and fancied up his outfit lol. I was feeling the green pop of color here.
so his name is Atin and he's an Unaspected Elemental, which basically means in order to use the magic everyone else has he needs to consume one's magic-based essence. tl;dr he's a mana vampire. not everyone enjoys the Unaspected in their world because of that, even though the most frequent way they feed nowadays is to drink synthetic mana, made available at all because of Sebok's experimentation facility in Nox Lumina (the mage's refuge city).
he wears many hats so to speak. he's the head librarian at the Sarcian Academic Quarter, hired by Verus (it's a bit of a story lol), he's an enchanter of goods (and people), he collects and sells artifacts on the dark market (his greatest fascination, besides books), and he's one of several recurring patrons of the Skyset Knights' services (since he cannot do combat magicks himself).
he's also the physical embodiment of these two sentiments lol:
it's difficult sometimes to describe the characters' personalities fully without seeing them in action so suffice it to say 'he's a fun guy'. lol
