Character Information

Summary

A chaos mage who's seen the world and because of this takes a relatively unconventional approach to magic. Not a user of any single defined tradition, he mashes together the bits and pieces from all sorts that have stuck with him, in addition to drugs, tech, and weapons, to do his own thing. That own thing is usually using his spells to make him hopefully as good with a gun as a normal muscle.

Goals

Make enough money in the shadows to support his sister, while at the same time making sure she stays safe and out of the shadows herself (a difficult task).

Background

As a kid, his family was constantly moving around from city to city, sprawl to sprawl, country to country. Because of this, he never had a single, formal education in how to use his magic. Instead his knowledge is the result of an amalgamation of a handful of philosophies of various mentors he's practiced under, picking and choosing the bits he liked best.

Stray, as he soon became known by the contacts he met in the various cities he traveled to, found the somewhat monastic lifestyle he was used to to be quite enjoyable. He continued traveling from plex to plex when he got older, doing odd jobs in the shadows, usually dealing with magic in one way or another, to pull in just enough money to live for the month and move on to the next thing, never sticking in one city, part of one group, holding down one job, or doing one thing for him to get too attached. He'd travel mostly motivated by looking into new ways to practice magic. New techniques he liked to add to his own personal style.

His younger sister however didn't enjoy the lifestyle put upon them by their parents. One day while he was staying in Seattle, he got a call informing him that his parents had died in a car crash. He took custody of his teenage sister and wanted her to have a more stable life. He stopped moving around and found a livable apartment in Seattle so she could live in one place for more than a year, so she can actually get a half decent education, make friends etc. Without an actual resumé or much practical job experience, he found himself digging into the Seattle shadows in order to support himself and his sister, always keeping it as separate from her as possible, keeping what he does a secret, not wanting her to get tangled up in it and live a normal life.

Appearance

He's a fairly tall, lanky man. His craggy hair, untrimmed 5 o'clock shadow, permanent bags under his eyes, and small things like a loose tie and untucked shirt show someone who doesn't care for their appearance. He has a pretty laid back posture.

Clothing

Tends to wear a basic grey-scale Mortimer of London, though it looks like he was never shown "how" to wear it.
