Ashenmind of Tillbrook

Description:

Standing 3’ 1”, he is short for most halflings, but what he lacks in size and strength, he gains in pure intelligence. His eyes glow a piercing light blue color. His hair is black, but usually not visible, as he constantly wears a black cloak with dark red detailing, an unnoticable difference in colour unless one really looks at it. His complexion is also quite pale, since he spends most of his time in study.

Bio:

Given Name: Milo Mellowbarrel Nickname: Ashenmind (of Tillbrook) Current Home: A lighthouse near the port of Tillbrook.

Likes:

  • Magic
  • Rings
  • Books
  • A well-cooked soup

Dislikes:

  • People
  • Corn (Its what his family used to grow)

Quirks: Uses two spellbooks, one big one to write down all details of a spell, another smaller one more of a reference book. He keeps the reference book on him at all times and keeps the main spellbook very well hidden underneath his robes.

Political Views: None

Religion: He respects Boccob as being the God of Magic, but does not have an actual deity.

History: Even as a young child, Milo was bored with his life with his family. A particularly boring set of half-lings, the Mellowbarrels lived life in the small town of Tolbrickle farming the land and selling the produce to passer-byers. Milo spent most of his time as far from his family as possible, wandering in the woods and searching for interesting objects left by travelers on the pathway. While wandering one day, Milo met an old wanderer who by nature, Milo did not like (Milo doesn’t like other people), but who he actually found interesting. The cloaked figure talked about adventures he had and the weapons he had used to get by. When Milo inquired of how a weak old man could fare in any fight, the wanderer answered the question with an example of magic, he levitated a stick up and tapped Milo on the head with it. Milo was of course irritated by such an action, but intriged at the same time. He requested that the wanderer teach him, and so the wanderer taught him a few tricks, but denied information of anything else. Milo was of course irritated yet again, what were the use of cheap tricks in this world? Milo then left home at the age of 14 in search of magic power, not even saying goodbye to his parents. He travelled for miles until he reached the town of Tillbrook, and after gathering some information, learned of an old tower on the coast where a wizard used to live. Milo travelled to the tower and found himself immersed in books and magic, and he decided to live there. He sold most of the unnessesary furniture for food and clothing and renovated the rest by hand. By the time he was 15, the renovations were finished and Milo lived alone in solitude, memorizing magic and ways to use them, paying particular attention to his favorite brand of magic: Evocation. To pay for food, Milo would often go into town and offer services, such as translating unknown languages and dealing with pests, and once, he even showcased his explosive talent for fire magic against a trio of bandits. In one encounter, a fire elemental had traveled to the material plane on accident. Confused, the elemental began to roam the land attacking farms for food, until he came to Tillbrook. Milo found himself equal in power to the elemental, and he slowly drained the elemental of his power. Milo, now that the elemental was docile, took him to his tower. The elemental, appriciative to Milo’s hospitality, taught him a few fire magics, for example how to create an eternal flame. Once the elemental had recovered, Milo, with some assistance from wizards in the nearest city, transported him back to the Astral Plane, where the elemental could get back to the Elemental plane of Fire. Since, Milo had a fascination with fire magic in particular. He thus became known as Ashenmind, as no other villager knew his true name, and he would never tell it (because he hates it). During his 2nd year at the tower he was approached by guards from the main city (Milo could never remember the names of all the cities, nor could he care) that they wished to convert Tillbrook into a port town and if they were to do that, they would require use of his tower as a lighthouse. Milo agreed, on the basis that he continued to live in the tower, and thus he converted the top to a lighthouse, with an eternal flame burning on the top of the tower. The government then sent him monthy stipens of 500 gold. His wealth amassed quickly as he continued to study. Unlike most half-lings, Milo stored his wealth and used it only when he needed to. Not until 7 years later, when he was 23, that he was approached again and, due to his magical prowess, requested to aid the king in a quest or two. Ready for adventure, he then left his home, making sure to lock it, both magically and physically, from entry, not trusting anyone around him. The lighthouse did not actually need anyone to be there, the flame atop it burnt magically. And so Ashenmind travelled to the main city in search of adventure, where he began to introduce himself as Ashenmind of Tillbrook.
