Next character: Giomanach Nuada (Anthony)

Career and status:

Ever since birth, Giomanach, like his father, was magically gifted. At the age of 12, when making the crossing from The Real City to New Pavis with his father and eldest brother, they ran into a chaos gang led by a scorpion tail Broo that somehow got through the city defenses. Their attack was fierce, but Giomanach's father braced himself, and ordered Giomanach's eldest brother Niall to take Giomanach and run. Niall obeyed, but Giomanach did not. Instead the boy attempted to wrack the Broo leader with a magic spell he had seen the Pavis temple priests use on several occasions. The spell fumbled, and Giomanach felt a very unpleasant tingle run along his spine. Only seconds later, just before Giomanach collapsed with exhaustion, his father was slain.

Niall took his younger brother on the shoulder and ran for his life, while the chaotic spirits summoned by the Broo shaman howled across the desolate ruins, trying to catch up with them. At that moment a Yelorna patrol appeared, led by a radiant fighter riding a unicorn, and the Broo gang dispersed and retreated. One of the chaos spirits, hastened by the Shaman, attacked Niall, who dropped Giomanach and started howling with pain within minutes. The disease spirit had vanquished him, and if not for the Yelorna priestess who took Niall on her horse and sped for the Chalana temple, Niall would certainly have died, so potent was the spirit set on him. As it is, Niall never completely recovered. Giomanach never forgot what he saw, and is convinced he too was cursed by the evil Shaman.

As he came of age, Giomanach became a lay member in the Pavis cult, and studied hard to become a sorcerer both powerful and wise. He is on the brink of becoming an initiate, and has just about mastered the basic Pavis grimoire. He has never forgotten that a Yelorna maiden saved his life and that of his brother, and at night he still sees the vile Broo stabbing his father to death. His quest is to kill the chaotic monstrosity that killed his father, and to slay as many broo as possible while he can.

Family and connections:
Giomanach has a strong bond with his family. After the death of his father, his grandparents by his father's side died from grief. His mother, Wyndenkell, has always kept a strong spirit when with her family, caring for Niall, who suffers from violent nightmares and daytime collapses since that day in the Rubble. The entire family moved in with Wyndenkell's parents, former owners of a pottery workshop that made good money. There are no financial problems. However, sometimes at night Giomanach finds his mother weeping in solitude, and it breaks his heart. Apart from his eldest brother Niall, Giomanach has a younger brother and 2 younger sisters, maidens fair and almost at the age of betrothal. A lot of other family members reside in both The Real City and New Pavis, but are of no particular note, except his mother's junior sister Alwynn, who is an acolyte at the New Pavis Chalana Arroy temple.
