Name: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Title(s): Prodigy of Russia, Master of Ballets
Birth and Death Dates: 7th of May 1840 - 6th November 1893
Alignment: True Neutral
Catalyst: Original Manuscript of 1812 Overture
Personality: Summoned as he is, Tchaikovsky is not the most pleased with his appearance but he believes he deserves it for how he treated his life. Although in life he was plagued by his own demons, now he appears optimistic and whilst still slightly cold, obsessed with his music like never before. Prone to humming symphonies and doing little dances, the Caster finds himself enthralled by the chances that life cna throw at them.
When conducting, he finds himself becoming much more flamboyant and cheerful, music being his lifes work and joy it sends him simply into a world of ecstasy. When it comes to meeting new people, he finds himself just as he used to, cheerful and excited to encounter those that can teach him, yet after too much contact will feel the need to keep to himself more. Not being quick to trust is something he considers an asset, but those that can win his trust will have the knowledge that he would kill or die for them if they are a trusted and beloved friend.
For the war, his wish is to have a chance to create a perfect symphony to bless upon the world and redefine his legacy.
Bio: Born in a small village in Russia, no one would know Tchaikovsky was destined for greatness. Destiny was something he didn't believe in and when growing up it was obvious he wasn't built for the working and military service that his father prided himself with. Taught by a French governess how to speak Dutch and French through most of the family's money in hopes that he might have some aspirations, the governess discovered his talent for compositions and even at such a young age his prodigal nature was discovered to be something of great importance.
Forced to go down the road of becoming a civil servant, the piano player and budding composer found no joy in his talents being held back so brutally. Forced to go down the route of music teaching even though he himself knew he was worth so much more, he found himself meeting a group called the Five. All of which were extremely talented musicians and composers, who saw that Pyotr had so much more than what was required of a budding academic. During this time with this group that encouraged and fuelled his desire to make music, he created his first pieces of music that would shake the world of music to it's core and breathe life back into Russia, something they had been sorely lacking for centuries.
From there, it kicked off. Pyotr Ilych Tchaikovsky became widely known, himself finding the fame and renown to not be a great thing but enjoyed it nonetheless. He began acquainting himself with his orchestras, saying that they were more than just people and that each player would be essential, forming more and more ballets and symphonies. He was awarded with the title of Doctor of Music and was even voted into the Academie Des Duex Artes in France, the first Russian to ever be considered for membership.
After his fame and music continued to grow and grow, more pieces being produced and Pyotr scared that he was losing what was most important for music. He was losing his heart in some pieces. His last piece, his sixth symphony, was premiered on the 28th of October, a piece many said was full of his heart and he himself called it a grand symphony. He conducted it every day following until he died. Many said it was cholera, but only a few could even suspect what could be the truth. It was true he was unhappy with life. He felt like a man trapped inside a child's body, his true art trapped inside him but forced to smile and be a happy little boy in the eyes of the worldwide public.
He was given another chance, to live again. He took it. This war, would give him a chance to redefine himself. Create a piece more outstanding and stupendous than anyone would ever know and make his legacy his own. Although, his feelings of being too young to be summoned compared to the ancient heroes have brought him in a younger form but with a voice that correctly represents him.

Description: Known around the world as the man who brought Russian music to prominence, who perfected his art in a most stupendous way and conquered all challenges of music that laid ebfore him. Although personally distraught and beset with doubt and fear, Illych brought life to the music scene of 19th Century Russia, his Overtures and Suites like nothing anyone had seen before.
His greates work, was the 1812 Overture. Famous for it's outstanding orchestra and use of cannons, it blew most of the world away with it's first performance and Tchaikovsky himself was invited to conduct it at Carnegie Hall. He himself feared it's failure yet it was his most famous piece.
The Noble Phantasm summons an orchestra that can travel alongside Caster with the use of it's true name. 40 strings, 20 brass, 20 woodwind and 21 cannons. Strings and woodwinds when playing around enemies incurs incurs a debuff, brass shoot condensed air, cannons are well self explanatory. Caster uses them often to accelerate item creation and territory creation and it also spreads musical inspiration further. When the strings are playing all enemies suffer debuff to their agility, which gets worse the more the strings play for. The Orchestra also helps Caster replenish mana if he has activated them in his territory or his second Noble Phantasm. This also allows Illych to have control of music and air in the way of magic, able to float and levitate himself as well as send small air blasts, all relating to his control of music and himself. If he loses his cool or can no longer hear the music in life, this connection is lost.
