Third Circle Mage
Physical AppearanceTall with graying hair, slightly wizened face.
Usually wears long flowing robes befitting his station as a wizard.
Personality and interestsEnanth is usually calm and collected, possessing an understanding of people. More than well aware of the potential for disaster in concerns to magic and applications of magic, Enanth usually remains reserved until it is necessary to cast magic. Unlike most mages, he does not believe that magic is a means to power but merely a tool that is neither good nor evil. This view extends to the Necromancy school of magic.
In his interests, he enjoys a great deal of different literature of different origins, from the somber and long-winded odes and poems of the dwarven authors to the beautiful, yet precise stories of the elves. For it is true that power can be found in words, and words are the songs of the individual.
When it comes to teaching magic, he is rather patient and forward thinking. He continues to seek potential, to groom people for greatness that he sees in so many.
HistoryBorn in Haven in -78 YSTR, Enanth Stormcrow was born into a turbulent time. The Verden Kingdom had, more than once, threatened to wage war upon the kingdom of Dalen. In his time, it was no different. It was not until he had fully graduated and entered into service of the Circle of Mages as a Fifth Circle Mage that the true repercussions of misused magic was witnessed. The terror raised by the infamous Galathus Kelmoran had brought an end to whatever peace could be had by peaceful words.
When the inner circle began to divide itself between wielding power for the greater good and wielding it for personal gains, Enanth sided with the greater good.
Eventually, powermongers were expelled from the Circle and order restored amongst the mages. But with the war between the two kingdoms, Enanth, now matured with age, knowledge, and experience, fears once more that destruction of knowledge will happen and the perversion of power.
Enanth has long been a man suited for open pastures and was often found exactly there in his travels. Often called during his adventures as the Wise One, he would sit writing in his journals as other adventurous individuals came through. His advice was often insightful, his magic swift against those who did not like him enough. Across much of young Verden he did travel, though it is not what it was now. The Wise One was also found in some tales of this time, and of course what he chooses to tell, to be active in many turbulent areas. Some tales say he was the one who who brokered a deal between two faeries that saved Bramblewood Forest. He himself has described his fight with the dragon Minniuk, a battle that still leaves its scar upon the Dalen Alps forever smoldering. Many of the tales are exaggerated until his admission into the Fourth Circle. His quick rise to rank was due to his knowledge and experience, coupled with the harsh training of magic. His admission into the Circle only swelled the vast knowledge of Dalen itself. He himself sought after the oldest knowledges and the recent renaissance of magical thinking seemed to be success, yet the mages all say he seems to hold back much more.
Enanth knows exactly what they suspect. He is a wizard whose true training was in the Aeran methods. And they would be correct. He witnessed the vast power of Galathus Kelmoran, Dread Lord Mal Kelmoran himself, grow out of control. And like him, the limitless potential awaits those who know the older magics. Enanth however, chose not to contest the lich. Instead, he focused on keeping Dalen from erupting into civil war as the Verden Inquisition finally dispatched Kelmoran.
His magic is well known as an abjuer, skill devised from the Mage War and honed by constant reflexes. During the skirmish at Haven, Verden battle clerics found much of their spells dissipated. Enanth proved his worth as a battle mage many a time afterwards. Though strong in martial prowess, Verden soldiers were forced to retreat by unopposed spells raining upon. Though battle was never his want, the many that he had changed the tale to the Wise One. Now he was a mage that was soft spoken, his glance death if you tried to make him greet it, and willing to still give that advice. It was enough to catch his ear, a month before the war's end. The stories now no longer were jovial, many people now using fable to fight. He was now a terror.
The very notion disturbed him. He refused to partake as a battle mage after the end, taking to teaching and preservation of the Dalen Archive.
Bagles, preferably with strawberry jam or with melted butter
