Claudius Caligula WestersonGender:
Personality: In a world of magic users and adventurers, where combat, medicine, and research all pivot around those powers that transcend human mundanity, those without such power are forced to the delegation of side characters or faceless individuals who only exist as a means of moving from point A to point B. This is an absolute fate, and it is this absolute fate that Claudius wages war on. He is an unsalvageable chuunibyou, an outspoken buffoon, and a mad scientist who has dedicated his life to turning the magical into the mundane.
Claudius believes himself to be a "protagonist", a being destined to defeat the magic-archy that he perceives the world around him to be. In the face of tyranny, he stands tall, an unbending oak to weather the storm. In interactions with others, he is recklessly ostentatious and loudmouthed, a ridiculous jester without peer who is prone to monologue at the slightest opportunity.
Viewing all others as subordinates, inferiors, lesser beings, jesters, and the like, he proclaims himself as a being of a higher standing. Even with regards to those who are objectively above him in ability, such as otherworldly monsters from a higher dimension, transcendent gods who exist outside of time, or his childhood tutor, he does not change this demeanor. For those rare individuals who either believe his words or pretend to play along though, he treats them as valued "sidekicks", though they are still of course disposable pawns. As one could imagine, he has the concept of protagonism so hammered into his soul that it cannot be divorced.
Probably great at parties.
Biography: Claudius descends from a relatively long line of wizards, but was born with a total lack of magical talent. His parents were not unreasonable people, and did not view him as lesser for this circumstance, raising him as they would any other child. The trouble came when Claudius was seven and his parents had their second child, a girl, who was blessed with an aptitude for magic at an almost absurd level. While Claudius's parents were not the type to show overt favoritism, they couldn't help but show a trace more attention to their prodigy of a daughter. This was Claudius's turning point; refusing to accept the reality around him, he proclaimed that he would overcome all magic as a concept, and become something greater.
The next decade was filled with Claudius moving to this endeavor. Neglecting his all else, shutting out all others and immersing himself in his work, he tinkered endlessly to realize his dream. His parents, not wanting to dissuade him from his passions, helped fund his projects, and every so often Claudius actually managed to churn out an invention that worked relatively well and even earned some money thanks to it. While not having the most familiar sibling relationship, he did get along rather well with the sister that had caused him all of this grief, mainly because she was just a little kid who didn't realize that her brother was a fucking weirdo.
Regardless, even this was not enough. Proclaiming that he could not stay at home forever, Claudius abandoned his family name and replaced it with a new one, "Westerson" (as well as adding a middle name for reasons unknown), before leaving home to travel the world as an adventurer, see new sights, and perfect his craft. He told his parents that when he saw them next, he would have conquered all forms of magic and slayed the Demon King.
He asked them to keep sending him money, though.
Invention God: An inventive mindset coupled with copious amounts of funds from his disdainful parents has turned Claudius into a man who can create new things with only a moment's notice. Despite not being a reincarnated individual, his creations are something that seem to violate logic. To this end, he carries various seemingly random materials on his person. His inventions are made with the concept of "replicating magic", and are nicknamed "Claudiuscraft". For instance, he possesses a "C Rank Flame Manipulation Claudiuscraft", which is a can of compressed air and a match.
Improvisation: Capability to create tales and ideas that make the Silmarillion seem tame, all in the span of a second and a half. A ridiculous existence who can weave complex narratives that not even he can follow.
Monologuing: Capacity to deliver hour-long monologues at the drop of a hat, seemingly without ever pausing to take a breath.
Other: Possesses a backpack that he has nicknamed "Dimensional Decapitator". It is actually a pocket space he bought off of an Arch-Wizard for the sake of storing all of his Claudiuscraft and related materials.
