Bio:

Alaric started his life as a part of a family of wandering gypsies. He grew up learning the family trades, especially the art of fortune-telling from his grandmother. He grew especially close to her, as, according to her, Alaric reminded her of his grandfather when he was young. By puberty, Alaric started hearing stories of Demonic Pacts, and how in a gruesome turn of fate, his grandfather became a twisted thing horribly mutated in body and mind by the corrupting alien energies he wielded known as magic. The family fled from the unholy creature that he had become, never seeing him again.

Years later, his grandmother passed away, and becoming tired of the wandering life of his clan, he decided to change his destiny and adopted a life in a small community, trying to learn their ways (In truth, he was smitten by a local girl, and stayed behind to try to woo her). Soon, this small community was being raided, and many locals were disappearing. Alaric jumped at the opportunity to show this girl, Rogina how brave he was, and he joined the posse sent to the ancient ruins in the mountain to discover the fate of those kidnapped (Or, he hoped, to rescue them).

During the rescue, in the bowels of what turned out to be the chaos keep, Alaric almost passed out and had a vision. In this vision, a twisted demonic thing was seen to be sacrificing humans atop a ziggurat, and marked a child with the blood of the innocent. Alaric then imagined that he heard this twisted thing communicating with an otherworldly entity taking shape from the smoke out of braziers, barganing for his soul at the price of his grandson… Then another flash, and the smoke entity whispered into Alaric’s mind, “So it was bargained, and so you have been found, fate brought you to my keep, and fate marks you as mine.” With that, and some water splashed in his face, Alaric suddenly awoke with the knowledge of spell magic. Frightened and with a strong desire to never cast any of it, Alaric continued on.

He did eventually rescue the missing villagers (Mostly thanks to some dwarves and warriors on the team. There was another spellcaster, and she was very free with her magic, much to Alaric’s surprise), and returned to the village. Rogina seemed much more impressed with the heroic tales of Vulfoliac, the minstrel warrior. Alaric was slightly disappointed, but not much, for he did not want to damn Rogina now that he knew the truth of his family lineage (And finally understood why they never settled). Alaric now has the strong urge to leave this place and begin wandering on his own, or, perhaps with some of his new found adventuring companions…

Age: 22
Height: 6 foot 1 inch
Weight: 163 pounds
Anthropologic Ethnicity: Caucasoid
Hair: Long straight and black. Hanging loose, behind ears.
Eyes: Deep green with flecks of red, as if the irises were bleeding by pinpoints (Awoke from his demonic spell with this new color. He doesn’t realize this yet).
Skin: Sallow and pale
