Bio:

Aetherius was born to a family of innkeepers and his gift did not seem to manifest until his 7th birthday when he was struck by a bolt of lightning. The lightning left him badly scarred down his right hand side, disfiguring his face and blinding his right eye. It also left him with diminished motor skills in his right leg, giving him a pronounced limp.

He was eventually discovered by a Mercere mage, who was checking in on members of the Mercere bloodline.

He studied alongside Ellinor, he to be a magus and she to be a redcap (though there is little distinction amongst Merecere). He has been travelling to covenant to covenant before settling in Golemsberg at the request of his parens (grooming him to look after Ellinor’s magic items when the parens is no longer able to).

He has brought his lab assistant Gregor with him and now occupies one of the highest towers in the covenant. He is very reclusive and focused very much on his work.
