Mawtra Vishion [Maw-truh / Vi-shi-on]Race:
Apostate + Grey WardenAppearance:
His face was grayish, dark and pale handsome with elegant bone structure of that of the elven people. Yet everything about him seemed more human than they did eleven. His face was strong and structured tightly like of a human male. He was both handsome with multi colored lizard scale like green eyes. Short dark hair in his hood, with bangs that sat atop his forehead. If he took of his hood, which he rarely did, his ears would be fine and human except for their more delicate and fragile almost elven look with a small tip at the end of them which rounded out nicely. He wore a blueish purple robe that was tattered and dirty, layers beginning to appear. Across his chest you caught sometimes flashes of metallic buttons, but they were hidden in the folds of fabric. He stands rather awkwardly height wise at 5'2". Not even average for a human male. Character Type:
Blood Battle MageSpecializations:
Blood Mage, Battle Mage, Arcane WarriorTalents/Spells:
Draining Aura- The battlemage thrives in the heat of combat, creating a field that drains life from nearby enemies to heal the mage for as long as the spell is active. Each time an enemy is drained, the spell consumes a small amount of the battlemage's mana. [this can still be active when blood magic is active. that's why battle mage and blood mage is such a nice combination]
Hand of Winter- The battlemage releases a burst of intense cold, damaging nearby enemies as well as freezing them unless they pass a physical resistance check, and inflicting a penalty to movement speed otherwise. [great crowd control]
Stoic- The battlemage has learned to harness pain and transform it into power, restoring mana whenever the mage suffers damage. [another spell that can activate even when they are using blood magic]
Blood Wound- The blood of all hostile targets in the area boils within their veins, inflicting severe damage. Targets stand twitching, unable to move unless they pass a physical resistance check. Creatures without blood are immune.
Blood Control- The blood mage forcibly controls the target’s blood, making the target an ally of the caster unless it passes a mental resistance check. If the target resists, it still takes great damage from the manipulation of its blood. Creatures without blood are immune.
Blood Sacrifice- The blood mage sucks the life-force from an ally, healing the caster but potentially killing the ally. This healing is not affected by the healing penalty of Blood Magic.
Combat Magic- While this mode is active, the arcane warrior channels magic inward, trading increased fatigue for an attack bonus and the ability to use Magic to determine combat damage. Aura of Might and Fade Shroud improve the effects. Additionally, regardless of whether the mode is active, an arcane warrior who has learned this spell may use the magic attribute to satisfy the strength requirement to equip higher-level weapons or armor.
Aura of Might- The arcane warrior’s prowess with Combat Magic grows, granting additional bonuses to attack, defense, and damage while in that mode.
Shimmering Shield- The arcane warrior is surrounded by a shimmering shield of energy that blocks most damage and grants large bonuses to armor and all resistances. When active, however, the Shimmering Shield consumes mana rapidly.
Fade Shroud- The arcane warrior now only partly exists in the physical realm while Combat Magic is active. Spanning the gap between the real world and the Fade grants a bonus to mana regeneration and a chance to avoid attacks.
*Note- Yes I did this the sneaky way, but this is the way I would have done it in the game as well. Instead choosing three and ranking him max in one or close to max I just gave him all 1 and I will do his point 1 by 1. Technically that's six right there. You made my job more difficult with the adding of math and giving 6 points. Therefore I did it this way.
Equipment: All explained in his appearance and other section
, bladed staff
Personality: He's only ever trusted one person in his life, but grew up a life of hiding and learning the kind of prejudice you get when you practice a kind of forbidden magic. He has a deep hatred towards Templars the most. Especially the kind that really hate apostates. He blames them for the fall of the one and only man he ever trusted. All though the Templars never killed him, he has always had the inkling feeling that they were a somewhat part of it. He's generally a calm and wise kind of person. He's rather intelligent, but also kind of sadistic. Those who fight beside him know him as a kind of magical demon. His stare rather cold, calm and collective. And yet its filled with a kind of darkness that gives people the varied impression that he could be a villain. But there are some good sides to his personality. He honors trust and values respect. Those who do get passed his usual distrust and prove themselves honored, well respected, and trustworthy tend to have a grand relationship and friendship with him. Appearing rather calm and aloof, but at the same time cautious Vishion is a grand kind of warrior and friend.
Backstory: Father was an apostate mage. Mother was an elven whore. Raised in a brothel for only three years. Father came back to get nookie, instead he got a baby. The man seemed uninterested until the babe showed promise to magic. Stolen by the cover of the night by his pimp father. He was taught many things by his father, apostate tricks and ways to hide. At fourteen his father was killed and he was alone.
Other: I wanted to say that Vishion is one of the mages that sits very close to the Fade. Now I know that people who take um...what it is called Lythium or something like that can have Fade experiences. Well Vishion naturally has a closer connection. One being a mage and two almost experience strange Fade like moments. I think Vishion is Dragon Ages first mage with epilepsy, which gives him a weakness and an advantage to being a mage.
About Vishions clothes. He doesn't wear the common robe like all mages. Actually it looks like a robe, but it isn't. When you initially you see him like this
however, its a bit of a false perception. Vishion actually wears a pair of leather pants underneath his robe, which is more like a military style jacket. Instead of having a slit in the front however, it has a slit on the side. It has enough extra fabric though that it hides the three military style buttons pinning the jacket robe together. Kind of like a military trench coat cloak thing. He wears a pair of knee high leather boots with knee guards on them. And he wears a black cotton shirt underneath his robe.
Vishion marks himself in battle with battle paint you can check it out on his appearance.
