One of the great strengths of HQ2 is the ability to make up local hero/ancestor cults if you need something that isn't already written. Hero cults have just one rune, so appropriate to acrobats would be the movement, illusion, water, etc runes. Pick one that the hero has, and get them to fill it out. Have a look in Sartar:KoH (p131) and Heortling Mythology for examples to model it on.

Give them a limited scope on the affinities (as they are not the rune source).


Egin the tumbler (storm)
This Orlanthi Hero was known for his skill in dancing with the wind, and was able to perform many seemingly impossible manoeuvres using his wind magic.
