=Basic Information=
  
'''Name''': Odhranos, (Previously of House Carraig An Rí)
+
'''Name''': Odhranos Kerrigan (Previously of House Carraig An Rí)
  
 
'''Race''': Human
 
'''Race''': Human
  
'''Age''': 28 years last time he checked, hasn't been keeping track of time that well. The grey hair doesn't help.
+
'''Age''': 31 years old. Though the early grey hair ages him.
  
'''Physical Description''': 6'2" and built thin and lithe. Months of living hard have reduced any excess fat from his figure and instead the mage is designed with the sole purpose of survival. His clothes are simple and practical, grey unadorned robes that conceal hard-wearing armour underneath. His face is thin and lightly bristled with a dusting of stubble which, like his long hair, is a shade of brown, interspersed with strands of dusty grey, making him look a decade beyond his true age. Odhranos has eyes of slate-grey, which seem to the observer to change colour depending on his mood, from a dark flinty black to a light shining silver. These eyes are often darkened and haunted, but the reason for this, the mage is not often keen to share.
+
'''Physical Description''': At 6'2", Odhranos is a tall slender man, with a posture that belays propriety and formality, but a gentle and often smiling face that offsets this image. Regularly messy and fly-away, his once brown hair is now predominantly streaked through with strands ranging from dusky silver to pure white, lightening the overall tone of his hair, which he keeps tied into a short ponytail, or bun, depending on the activity at hand. Most curiously, the mage's eyes have undergone a change in the recent past. While the dull silvery grey remains in his left iris, it's counterpart has now taken on a curious gold sheen. A side-effect of his time spent in the Nameless Desert, some speculate. Equally curious is the [[Golden Cage of Sand|ornate golden cage]] that he keeps at his side at all times, never letting it out of sight for more than a moment. Rumour has it that it had some fault in the mage's disappearance into the desert, but why he keeps it on him now, few can say.
  
'''Personality''': "Survival demands adaptation"; a book once read. Odhranos has truly taken this saying to heart, unconsciously or consciously he adapts to his surroundings. He can be sarcastic, sly or even troublesome when treated disdainfully, but when in the company of friends, the mage cracks a little smile and a happy, amiable man is revealed. However, Odhranos holds a great pain in his heart, a longing and an absence that still wound him to this day. The mage is a man damaged and still healing, but healing he is.
+
'''Personality''': "It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance."; Ever polite and optimistic, Odhranos' first approach in most instances is that of pleasantry and warmth. Gone is the cold, blunt utilitarian exile, wandering the backroads and forests of Lithrydel; Odhranos has softened since his appointment in the Mage's Guild. Like a kindly professor, the mage is quick to offer assistance and just as often an invite for a warm cup of tea and lively discussion. Always the academic at heart, Odhranos delights in all that the arcane and esotiric has to offer, revealing an almost childlike fascination when presented with something new and unknown.
  
'''Profession''': Odhranos is a wandering mage, a traveller of roads and a seeker of fortunes. He goes where the winds take him and where the roads rise to meet his feet. The mage is constantly learning and improving and is skilled at basic fire and air magic, but he harbours the desire to someday learn the art of terramancy; feeling a great affinity for stone, for its resilience and its stoicism. (Update: Terramancy approved! :D)
+
'''Profession''': As an Arcane Steward of the Mage's Guild of Xalious, Odhranos is tasked with carrying out many of the tasks assigned for the Mage's Guild to deal with. Outside of these missions, Odhranos engages in arcane research in a variety of fields, as well as assisting the higher and lower ranked members where he is required.
  
'''Allegiances''': "Its hard to be good, when the world just wants you to be bad". Odhranos is by nature Lawfully Neutral, eking out a living away from the pressures and machinations of society, but he dreams of a better world, one where pain and suffering do not exist, where peace is upheld above all. His avoidance of others is simply due to his belief that to be a part of society is to lose his freedom and become part of the pain he fears. However, things arent as clear cut as they first seem, and the mage is every bit as tarnished as the world he wishes to fix.
+
'''Alignment''': "Take my word, I have no wish to harm you. But harm so much as a hair on those I hold important, and there isn't anywhere on this earth that can hide you from me". Though kindly and polite, Odhranos is Neutral Good by nature. He has a strong sense of morality, but when pushed far enough, a side of the Earth Mage emerges that can only be described as saurian in fury. An ancient rage, uncharacteristic of the calm terramancer; yet another mystery to have emerged with Odhranos from the desert.
  
'''Abilities''': Odhranos is skilled in the art of fire manipulation. This differs from pyromancy as it was learned from a street entertainer; Odhranos is unable to create his own flame without the crutch of a magic-focusing staff and would not shape up well to a genuine pyromancer of any caliber, so this skill is more for use as distraction or simple attack. Odh has been known to use fire as small concentrated bolts or when coupled with his staff as a leaf-bladed spear of flame.
+
'''Abilities''': Odhranos specialises in the field of terramancy, the manipulation, creation and transmutation of the elements of the earth. Ranging from lithosensory capabilities, to the usage of detailed stone surrogates; if in the presence of stone, crystal, metals or earth, Odhranos is equipped with exceeding utility and combatitive force to be reckoned with. Augmenting this ability, Odhranos' golden cage provides him with a near inexhaustible supply of sand, which can be used in a wide variety of scenarios, as the mage sees fit.
Odhranos' expertise in the art of terramancy are expanding by the day, and the crippling headaches he once received when attempting the powerful magic have begun to reduce. Odh has been known to use terramancy to propel small mud and stone projectiles, bring down cave and sewer roofs and cause pillers of stone to erupt from the earth. As of yet he has not used his abilities much in battle due to the incapacitative effects of the magic, but as his control improves, as will his usage.

'''Note''' (ooc) I understand that many prefer to learn backstory ic'ly, and i respect that greatly. Nonetheless, due to the fact that Odhranos is a new and developing character, i am trying to keep all the backstory together and having it set in digital stone helps somewhat in this endeavor. Hence why I shall stick this big '''SPOlLERS''' tag to ward off anyone who it might apply to. i may also put it in any Rp's that contain the below information, but i shall consult an admin before doing this. Have a good day!

"My name is Odhranos, and I am an exile."
 
 
 
"I was born hundreds of miles from here across the eastern sea, in an island nation called Oileán. I was born a member of the House Carraig an Rí, which in Old Oileán translates as "Stone of the King". The House serves as the right hand of the royal line of Oileán, as their stewards, lords, diplomats and generals."
 
 
 
"My father was the royal diplomat, tasked with travelling to the far-flung lengths of the Oileán kingdom, to form treaties and alliances with the many countries that bordered our lands. As his son, it was expected of me that I would follow in my father's footsteps and become the next royal diplomat, so naturally i accompanied him on all of his travels."
 
 
 
"My life was all laid out ahead of me, complete my training, succeed my father, serve my king. I fulfilled my duties like any son was expected to, in fact, I was the model of respect, politeness and duty. That was, until I met her."
 
 
 
"There's a nation of warriors, to the far south of Oileánian territory called Kayvana. Incredibly skilled warriors, they are unsurpassed in every way on the battlefield and it seemed in the negotiations room also. My father has been tasked with forming an alliance with the Kayvanians and I was accompanying him at the time. The talks went on for days, and provisions had been put in place for us to remain in Kayvana for the year. On my third day, I was wandering through the halls of the Kayvanian palace and I met Raeana for the first time"
 
 
 
"She was the most beautiful woman i had ever met, Kayvanian, with eyes like glimmering emeralds and hair like the richest red fire you've ever seen. I was utterly dumfounded by her and the future royal diplomat of Oileán was reduced to stammering and gaping. Not that that went away with time, when around Raeana, it was as if my senses, along with my vocabulary had taken their leave of me. Raeana was a member of the king's court, though how exactly she was unwilling to say, and I, being so besotted, I didnt press to ask her. A year passed and of course, like all fools do, I proposed to Raeana."
 
  
"She said yes."
 
  
"As it turned out, Raeana was more than simply any Kayvanian, even one in the king's court. She was in fact, the king's only ''daughter''. When the truth came out after the hastily organised wedding, she told me she had feared I would have been scared to get close to her had I known and we swore to keep our marriage a secret until such time as we could delicately broach the subject to our fathers."
+
*Returned from the Nameless Desert, severely incapacitated and in need of recuperation.
  
"Unfortunately, Kayvanians are not only skilled warriors, but spies too. Within a week, our little secret had reached the ear of the king and I was hauled out of bed at midnight at spear-point and brought before the king and my father, in my bedclothes. The king was furious, he had intended to marry his daughter to a wealthy Kayvanian lord, with the purpose of keeping the bloodlines strong, and he wasn't exactly keen on his only child being married to a foreigner."
 
  
"Raeana and I were separated, both physically and legally: an annulment was forced by the king's own decree and i was dragged home to Oileán in disgrace. Kayvana ceased all negotiations with Oileán and I was held solely accountable. My father could barely look at me and it wasnt long after that I was disowned by my family and exiled from my land. I went from being an opulent lordling to a mud-grubbing worm in an instant, nothing more than the clothes on my back and a small purse of silver to my name."
+
*Graduated to the rank of Arcane Steward in the Mage's Guild.
  
"The first few months were hardest, learning the ways of the streets, who to talk to, who not to talk to, who, if you looked at them, would stick a rust-encrusted blade in your stomach. I was taken in by a street entertainer, he was a firethrower, used basic magic to augment his shows. He raked in a fair amount and between his collections and my meagre and ever-diminishing purse, we got along well."
 
  
"He trained me in the basics of fire magic and in a dirty back alley was where i conjured my first fire-bolt. He was like a father to me, a kind yet grubby father to replace the high-and-mighty one that had tossed me out. I enjoyed those days. We ate okay and I began to help my master with his shows. We made a killing one festival day, but drew the attention of one too many locals. I came home that evening and found my master lying in a gutter, his throat slit and his winnings missing. I knew then that i had to leave Oileán"
+
*Left on an extended sabbatical in order to finally recover from the damage inflicted during and after the Raiez Incident.
  
"With the silver coins I had left and the clothes I had stashed away from that first day, I paid for a voyage across the Great Sea to the west. I had heard stories about Hollow, a land for new beginnings, where even the lowliest exile can make a future."
 
  
"And so i left my home, my past and my love an ocean away, and woke up on the sands of a new land and found a new home. A new future."

*Returned from sabbatical, now working in the Mage's Guild as a part-time professor and researcher.

(Pronounced O-ranos)

Basic Information

Name: Odhranos Kerrigan (Previously of House Carraig An Rí)

Race: Human

Age: 31 years old. Though the early grey hair ages him.

Physical Description: At 6'2", Odhranos is a tall slender man, with a posture that belays propriety and formality, but a gentle and often smiling face that offsets this image. Regularly messy and fly-away, his once brown hair is now predominantly streaked through with strands ranging from dusky silver to pure white, lightening the overall tone of his hair, which he keeps tied into a short ponytail, or bun, depending on the activity at hand. Most curiously, the mage's eyes have undergone a change in the recent past. While the dull silvery grey remains in his left iris, it's counterpart has now taken on a curious gold sheen. A side-effect of his time spent in the Nameless Desert, some speculate. Equally curious is the ornate golden cage that he keeps at his side at all times, never letting it out of sight for more than a moment. Rumour has it that it had some fault in the mage's disappearance into the desert, but why he keeps it on him now, few can say.

Personality: "It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance."; Ever polite and optimistic, Odhranos' first approach in most instances is that of pleasantry and warmth. Gone is the cold, blunt utilitarian exile, wandering the backroads and forests of Lithrydel; Odhranos has softened since his appointment in the Mage's Guild.
