Leader of the Steampunk Youth
Great Leaders Honor the Ancestors
I am not the originator I am merely the keeper of ancient traditions.
Vahn is the leader of the steampunk youth in the village of Gangleton. He comes from a long line of historians practitioners and keepers of ancient ceremonies and wisdom. His position to practice and educate others in the wisdom and traditions passed down from the people who descended from the mystical land of Rou, is unique and in truth quite dangerous. There are those in the village of Gangleton who would better have the ancient traditions lost forever or better yet kept only for themselves as their source of power.
Fortunately for Vahn his family has been respected in the community since its origins, which is a time not so far back though far enough in the past that majority of people in the village have not a clue who Vahn or his family are. In so Vahn does have that clear sense that only those who wish to know the ways of the ancients will know him. The lot of the village are too consumed with abiding to the laws and customs of the new leaders. And it is very well know that these new leaders do not intend to carry forth any ancient traditions cause there is no time for that. The new world is one ripe with innovation and growth. The ways of the ancient ones are meager compared to the possibilities of the future, or so the new leaders claim.
Vahn is grateful to have such a close group of friends who carry out the rituals with him. These steampunk rebels hold in their hearts the truth of their people and the connection they share with the ancient ones who came before them. This small and youthful group live each day as it is a sacred right to be free and connected to the Earth with all of its beauty. The cherry orchard with which they spend most of their time is nearly theirs for the taking as the rest of the village is concerned with the modern practices bestowed upon them by the new leaders. These common villagers look upon the rebellious steampunk youth as a disgrace to their village.
The steampunk youth will never be found tending to yardwork as the others, instead they will always be found playing music in the cherry orchard. Reviving the ways of their ancient relatives that descended from the mystical land of Rou.
