Atheresh

Atheresh

Atheresh is a Caelian, his immortal of a father was a pretender in a previous ascencion war, and worked for other pretenders in further ascencion wars. With another war imminent, half at his father's prodding and half because he couldn't stand any more of the godling's sermons about laziness and how far he had gotten at Atheresh's age, how many followers he had, how easy Atheresh has it and squanders it, he left on his own for adventure, and went to mingle with the mortals down below.

A village besieged by brigands, a woman getting beat up, a limping hen, a wolf with a broken leg… He's been busy. He's always been trying to do good because it gives him a warm tingly fuzzy feeling.

He's wandered alone for a short while until happening on a group of fellows of apparently similar enough intentions, if very dissimilar appearances and origins.

ABILITIES (80pts)

Air Mage 1

Nature Mage 3

Astral Mage 2

Flight - Atheresh can fly. Whether by wings or magic, he still needs to touch down and rest sometimes, so he can't stay airborne permanently. He cannot wear heavier than Light armor while flying, and suffers a -3d penalty to using bows from the air. Being airborne can be used to make Depth Charges from above.

Awe 2 - Mook groups attempting to attack Atheresh get a penalty to all dice pools equal to his ranks of Awe (one rank per 5 points spent). Does not affect mindless mooks like lesser undead or constructs.
