I definitely think it's more than "subtle". PP's backstory is one of the most 
fascinating parts of him, I'd say, especially his heritage as an adventurer 
first and mystic second, who became a greater mystic than most simply because of 
a combination of time, place, and need.

That said, a situation like this doesn't make the most of the differences - as 
psychopomps, both PP and OK would be looking to gently guide the spiritually 
ambiguous where they need to go and show them what they need to see. So your 
story came out fine, IMHO.

Andrew "NO .SIG MAN" "Juan" Perron, also, he's just rad.
