Roland was born to a young couple in the city of Sunberth. His father manages a small shop that is the front for a small-time gang of thugs that would meet on the second floor. Stolen goods often flowed through the store, though that was nothing special in Sunberth. His mother didn't officially work, but she's a promiscuous sort, and Roland often wondered whether or not she didn't do a little "work" on the side. These actions were possibly confirmed with the birth of Roland's younger sister. His father would rarely look at or acknowledge his sister, except to compare her face to those of his friends, looking for the similarities that were absent from his own features.

It was in this environment that Roland spent his youth, often doing odd jobs for his father. Small things, like delivering packages or notes, or keeping watch for his father's friends as they "checked up" on the neighbors. As he grew older, however, his father found better uses for him. Roland had the quick and agile frame of his mother, not the stocky build of his father. This meant that he could better scale walls and run from trouble, and under orders from his father he often had to. His father's gang was small time, little more than thugs--but his father was ambitious.

The older Roland got, the more promising--and dangerous--the jobs he was sent on became. Once, Roland made his way up to the window of a towering structure. Within, he found not only the gold his father had hoped he would, but a large, bound book. Hoping it was worth something, he brought it with him when he left. (The weight of it nearly got him killed on the way down.) When he showed it to his father, the man flew into a rage and demanded that the boy destroy it immediately. Roland hurried to obey, leaving the shop and rushing into an alley. He wondered what had upset his father, and so before burning it he allowed himself a quick peak at what was inside. It was a tome on Flux magic, left over from the crazed wizard, Obal Causten's occupation of Sunberth years before. Curiosity overcame sensibility, and Roland could not bring himself to destroy it.

Hiding the book among his sparse belongings, he slowly read and devoured what the book could tell him. Without proper tutelage he was slow to learn, but he was determined to uncover its secrets. As he began to learn the ways of his new power, his sister began to follow the ways of his mother.His father saw this as a positive, and collected any money the young woman could bring in. Roland, seeing himself as enlightened, found it hard to live there any longer. He hatched a plan to escape with his sister, convincing her they could find a better life elsewhere.

It took years for Roland to muster together the money and supplies he figured they'd need, and even then it would be hard. By this time his sister was less optimistic. When he went to her, she refused to leave, warning that she'd tell their father if he himself tried to leave. Roland, now an adult, would not have it. He told her he would leave the next night, with or without her. And so he tried to do, but his sister was true to her word. Confronted by his father and his gang, Roland was forced to apply his Flux abilities for the first time, and with the element of surprise on his side he managed to escape.

Since then he has traveled, seeking in every city he came to someone to teach him more of the ways of magic. In Syliras he learned of the power of Reimancy, and he vowed that his next step was to be initiated. One way or another, he would convince someone to share their secrets with him.




Race • Human

Date of Birth: • Season of Fall, Day 5, 490 AV; 26 Years Old
Birthplace: • Sunberth, Region of Sylira


Appearance

Roland has the body of a sprinter: tall, lean, with long legs. He is a man who moves with purpose. Every action has a sense of graceful efficiency about it. When not moving, his body tenses up; you'll often see him rolling his shoulders or cracking his neck, nervous habits. Within his kind face and winning smile this nervous energy manifests in wild blue eyes. He usually doesn't have time to shave, so his face is usually adorned by some thin stubble. His medium-length brown hair is usually tucked behind his ears.


Personality

Roland is haunted by his past, and the mistakes he's made. His upbringing makes him nervous, paranoid, and slow to trust others. Restless in nature, he has a trouble staying in one place for too long. All that said, he does try to be a good person and can be a good friend to those he trusts. At his heart e is an idealist in search of a better life. He despises the classic vices of life, doing everything in his power to avoid them.

Of course, life being what it is, he fails. In his quest to escape his former life, he discovered and exposed himself to the thrill of magic. His curious nature naturally caught onto the idea, and after his initial awakening to that world he began to crave further study. He relentlessly denies any sort of addiction, though the Sweet Whispers occasionally snake their way into his mind.

Relationships

Non-Player Characters

Marcus Eir: Roland's father and an expert criminal. He was born and raised in Sunberth, never knowing anything but a life of crime and misfortune, and loving none beyond his family--especially his wife, Katherine. As far as Roland knows he still lives in Sunberth, scratching out a place for himself in the city's unceasing gang wars. Marcus leads a small crop of criminals in his own gang: the [name pending]. Though small-time, Marcus has always been ambitious. In his family life he was a loving husband and a controlling father. The man raised his son to be a thief and a liar, teaching him from the very beginning the only way to get anything in this life you must fight for it tooth and nail. Roland took these teachings to heart, but it earned his father no good will. Long estranged from his family, Roland hasn't seen his father in almost five years.

Katherine Eir: Mother to Roland and his half-sister Gale, Katherine Eir came to Sunberth in adolescence. Her parents, a pair of miners come to Sunberth to find work. Instead they found blades between their ribs. Katherine survived the city, coming under the wing of a young thief. Marcus plied her with trinkets and kept her warm and safe, fostering a growth love between them. Roland isn't sure if Katherine ever truly loved Marcus the way he loved her, but their marriage brought him into the world. For a time she was happy raising her child and running the store Marcus used as a front for his true trade. But eventually her love for Marcus grew cold, and she turned to another man. Gale was born not long after. Roland loves his mother dearly, and she loves both her children. Often the voice of reason in the Eir household, Katherine is a woman who has learned to make do with what the world has given her.

Gale: Katherine's illegitimate child and Roland's half-sister. With no knowledge of her true father--a secret Katherine seems willing to take to her grave--she latched on to Marcus and fought desperately for his affections. It was on that point that she and Roland split. Though Roland saw himself as her protector, she often saw him as a barrier between herself and her father's love. Despite that they remained fast friends and confidants. When she discovered his magic, Roland trusted her with the secret and his plan to escape from Sunberth forever. But in the years it took to be ready, Gale grew into a competent young woman and Marcus finally showed interest in her talents. When the time came to choose, she betrayed Roland and stayed behind in Sunberth.
