An Ai-Naidari, shorter than average, and more powerfully built. Black with abbreviated white ventrals, particularly white hands and a white "flower face," a pattern on the face like an asterisk. Square-jawed, with coronal eyes: very pale blue, nearly white, rimmed in black. When on duty, in a short robe and pants, black with a stole; off-duty, he... still wears black, for the most part.
A man given to dry humor, insightful, with a powerful and incisive intellect, schooled to careful use of words, trained in philosophy, law and religion.
Kor was an orphan, one of Winter's sons, raised by a priest in service to Saresh.
