Name: Gabriel Faus
Skills/magic/abilities: Arcane Blast-- A simple blast of magical energy. Fast and homing, but only moderately powerful. Sustaining numerous hits tends to amount to great damage, though.
Chain Lightning-- Bolts of lightning erupt from Gabriel’s fingers and he swings his arms, whipping the energy through the air at his opponent’s.
Spiritual Field-- A small field of raw energy that stops the target from moving while making them immune to all forms of injury while the field is active. When casting on enemies, the field is preceded by a bright light under the enemy’s feet. After one second, the light shoots up around them to encase and trap them.
Crushing Prison-- An advanced spell requiring some time to fully cast. Large pillars of energy stab into the ground under an opponent’s feet at wide angles. Within seconds, the pillars slam shut to pin the opponent in place and continuously stab through their body and soul with great damage.
Combat Magic-- Channeling energy throughout the body, Gabriel grants him the physical prowess to bear and wield armaments that would usually be restricted to men of much larger size. Using his magicks to supplement his physical strength, his attacks carry great power and his resilience is boosted to great heights.
Fade Shroud-- Stepping further into the fade than most waking men would dare, Gabriel channels the force of magical energies back toward the fade to be absorbed into himself, restoring lost energies with each magical attack directed toward him.
Blood Magic-- Gabriel opens a wound to begin using his own life force to wield his array of magical abilities. Gabriel’s mastery allows him to perform blood magic with even the smallest of cuts. His blood is even capable of being manipulated to attack and defend him by hardening like steel. Healing of any kind is lessened when Blood Magic is active.
Grave Robber-- Gabriel pulls the blood and life from the fallen dead, using it instead of his own life to power his abilities. Gabriel’s mastery allows him to begin using the blood of even the living to cast his magicks.
Fist of Faus-- Gabriel forms a mass of magical energy around his fist. Swinging once, a giant fist of energy shoots out and slams against an enemy. Flowing through armor to strike the opponent directly, no amount of protection could block this attack, leaving evasion as the only means of defense.
Appearance: Gabriel stands six feet and three inches tall. His golden hair is somewhat long and combed back, the bangs spiked and parted down the middle. The rest of his hair is then tied into two braids that roll down his shoulders and upper back. He has a short patch of hair on his chin that curves outward a bit. His eyes are a bright and haunting shade of emerald green, with bright edges of pink and red around his irises. A dark tattoo rests over his eyes and cheeks, trailing down from his eyes in three, thin spikes. His left ear has a small, golden ring through the lobe. His body is lean, as expected of a mage, but is surprisingly muscular and toned, hinting at great physical agility.
Gabriel’s attire is a mix of armor and robes. His torso is covered by a parted robe that is tucked down at the waist, baring his broad chest and golden, nearly hypnotic plumage underneath. His arms are covered by thick plates of steel at the shoulders, with long gauntlets of layered plates stretching from his biceps to his hands. Tipped by short but thick, sharp claws on his fingers. His waist and hips are covered by a thick band of steel laying atop a pair of plated cuisses that covers the upper half of Gabriel’s thighs. Chainmail chausses roll over his legs underneath, proceeding underneath a pair of plated greaves that cover his lower legs, but not his knees. His robe, tucked under the band at his waist, flows out over the cuisses to flow down over his upper legs like a long coat of black. The back of his robe bears the Templar Order’s flaming sword inverted. Hinting at his love to oppose the order and flip their world on their heads. His entire outfit is primarily black, with gold edges and trims. The buttons of his robe are bright red, the same color as the sharp fingertips of his gauntlets.
Starting Equipment: Shekoga-- A single-edged longsword that curves near the tip. A single ruby rests in the broad blade near the center, visible from either side. The hilt is shaped like the head of a silver wolf with the snout over the flat side of the sword‘s blade. The eye sockets hold a pair of small emeralds the same color as Gabriel’s eyes. The grip is wrapped with black silk with gold trims. The pommel is rounded and encases another bright ruby in a cage of silver. He keeps this sword sheathed by his left hip.
Kino-- A staff that Gabriel walks around with. Simple and wooden, it has no discernable enchantments and seems quite ordinary, painted bright red. Though the staff hints at no hidden power, simply by being Gabriel’s most frequently used weapon it must have some hidden use or strength.
Personality: Proud, dominating, manipulative, and just downright arrogant. His arrogance isn’t unfounded though. Gabriel is quite clever and intelligent, possessing knowledge of various subjects, including some that he really shouldn’t. His confidence is part of his charismatic visage, something he openly exploits to put others off while inspiring others still to want to follow him. A self-proclaimed king -- and would-be tyrant -- Gabriel finds most everyone in the world to be beneath him. He is very patient though, and often only listens to others to amuse himself and humor their attempts at intelligent conversation.
His outward actions hide a dark fact. His claims at great power are not just arrogance and in fact truth. Gabriel’s cruel, vicious intentions usually mean that the danger he poses is even greater than even he ever claims. Desiring control and seeking more power with every breath, he will use anyone and anything to acquire what he considers his birthright.
History: Gabriel has never been exceptional as a Grey Warden. Or really at anything throughout the entirety of his life. He was too weak in magic to ever compare to other mages. And his lack of said talents lead to further weakness as an arcane warrior when compared to true combatants. But he persevered. Deep within, something told him that he was meant for greatness. Something urged him to continue on despite the way other saw him.
Carrying little more than his family’s arcane armor and the sword passed down through the generations. Where his family had once been great and noble, he was the last that remained of his blood. But his blood was enough power to grant his every desire. When the rest of his unit was destroyed by an awakened demon, it was his blood that drew the creature’s interest. It sensed latent power just waiting to be used. It taught him of the things it could show him. Taught him that his lineage was greater than he had imagined.
The demon drew upon Gabriel’s blood, showing him just what his family had once meant to Tevinter. It showed him the power of his ancestor for whom he had been named.
