    Default [M] University High Life (Holey & Wanderess) OOC

    Spoiler: Imperial City 


    High in the sky over the world of Turalisj Tonash hovers a massive mote of earth, suspended in the air by a naturally occurring form of magical levistone. For a countless period of time, the land had been dormant, save for the occasional dragon or other flying creature which would use it for a lair.

    However, when the Empire came to dominate the continent of Empyrean, the growing prevalence of airship travel made it possible to finally colonize this island. The Emperor decided to make it his own home, building the Imperial Palace, and next to the palace established the Arcane University which came to dominate the higher magical education of the realm.

    As the Imperial Army also began to grow and gather on this island, the Imperial City naturally grew into existence, and it grew quickly. Before long, a sprawling metropolis dominated the island, close to the Emperor and the University, with commerce from all around the world entering and leaving by way of airship, selling all manner of goods in the massive bazaar.

    It is in this city where our story takes place. A student and a teacher, studying at the University, enter into a relationship that is considered bad taste by the Arcane community, yet not, strictly speaking, illegal.

    Evalyn Grace "Echo"
    Spoiler: E.G. 
    Spoiler: Echo 

    Age: Appears to be in her early 20's or late teens, isn't
    Race: Dark fae
    Abilities: Shadow Manipulation: includes pulling objects out of shadows and transporting short distances (magical), Psychokinesis (magical), Sword/Knife handling skills (natural), Hand to hand combat (natural), Archery (combination of magical and natural), Flight: fairy wings (magical)
    Study: Infiltrator
    Personality: Loyal and hard-working, she grew up as a girl who obeyed the rules and never caused any trouble for her Master. But she is also kind and sweet, prompting her to leave her old life behind. Evalyn is chasing the fun life that she has missed out on since she was a kid, but is careful to keep a low profile as she is a runaway. Evalyn can be very fierce and protective of herself and others when she needs to be, but for the most part is calm and nice.
    Background: Echo was her first name, or rather the name she was given by her "Master" the name she was suppose to call him and knew him by no other. She received the name "Echo" when she was only 7 years old and found wandering the forest roads by herself, void of memory and family. All she knew was that she could do these magical things with her thoughts and mind, things that twisted and manipulated the shadows and darkness around her. At first they feared the little elf-girl that played with shadows, but took her under her wing because they knew they could use someone of her abilities and with a little bit of training she could be far more useful to them as a weapon. Fashioned out of several years of hard-training and well crafted skills, the little elf-girl that could play with the things in the dark could now manipulate them and wreak a destruction and set of stealthy skills like no other. As she grew and trained, she learned more and more about the people that, though cared little about her, recognized her as an asset and need. Echo realized that the man she called "Master" was wealthy and powerful. He also doubled as a businessman of a powerful company and pulled some strings in the underground world of large mafia-like gangs and groups, sitting comfortably at the top of the hierarchy.
    He crafted her to be his perfect assassin, and after long years of hard training, 27 to be exact though she appeared to be in her teens as elves aged differently, she was sent on her first mission where she killed her first man. In the same year she was sent on at least 3 other similar missions, honing her skills with each one. Her kill rate was climbing higher and higher and she lost count after the 30's, not really wanting to keep count anymore. She wasn't informed too much about what the person did to deserve to die, only given the necessary data to locate and kill her target. Echo tried numbing herself to the pain of guilty thinking as she wondered if some of them had families, husbands, wives, and children whom the would never see again. Though she steeled herself in her appearance, with every kill she made she felt another one added to her long list of torturous voices to keep her up at night with their wailing despair for their loved ones or their lost lives, stolen from them.
    After many years of taking lives in the name of loyalty she was tasked one night with guarding a nobleman, yet unbeknownst to her, her Master had actually rented her to the nobleman for much more than body guarding. That night when he tried to take her forcefully she reacted with blunt self-defense and ended up killing the man she was hired to protect. Of course, it didn't bode well with her boss...
    Managing to slip away in the same night, Echo escaped her old life of killing when the last straw was pulled- an attempt at her last remaining piece of innocence. Though she had been living a life of blood shed for most of her life, equivalent to a human's life span, she didn't ask for the dark world given to her. And she aimed to turn her life around for the better once she ran away from her Master's wraith at her uncooperative behavior. But she'd give up her loyalty to him far quicker than she would give the last pure part to her being.
    Her old Master attempted to have her killed as payment for killing the nobleman he had called an acquaintance, but of course, every man he sent was dispatched by the sharp skills of killing he had given her. And it became harder and harder for them to track her as she went deeper and farther away from them, until she practically disappeared from them, and it was Echo's belief that they had decided not to waste resources on a hopeless cause.
    Echo managed to make her way to the Imperial City, as she desired to attend the University of Arcane Magic so she could better harness her abilities. Hoping to get herself muddled in the crowd of the different races that found a home there, she was looking for a good place to settle down and decided that blending in with everyone in the bustling city of the Imperial City would suit her best. And plus she had fallen in love with the city the first time she visited when she was younger and training to under her old Master, albeit it was for a mission but she enjoyed the massive expanse and wondrous architecture it held on it's baffling floating land.
    Attending the Arcane University as "Evalyn Grace" now, studying to be an Infiltrator, she's hoping to put her skills to better use to save lives rather than taking them.

    Varg Hewan
    Spoiler: Image 


    Age: Unknown, looks around 30
    Race: Magically enhanced human
    Abilities: Arcane Magic (all schools), Alchemy (magical), martial combat (various weapons)
    Study: War Mage
    Personality: Intelligent and slightly eccentric, Varg pretends to be far more incompetent than he actually is. In truth, he is highly calculating, being able to pinpoint suspicious behavior due to a long history of court intrigue. He is friendly and cares for his students, but can be arrogant and harsh towards his enemies.
    Background: It's unknown exactly how long Varg has been around, or even where he came from originally. He showed up a few months ago, with a certified degree signed by the Master Wizard himself, so his qualifications leave no doubt to his abilities. However, the fact that he is quite familiar with the way evil operates and the nature of the world suggests that his history is more that of action in the field rather than study and teaching in a classroom.
