We will begin with this tale from the beginning. A little story for all of us to read. If you have the time, look and see, and know that this story has space for you too.
It started with the Aerta College. Archmage Aaron, a Naersan Human, is waiting for the new Initiates of the year. These Initiates are a strange bunch; so many, but we will speak about only a few.
The first you should know is Rendar Gulch, the first to apply and built to last. A Naersan Human, He is of the Clima mageblood, specializing in Electromancy. He’s a strong young man and a skilled swordsman, with the dream to one day become part of the Empire’s Elite Guard. He sought the Aerta College to better understand and control his power, and within time, he had the unfortunate experience to show his power. It was a week after he had arrived at the Aerta College, he returned to his home to visits his ill father. It was there that his family was attacked by bandits, with his father and brother dead. Rage consumed him, and he lay to waste the bandits, and returned to the College bitter and resentful. Time will tell if Rendar can make peace with himself, or if he would allow his inability to save his family to make him take power, no matter the price.
The next you should know is Pylia Keltafer, a Naersan Human. Raised in a temple, Pylia is a noble healer of the Lux Mageblood, specializing in Vitamancy. She was one of the first to arrive, and at the beginning she was but a meek priestess. Overtime, she displayed that she is a kind-hearted person, but also one with hidden power. The first to become an apprentice of the Archmage, Pylia began to discover her latent powers, such as the power of Chanting. As she grew in power, she also grew in maturity, and built better relationships with the others. Some more than the rest. However, in accessing more power, there stirs an darkness within her that will change her forever, for better or worse.
The third character you should familiarize yourself with is Uicle the Undead. A lich who has the power of the Obligatio (Binding) Mageblood, he specializes in Necromancy and the power to give life to the unloving. An old servant of the god of Aarem, Uicle was originally a Yasomerian human, but due to the nature of his contract with Aarem, he has lived longer than most of the Initiates. He has lived a long life of evil and vice, with motives as dark and unknown as his origins. Recently, however, there has been a change. Uicle has died. But death would not accept him; he would not get such a mercy. Instead, the gods saw fit to reincarnate him, forcing him into the body of a Hydromancer. Now he must serve the gods in this new body, using a power he has no training in and worse: another conscience that doesn’t know when to shut the hell up.
Two other characters you need to know are my characters. The first is Karnage Urabrask Vorinclex; an orc. He was from a time long before the others, nearly three hundred years old. Not that he knows that; for you see, when he discovered his Obligatio Mageblood, he was slanted towards Demonancy. During the same day, he was possessed by the first demon he summoned, and fell into an otherworld known as the Ravine of Demons. There he lived out the rest of his days, content with his life, forging and making weapons, armors, and other things that interested him for over three hundred years. At least, until he returned to the surface. The world had changed since then, with his clan long gone and world moving on without him. Curious of this new world, Karnage embarked to see it, first starting with Aerta College…
The second of my characters is Lucilia Aeris Riovas, a human-turned-vampire. She was once a student of the Aerta College and a daughter of an Herbalist and an Alchemist. One day however, she was attacked and turned into a vampire. Unknowingly, while struggling with the curse of vampirism, she killed her remaining family. When Lucilia recovered from the truma, she brewed a medicine to forget and implanted false memories in their place. Since then, she has been living as a skilled Herbalist and Alchemist of the Natura Mageblood, with the power of plants and their related kind.
