When creating a master of ceremonies, think about where your character got your training. Were they trained in a monastery, devoted to a god, taught by a mentor, or self-taught? Why did your character choose to become a master of ceremonies? Do you want to become a protector, savior, or a brave knight? Also, who is the god who gave you powers?
