Name: Thurn Eibor
While in general the people of Ferria are not particularly understanding of magical wielding wizards and favour the scientific and mechanical pioneers much more, they do tolerate the existence of magic and practitioners of magical arts in their realm. Especially if the wielders are upfront and open about their abilities and do not use subtle trickery to manipulate the world.
At the age of six, Thurn Eibor was already a potent practitioner of raw manifestations of magical energy and his uncle realized that the boy was a rarity in Ferria and that he needed guidance and tutoring to handle and cultivate his abilities. His own family didn’t extend his uncle’s understanding and would have rather sought out means to suppress the boy’s abilities. His uncle and his father came into understanding after an unfortunate accident when Thurn accidentally burnt down their barn while unsuccessfully practising harnessing his abilities. The uncle and Thurn started a long journey to the fabled lands of Myrna where they hoped Thurn would find help in mastering his talents. Some months later in Myrna Thurn’s uncle did find a willing mentor and Thurn entered the service of a renowned wizard Chalcumus only at the age of 8 being the youngest pupil he had ever taught.
Fast forward ten years and Thurn and his uncle returned to Ferria and the timid boy had developed to a mighty magician able to manipulate forces way beyond the comprehension of the commoner.
Nowadays Thurn is well known in Ferria and particularly liked because of his mastery of elemental magic – a form of tangible and easy-to-grasp magic with a visual appeal as well. The are not many magicians in Ferria and thus it has been easy for Thurn to make a living hiring his talents to actual labour and entertainment alike. He mostly works in the bigger cities and towns where the attitudes towards his abilities are a little big better tolerated than in the countryside.
Thurn is a talkative and witty person with a cultivated aura of confidence and reassuring presence. Boosted with convincing, clear and audible voice he is surely a crowd-pleaser if there ever was one. But in Ferria his lack of education on matters technical and scientific is a clear disadvantage and a reason he has never held any important position within Ferria and is likely never going to be offered one either no matter his expertise in matters magical.
