“Swords, lances, arrows, machine guns, and even high explosives have had far less power over the fates of nations than the typhus louse, the plague flea, and the yellow-fever mosquito. Civilizations have retreated from the plasmodium of malaria, and armies have crumbled into rabbles under the onslaught of cholera spirilla, or of dysentery and typhoid bacilli. Huge areas have bee devastated by the trypanosome that travels on the wings of the tsetse fly, and generations have been harassed by the syphilis of a courtier. War and conquest and that herd existence which is an accompaniment of what we call civilization have merely set the stage for these more powerful agents of human tragedy.”

Hans Zinsser, Rats, Lice and History

  Medicine man. No really, it says so on that fancy degree he can't show anyone since it has his real name on it. Suffice to say, Lono is keyed into the medical establishment and health of Edinburgh first, and tries to do his best despite this to occasionally be a useful member of Mage society. He sees concierge medicine as a regrettable but necessary step to protect his privacy and security, and hopes to parlay it into a means of providing care to even the least fortunate. In the mind of the 'Radiohead Surgeon' Obrimos, ignorance is caused by poverty, illness, and suffering. One must alleviate the basic hierarchy of needs before others can ascend.

Not to say he doesn't hide this grand design behind a healthy wall of cynicism, dry wit, and world-weariness. He saves lives on a daily basis. What have _you_ done for humanity lately?

*Someone Call for the Doctor: Need a medico? Lono is a mystical medical doc! Note: Sarcasm not optional

*Lumen Society: Fellow Member? Lono was picked up by the Luminaries mostly for his progressive view of the future. Also because it fits in with his whole messianic worldview.

  He is tall, not in the classic manner but with a broadness of shoulder and hip that grants a superior stance over those less graced in the department of posture. Eyes are large and widely set, murky brown pools matching the barely present sheaf of brown hair, much akin to that favored by those in the armed services. On his wrist is a tattoo of the staff of Asclepius, and low on the neck is the motto 'Valetudo per Venia'. He wears no jewelry save for a pinky ring, but instead of any jewels instead is a chunk of stainless steel. His clothes tend to be well tailored, designed more to impress with utility and quality rather than blatant design chops.
