UserName: Closet Nerd
Character Name: Sydoras Eudora or "Syd"
Mageblood Type: Natura
Favoured Magic Class: For now, Geomancy but has the potential to be equal with Herbamancy.
Previous Magic Training: He has been at Aerta college for a year. He has not achieved skill higher than an average novice as most of the schooling was in academics rather than magic. From his father he has received some training in close combat. Mostly hand-to-hand but has dabbled in swordplay just in case.
Race: Naersan Human
This is similar to the kind of clothing he wears.
These are weapons he has based some of his work on. He is able to pull shapes like these straight from the ground as his weapons. The sword is usually light unless the earth below is very dense. The war hammer is obviously heavier, if the stone used is frail, then the head is shaped as a mallet instead of the usually more slender hammer head that is far more effective and can even bury itself into flesh if the shot is aimed well. He learned this from his father.
Short Bio: Syd's childhood was a solitary one. When he was five years of age his mother abandoned him. The final words she ever said to him was "You are a worthless, filthy mongrel! You ruined my life!" Not very reassuring, is it? Obviously he has his fair share of mental anguish due to this, but he still has yet to brutally murder random women off the street.
After she was long gone, Sydoras' father was allowed to resign from the Eanian military, of which he was an officer. He cared for his son alone in all matters. Emotional, financial, educational and of course recreational. He was forced into hard labor during nights while Sydoras slept, uneasy sleep for that matter for the first few years. During the days, Syd was trained academically and physically in the case he had to protect those he loved. This was merely play until he was eight, where it began to skip up a few notches every few days. At fourteen he began weapons training, learning every aspect of his weapons before being entrusted and entrusting himself with the devices. The training was not a horribly strict regiment and Sydoras certainly wasn't being taught yet the same discipline taught in a military setting.
The two were very close as they were truly the only people they had. This made it all the more difficult when Syd's father became dreadfully ill. Sydoras was sixteen when he was told that his father had been sick for a very long time but sucked it up so he could provide for his son. He asked Syd to work, so they could continue to afford food and lodging. He worked hard and dutifully for his dear father.
Over a year ago, his father had gotten better, to the point where he no longer needed support. They had until now ignored how Sydoras had sprung a boulder in the middle of their neighbor's house a month after getting his first job. Now that he was no longer required to support the two of them, he was allowed to apply for the Aerta College of Magics, something he had been wanting to do for a long time since the little accident.
When Sydoras had arrived, he very quickly realized he had absolutely no experience with social settings since he was five. And even then it was rocky. Of course, he became socially awkward. He's a little better now, especially among the men, as they weren't the ones that ripped a piece of his very soul and tossed it to the curb like wadded paper. Sometimes this is what he thinks about. With the time there he had of course met a few of the students who are now blazing through their paths of accomplishment. He had a few times helped Karnage in his blacksmithing. Never did he do anything that could be done with mistakes. He was only allowed to do less than that. Similar help was made with Uicle's experiments, though they were less fiendish than before his arrival to Aerta. He has met Lucilia and has studied magic with her under the same teacher. They have personally studied Natura together a few times. They aren't chums by any means but she may be able to more easily recognize Sydoras than the others.
The most evident of the lot to Syd is Pylia Keltafer, the one of them whom he has a seemingly enormous infatuation with. Like a teenaged boy blinded by his own hormones, he has allowed his idea of her to cloud his thoughts night and day. He really hasn't made any real attempts to 'seduce' her, but has at least a few times gathered the courage to speak to her. But he is a bit of a trainwreck (whatever that word means) around her, not nearly as bad as around other women.
Recently he has grown in the social aspect, not showing so much conversational ineptitude anymore. Instead he has become more of a nervous cut-up than an overly shy fellow.
Good Attributes: He has ambition despite his hangups and a will to learn. He is a quick learner after he gets the swing of things, which for the College of Magics happens to be about now. With the amount of alone time he has been allowed, he has learned to be inventive.
Bad Attributes: A little mentally 'unstable', this isn't only bad because he can simply get better or get much, much worse. Who knows? This applies in enough facets of his life that it is more like five substantially bad attributes.
Other: I have not disclosed all about Sydoras, he has had a few more traumatizing events in childhood, hence the mental instability. He also is more complex in his personality. But you shall discover more later.
Secret Word: Tomfoolery!
