a character in “The Multiverse”, as played by Dante215

Factions, Families, Clans, and Empires

Description

Image
Race:
Human
Sub race:
Immortal
Class:
Sorcerer
Appearance:
A young man, looks about twenty years of age, he is rather slim and tall though he holds a slightly muscular build that suggests that he is stronger than his frail body suggests, his skin is rather pale. A thin face, red eyes, blond hair, a long nose and a small chin... He stands about 6'2 in height

Personality

Persona:
He is usually cheerful and friendly but those who upset him should be wear of his temper because even though he has a love of socializing he has a raging temper that may strike fear into the hearts of anyone, be it a human or god and is easily upset.
Likes:
Socializing, drinking, occasionally losing all sense of rational thought, fighting(in general, be it a sparring session or going for the kill...)
Dislikes:
People who over think things, having to think before he acts, when a rash decision gets him in trouble, when somebody says "I told you so" because of this.

Equipment

He wears long white robes that flow behind him, he is an experienced spell caster and is rather skilled with the sword in his belt should he require it's use. His robes have several enchantments upon them that allows them to harden as though they were steal plates, though they can still be pierced, it remains increasingly difficult.

Basic spells:

Fire ball:
One of the most basic spells in his arsenal, it sends a small fire ball towards his enemies, should it hit it's target it will engulf them in flames and thus create lasting damage that lasts for three turns unless put out...
1/2 turn casting, 1 turn duration, 1 turn cool down, 3 turns last time

Natures fury:
Another basic spell that involves roots coming up from the ground and entangling it's opponents, should it hit the target should be bound to the ground for 2 turns.
1/2 turn casting, 1 turn duration, 1 turn cool down, 2 turns last time

Ice shot:
The third and final basic spell within his collection, it works but cooling the air by such an amount that is freezes into a large, pointed shard of ice that moves at the speed of a bullet, puncturing anything.
1/2 turn casting, 1 turn duration, 1 turn cool down

Basic defense spells:

Immolation:
Covers the user in flames that allow him to burn other people that touch him, although he can not use it too much or else he winds up beginning to suffer from it's affects and is not advised when vsing a metal weapon as the metal will melt upon him.
1/2 turn casting, 4 turn duration(without pain) and 2 turn cool down.

Ice armor:
Creates an armor made of ice that envelops his body, acting like a hardened shell though it restricts his movement and if held too long will start to melt or it may do the opposite and begin to freeze it's user.
1/2 turn casting, 3 turn duration(without melting or freezing), 2 turn cool down.

Advanced attack spells:

Dragon breath:
Unleashes a constant stream of fire by heating up the air that comes out of the users mouth to extreme temperatures causing it to ignite. There are two main problems to this spell though, one is that the users lungs may begin to set alight should they need to inhale suddenly and the second is that it is limited to the amount of air the user can release.
no preparation, 2/3 turn duration, 2 turn cool down

Spit fire blast:
Splits a fireball into hundreds of tiny ones bombarding the enemy with a constant stream of fireballs although each one is only one hundredth as powerful as a normal fireball it's useful against an enemy that moves at high speeds, although should the character be standing still it is inaccurate as most will miss it's intended target.
1 turn prepare, 2 turn duration, 4 turn cool down.

Flame wave:
Sends a wave of fire towards it's opponents, singeing anything in it's path, the main problem is that it leaves it's user so drained of energy that he can only afford to use it as a last resort as it immobilizes him from moving for two turns. and if it misses it could prove fatal.
1 turn prepare, 1 turn cast, 1 turn duration, 2 turns immobilization and 5 turn cool down.

Ice storm:
Sends a hundreds of ice shots towards it's opponents, covering mass areas with hundreds of tiny shards of ice, the user may continue firing for two turns before his arm freezes and he can no longer use his arm for another 3 turns.
1 turn cast, 2 turn duration, 3 turn freeze and 4 turn cool down.

Natures wrath:
Hundreds of vines cover the ground, latching onto anything they can grab onto, if the opponent remains out of reach then it begins to throw objects towards them, if the opponent is in reach then however many can latch onto them do latch onto them, before trying to tear them apart. The main drawback is that these vines have a mind of their own and thus it holds a fifty percent chance to backfire upon it's user.
1 turn cast, 2 turn duration, 50% chance of back fire


Vine cage:
A continuation of natures fury, after natures fury is completed successfully one may choose to sends roots up from the ground to puncture the victim, it is hard to control where the vines go though and the other person is given ample time to prevent it...
1.5 turn cast, 1 turn duration

Intermediate defense spells:

Flame shield:
Creates a force-field of flame around the user, engulfing all who try to physically attack him in flames should they come near, enough to the flames, it also repels fire based attacks, though whilst within it he can not cast other spells until he releases it. Weak vs Water.
1 turn cast, 1 turn duration, no spell cast until deactivated

Natures protection:
A slightly modified form of Natures Fury, instead of using the roots to trap his opponents he uses them to rap himself withing them completely, thus acting as a shield, the roots stop physical attacks as well as water based attacks but are useless against everything else. Although, just as the flame shield, whilst within it he can cast no spells.
1 turn cast, 1 turn duration, no spell cast until deactivated

Summoning spells:

Bear call:
Summons a bear to fight for him, it's power is determined around the throw of the dice, 6 being the highest and 1 being the lowest, the number of turns for which the bear remains is determined by a second dice throw, it has a short summon period but a long cool down time... Its attacks are strong although it has a rather slow attack speed...
1/2 turn summon, duration depends on dice throw, cool down 5 turns

Wolf howl:
Summons a wolf to fight for him it's power is determined around the throw of the dice, 6 being the highest and 1 being the lowest, the number of turns for which the bear remains is determined by a second dice throw, it has a short summon period but a long cool down time... It attacks quickly but has a weak attack.
1/2 turn summon, duration depends on dice throw, cool down 5 turns

Traits:

The ability to talk to animals:
The name suggests exactly what this spell does, having being able to live near the druids for almost a century has granted him the ability to talk to plants and animals...

Transfer in energy:
He is able to give energy to anybody he chooses due to his ability's in magic he has mastered the use of his own energy and is even able to call upon the energy in the air and from anything living beings around him...

Tracking:
Due to years in the forests he has learned the ability to track down almost anyone, be it a human or an animal.

Survival:
Along his travels throughout the forest he had to learn basic survival skills and natural healing remedies to treat his wounds.

Enhanced strength and speed:
The long period of time which he remained within the forest had forced him to get both faster and stronger.

Hard skin:
Due to the tough and often painful surfaces he walked upon his skin was forced to both become a lot thicker and a lot stronger causing it to act as natural body armor.

Swordsmanship basic:
Due to the years he had spent in the Academy he had picked up basic swordsmanship and thus is able to produce basic thrusts with his sword.

Azures gift:
Azure granted him control over all creatures residing within the forests of which he calls home.
(still fine tuning him but this is a basic sum of his strengths and weaknesses...)

History

History:
Childhood:
He had been orphaned shortly after birth, as his mother died in child birth and his father refused to accept him. He was found by a pair of elves, nearly dead due to the fact that he had nobody to take care of him. The elves had taken him in and raised him as their own, though a slight memory of his fathers rejection of him remained forever in his memories. When the elves saw that he had potential as a spell caster they had sent him off to the academy, where he learned both the ways of the sword and the ways of magic. He was later sent off to the sorcerers tower where he found a new master lying in wait for him, ready to teach him the ways of magic. He had learned much but his master soon passed on and thus his search for a new master had begun.

Search for his next master:
He had wondered throughout the elven city, which had become very much his home over the last few years, he had found many who knew how to use magic but none who could teach him how to, he soon gave up upon the city and left for the forest, searching for somebody new to teach him the ways of magic, one that may help his power flourish and grow. For almost a year he had lived off of the plants and animals within the forest before he found his next master.

His new master:
He had come across him one day, whilst tracking his next kill. A young man stood in the middle of the forest, stroking the soft fur upon the dear. Zelf called upon his abilities as a sorcerer, sending a fireball towards the animal, the druid stopped it dead, looking towards Zelf angrily before he let out a prolonged sigh, he seemed to tap his chin thoughtfully and then looked towards Zelf.
"What would you say young man, if I said I could use someone like you," he asked, "What would you say if I said that I could teach you a new way to live..."
The druid extended his hand towards Zelf and he looked towards the druid, a bit unsure of what he meant. The druid sighed at the unspoken question upon Zelf's face.
"You will come to understand this in time, should you take my hand I shall teach you the ways of nature..." he said smiling, as he held out his hand.
Zelf took it, glad to have finally have found a new mentor, little did he know that his life was going to be changed for both the better and for the worse over the next few months.

Training along side his master:
Along side his master he had been taught the skills needed to become a druid and their core values, the main being to respect all life, no matter how insignificant. He had learned how to speak to plants and animals, how to summon them should he need them. He was taught how to draw energy out of plants and animals and how to replenish it should he need to do so... He trained beside his master for almost a century before his inevitable death.

The death of his old master and the end of his old life:
His master had become violently ill due to a strange disease of which he could find no cure. All Zelf wanted was to ease the pain and suffering of the old man, but every time he only seemed to make things worse. When his master died, he screamed out in agony, tears pouring from his eyes, he soon found himself collapsed upon the floor, smashing his fist into the ground. Azure, the goddess of nature, manifested herself before him, wiping the cheeks of her loyal servant before she let out a heavy sigh, she tilted Zelf's head towards her, looking in his eyes but only finding sorrow. She sighed and looked towards him.
"I am about to give you the chance to start again, will you accept?" she asked Zelf, holding out a hand.
Zelf looked towards the hand reluctantly, then let out a heavy sigh and nodded taking the hand.
"Then stand and hold your head high Zelf, follower and embodiment of the will of the goddess of nature, today you shall be reborn as who you were supposed to be," she lifted the man to his feat and forced him to hold his head high, Zelf would begin to become younger, until he became that of a young adult, his skin changed into a strange texture that seemed to change and morph.
"Come now mighty Zelf, we have much work to do," she said and then walked out of the door, Zelf following not far behind her.
And thus concludes the history of Zelf's rebirth and thus begins the beginning of his new life...

So begins...

zelf looked towards a young woman behind the counter. "Hey, can you hurry up and get me a drink," he shouted and the woman walked over to him.

"What would you like to drink sir?" she asked politely, Azelf turned upon her, a threatening look upon his face as though he was about to blow up at her.

"What are you doing just standing there, get me something to drink already, sheesh," he yelled as he sat there, he seemed as though any moment he was ready to beat the woman up...

The woman rushed back, giving him a large bottle of alcohol and scrambled off, the man seemed to frighten her... Azelf opened up the bottle, skulking it down before he took another look around the bar...
