Name: Alexandra "Alexis" Ben'ghazad
Gender: FemaleAppearance (Ignore the swords)
Personality: Mischievous, Fun-loving, Carefree, Vengeful
Abilities: Affinity - Darkness (as in abscense of light) - Sub-category - Shadows
Alexis's magic affinity is that of darkness. The generation of darkness around here, by eating the ambient light around or invisibily in darkness are one of the small ways of using her powers. To generate darkness in a fully bright room is costly mana-wise but if there are dark spots in the room, she can use that to power her spells.
Projectile creation is possible by creating solid shadows from places where darkness and light meet. One of the higher level spells, Alexis knows is how to use one's shadow as a weapon against itself, rarely used to the ammount of mana needed and the fact she needs to be standing in the shadow cast by the person.
A non-combat used of her magic, even if it's a bit costing mana wise, she can teleport from one dark place to another as long as she can see the place. The range depeneds on how much mana is used. Another use would be the fact that by speding a bit of mana, Alexis can see in darkness as well as in the day.
Skills: Knife throwing - a skill she uses in combination with her powers if needed. She also throws knives when she wants to free up her mind.
Sneak - Alexis knows how to move silently without being heard/seen.
Tracker - A skill she only recently learned, she knows how to track people
Assets: Necklace of the Ben'ghazad - A necklace made out of gold with a diamond in the middle. A family heirloom which signals to those around Alexis that she is indeed from the Ben'ghazad family. A special enchantment is placed on it which prevents other people beside family members to wear it.
Brief Backstory: The Ben'ghazad family history is long and dark. An old family in the Tower with bad reputation would be an understatement when it comes to them. They started as petty thieves at first and slowly worked their way up to the assassinations. Their reputation as assassins was stellar as they would always finish a job, no matter for how long they would need to hunt their target. While they have now stopped their dark ways, most still believe they are active and don't interact with them.
Alexis always tried to befriend the other children of the other families but they wouldn't play or they were not allowed to play with her, so, instead of befriending them, Alexis, used to play pranks on them or on the adults.
When she was old enough to understand why some would hate or fear them, Alexis stopped caring about them and shut them off. She focused solely on her studies and became one of the most accomplished magi in the family. When the Ar-Rynesarte princess used the old contracts to call upon the family, Alexis voluntered in order to show everyone that the Ben'Ghazad's changed from their old ways.
