Karydian, Master Sorcerer
Karydian, Master Sorcerer
In Leacianus’ east is where the Prendael river meets the Katarn sea. Scattered along the banks of the river and upon the mouth are many villages and towns that make up the “Gifted Lands” of Leacianus. It’s not entirely known why, but those born in the east seem to have a greater aptitude with caster magic than elsewhere in the High Elven kingdom. Karydian was raised in one such town: Sylfaen, the sole seaside city of Leacianus.
Sylfaen was one of the only places in Leacianus that regularly saw foreigners - though they were mostly cordoned off to the trade and harbour districts of the city. Still, it was in his youth that Karydian saw what boorish brutes foreigners could be; even with the strict laws of decency in the city that foreigners were to abide by, they still had ways of embarrassing themselves and besmirching the good name of Leacianus. So in Karydian a hatred grew for Men, Dwarves and Wood Elves. He was able to funnel this hatred into magical power, spotted with a natural talent for casting, he was emitted to the Sylfaen Sorcerer’s College when he was still a child, and raised into a powerful Watcher in the city guard. He was renowned for his brutality in dealing with foreigners, though always being sure to never cross the line.
This fearsome reputation earned him a place as a Master Sorcerer in the Leacianan military once he earned his respective credentials. He volunteered himself into the Vanguard forces of the strike team that would assault the Spetsigs through the Arcane Dome. Much to his dismay he found his squad leader to be an empathetic simpleton who employed mercy as oft as she could both upon her subordinates, and the enemy. Often Karydian would contradict her, but the hierarchy of command always ruled in his squad leaders favour. Still, he hoped at some point he might gain a chance to rise as the squad leader himself, should Cyrindeth happen to perish in battle.

- Small/Tiny - 1"/25mm diameter base or smaller (depends on the mini)
- Medium - 1"/25mm diameter base
- Large - 2"/50mm diameter base
- Huge - 3"/75mm diameter base
- Gargantuan - typically uses a 4"/100mm diameter base. If the base size is different, it will be noted above in the listing.
