Heat and Growth
Jack, despite having greater than average aptitude, has never cultivated. Every time he has thought to try, he remembers the looks of hate and fear on the faces of friends and neighbors when they found out his affinities. When people look at him, all they can see are the faces of those they lost to the vicious Sunbelts, after their sect leader went mad and took the rest of the clan with him.
When he recieves an invitation to become an outer disciple of Frigid Mountain, the cultivating sect that watches over the area, he leaps at the chance to leave his village and the people who view him as a remnant of a past better left buried.
Watch Jack as he attempts to rise above the sins of those that shared his features, and seeks to become a force for good in the world, rather than destruction.
