About Asriel Collins
In his natural form, Asriel is an exceptionally thin man with pale skin, disheveled, black hair, and dark green eyes. His sullen brow and high cheek-bones give him a brooding charm that has served him well in his romantic endeavors. His willowy build lends itself most easily to the stature of an elf, and this is the form he most frequently chooses to exhibit. He is personable and kind, if a bit arrogant. The greatest fault in his character is an unrelenting desire to uncover knowledge, to the point that he will sometimes inconvenience himself or other in order to acquire information. He firmly believes that there are two sides to every issue, and that good or evil do not truly exist, but are simply the results of opposing simply points of view.

Born into an academic family within the mountains of Animus, Asriel is most notable for his insatiable curiosity, his devilish charm, and his imperious skepticism. His father, Tristan, was a professor and an inventor, famous for his work on clockwork transportation devices. Asriel's mother, Violet, was an adviser to the Archmagi of the time. Despite attending the nest schools available, Asriel learned far more from his parents than he did through any of his formal instruction. His father taught him to calmly and rationally analyze problems, and quickly calculate the most efficient solution, encouraging Asriel's knack for alchemy, while Emily taught him how to compose himself in dealings with others, as well as sparking a deep appreciation for the arts. The only person who arguably had a bigger impact on young Asriel's life was Sri'La, a Liganin woman from Nerin. Sri'La was traveling the world, "searching for purpose," as she said. Asriel met her while traveling the roads of the great city in which he lived, and was stunned to see this small Liganin, as he had never seen one of her kind before. Burning with questions, Asriel chased after the flustered adventurer, determined to learn about Liganin forest culture first-hand. He instead learned of another part of himself. Sri'La was not smart, in the way Asriel had come to think of intelligence, but she possessed some sort of great, indescribable knowledge that escaped him. He could sense it in her movements, the way her eyes glimmered, and even in her speech patterns, as though she knew the secrets of the world itself. She traveling the world, "searching for purpose," as she said. It was then that Asriel first began to look beyond his own scholarly pursuits, to dream of adventure and travel. He knew that there was knowledge that could not be found in any book, and he made it his personal quest to uncover it.
