      character
      Like a bull in a china shop- an apt description all who has met Troy Pendleton will invariably come to the conclusion of. Many find it shocking to learn that Troy is the pureblood son of the Pendleton house- if anything, he acts more like a commoner than one of royal upbringing. If moods and emotions are a series of gestures strung together to form a patchwork quill of character then Troy would be a never ending firework show. Brash but vibrant, Troy is a melting pot of emotions in excess. He expresses himself to the utmost, his almost constant energy dancing across the canvas of his daily life, never dwelling on any one thing for long. For that he has been called insensitive and shallow, but in truth Troy rarely means badly towards people, even though his overwhelming personality proves a daunting task for many to handle.

      Someone once told Troy that he'd make for good entertainment, but can never be an actor. He has a poor grasp of subtleties, with a tendency to take things too far without meaning to because he doesn't know when to stop. Despite what many might think, he is capable of moments of quiet introspect, though it never lingers for too long. He wears his heart on his sleeve, all love and hate and happiness and anger blossoming in his words and actions almost violently. For that he has been called fake, an attention-whore, but Troy never cared much for the attention. He's been called enough names both to his face and behind his back to be fazed by how people judged him, since that was all they did ever since he was young. As the only pureblood son to his house, with parents who lusted for money and power, Troy has brought to the table nothing but disappointment with his insignificant minor arcana, and his indifference towards advancing his family's political standing. This was made very clear to him through long laments and self-important scorn of whatever he did. His parents, their acquaintances, his siblings, all treated him as such alike- he was the perfect screwup of a family that saw him as their puppet first before their son.

      Once upon a time, Troy would have felt inadequacy at himself. Once upon a time, Troy would have bowed to the greedy strings of the puppetmasters. But Troy lived to defy whatever expectation was forced onto him, and as he would have it he refused to live for anyone but himself. It might have seemed improbable that such a mentality could have been born from the circumstances he was thrust into, but Troy believed in fate. And as fate would have it, come what may, Troy will be there to face head on with a smile.

      unique magic
      Troy's power is an extremely circumstantial one, practically unable to stand on its own as it holds little to none offensive capability. His power passively gives him constant mental clarity, which shields him from attacks on the mind. This renders him immune to any sort of mind control or illusions.

      In addition, Troy can also generate air bubbles containing his personal magic and grant his clarity of mind to another person temporarily. However, these air bubbles are slow-moving and can be intercepted. The bubbles enters the chosen target by dissolving through exposed parts of the skin, forming a magical link between the target and Troy in the process. For as long as Troy maintains the link, the target gains immunity against mental attacks. However, this link is extremely taxing and can only be maintained on one person at a time. The bubbles otherwise hold no obvious offensive capabilities.

So begins...
