Durnál has always had a strong sense of purpose. From an early age, he wanted to help people. Since he had no magical talent, he studied medicine and apothecary in the temple of Thúmis in Páya Gúpa. He rose to be one of the top physicians in Páya Gúpa before he decided to move to Jakálla find more advanced teachers. He has a marketplace shop where he sells his services and his salves. He lives at his clan house.
The First Moon Clan is a medium status clan, predominately consisting of merchants and artisans, as well as some bureaucrats and priests. It has no specific religious affiliation. It is most prevalent in the south with large clan houses at Jakalla, Thraya, Jaikalor, and Penom.
When he isn't treating patients, Durnál works long hours in his lab, preparing his concoctions. He often leaves preparations burning on the brazier, having forgotten them. He also forgets to change his robes after spilling ingredients. This causes some consternation at his clan house and the temple.
He was recently asked to go on an underworld expedition organized by the temple of Thúmis to rescue a previous expedition. K´lti (from a previous issue) is also on this expedition.
