In the kingdom of Elysia, magic is revered and protected. For centuries, a mystical barrier known as the Veil has shielded the realm from the influence of dark forces and forbidden magic. But beneath the surface of this seemingly idyllic land, a clandestine society known as the Shadow Keepers exists, wielding the very magic that the Veil was created to suppress.

As the Veil begins to weaken, and dark energy seeps into the kingdom, causing chaos and threatening the stability. The rulers of Elysia must take action to prevent a catastrophe. They dispatch a group of skilled individuals on a perilous quest to uncover the cause of the Veil's decline and find a way to restore its strength.

This is going to be a crazy enemies to lovers sort of deal.

Name: Raziel
Age: 22
Gender: Male
Sexuality: Homosexual
Eyes) Icy, but somehow warm, sapphire blue eyes.
Hair) Black with hints of navy and onyx.
Skin) Light Olive
Height) 5’7
Weight) 195lbs
Body Type) Lean
Personality: Raziel is an overall cheerful person on the outside, but on the inside he’s calculating and always paying attention. He never says anything he doesn’t mean to say and always takes his time with his words. When doing this, Raziel can be silent for minuets at a time, just thinking of the best way to say something. When having a conversation with him, it’s ideal to have lots of patience because when rushed, Raziel will just take longer on purpose. He’ll even put this way of thinking into his writing.
Back to his outside portrayal, he’s usually never without his disarming and charming smile and he’s quick with a laugh. Those who really know him know the difference between his real smile and laugh versus his courtiers smile and laugh. When he’s really happy and smiling, he has a dimple in his left cheek, and his laugh is bright. With his courtiers smile, there are no dimples and his laugh is slightly lower, not as bright.
Raziel is pretty easy going, and will take an insult in stride, flashing a smile and laughing. Depending on how bad the insult is though, his eyes may darken with anger, but many people don’t think the darkening of his eyes is from anger, as he never portrays anger. If the insult is really bad, he’ll usually come up with some clever way to embarrass the person in front of everyone.
When he’s with the people he cares about, Raziel is completely different, not so quick with a laugh or smile, as his real ones are far and few between. Instead of thinking of the right thing to say to please the person in front of him, or get information out of them, he’ll usually tell the truth and tell them of his worries, knowing that sharing these things are enter than trying to deal with them alone.
Raziel has interesting humor, sometimes preferring a darker humor, or ever ‘dad’ humor, with stupid and cheesy jokes. He can find a funny side to almost anything, and enjoys seeing people laugh (Well, the people he thinks should be happy).
-Dancing; He loves dancing, especially to music. He has a fluid way of moving.
-Music; Music makes him feel alive and a want to get up and move.
-Writing; This is what he does to relax and calm down from long days.
-Liars; He hates the idea that someone could lie to another person. (Even though he lies to half the people in his life about what he really does)
-Repetitiveness; If people, stories or anything repeated itself more than 3 times, it will start to annoy Raziel to his last nerves, and he may just get up and walk away from whatever is doing the repeating.
-Bossiness; There is a difference in telling someone what to do when you need someone to do something and just telling someone to do something because you can and/or want to.
-Magic; He’s just naturally good at it. You know, one of those natural skills that people have. he naturally understands magic, and after a few tries, can do a new spell pretty well, and with ease, depending on the difficulty.
-Writing; as a hobby he invests a lot of time in, he is very good at it.
-Fighting; Hand him any melee weapon and he will kick your ass. He's not so goo with ranged weapons.
-Losing Control of his Magic; As he practices the forbidden arts, if he loses control, many people could die.
-He’s irrationally afraid of man made heights.
-He’s afraid of getting his hear broken.
Mental: N/A
Physical: Besides his fluid-ness when he moves, there’s nothing else.
Background: Raziel grew up in a supportive and healthy home. His mother was a stay at home mom, enjoying being close to her kids, and helping their lives as much as possible. His father went to work and made the money, but not much of it, and defiantly not enough. So, when Raziel was about 10 or 11, he started to do magic tricks out in the streets. It was also about the time he learned his love of Magic. Raziel uses his pay to help out the family and slowly saved up enough money for magic lessons, he took healing to start off with He would also work for the man who taught him to help pay for his lessons when he didn’t have enough money.
When he was about 12, he also discovered he loved to write, but this was third to his love of magic and fighting, but he still found he was very good at drawing and he invested more money into this skill. At this point, he had no money for anything else in life, but he was still content.
When he was 16, he wanted to learn more magic, but he was told he had studied it all. He knew there was more out there and started to push against the veil, learning more about magic and what it can really do. He always had known that it was just a little too safe, and there was not much he could do with it. So, when he was 19 he joined the Shadow Keeper's, quickly rising up withing the ranks. He's not on top, but he is very well known by the name 'Shadow Bringer'.

(We could start with their first meeting? Cassian can be sent on a mission with his team to raid one of the Shadow Keepers’ bases and they can have a run in (of course your boy will get away haha) )


(Exactly like that. Basically anything that would be considered morally questionable. So like you said: necromancy and darkness. Anything that can be used to cause harm/death. Just your basic evil stuff)

(Oh, also, what time period? For tech and stuff? Modern day? 1700's? Just so I know what kind of tech my character would have and the kind of clothes he would wear)


(Like a futuristic medieval world. So it's set up with the same politics and such as a medieval time period (same types of buildings and such as well) but with advanced tech. Clothing would have a modernized medieval look. Does that make sense?)
