Vicky started out early when Eden first came on the scene. She began training in Fire magic, but added Earth Magic to her arsenal when she had to quest alone. Over several years she has come to be the consummate Master of Fire and Earth Magic, earning herself the title of 'Volcano' (or perhaps that was for her temper). Her reputation for being hotblooded was reinforced when a vampire tried to suck her blood while in combat. Her volcanic hot blood seared burned him from the inside out.
Her first big break which began her fame was during her training period. One of the annual challenges was an obsticle course ringed and walled with flowing lava. Contestants were meant to traverse the maze, fighting monsters of various elements, in order to get to the prize cup. Cheeky Vicky, however, merely ran straight through all the lava walls, lifting the cup before any of the other contestants even encountered their first fight. This caused much consternation among the arcane community. No one before had ever practice or heard of Lava magic, and some viewed Vicky as a possible threat to Eden.
The mages of the fraternity convinced her tutors that she could no longer learn magic due to her volatile nature and dangerous power. Disheartened she traveled to a remote mountain tribe, situated on the side of a live volcano. There she learned from the natives how to control and use fire and earth magic to constructive ends. One of the key beings she met was the fire shaman, Ertai. He taught her of the creatures and animals that lived within flames, their lives short and vibrant. Through his guidance, she managed to learn how to summon these creatures through her magic, her favorite summon being an eternal Lava Phoenix. She learned to summon the enormous vengeful living lava phoenix, which could devastate a battlefield. This spell drains her entirely, often knocking her out but no enemy has yet been able to exploit this, as the Phoenix remains active until she awakes, at which time it reenters her body, restoring her power.
She would have been content to stay in the village, but her wanderlust took her out exploring on the very day that several of her jealous ex-classmates, now full mages, appeared at the village. They threatened to destroy the village if the chief and shaman didn't tell them where Victoria was. The chief refused outright, sparking a magic battle which all but tore the village apart. Victoria returned later that day to find all the villagers slain or captured, and her great mentor Ertai dying. With his last breath he told Victoria to stay true to herself, and to seek justice.
Thus it was that Victoria returned to the Mage circle where she first studied, calling out each of the mages involved, challenging them to single combat. 1 vs the many. Laughing, they accepted, believing their combined magic could overcome her. in the arena. They were wrong. Vicky summoned the Phoenix within, pouring all her anger and vengeance into the spell. The Phoenix all but incinerated the mages, and a good portion of the arena as well. Knocked unconscious and rendered weak, she was nursed back to health over several days. The high court of the city declared the mages guilty for their crimes of genocide on the village, and decreed Victoria's actions to be the just punishment. Victoria's banishment from the circle was lifted, and she was offered a place in the circle as a mentor. She accepted, but soon grew bored of schoolteacher life, and left the circle to wander as she pleased.
Vicky's style of combat is frontline magic. While other mages like to stand afar and rain spell upon the enemy, Vicky likes to be in the fray. Her Blazing fire magic scorches a path wherever she walks, every strike carrying the burn of the flame, and the weight of the earth. When her magic is active, her hands and hair glow like flame, emanating the same heat as a furnace. She can combine her two magic specialties to conjure molten lava, either at approaching or pursuing enemies to impede them. While she is athletic and toned, and her HP is a little higher than most mages, she is still woefully weaker physically than all other classes. The strength of her strikes comes from her earth/fire enchanted spells and projectiles. Her most powerful spell is the Volcanic Phoenix (see picture),
Her reputation is chaotic good, she is very helpful to those who need it, and has been known to help young fire/earth mages with their studies. She is often hired for her magical knowledge, though because the collateral damage from her...liberal use of her skills, the quests she usually undertakes do not require subtlety. She IS however, working on greater self control. Unfortunately she has been known to accept less savory assignments which pay well. Luckily these are few and far between.
