Name: Rameil OzNova
Professions: Herbalism, Inscription
Current Home: Adventurer, but takes long breaks in Goldshire.
Brief Physical Description:
Rameil is a reasonably short 2'10" and light 39lb considering his young age.
He has a youthful face with slightly groomed jet black hair and deep amethyst eyes.
His skin is dainty with a lightly-tanned hue.
Brief Personality Description:
Though he possesses incredible intelligence, his inexperience with the world will often cause a puzzled demeanour to fall upon his face. Besides exploring and discovering, he enjoys intellectual discussion and debate which unintentionally causes him to come off as a know-it-all.
In a tight spot, he's quick to improvise and make swift decision on the best possible course of action.
When threatened or in danger, he never let's the panic get to him. Always having a calm mind in order to prevent cloudy judgement is important to him.
His lust for knowledge mixed with his young age and lack of experience with the outside world will sometimes cause him to come off as a bit juvenile. Still, many are surprised when they discover just how much knowledge this childish yet prodigal Gnome Mage has amounted.
Goals and motivations:
Rameil has dedication to one thing like no other: Knowledge.
His thirst for understanding everything magical or arcane is unrivalled,
however he does have a passion for knowing about pretty much everything else, though to a lesser extent.
With an appetite for knowing and understanding so large that a library spanning the entire Tower of Azora could no longer satisfy him after seventeen years, he ran off in search of more things to discover that could not be found in tomes or textbooks.
A typical quote from your character:
"I've read about that."
The original Kingdom of Gnomeregan before its downfall was host to Gnomes who, like many today, aspire to become inventors or engineers. Not the Azora following. They tapped into the Gnome's natural ability for harnessing archaic magics while worshipping the arcane entity Azora. Mage, Warlock, Wizard and Sorcerer gnomes alike all came together to create this following. Over time they accumulated a dense population of Gnomes including the occasional dwarf or human.
Then the Trogg invasion struck.
Gnomeregan was destroyed and its inhabitants were left without a kingdom.
The Dwarves were kind enough to offer Ironforge as a temporary refuge for the Gnomes.
The few surviving members of the Azora following declined this offer, as they did not see room for magical practitioners in a giant forge.
Alternatively, they travelled to the Elwynn Forest, a peaceful, quiet wood. There they could continue their following while indulging in their magical studies. It was far away enough from civilization to avoid interruption while close enough to Stormwind in case sudden disaster struck again. And so, the Tower of Azora was pioneered by none other than the revered illusionist, Rameil's Mother.
She met Rameil's father one day in Stormwind while shopping for supplies, a Gnome Warrior guard. They connected under the fact that they shared the trait of black sheep. When one thinks Gnome, they imagine technological scholars, not warriors or illusionists.
They married and she eventually moved into his apartment in Stormwind.
Rameil was born, and the third war was upon Azeroth. Rameil's father, a Stormwind guard, was automatically conscripted. Though he tried, he could not stop his wife signing up to fight by his side in order to ensure his safety. Still just a baby, Rameil was sent to the Tower of Azora under the care of the servants of Azora until they were to return. They did not.
The servants of Azora spent hours lecturing Rameil's arcane magic to utter perfection in order to preserve his mother's revered name, as she was a grand contributor to Azora's cause and an unmatched illusionist. They discovered Rameil was a prodigy, almost mastering spells the second time he'd cast them. In his spare time, he'd read the books in the vast library hosted by the tower. This lifestyle caused his passion for knowledge. By the age of ten, he had read every single book the library had to offer. Twice.
At the tender age of seventeen, he no longer saw fit to remain in the Tower. He wanted to experience the world for himself and understand things that could not be found in tomes. Not to mention applying his magic in real life situations.
