29Magical Type: Wild MagicMagical Type Explanation:
Knowledge concerning this ancient magic vanished in time. For some, it could be the sign of someone using a type of magic close to the nature and Earth, to others it is the sign of someone who regressed and decided to forget his condition of man to become something else, wilder, more primitive. The truth lies in between. This magic allows its user to hold for a limited time the abilities of the animals realm. Depending of how the Mage is strong within this magic, he could wield the capacity of several animals at the same time, however this has not been seen in a while. Usually the Mage favors several animals by choice and adopt their aptitudes regularly (scent, claws, wings, far-seeing, breathing underwater, resist to thirst, starvation, agility, bear-strength, sonar... are examples).
The drawback of this type of magic, and the reason why it was less and less taught or explored, is that the Mage may end up losing his human nature to turn into the beast he liked to mimic the capacities of, making of them uncontrollable powerful mages, driven by wild instincts, eventually killing machines.
For these reasons There are no schools nor teachers/elders for this type of magic, yet it is strong in the blood and the birth.
Also, it is not possible to adopt the capacities of magical creatures (drakes etc...). On a final note, it is possible but strictly not recommended to fully turn into one animal of choice, the risk to remain under the shape of the aforementioned animal being quite important. Coming back to the human form could then be considered as an internal fight between human's Will and animal's primal instincts.Personality:
A strict and tormented childhood is at the center of John's personality. His father was strong in the Wild Magic, the stronger any have seen in a long time, and he was quickly eaten by his instincts, educating John in a sadistic and hard way. Eventually, John broke free from his Father's influence early, learning alone how to handle his life. Coming back to his family was a mistake since it is at that time he learned his Mother was long murdered by his father's hands, and he was heir of not only the Wild Magic, but also potentially of his Father's curse and fate. Since then, John is reluctant to establish bonds of friendship with other persons, and is a rather solitary mage, preferring acting in solo than in group.Description: A smoker and a drinker, John seems nevertheless to always be in control of his emotions. He is tall (6'2")and rather thin. When he makes the use of his magic, his eyes color shift to gold.Background:
John left the comfort of his home early to escape from his Father's madness. Despite the fact his Mother was too using the Wild Magic, she always seemed to be able to control it with great ease. She was a lighter example of how to wield this power, compared to the more aggressive way his Father was exhibiting.
John was on his own at 16 years old, with only rare memories of how good his Father could be, compared to what he had become. He managed to follow a normal education, working when he could to get the money that would allow him to survive and share a place to live with roommates. In the end, this was the happier moment of John's life. The fact he inherited his parents magic became truth when he turned 18 and was able to understand what his girlfriend's dog was thinking. At that particular moment, his life changed. He returned to see his family, only to learn that his Mother was in a "holiday trip" and his Father lived recluse in his manor. Truth was that John's mother was killed weeks ago by his Father during one of his access of rage, and he had hidden her corpse, buried under their house. She was not the only body buried there..a lot of people had gone missing in the last few years in the vicinity of John's birth town. Seeking his Father's advises, John was only offered the brutal truth of what he will become, and how he should follow his Father's teaching. If at the beginning John listened and agreed on learning what his Father knew, after a few weeks, John discovered what his Father had done.
"You inherited this power and my blood runs into your veins...you will become just like me. Now, either you follow me, and together we can become the rulers of this region..or you can face me and die...like my wife did."
These were the word of his Father when John confronted him with what he had discovered. The two battled and it is only because the Compass SC, who was investigating on the missing persons in the area, intervened that John was saved and his Father defeated. This was almost 10 years ago. During these years John entered the Compass SC, learned to accept his condition, his powers and searched how to use this magic in a way to prevent beasts like his Father to do harm. He left his past life behind, staying rather lonely and rarely accepting working with others, something accepted by the Agency seeing the "dangerous case" John represents. John's father is imprisoned in a special security Jail, and from time to time John visits him. Now things are changing.
