"The crowd fell silent; spell bounded by his tales of lost lovers, unsung heroes, and myths. It was almost unbelievable, Artemis thought. All he had done was sing..."
Artist's Note: So, heya! it's been awhile since I've posted anything. College has been hectic so I had been pretty busy. But anyway, here's a character I've had in store for a while. Meet my Orphic bard!
Name: Magnus Kantarona Hunt
Nickname: Mag, Bard boy (by Persy)
Description: Kind, quiet and a gentle soul by nature, Mag was often seen as an invisible, unassuming soul to the public eye. Those who noticed him often thought him as strange, for while his singing talent was impeccable, he could sometimes be found talking to air! Others thought he was crazy, for his views on death were, to say the least... very different. Little did the people of the Meridian capital know, the bard had a gift: he could communicated with spirits. Using his songs and his lute (which may or may not have magical properties), he traveled around Meridian and helped lost souls move on to the afterlife. There would be times one would even bump into the bard performing in a local pub or small public performances depending on where he would be. People would often say that there was something alluring about the young bard's voice; something that would always draw them to his performances and give them this soothing feeling (despite the chills they'd feel as if there were other unseen members in the audience), but none could figure out why or how it happened.
Unbeknownst to to people, Magnus was actually a reptilian himself. He belong to the Crocodilian tribes, a group of reptilians that have been mostly banished from Meridian many eons ago by Sir Escanor himself. History books that would mention these tribes would not leave out that their gift and power over Nether magic was always something to be feared.
Soon, Queen Elyon would find the quiet bard at the doorstep to her castle, ready to perform for her. But what are the bard's motivations? Is he here to help rebuild the connection between his people and the Meridian capital? ...Or is he here for something more sinister?
