Character's Name: Bartiimaeus Montagne
Current residence: Based in Stormwind, but can rarely be found there.
Background: When Bartiimaeus was only fifteen years old, he came to the Violet Citadel to meet his fortune. He was promptly stepped on by a rogue fire giant. After spending a week in the infirmary, he managed to impress the tutors at his interviews and was instantly accepted. He was noted as being headstrong, sarcastic, and highly intelligent, although he was also noted as initiating many hair-brained schemes, most notably an incident wherein his entire class was chased and nearly flambéed by a dragon. When he was twenty-five, his parents were tragically killed by a band of trolls. Bartiimaeus tried to fight the trolls responsible on his own. Not being skilled enough to defeat them, he attempted to summon a dark demon of the void named Jhomrath, who would exact revenge upon his foes.
Bartiimaeus was not powerful enough to control the demon, and suffered great pain and misery at it's hands. He was aged prematurely, gaining grey streaks in his black hair, and was tortured beyond belief. Barely managing to dismiss the demon, he lay near death. But a greater destiny was in store for him than this paltry death.
A group of warlocks who based themselves in Stormwind accepted Bartiimaeus into their ranks. They taught the young wizard how to properly summon demons, and bind them to his will. Eventually, he summoned his first companion: the imp known as Jakgup. With the aid of his new-found ally, he came to Northshire Abbey to aid the Alliance militia.
Over the years, Bartiimaeus became a skilled warlock and a mighty hero for the Alliance. Other demons joined his ranks: the hardy Mezzdok, the beautiful and deadly Nazrida, and the loyal fel-hound Drooghun being among them. Unusually, Bartiimaeus treated his demonic servants as friends and allies as opposed to slaves. More unusually, this has been reciprocated to some degree (though quite often he will end up in heated argument with one if not several of his demonic allies).
A few months ago, Bartiimaeus' brother Velmont managed to send a letter describing the plight of their home nation of Gilneas. Velmont, who until this point had been a foppish noble, now found himself fighting against the Worgen and the Horde. At some point, he himself became a worgen, bolstering his strength and skill immensely. He now serves the Alliance as a rogue under the code-name of Lazarwuulf. Bartiimaeus occasionally supports his now-lupine brother using both his hard-won money and his own tailoring skills.
Bartiimaeus has a dour and serious demeanor which belays his playful and sarcastic inner nature. Despite his Gilnean roots, his accent matches that of the residents of Southern Azeroth. Despite being a warlock, he is known as a compassionate individual who generally tries to aid others. His outgoing and friendly nature has allowed him to join the not-so-prestigious guild known only as the 'Free Radicals', a bunch of fairly laid-back heroes whose only known goal is to save those in distress, provided those in distress are screaming bloody murder and are at most fifty feet away. In his free time, Bartiimaeus enjoys poring over Azerothian history and working part-time as a tailor.
