    • Effect: This spell protects the target from one element or trapping type, chosen during the casting. Unless other-wise listed above, the caster may pick any element or trapping type. The GM should adjudicate trappings that do not easily fit. For instance, a boltspell using flying daggers should fall under earth because the dagger is made of metal, whereas a rainbow burstshould probably come under light. For the duration of the spell, the target suffers only half damage from this source, no damage with a raise. Note that this spell only stops direct attacks, making it the opposite of environmental protection.

Bio:

Backstory

Born into the House of Idiran in the Magocracy, Argius was the third son of Mage-Count Howel Idiran of the Third Sphere. Argius attended the Port Helgen Academy of Magic from age 5 to 14. As is tradition, he became a heahwisard on the Staff Day in his fourteenth year. On that day he swore an oath to heahwisardy, to the Mage-King, and to his family.

Argius was noticeably more proficient than his siblings in the arcane arts, and devoted himself from a young age to his magical studies. He does not expect to inherit, but plans to advance the interests of House Idiran through research and spellcraft. He and his younger brother, Emeric, joked from a young age that they would travel the world to recover one of the lost Staves, elevating House Idiran to a Principality in its own right. With the training to appreciate the beauty and mystery of magic, it is now less of a joke and more of a raison d’ĂȘtre.

Family Tree

  • Father – Howel Idiran
    • Mage-Count of the Third Sphere
    • Has great ambition for House Idiran, but is loyal to Mage-Princess Olivia Hergenald. Whether that loyalty is true, or due to the amount of trade that is required to pass through Port Helgen (controlled by the Mage-Princess) is anyone’s guess.
  • Mother – Elianor Idiran nee Varrid
    • Mage-Countess of the Third Sphere
    • Daughter of Mage-Baron Adrian Varrid, vassal of House Haldir-Horgang
  • Siblings
    • Serin Idiran
      • Age 25
      • Mage-Baron of the Second Sphere
      • Attended the Academy of Heahwisardry in Kingshall
      • Married to Mage-Banneress Astia ap-Viktor of House Brolus.
        • Daughter of Mage-Count Viktor ap-Gaiden of House Brolus, a vassal of House Tharkness
    • Lusiane Hergenald nee Idiran
      • Age 23
      • Mage-Banneress of the First Sphere
      • Attended the Academy of Heahwisardry in Kingshall
      • Married to Mage-Banneret Maro Hergenald, nephew of Mage-Princess Olivia
    • Delbaeth Idiran
      • Age 19
      • Mage-Knight of the First Sphere
      • Attended the Port Helgen Academy of Magic
      • Slightly annoying older brother. The oldest at the academy, he liked to pretend that he was much more important than his younger siblings and ignored them completely.
    • Emeric Idiran
      • Age 16
      • Mage-Knight of the First Sphere
      • Attended the Port Helgen Academy of Magic
      • Closest sibling to Argius – being close in age, they shared a few classes at the academy.
    • Lucia Idiran
      • Age 14
      • Mage-Lady of the First Sphere
      • Recently had her Staff Day (Third Monandaeg in Eostremonan, 499 IR)
      • Betrothed to Mage-Knight Eduard Duilis, heir to Mage-Banneret Ris Duilis, a vassal of House Zandor
        • Slightly unhappy with this fact – she has never met the Mage-Banneret, and he is nearly twice her age. Politically it is a good match, but she has been trying to get out of the marriage.
        • Even if she cannot get out of it initially, it is only a bed marriage. If she provides a son or daughter to house Dullis, she can get out of the marriage in a year.
      • After Emeric, the closest of siblings to Argius. Somewhat shy, but magically powerful.

House Idiran

Idiran is a rising house, fueled by the ambition of Mage-Count Howel Idiran and the County’s fertile farmlands. Vassals of House Hergenald.

Sigil: Crossed staves above the crescent moon, on a background of dark red with a single grey stripe.
