Calanthus

Half-Elf Sorcerer

Description:
Bio:

Calanthus was a foundling. He was discovered by an elderly village couple in their fields, who took him in and raised him as their own never once suspecting what power lay within his veins. At the time of his coming of age, a terrible storm descended on the village and many houses were destroyed. Calanthus had returned to find his adopted parents trapped in their burning house while the rest of the villagers fought in vain to extinguish the flames. Overcome with desperation, Calanthus walked into the burning wreckage, and dragged the still smouldering forms of his parents out. However, his great emotional distress had awakened his long dormant power, and when he emerged from the house, he was surrounded by a magic aura. Unharmed by the fires, he now faced an even greater danger… The villagers had all seen his awakening, and they feared him; For were not all spellcasters evil villains who fed upon the young and enslaved whomever they desired? Within moments a mob had formed, bent on the destruction of Calanthus. His parents, however, had no wish to see their son burned at the stake, so they distracted the mob while Calanthus fled. Alone now, Calanthus sought the refuge of Shurwood forrest… Surely the rumour of ghosts and strangeness had some inkling of truth, and perhaps there was someone there who could help him understand his arcane bloodline, and maybe make him feel welcome again…
