As a child, Marellian liked to explore. His home was full of places where he was not supposed to go, but that never stopped him. One day, he found a way into a room that was sealed off from the rest of the household. There, he discovered his grandfather, Akizellian’s secret magic laboratory, along with his books of magic. Fascinated, Marellian began to study his grandfather’s notes and journals, and over the years learnt enough to cast spells of his own. However, this secret studying came at a cost, as he became known as a loner and was shunned by the majority of townspeople. Only his younger half sister, Loraella, kept him grounded enough to remember that there was an outside world away from his beloved books.
Recently, Marellian has become involved with the Compassionate Church. He sees his role as a priest, helping those less fortunate. Certainly, the divine power of Compassion seems to be working through him. Sadly, his lack of insight hinders his priestly powers somewhat, but he makes up for it in zeal. His sister believes that the church is taking advantage of his naivety, but is powerless to stop him from doing the church’s bidding.
