Character Description and History

Although young, Onygians history is an interesting one indeed. Onygians father was an Atonomist: One who devotes their life to the scientific studies of the body. He oftentimes saw his father perform incantations, but nothing significant. It wasnt until the age of eight that Onygians apptitude for magic was noticed. His father had mistakingly left his spellbook out, and Onygian snuck into his laboratory. Shortly thereafter Onygians father returned and was surprised to find that he was reading the incantations. Realizing that his son had great potential as a mage, Onygians father enrolled him into a local magic academy. Onygian was very intelligent, but weak and unliked. His teacher refused to teach Onygian after only a few short monthes. His father; hoping his son would follow in his footsteps, turned to one of his old friends, and classmates.

Soon thereafter Onygian was off too The Deadlands to get tutiledge from his fathers old friend - Vokal, who was impressed by Onygians intelect. Unknown to Onygians father Vokal turned to the darker uses of necromancy; he no longer used his magic for studies, but for darker, more perverted uses. This did not scare Onygian, he was actually impressed by the power Vokal held. Onygian saw new uses for his magic too; death, destruction, control of the dead and many other unmentionable possibilities. Vokal taught Onygian well, he actually dropped all of his other students so that he could concentrate on Onygian and unleash his full potential. Onygian learned fast, faster than anyone Vokal had seen before. After many years Onygians father found of his sons perverted uses of magic.

His father tried to withdraw his son, but it was to late. Onygian didnt want to stop learning dark magic, he was in to deep; Vokal also vehemently refused to give up his star pupil. Vokal threatened to blackmail Onygians father should he become! involved. Onygians father knew well what the citizens of his town would do if they found out the kind of research he had been doing for the past twenty years. He couldnt afford the risk with a wife and four children. Onygians father opted to keep out of Vokals business.

The time had come for Onygian to travel to the Forest of Wayreth to take the test all young mages take. He traveled down and completed the test; however, it cost him greatly. He was left with a skelotal hand, a low whispy voice, and his skin was given the cold blue pallor of a corpse. Onygian knew little of the pacts he would be forced to make in order to study the Black Arts, but it was worth it, the power was worth it. He returned to Vokals tower to find his master dead, apparently a summoning gone wrong. It seems who or whatever killed Vokal also had the intellect to steal all his prized possesions. The only thing that Onygian found of any value was a book titled "The Book of Shadows". Among the tossed papers he also found his masters journal. Inside he read his masters plans to become a lich. He also read of how his master used his young apprentices bodys to extend his own life. This also explained that Onygian was going to be the next victim upon his return. Now Onygian travels to Palanthus to let his family know what has occured. Onygian also plans to avenge his masters death, and retrieve the lost items and valuable spellbooks. His journey is just begining...
