~"Guess you could say I really lighten up the place! Hehehehehe"~
Amon is a bit on the short side compared to an average human, standing at about five feet tall and only weighing about 110 pounds. He hasn't really done much in his life to build up any sort of muscle mass beyond walking around so he's a bit on the scrawny side, though he manages to make it look more elegant than skinny. An eye-catching feature are his amethyst gemstone like eyes which seem to sparkle if you only catch a glimpse. His forehead crystal matches the color, a round multi-faceted purple gem. A smile fits naturally across his face and is frequently seen there, complimenting his naturally friendly and personable aura. His snow white hair seems to go every which way, seemingly the only source of consistency laying in the two long strands of hair reaching down to about midneck. He nearly always wears his flower earpieces, those being the first thing he bought in Medius and a source of some pride. He tends to wear flow-ly, robe-like clothing that matches the color of his hair, it makes pulling off magic tricks easier as well as being really fun to wear. Amon’s marking are a bit unusual. They practically glow with yellow light and are connected to each other by a thin wavy line. They reside on the both sides of his hands, feet and neck: and are designed like so
Though Amon lived a rather restricted life for many of his early years, in more ways than one, he is naturally more of an extrovert than an introvert. His time in Medius has brought this facet to full force, as interacting with people as a showman of sorts is how he lives. He seems to be a perpetually cheerful sort of fellow, eager to talk to people and hear their stories. However he doesn’t seem to make much of an effort to know people much more than in passing. Amon tends not to try to know much more about a person than their name and doesn’t give out much more than that himself. He can a bit overwhelming at times, but attempts to be considerate to other people. Due to his free-form lifestyle he is nearly always willing to lend a hand to help people out, no matter how trivial the task in question is.
Amon's parents were both aristocrats living an extravagant life on Priscus , so it was no surprise that Amon was a bit spoiled for the early part of his life. Silver spoon and all that. Plus he was the ‘new baby’, although that was something that didn’t sit too well with his older brother. That was at least, until Amon discovered his element. Normally light as an element wasn’t a bad thing, but in Amon’s case he didn’t have much control over the associated element of heat that went with it, limiting him to being a glorified lightshow: much to his regal parent’s disappointment. This was a sharp contrast to his older brother’s element of fire; an element that could be both majestic and more importantly, destructive. A fact that his older, perfectionist, and somewhat envious brother, didn’t hesitate to inform him of. The two could be called rivals, but not friends.The coddling he had received in his first years had come back to bite him; not that he’d had much choice in the matter.
Despite the surrounding negativity, Amon found his element to be great fun to play with and enjoyed learning how to use it. His parents however, frowned upon this, instructing that he should focus on things that he could still be good at that would uphold the family’s dignity. Like chess or fencing, aristocrat arts. His parlor tricks wouldn’t impress anyone. The obedient son, Amon focused on these things, finding himself to be quite good at them; due to both a large amount of time being poured into them and a certain talent for it. It also contributed to him having a higher mastery of miscellaneous Vis skills than was perhaps average for a Mirage. Another source of aggravation for his older brother, who proved his superiority by means of his superior magic. This went too far on one such occasion, leaving him with a nasty burn mark on his right hand, leaving the back of right hand covered in heavy burns. Not able to rely on his parents, Amon treated the wound as best he could himself and carried on. His parents had to have seen it several times, but they never mentioned it, so Amon didn’t either. Clearly they didn’t care and Amon was sure bringing it up would only cause more trouble for himself.
Brotherly bothers aside, Amon was not strictly told that he couldn’t
practice with his Vism which was nearly as good as telling him he could. His brother’s mockeries and cruelty only spurred him efforts onward. Thus he would take any time he could squirrel away to play with his parlor tricks. His second visit with Amana was nothing remarkable; as least as far any other 18 year old getting their manifest unlocked (the most awe inspiring experience one could ever have along with the understanding of what a God-queen truly was). His manifest was something of a disappointment to his parents, not appearing as the majestic wings that was typical of his family, instead mirrors that enhanced his ability to use what was still little more than parlour tricks. Amon officially became a Vihn that day, or Mirage in human terms.
It was also the day Amon left his family. With his manifest unlocked and his title acquired, he had no compulsion, nor desire, to stay under them any longer. Amon's curiosity and desire to be free of his parent's influence drove him to find a way to Medius. Thankfully his parents kept his existence and any details about him mostly under wraps due to the fact that he was something of an embarrassment; thus he had no trouble getting past the guards at the bridge he’d used to cross. Once there, Amon found that he had a whole new world to explore and a very different one at that. The first and most notable difference to Amon was the lack of ambient Vis. Amon was aware that he would have need of money other than his Vis card so he had… ‘procured’ some things from his house and take on his trip. It wasn’t like his family needed that much tableware anyway! They were pawned off for far more than Amon expected, giving him enough cash to live on comfortably while he figured out what to do next.
While travelling in Medius Amon took advantage of the time to play with his Manifest and how he could use it. It was by accident that he discovered the offensive properties of of his manifest, though not an unhappy one, save for the innocent grass he'd scorched. In one of the first towns Amon visited he experienced something that gave him an idea on how to fix the whole ‘income’ problem. A traveling circus was in town and Amon found the whole thing to be very fun and exciting. Now he couldn’t be a circus, but a one man show was certainly within the realm of possibility. A street performer of sorts. There was a time and a place for lightshows after all. So Amon spent a bit of time thinking of ways he could perform using his magic and then tested them. Mostly by wow-ing children and such on a small scale. Then a few performances at events that were being held. A crude booth at a carnival. A show for a kid’s birthday party. He got paid for a few of these and then started performing on his own, without having to attend an event for attention. He enjoyed few things more than using his Vis, so it was the perfect job.
So he roamed about, showing off his magic and being well-received for the most part. Amon further expanded his performances by learning traditional sleight-of-hand tricks with cards and such and putting his own spin on them. His self-confidence grew, his naturally introverted side came to light. He was good at talking to people and gauging them. One might call him a natural showman. Of course Amon was not just there for fun. Making dazzling visual displays was good and all but the mark left on his pride by his brother and his parents remained. His element could be powerful even with his limits and his Manifest would allow him to prove that. Thus Amon practiced with using his Vis, both while manifested and not, in made up combat scenarios: though he had never really had a chance to use them.

Amon’s manifest state brings five round, large-platter size(1-3 ft diameter) vis constructs into existence. These appear around his head, hands, and at his feet. When manifested Amon gains the ability to levitate and fly at a rather slow late compared to most Prae. However he can ‘ride’ his Vis discs to increase his speed and give him a larger amount of overall mobility. The discs can also be used to block weak physical and magical attacks, though they break if they sustain too much damage, reducing the duration which he can stay manifested by ⅕. Furthermore they can be used as mirrors of sorts to generate, amplify, reflect, or modify, his manipulated light at a greater potency than normal. In addition this allows Amon to focus his light to the point where it create lasers out of sufficiently concentrated light.
