Character writeup

potential name: Azerius
themes: creation energy, epiphany, believes in the supernatural but is
not theistic, can use magic (as Eric defined earlier on) but can't
control it
age: 23 (might be changed to 19, depending on how important the character is)
personal traits: intelligent and slightly egotistical, but humble
before those who are smarter than him, and seeks knowledge.  loves to
explore on his own in caves and forests, since it gives him a feeling
of nostalgia as a child.  comes off cold to protect himself

background and introduction: Azerius is a boy who tends to excel in
everything he is passionate about, but cannot focus on anything.  The
events around him constantly affect his confidence because bad things
are happening to him, and this is shifting his view of the world, but
he has a tiny spark of hope deep inside for things to not completely
be ruined.

He is a user of "creation energy", which is roughly defined as the
ability to incite positive events and actions through his will.  At
first he does not know he has this ability, and the player will not be
shown/told this either - it will only come out through character
development.  Implementations of this idea will be the basis of his

A note: creation energy itself can be compared to good spirit spread
amongst people.  When someone is happy, they feel a flash of
inspiration and creativity, and this comes from a specific type of
energy that no one understands.  Certain people in the world know that
this energy exists, and attempt to harness it via magical means, but
no one can flat out control it (that would be plot development for his
character later on)
