pick her own successor. However the current master has much left in his large sasquatch frame.
