Scholar of the Ancients: Growing up with your nose in books, you’ve had a great interest in past cultures and ancient history. Furthermore, having grown up in Varisia, you know the monuments dotting the landscape belong to an ancient civilization known as Thassilon. From your life of study and dogged research, you’ve pieced together the language and partial history of this once-great empire. You gain a +1 trait bonus on Knowledge (arcana) and Knowledge (history) checks, and begin play able to speak and read Thassilonian.
You have a passion for history and news concerning monastic disciplines.
Benefits: You gain a +1 trait bonus on checks with your choice of either Knowledge (local) or Knowledge (history), and the one you choose is always a class skill for you. In addition, you gain a +1 trait bonus on Diplomacy checks made to gather information about any person with levels in monk.
You lived a previous life as someone—or something—else. For you, life and death are a cycle, and you have no fear of death.
Benefit: You gain a +2 trait bonus on saving throws against fear and death effects.
a strange mage by most accounts, Cian prefers to use knowledge to temper the magic in his blood rather than becoming a 'dusty tome, pointed hat, college wizard.' Nevermind that he spends time looking over dusty times himself studying the ancient cultures of Varisia and going to old ruins when he can.
When he discovered that there was one such ruin in Sandpoint known as 'Old Light' by the locals, he couldn't resist leaving to take a look. That the Swallowtail Festival was going to start the day after he planned to get there only encouraged him.
Cian himself is a mix of more than elf and human. Far back in both of his bloodlines lies twin sources of immense fire magic: a terrible red dragon whose name has been lost to the ages and an even older Ifrit Lord killed by a rival. He doesn't know this, or care, really. His own history has never interested him anyway.
He's a care free half-elf, never getting much of the stigma his kind usually receives as a child. But then, he tried to be nice to people as best he could, so why should he have?
