PostSubject: Durinos Rahl - First Wizard   Tue May 11, 2010 6:14 pm



Age: 152
Gender: Male
Race: Human
Birthplace: Imperia
Skill:
Medical: With being a wizard of such great power causes some side effects that many claim not worth the power and knowledge. For those that reach a certain status in the path of wizardry there is an ailment that begins. This "disease" is a "magic-driven" tumor in the brain of the wizard. It causes random seizures of pain and amplifys emotion to great extent. Though it will not kill the wizard from its presence in the brain, it can cause the wizard to use actions that will kill him. This tumor is also the cause for the long life of wizards that reach this degree. It helps the brain regulate the body after extreme aging to stop the deteoration of organs and cells.

Attributes: By being the First Wizard, Durinos Rahl is immensely powerful. This is obviously because of his status in the Order and ability with magic. Though by being in such a position he crucially understands he must be discreet and not flaunt his powers.

Abilitys: As First Wizard he is an extremely powerful Wizard, but because of this he has his draw-backs. For example, for the life he can take with magic to counter this loss of life he can no longer digest meat. He also has the "disease" (described in the Medical section) which is an enormous handicap. The power of his magical ability's is directly tied to this tumor. This tumor as stated above amplify's emotion, if properly controlled this becomes the fuel of sorts to his power. The stronger his emotion and more energy that will be channelled into his powers. The following is a list of his ability's.

Lightning Magic {| | | | | | | |} - Durinos' most practiced and known ability is his prowess with lightning magic. This is probably because of his ability to channel great anger, and what better to unleash it then with the fury of the gods themselves? His ability's with lightning magic are however limited because of the great power and emotion they require.

Fire Magic {| | | | | | | |} - Fire magic is the more commonly used offensive magic for Durinos as it isn't as taxing as that of Lightning Magic and it is still quite effective.

Physical Magic {| | | | | | | |} - Physical magic is that of levation, telekinesis and physical influencing objects. This could range with lifting rocks and pebbles to lifting a tree out of the very ground. However, to lift something as large as a tree it would almost surely result with Durinos' passing into a "regenerative coma" of sorts, where he would be extremely vulnerable for as much as 72 hours. The same could be true if he attempted to say, throw a decent sized rock (Size of a basketball) at incredible speeds (Perhaps 90 MPH?).

Healing Magic {| | | | | | | |} - Durinos is rather mediocre at healing magic as he never devoted much time and practice to its learning. At most he could heal flesh wounds.

(All of these ability's correspond with the requirement of emotion to be used because of the tumor in his brain. The harder the magical task and energy requirements, the more emotionly strength is required among physical and mental strength as well.)

Biography:

Birth of a Master, The Story of Durinos Rahl

Born into an age where magic was widely used an accepted by many people. It was common at this time for children to be born with the gift of magic. But it was rare for them to be attuned to it before they received training from a wizard. Such was the story for a young boy named Durinos. Neither his mother or father had been wizards yet he possessed immense ability for the gift of magic. It is believed that he received the gift from his grandfather, Panos Rahl, on his father’s side. His grandfather had been a remarkable wizard in his time but after many years of service to lords in the military he died. It is unknown how he died all that is known is that he was serving as the personal bodyguard of an heir to the throne. So with the birth of Durinos Rahl and the discovery of his gift his parents were ecstatic. He was found at a young age by a very powerful wizard of the renowned First Order. He left with the wizard at the age of 8 to begin his life as an apprentice learning the ways of magic and wizardry. As was tradition upon becoming an apprentice young Durinos was assigned to the War Wizard who would be his mentor for the many years to come. His new master Clivantus Zorander was among the oldest and most respected War Wizards in the Order. The beginning of a long, hard path towards the truth of knowledge had begun for one of the most important to ever tread it…

The Simplest Rule

Durinos soon discovered the one rule to advancement in the First Order. He had surveyed Master Zorander use it many times. The simplest rule of being a War Wizard, one single word that contained the answer to hundreds of questions: “Cut”. The single word, whether it be with a sword of air cutting an enemy in half or cutting the ties of emotion to solve a problem. Whatever the issue the one word and code of War Wizard is sure to solve it. This one word may seem very simple to anyone who doesn’t fully understand what it is to be a War Wizard. To them their power is driven by emotion and need causing the words simple nature to be as complex as their emotions. This single rule was a marker to young apprentices; it showed when they had reached the level of ability to become a wizard. After several years Durinos finally perfected its meaning in his mind. He did this when he witnessed his master become First Wizard without a single objection. The previous First Wizard passed away at the age of 431 leaving several candidates for the position. Master Zorander simply walked to the body of the great wizard and removed the symbolic amulet from around his neck. He placed this amulet on his neck in front of every wizard present. He announced in a simple phrase of “I am the successor”, not a single wizard contested his statement. This made “cut” second nature to young Durinos; he had witnessed its awesome power and understood the meaning of it. He was ready to advance but found he had before he knew it. Simply by being the apprentice of the First Wizard Durinos found that he had become somewhat of an icon. He was viewed with envy by other apprentices and watched carefully by the master wizards. His abilities surpassed that of any other apprentice after only 4 years. On his twelfth birthday there was a ceremony promoting the young apprentice to a full wizard. This was but the first marker stone on the long path he had started…

The Call to Arms

Wizard Rahl of age 15, a prodigy of the Order was in for the toughest year of his life. Following a dispute with a neighboring land, the lord the Order had allied was at war. A swift invasion of thousands of enemy troops attacked the lord’s land striking deep. First Wizard Zorander sent out a memorandum that all of the rank Wizard and above were hereby called to serve in the war. He took with him a formation known as “The Fist” the 500 best wizards and mages available to attempt to turn the tide of the invasion. After a week of travel “The Fist” had reached the front lines to find a wasteland of corpses. Immediately going to work the Order showed no mercy in their relentless assault on the invaders. Young wizard Rahl learned the horror of battle but he coped with it because of one aspect of his training. Wizards 6th rule: “The only sovereign you can allow to rule you is reason.” This one simple phrase decided the fate of thousands. Its opposite led to the death of a great wizard. “Wizard's Third Rule: Passion rules reason.” This was the case that caused First Wizard Zorander’s death. Attempting to defend young wizards from an enemy master wizard he gave his life to save them. He invoked the rite of Wizards Life Fire, giving his life to save others causing massive destruction at the hands of great fireball. He incinerated the enemy wizard, his own body falling to a pile of ash on the ground. Soon afterwards the invasion was halted and the enemy pushed out of the Lord’s land.

New Age, New Leadership

With the death of First Wizard Zorander the Order now lacked a leader, but that would not last. War Wizard Ander stepped up to the task and due to the actions and abilities of young Wizard Rahl he promoted him to the status of War Wizard. Rahl was among the most powerful wizards of the time yet with such a young age. War Wizard Rahl aged and learned and grew stronger for the next 37 years. He gained power, knowledge, wisdom and respect in this time period. Then things changed and would never be the same with the death of yet another First Wizard. Wizard Ander died and left Rahl as the next First Wizard. He took up the mantle in a time of desperation and conflict with the factions of evil wizards using their abilities to harm the innocent. He led his finest wizards in war and swore an oath to destroy every single one of these monsters. This hatred spawned a bloody war that in turn would cause the creation of groups that hunt Wizards. After the brunt of the campaign was over the Order would go underground a broken and battered act of desperation of the last surviving members of the Order. First Wizard Rahl now lives to restore the Order to glory and its rightful place in the land of Olden…

I honestly think this is pretty balanced. And, it's certainly got the detail.

Gonna see what more of the community thinks.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't "special characters" considered event-only characters? I.E they are allowed to be powerful since they are barely ever used?

Well, Mack, to be fair, all you really have to do to get Jens out of the picture in practice is just cough at him or maybe toss a light object at him and he's out of the match at that point. No offense to you, Krug, but the guy seems to get beat down so much, I think it's becoming second nature.

I believe he's supposed to be really weak physically to make up for his abilities.

Not really weak, but just shite at fighting. And those abilities are very self defense orientated. His backstory would explain why he doesn't like manipulating magic.

Is that really a bad thing, Kain, m'boy?

Might be, considering we're getting hit by an endemic of sorts.

Isn't this like copied from Sword of Truth or the TV series Legend of the seeker? In that series Richard Rahl is the main protagonist who is taught by the wizard Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander. Your whole character is basicly stolen from the series.

Far from it, that was the basis of my character but its very different in many ways from the conglamorate fusion of Richard Rahl and Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander. Try reading it.

I was just claiming that it was copied, but sure it's inspired if you say so. Nothing negative , I find your character interesting.

If it were copied it would be named Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander or Richard Rahl. It is neither, I've made a conglamorate fusion of those two characters then editted to fit my own purposes and style of role-play. They're just the basis for my idea's and future plans for this character.
