Half-Elf Mage/Cleric - Follower of Adoy
Solarion Greyfeather has no recollection of his past prior to standing before the temple of magic. He knows those within the temple as brother or sister, but otherwise he has no family that he can speak of. It’s almost as if his life began at the tender age of eight, but he’s not tried to look deeper into the past. His name denotes an ancient bloodline of a noble house, but how he came by the name is a mystery to him. He knows very little about the Greyfeathers but what he does know is that they are human and not keen on any of the other races.
The temple of magic is comprised of only half-elves who devote themselves to magic and the god Adoy, thus creating an order of cleric/mages who secret themselves away from larger society. The temple is located in the center of a large vale, surrounded on all sides by some form of barrier that keeps people from finding it.
The temple was an ancient ruin before it was found and then restored through hundreds of years of hard work and magic. Now it’s a site where works both divine and magic come together to build something of a sanctuary for those who would otherwise be found different in society. Here half-elves are the norm, and everyone else is different.
The teachings of the temple emphasize that magic is neither good nor evil. People are the ones who must deal with the duality of good and evil. Spreading the wonder of magic is their aim, but they also seek to protect the magic from those who would only spread the fear of magic. That is the core belief of the temple. Magic is and will never be anything other than a tool. It’s the hand that wields the tool must deal with consequences of using it.
Solarion is known as a trickster and as a child was forever getting into trouble for cause a raucous with his fellow acolytes. He’s daring and witty which are both qualities that are good and bad for a young magic-user, and he often fails to admit when he’s defeated. Behind his exuberance there is a fierce competitive spirit that hates to lose or come in second.
One of his favorite things to do is duel with other spellcasters, which is a common occurrence at the temple of magic. The purpose was to teach the acolytes that they must be both the sword and the shield, and when to use them. Solarion enjoyed using magics that were not as straight forward as a simple magic missile, preferring to outwit his opponent. That is not to say he’s afraid to deal damage, only that he enjoys thinking outside the box when it comes to causing it.
Due to his competitive nature, he’s managed to ignite more than one fierce rivalry with his fellow acolytes. This rivalry runs deep and the need to be not just accepted but revered fuels the desires of most of the other acolytes.
