Scorius (NPC, TBD) by Ascynd Scorius (NPC, TBD) by Ascynd
"Fire magic is 10% aggression and 90% control. Anyone can start a fire. Wielding fire requires awareness, knowledge and will. To master your inner flame, you must tap your innate ferocity and then harness it with discipline. But beware! Unbridled anger, like an uncontained inferno, can destroy you and everyone around you. You will learn to control both, but we will start with your temper. Now dodge this, whelp..."

Most think of Fire adepts as volatile-tempered. Scorius seems quite the opposite.... calm, rational, very difficult to rouse to anger... even courteous and good humored in most situations. As a mentor however, he is harsh and unrelenting. He will push his students to their limits, and only if they can learn to keep their temper in check will he teach them the greater secrets of fire magic. To Scorius this is as vital as a beginner acrobat first learning how to fall without being hurt... it is essential to the safety of the student and others, and no conscientious mentor would skip this step when teaching something as potent and dangerous as the explosive power of fire. If a potential student can thrive under his drill-sergeant like tutelage, the combination of discipline and skill they gain will forge them them powerful and steadfast allies and terrifying foes.

(My example of a firebreathing Wyngro... he has a few upgrades, mainly color shift, color mixer, pointed elbows, small teeth, horns (stubs, forehead and nose), barbed tail, large batwings, basic stripes.)

Thanks! If he does get used as a mentor hopefully this will help anyone drawing him to imagine the situations they want to illustrate. =D

WOWWEEEEE. This is intense! I love it! This looks like it belongs on a front page of a petsite or something, haha. Very well done!

I don't think ALL of the examples need to be quite this detailed, haha. But I love how you made a character out of him and everything.
We have a couple of teachers so far, (Netty and her crazy husband-- I'll release more on him later)
But what about a specialist. Maybe he could be an NPC that qualifies as a "mentor" people can choose from if they decide to learn magic on their own. They could take private lessons (unofficially) from him!

Feel free to give him a name and personality if you'd like as well!

I named him already. It's Scorius. Don't have a personality yet though.  And thanks!
