Tad Rystock
« on: January 13, 2020, 03:36:40 PM »
Name: Tad Rystock
Age: 17
Gender: Male
Species: Human
Place of Birth: Tiny generic village, called Brinsley
 
House: Eruditio
Title: Student
Level: 2

Occupation/Profession:

Appearance
Hair: Medium brown, cut shaggy and erratically. He cuts it himself using mirrors because he will let nobody near him with a blade of any kind.
Eyes: Dark brown, rich with flecks of green and gold. Intelligent, watchful eyes.
Frame: Slender but muscular and deceptively strong.
Tattoos/Distinguishing Marks: A salmon tattooed on his upper right shoulder on his back.
 
Alignment: Lawful Evil
Personality: Keeps to himself, often isolates himself from others, doesn't speak up much and when he does it's in a softly spoken voice, presents as weak, mind always turning, opportunistic, ruthless.
 
Family: The youngest of four boys, his family couldn't afford to keep/feed all of them, so the two youngest were sold off to different masters. He doesn't really remember his family because he was only three years old at the time. He was taken to the closest citadel, Rystock.

History: He grew up first as a replacement child for the wife of a rich merchant who'd lost their son to illness. At first she adored him but when he was eight she could no longer look at him and her mental health derailed. The merchant apprenticed him but Tad's ability with numbers far surpassed the merchant's own. Horrified and embarrassed about being shown up in front of his customers, Tad began to experience a life of verbal abuse. His apprenticeship was renounced in favour of making him a delivery boy and one day, when given a donkey to make an extra large delivery with, Tad took what was given him and left the citadel of Rystock. Living hard initially, he used his wits to survive. He eventually learnt of the academy and thought it would be a useful skill. Upon his application, he had a good head for numbers and letters and demonstrated a knack for chemistry. He was accepted into Eruditio house.

Likes: Being overlooked and underestimated by peers, being recognised for his smarts by mentors,
Dislikes: Being the centre of attention, open and public rejection, being put on the spot
 
Character Strength: Patient, studious
Character Weakness/Flaw: Unforgiving, carries a grudge

Carried Weapons: Vials of poisons, a small knife in his sleeve cuff.
Known Magick: Tad prefers to cast acid and poison spells onto things like following a recipe, making items carry out the magic for him. It suits his style best. He's not so good with spells because he overthinks them.
