Race: Breton (Reachman)
Weight: 230 lbs
Appearance: Tall, bulky and broad across the shoulders with thin lips drawn into a perminant scowl, hooked nose and beady eyes (one green, the other a blind white orb). His head is kept shaved to a fine stubble, while he sports a thick salt-and-pepper horseshoe moustache. Most distinguishing, however, are the bright blue traditional tattoos that cover the greater part of his face.
Birthsign: The Mage
Personality: One of those gruff but likeable sorts, Kurik is a man devoted to his studies, but not so focused that he forgets the plight of the little guy. He is a staunch supporter of the Empire, and will promptly drop whatever project he is working on when called apon to defend it from the hordes of evil. He doesn't show any sort of hesitation about his work, but he does hold 'renegade' Necromancers with utter contempt.
Skills: As a Necromancer, Kurik is schooled in Conjuration, Destruction and Restoration magics, as well as a decent combatant with a mace.
Motivation: A mixture of patriotism and a desire to prove the existance of decent Necromancers in the Empire.
History: Born and raised in the city of Markarth, Kurik lived in the shadows of the local Nords for most of his childhood, as most Reachmen. As the son of miners he had a slightly better start than most of his people, but still could not compare to the lowest of the Nords. During the brief reign of Madanach and his band in the Reach, his father took his family East to Whiterun, which in the end saved them from Ulfric Stormcloak's summary purging of the Reach. It was during this time that he first met one of the mages from Winterhold, and the day that he decide that the life of a mage was for him.
From that day onward he saved every septim he had to pay for spellbooks and lessons from the Jarl's court mage, until eventualy at the age of 21 he set on the wagon to Winterhold. There he began his lessons in earnest, and took an interest in the art of Necromancy under the tutilage of Phinis Gestor. At 23 he left the college briefly to combat the growing threat of Forsworn in the Reach, which gave him ample opportunity to perfect his art with the corpses of his savage kin. When the second batch of wars with the Aldmeri Dominion began, he again left the College, this time to join the Imperial Legion as a battlemage. Now a civilian once again, Kurik still seeks out ways to combat the Dominion, even if it means a volunteer asignment that will likely get him killed.
Claim to Fame: In his younger years, he aided the Jarl Igmund with the Forsworn threat in Markarth, even going as far as killing Madanach himself during a brief stay in the Cidnha Mine. Later he served proudly in the Legion as a battlemage.
Equipment: He isn't very flashy, usualy sticking to wearing the traditional robes of a Necromancer and heavy black boots, and carries a steel mace when the situation permits.
Yeah,....not my best CS.
