Corvus Bubon


Appearance

Race: Nuit, previously Human
Gender: Male
Age: 37
Birthday: 42, Winter, 479 AV.
Birthplace: Where were you born?
Syliras
Appearance:
Corvus stands 6' tall, though with his slouch it's more 5'6''. His face is very expressive, a charming smile, a cold dead glare, wrinkles around his mouth betraying amusement, bags under his brown eyes showing a beaten spirit. A once bronzed skin tone has turned lighter with death.

Character Concept
Corvus is a loner, largely favoring the confines of a hidden away cave to the streets of a city, unless he has need of the warm bodies that run across them. Only truly loyal to himself and his search for more power, he finds disruptions to his work or research one of the highest offenses. Though a Nuit and used to constantly decaying, He yearns for true immortality, an escape from the Nuit's need to change bodies.

Character History
When he was alive his father was a mortician, so Corvus received plenty of exposure to dead bodies as a child, and when his mother was found dead, her body having already served as a meal for the rodents, his father had him help with the preparation of her body for what was to come. Corvus earned a deep appreciation for death and the bodies of the dead on that day, as his father was an animator of sorts, and attempted Daek-nuit upon her, failing, as it was far beyond his skill.
Corvus studied under his father, learning basic Animation magic, he also began carrying out funeral proceedings, embalming more bodies than his father and taking over the business as his father spent more time buried in research over the years. Corvus had seen 27 summers before his father killed him. Corvus's father, after 14 grueling years, was finally able to succeed where his failure had cost him so dearly before; He had turned his son into a nuit, he wouldn't lose him like he had lost her.
When Corvus awoke as a nuit he was first confused, then scared, and then he was angry. He was cursed to live forever, to leave his body when it could no longer support him, would he even be himself afterwards? Corvus reached for the scalpel nearby and turned to his father, who was beaming with equal amounts of happiness and madness, and lunged forward.
Corvus left Syliras the day his father died, finding transport with a traveling caravan. He stayed with the caravan for quite some time, getting to know a few of his traveling companions well. A traveling musician by the name of Garith, taught him to blend into a crowd, and to craft some basic poisons. Corvus asked where he had learned these skills, Garith had no comment. Another member of the caravan, Marsien, was a practitioner of Malediction, she didn't want to teach Corvus Malediction so he stole one of her books while she was away from her belongings. When Marsien found that the book was missing she sought out Corvus, slapped him, then told him that if he really wanted to learn that bad she'd teach him the basics, then he'd be on his own.
He had been dead for 10 years, and in that 10 years he had not always been the most careful, his body was failing him, just as the last ones had, he needed another.
His current body came courtesy of an outlaw who had attacked the caravan, rather unsuccessfully. It's time to leave the caravan.
Corvus heads to the nuit-held Sahova, looking to apprentice under one of the Wizards there, Warick.
Corvus is not naive enough to search for a way to undo what has been done to him, however he is now seeking a truer immortality.
Corvus Bubon is the name he has taken, he does not speak his own name, or the names of his parents.
