Character Profile: Daneet ‘Dan’ Junder


Daneet Junder is an 8th generation Born Insider. He is a Master Kineticist and Master Photonist and a Novice Neural Networker. Daneet showed early promise as a Kineticist and was enrolled into that school. During his training he became fast friends with Lammer Hunstar. That friendship became strained when Daneet joined the Watchdogs and ended when Daneet was forced to execute Lammer’s Neural Networking teacher Sall Ninnf. The two men fought. As a result of that battle, which Lammer survived, Daneet took the decision to master the school of Kineticism, recognising the usefulness of that discipline in combat.

Daneet was strongly affected by the artwork of Pilorne Hunstar. When he saw her work for the first time he immediately fell in love with the artist. In order to avoid corruption the Watchdogs are forbidden from taking lovers so Daneet never made his feelings known to Pilorne although he would take whatever chance he could to be in her presence. The strength of Daneet’s emotional connection to Pilorne and her work was so strong that upon her apostasy he was affected as if he himself had been personally rejected by her. In his rage he destroyed her most celebrated works. It is this sense of personal betrayal that causes Daneet to hunt Pilorne down, not her betrayal of the sect.
