Where neither Seraphim nor raindrops go...
Fastidious Fire Mage
The Tiefling fire wizard Ardeth Belikosh both loves and fears his tremendous destructive power. Fearful of his demonic ancestry, to which he reverts in times of great weakness or dire need, he keeps tight control of his immediate surroundings. Obsessive-compulsively clean and germaphobic, he bathes five times a day in fire and meticulously notes his daily encounters. He is constantly studying his spellbook when not cleaning, fighting, or eating in an attempt to memorize every detail. He has a peculiar relationship with his summoned mage hand, which he has named Chris, and has often roomed and adventured with the Drow rogue Zelgos. He is the third of four male siblings, and is able to trace his ancestry back to the ancient high nobility of the Tiefling empire of Bael Turath. With the recent gifting of a powerful ancestral chalice, he is beginning to wonder if there is hope for the restoration of a Turathi throne. He is currently a graduate fellow at the University in Havorstov under Imeckus Stroon. He recently offered the players a free place to stay in his quarters, as long as “they kept everything tidy and in the corner”.
