Asterope, the Thunder Witch
Human, Female, 30 years old
With an average height of about 5'6, Asterope doesn't fail to draw in gazes if only with her impressive hair length which are mostly kept tied and falling along her back. She would most often wear dresses, her clothing of choice, often along with an impressive cape or cloak. If you look close enough in her violet eyes, people say you can see lightning coursing through her iris.
Asterope is peculiar in that she almost exclusively cast Elemental magic of the Lightning or Thunder type, something which she early on felt she had a strong affinity for. As a result, her Lightning and Thunder spells tend to be extremely powerful, but in a situation where it would be useless, she is left defenseless. A double-edged sword. Elementalism
Focus: Thunder/LightningLightning Call
: The simplest of spell, left simple for the benefit of remaining malleable. Due to this she can cast it in two different ways;
: The lightning is called in one full blast towards one target.
: The lightning will hit a target at reduced power and bounce to other nearby targets.Lightning Arc
: A spell that summons forth lightning in a 180-degree arc in front of Asterope at about 5 to 10 feet of distance, meant for close quarter defense. The spell is quick and potent, for close range.Thunder Call
: A fairly powerful spell which makes Asterope focus the sky's Thunder and make it fall on a target or location of her choosing. If inside, she can instead channel it through her body, if stored within her artifact, and redirect it by aiming with her fingers.Storm Bomb
: A sphere of raging electricity will form in Asterope's palm which she can throw once it's fully stabilized. One of her two signature moves. On contact, it explodes in an impressive display of Lightning.Storm Arrow
: Her second signature move, and a spell designed by the Thunder Witch herself. She will focus Thunder magic into the form of an arrow about the length of her forearm and mimic using a bow and aim. This is her most long-range spell and has immense piercing potential but is hard to control due to the focused Lightning energy in such a small projectile. Alchemy
Focus: TransmutationFabric Shift
: The only spell Asterope mastered from another of the principles is a simple Alchemy spell to modify the composition of her own clothing and be able to changer her wardrobe to the day to day.
EquipmentAmulet of Storms
: An amulet enchanted specially for Asterope to be able to charge it with natural storms. Considering some of her spells require access to the open skies, this allows her to bring a bit of that energy with her if she was to go inside, where the sky doesn't reach. She has to manually charge it using natural storms. Asterope's Tome
: A magical Tome that Asterope uses to focus her magic through and cast her spells. It was created to specifically enhance lightning magic, being the only type of spells she uses. It also serves as a diary and spell book.
Asterope was born in Morgenröte to parents that were decent magus themselves and fervent members of the Magus Association in the city. As such, her magical potential was spotted early on and her fate was pretty much sealed at a young age. Growing up and among other learners, Asterope often came out first of her 'class' with the only thing holding her back being being unable or unwilling to use other magic than Elementalism and, even then, only using Lightning magic.
She spotted early enough her own affinity for it and decided to dedicate her whole magical prowess to it and become the best Lightning user there ever was. This little dream of hers is the closest thing to control of her own fate Asterope ever had growing up.
Tired of following into her parents' footsteps, Asterope emancipated herself by joining the Reavers of the Eon Tower to pursue another type of life than just the political ongoings of the city and the Association. Due to her obstinacy of using only Lightning magic, she quickly inherited the annoying title of "Thunder Witch" from her peers. Despite everything, she did manage to make a name for herself as a very powerful magus and Reaver.
