Application! Let me know if it needs tweaks.
Name: Lorenzo Vorgotta
Description: Often cloaked in a brown travelling cloak with a black trim, Lorenzo is hard to spot in a crowd. His hair is jet black and covers his right eye. This is because, due to his 'magic' the pupil became a slit and the iris turned red. Beneath his cloak he carries a sabre as a primary weapon, and a kukri knife as a secondary.
Personality: For the most part he is calm and collected, and focuses on the task at hand. His mind quickly calculates a strategy before any situation. However, if his 'magic' begins to arouse, he becomes more chaotic and wild. While it affects him, it never takes over entirely, preventing his emotions from causing him to lose a fight.
Backstory: The Vorgotta family had a long history of assassination and espionage. He never knew or was told about his mother. From a young age, his father trained Lorenzo to be his successor as they travelled the land as his father completed... tasks. A few years prior to today, his father began to show signs of ageing, and Lorenzo took upon his first task, unaided. The target was a fire elemental, who had been burning the crops of a small, isolated village near the Teonella border. The residents would pay well for his demise. Lorenzo tracked down the fire elemental, and launched an attack while resting in it's passive form. The fight was brief, and ended with Lorenzo striking down the elemental before it could change into it's active form. Something was... odd, about this elemental. It didn't seem sane, and fought wildly and randomly. As the elemental fell, a strange, dark magic leapt from it, ran down Lorenzo's blade and buried into his hand. After some research, he found similarities between what he'd seen and an old curse that drove the victim mad, and jumped to a nearby person when the victim died.
Magic: (Optional) The curse Lorenzo obtained had become weak over time, and so far hasn't affected him mentally. However, when it latched to him it brought some of the fire element's spirit with it. Over time Lorenzo became able to use very basic pyromancy in his right hand, where the curse entered, and is able to engulf his fist in flames... most of the time. It remains rather unreliable.
Other: In his travellers, he keeps his eyes open for any history of his family, or even remaining members. Including his unknown mother. Flight of the Silverbird is one of my many favourites
