What potentioal conflicts/problems/challenges might this character face? Because he has lost favor, he is unable to use some of his natural ability, which may cause problems when he is trying to keep a human from harm. Likewise he is not allowed to announce that he isn’t human, but he can’t lie so avoiding questions that a normal human would have no problems with like “where do you live?” , “do you have any family?” and “where did you grow up?” will be challenging. On a more mundane note, he’s never taken a mortal form before, so body functions such as eating and sleeping will be new and possibly unnerving if not just scary at first.
