I have several challenges here:
1. My character has 14 names because he is reincarnated 14 times. This makes it impossible to provide 'a' name. He is the Servant of Memory.
2. His purpose is something that he seeks throughout all 14 of his lives and he only comes close to finding out what it is towards the end. His purpose cannot be revealed in the hook.
3. I liked the Yoda style prose ; )
He is the Servant of Memory - a man reincarnated into multiple lives in human history with the ability to remember them all, searching for his purpose, his reason for existence.
