"My past is not known to you. It is not my will that you should know it. Know that I bear the scars of one who has travelled the Planes. Know that I have never rested long in any one place. Know that I bear the weight of one who has travelled far to be in this place. Know that I am a Githzerai. Know that I am of the people of Zerthimon. It was Zerthimon who knew the Githzerai before we knew ourselves. He knew what had to be done to free us. From his knowing, came action. From his knowing, freedom was born. The Githzerai ceased to be slaves and became a people. Know that I follow the Unbroken Circle of Zerthimon. His words are known to me. His heart is known to me. All that remains is that I know myself."

He is a githzerai, a people who live in Limbo, where the form of matter itself can only be held together by concentration. Like others of his race, he places a great emphasis on the holistic knowledge of things, even the word *know* itself. He used to be a Zerth, but in not *knowing* the teachings of Zerthimon he left the City of the People.

Dak'kon was probably my most liked Planescape character. I thought he was so interesting - concept, background and personal storyline. I miss a lot of the characters like this - ones that had interesting backgrounds and that made you talk to them to find out more about them.

Nod As a person engaged in eastern martial arts I like any character who have some sort of Do (The Way)
