Ethan Fulmaria


Appearance

Race: Human.
Gender: Male.
Age: 23 years.
Birthday: 13th of Summer, 492 AV
Birthplace: Lhavit, Kalea

Appearance: Standing at 5'9", Ethan is a human male standing at average height. Slender by nature, the first thing that would stand out about Ethan is his eyes. Only small hints of colour are left within the dull orbs, fading blue never quite meeting the gaze of others. Around each of his eye sockets exist two small, criss-crossed scars, the markings rather obviously self-inflicted, thicker as they approach the eye socket and fading as they move farther away. His back is rather broad by nature, though much of the musculature that puberty had carved into his form diminished, the extent of his ability to engage in physical recreation decreasing over the years as his eyesight has continued to wane.

Carved into the young man's right forearm are ten scars, the first and closest to his elbow perfectly straight, though with each progressing marking the rigidity of the line has become compromised, with the scar closest to his wrist curving to the right side in a distinctive, 'L' shape. None of these scars have the appearance of being recent, years passing as the boy, who had since grown into a man stopped harming his own flesh. Moving lower along the young man's body one would find no abnormal, distinguishable marks, tiny scratched turned to scars and the normal progression of life caught upon his flesh. Each of Ethan's fingers is cut at the center of the fingertip, alternating in pattern between a '+' sign and a '-' sign, with each thumb left untouched.

Ethan's appearance is maintained out of necessity, his profession lending better when his physical attributes such as his hands and face are not marred due to poor hygiene. His clothes are, however, at times, inside out, with the stitches facing outward. Upon the third finger of his right hand is a ring, a small, silver bauble with an engraving that the young man has memorized, holding it dear to him for all of his life. Inscribed upon both sides of the ring is the word 'Hope', the side not touching his finger itself also engraved with the initials 'C.R.' The young man is reluctant to discuss the details regarding the ring, though he often exhibits a measure of pride for having kept it safe.


Character Concept/A Brief History

What sets Ethan apart from others is the very source of the fading colouration of his eyes. Born with cataracts in both of his eyes, his childhood was affected, for the most part, only by the need for consistent supervision. His impairment did not worsen rapidly, and for quite a long time Ethan was able to live a relatively normal life. However, by the age of fourteen, this was no longer the case. Just weeks after the adolescent's thirteenth birthday, his condition was worsened significantly by blunt trauma when Ethan tripped and fell whilst running, a slight incline bringing the teenager to a sudden fall directly on his face. Uneven ground crushed both of his eyes, his nose shattered by the impact. Though a Healer managed to, with time, mend the cartilage of his nose, time mending it entirely, his eyes were damaged beyond repair. Though his eyes healed on the surface with time, underneath the flesh his nerves were damaged irreversibly, the light destined to gradually fade away entirely. At the age of 23, Ethan is almost completely blind, only the outlines of shapes visible to his gaze. Rarely does he open his eyes, quite unwilling to feel the mockery of the world's light shining upon his retinas, only to bring nothing in terms of colour, definition and detail to his awareness.

As Ethan's eyesight worsened, self-mutilation followed, with the boy carving marks bordering his eyes and a scar upon his arm each year, seeking in vain to mirror the perfect straightness of a line that had marred his flesh in his youth. 515 was the year he pledged to end the self-mutilation, doing so one last time in the Summer before vowing to leave the ritual behind. In the year 510 AV, Ethan happened upon a woman twenty years his elder, who engaged him at length in conversation regarding his experiences with blindness. She called herself Castelle Resai. Probed gently week after week, the woman looked to the young man, perhaps identifying with his struggle.

Though Ethan could not figure out exactly why, the woman began to teach him. First, she had instilled upon him basic knowledge of mathematics, teaching the blinded young man, among other things such as language, the riches of life beyond that of its visual splendor. Hungrily, the young man sought after knowledge as seasons passed by in a blur. Nearing the 13th year after the 500th anniversary of the Valterrian, she taught him a skill that, given time, she promised would replace such a mundane thing as sight. The discipline of Auristics was revealed to Ethan, who was, given time, registered in Lhavit as a wizard specializing in the discipline of Auristics. Excitement had overwhelmed the young man when he was promised the opportunity to live somewhat normally through the use of the magic, Ethan delving headlong into the discipline. However, the sorceress taught him, purposely, at a slow pace, warning him of the dangers of overgiving as she continued to tutor him in the craft. As the fourteenth year came to a close, the woman informed Ethan that she was to leave Lhavit, encouraging him to hone both the magic he had learned and his mind, for both in conjunction would arm him for whatever obstacle he need surmount.

As Ethan grew into adulthood and the need to provide for himself became apparent, the young man trained in the art of massage, nimble fingers easily adapting to the craft. However, it was with the practice of Auristics and the honing of the magic that Ethan grew to greater utility as a masseuse, able to, with little contribution from patronage, discern where they needed pressure to be applied and, somewhat, to what extent.

Hello there. There are a few errors that need to be handled before you can keep RPing.

  • How did Ethan learn Fratava and Nari. Both are specific region and species based languages (Svefra and Inarta respectively) and yet you have never mentioned visiting or interaction with either species at all... Ever.
  • Please Pick either Coat or Cloak. Cannot have both.
  • As a note, as you character is pretty much blind, as stated in your history. He cannot use Auristics as a way to get around being blind. Please be aware of this.

When done, please PM me by selecting the little envelope to the left.

Thank you,
Astator
