Areal: "The Walled City of Omerith
Friend of Ayrick, Novice member of The Seekers of Silentread
Arwin Ludgate is a timid and frail human. He has light skin, blonde hair, and a stick figure body type that he always keeps concealed under his mages robes. Arwin comes from the slums of Omerith. He has a mother that is a dishwasher for the local tavern and a drunk for a father. At the age of 18, Arwin discovered his powers one night while breaking up a fight between his mother and father. His father, drunk as usual, was attacking his mother. Arwin tried to get in between them but his father smacked him to the floor with his drinking mug. While laying on the floor, bleeding from a cut on the side of his forehead, Arwin laid on the floor and thought about all the times he has been hit by this man. All the years he watched this man hurt his mother. Without thinking, Arwin stood up, stuck his hand out and shot lighting from his finger tips. The lighting shot into Arwin’s father, giving the man a heart attack and ultimately killing him. After that night, his mother spoke to a representative for the Seekers of Silentread college. They gladly took him in as long as he pledged loyalty to the Seekers and Omerith and serve in any way to the High Council to atone for the murder of his father. Agreeing to the pact, Arwin left his mother in the slums and moved to the Seekers of Silentread where he was put with a Halfling roommate named Ayrick. Arwin and Ayrick hit it off because of their love for magic and the hidden mysteries. They have been friends ever since.
