Reven - City on the Edge
Born the second son of local nobility Kyra and Victor Thornton, Varik was born and raised in this city. His brother, named Victor for his father, is the heir to his food import business. Thus far he’s lived a fairly sheltered life, at least up until his entrance into the academy. At first, magic wasn’t exactly his thing, he struggled through the first few years of academy, before finally managing to equal the level of his peers. Through those years of school, Varik became fairly dependent on texts and studying, and came through more or less alienated from his peers. The more withdrawn he became, the less life experience he gained. While Varik has a great amount of book knowledge, but he lacks a bit of… street smarts.
