A 20 year old human who has already become a Thema Mage.


Name: Xen
Class: Thema Mage (Instability)


Seven Rings of Control (Each ring represents one of the chests Xen has access to. For example the first ring has a sword engraved on it, the second a bow, the third a fireball, etc.)
White cloth shirt
Brown cloth pants
Health potion
Dried meat and berries
Leather Boots


Rules: The power granted to Xen by being an instability thema mage is the ability to call upon the power of randomizer chests. These are small floating chests which when opened grant it’s user a unique skill, item, power, etc. At the moment Xen’s power level is at the point where he can access up to the first seven chests over a period of seven turns. Each turn one more box becomes available to him, and although it may seem like each box would be more powerful than the last this is true to some extent but not always. Each turn Xen can only open one of these box except for on special occasions where he may be allowed to access multiple chests in a single turn. This means that even though by turn seven Xen is at his full strength and has access to all seven chests he still has to choose which of the chests it is he wishes to open that turn.

Xen was a young boy who has always had a love for magic. However, unlike other students of magic he always liked to be outside the norm, combining random magic words together in desperate attempts at creating his own unique spells. As you can imagine this often resulted in dangerous and disastrous magical reactions. It was after being banned from almost every magic academy on the continent that Xen broke into a restricted area in one of the academies and combining several books worth of spells together he created a magical explosion so great that it wiped out the entire city. Once the explosion had cleared Xen found himself standing alone amidst the rubble of the once great city, and in his hands was a small wooden chest. This was the day that Xen first became a thema mage, and his theme was instability.

Thema Mage Description: A thema mage is a mage who has become infected by the force of magic itself granting them unique magical abilities not available to other mages based on the theme that the force of magic assigned to the individual. Often the theme assigned represents the individual’s personality. Thema mages each have a unique magic language dedicated solely to their theme, and only others of the same theme can read and chant the spells of that language. This is why although a destruction thema mage may cast a fireball the chant itself to do so will be different from that of a normal mage and vice versa. Also, as a drawback for having their own magical language they also cannot read the magic language of other themes or even the basic magic language used by all other mages.
