Bio:

Darek Felonius, male Chaotic (CN) Magic-User

Appearance
Darek Felonius is of mixed lineage. His father was a Thyatian soldier and his mother was a Traladaran gypsy. His is not the healthiest man, and it shows. He is prematurely aged, looking closer to his 40’s while he is yet to reach 30 years of age. He stands 5’10", not exceptionally tall, but quite lean. His light brown hair has started to grey making him look more blond. He caries a short trimmed beard in contrast to his thinning hair.

Dossier
As a child, his mother left his father to marry a Traladaran merchant. Since then, he has not used his first name—rejecting that portion of his ancestry. He does have a younger half-brother from his mother in the form of Greegan. His rejection of his mother’s heritage does not extend to his brother, and they get along quite well.

Felonius, true to Thyatian tradition was not sheared, rather he was to enlist into the Karameikan army. However, fate intervened as his parents, including his mother’s husband, was forced into service of Baron Ludwig von Hendriks by the wizard known as Bargle. All three perished on that mission. Felonius and Greegan, now orphans, were thrown into the streets of Specularum as penniless urchins.

Felonius did his best to protect his brother, but came upon an opportunity he could not afford to pass up. Working as a minor entertainer on the streets of the capital, he performed any number of sleight-of-hand illusions and tricks. A mysterious merchant, impressed by Felonius’s ability, paid for his tuition to the Great School of Magic in far off Glantri City. After forcing his brother to promise to not get in any trouble, he made his way north to study.

After graduating from the Great School, Felonius had determined to return home to find his brother. Along the way, he found himself goaded into an adventure. Travelling through the windswept steppes of Ethengar Khanate, he explored the secrets of Lion Castle—earning himself the respect of the ghost of the famed wizard Sargon. He now carries Sargon’s ring as his heir.
