[Ref] Nocturne  by OpalesquePrincess [Ref] Nocturne  by OpalesquePrincess
Name: Nocturne
Gender: Male
Age: ??? (Appears mid 20s to 30s)
Height: 5'11"

Personality: For the most part he's calm and collected, especially around those working for him. Within his mind is a turmoil, an ever-growing sadness over the span of several years in search of his daughter and his growing spite for those attempting to stop his progress. Though he has been pulled out of his darker moods, namely by a woman he had met, Cecilia, and a boy that had stumbled upon the pair in his time of need. He has paternal instincts, and will protect his loved ones to his last breath; going as far as to threaten morbidly those attempting to harm them. He shows Cecilia alone a side of him that is almost a completely separate person in that his personality takes a sharp turn towards, what I've described jokingly as "a smitten puppy". 

Interests: Operas, Literature (Such as Shakespeare, Edgar Allen Poe, the sorts), Speaking to Cecilia in a manner of quotes from the older centuries, Dark Arts

Abilities: As a dark mage, he knows quite a few spells in the dark arts. Unfortunately, a hefty amount of them involve death in one for or another. One in particular can cause several yards of life around him to slowly wither and die; at the price of rapidly reducing his energy. The three wisps around him gauge his energy levels and as the last one is snuffed out he loses consciousness. The further injured he is, or at a loss of energy/mana he begins to become translucent and pale much as a phantom or ghost would appear. He has the capabilities of phantoms as well through the use of his magic; such as phasing through solid objects, drifting midair, and rendering himself invisible. He is subject to overworking himself or other black magic attacks. 

Background: It's hard to say quite where his troubles began. Perhaps when he had a child with his wife, a charming girl named Mely, when he noticed her distaste for her; to the point of one night snapping and nearly killing their daughter. Nocturne lost two things that night, his self control and his six year old daughter. In a fight to protect Mely, after having been stabbed by his wife, he in return attacked her with the same blade... Though something came loose in his mind. He found he couldn't quite stop. Unfortunately, his daughter had been watching and quickly fled the scene. Overcome with immense grief for what he had done, he went out into the storm after her and for hours searched crying out her name in vain. He doesn't recall most of the next day; a pair of travelers finding him in a distraught broken state. It was then he made a decision; levy the earth and build it anew. He started small, working his way up in a chain of dark mages before he had command over an organization all to himself; secretly in search of his daughter the entire time. The only other people who knew of this were his higher ups, the most trusted mages in his inner circle. Yes he could be said to be villainous and evil; he's killed many in his wake after all.

I feel as though I overdid the reference a tad but I love the end result. Llama Emoji 33 (Down or Depressed) [V2] by Jerikuto  Also how in the world did I manage the fabric folds... good lord.

Nocturne is actually a 7 year old character in my magicverse; one of my oldest and bigger expanded worlds. I may do the rest eventually though there's a lot of them. Some I've even aged up and give families.
