: BattlemagePhysical Appearance
: It is clear that Azimuth is not used to strenuous, outdoor physical activites; he is not particularly muscled, has a little bit of fat and his skin is rather light, though not pale. Apart from that, he looks like a regular elf, with pointy ears, a long face and blue eyes. However, unlike many elves, he is rather tall, even for human standards. The clothes he wears are pretty plain and not exceptionally interesting, as he wears the characteristic blue robe of the Tower of Magi. He also wears a ring with a red unidentified gem, which is the only remnant he has of his parents.Background/Profession
: Having been abandoned by his parents in the forest when he was still a baby, carrying only a ring with a red gem, this foundling was found by a group of magicians from the Tower of Magi. There, he was raised as a magician. He was named Azimuth, for it was customary for younglings found by the magicians of the Tower to be given names which found their origins in scientific terminology. Not having all too much to do, he heavily focused on his studies of natural sciences and magic. He's fully aware of the negative impact the magic has on his body, but as he was born and raised in the Tower of Magi, he doesn't really know better than this life. Besides, he sees the Tower as his home and the inhabitants as his family. He wouldn't have it any other way. Also, he secretly hopes his magical endeavours will eventually somehow lead him to his biological parents. He got this belief at a very young age, though he doesn't know where it came from, and has never since shared it with anyone, feeling it might ruin what he has come to see as a prophecy.
Though he is still young according to elfern standards, he has spend every year of his life studying hard. It's difficult work, but he doesn't mind, as he actually enjoys studying. In fact, he hardly ever leaves the Tower and has never traveled far from it, for the farther he traveled, the more homesick he got and the badlier he wanted to return to the certainty of his studies. That's why his magical capabilities are above standard for someone his age, although they are very minor compared to those of some of the elderly mages living in the Tower of Magi. Due to his rapid learning, his friends gave him the nickname Zenith
a long time ago, for he used to rise above most of them, although by now he has made new ones far more powerful than himself. Nobody except for his best friend is still aware of this old nickname and even he seems to have forgotten about it. Lately he decided to spend some of his spare time on training in swordmanship, for he did not want to fully rely on magic in case something unforeseeable happened. Although he has slowly been improving, he's still not capable of defeating even the weakest goblin without the help of his magic. This partially has to do with the negative impact the magic has on his body, as well as his lack of natural gracefulness and talent for swordfighting.Personality
: Azimuth likes to think a lot. This helps him with his studies, but is also his biggest downfall. He tends to drift away, even at times when he has to pay attention, and he tends to overcomplicate and -analyze things. Apart from that, he is what some people like to call "a little selfish". It's not that he doesn't care about other people or that he ruins the environment he lives in, but he doesn't make an all too active attempt to improve it either. That being said, he would not intentionally hurt anyone or get in anyone's way, especially when it concerns a friend. He is aware of this slight selfishness, but thinks it wouldn't be so bad if people could take care of themselves. He thinks this may be caused by his being alone often, not having any family apart from his fosters, despite his seeing the inhabitans of the Tower as family members, but believes he may have been overanalyzing that as well. Also, having been raised amidst people from all races, he doesn't have any prejudice against any of them and is not burdened by resentment of them. The Tower of Magi, its inhabitants and the red ring he was found with are the things he holds most dear to him and he would risk anything to protects those, even his life, as those are the only certainties he has about his otherwise uncertain past. He has trouble dealing with this uncertainty and often resorts to the sureness of his studies to take his mind off things.Unique talent
: Having studied his entire life, he knows a lot about the world he lives in; from the laws even nature has to abide to what kind of creatures live in this world, athough he's mainly interested in their intelligence, lifestyles abd how to defeat those creatures in combat rather than how their biology works. He's often applauded due to his broad spectrum of interests. Also, in order to help him with his swordfighting, he has learned how to enchant his weapons, a skill only few are interested in learning, for magicians generally prefer to fight with only their magic rather than physical weapons.Other
: This character actually resembles myself in various ways - with a few exceptions of course; for instance, I was raised by my biological parents, unlike Azimuth. Some personality traits were made up as well in order to fit the backstory. As for his name, refer to this picture for its meaning
Also, as is clearly visible on the picture, the zenith is the point in the sky directly above your head, thus higher than any other point.
