The nymph retains a link to her token and its carrier as if she had cast a status spell on the carrier. The nymph can end this effect at any time as a free action. A single nymph may only inspire one creature at a time in this manner.

Lucian was born in Sandpoint, though his parents quickly understood they wouldn't be able to keep up with the young boy's thirst for knowledge. Early in his life, he displayed an amazing capacity to absorb knowledge of all kinds without effort. In fact, it was as if knowledge came to him on its own volition. At first it wasn't a problem, and Lucian's parents were both very happy to raise a bright child.

Things didn't remain this way though. To nobody's surprise, the Varisian boy joined the Turandarok Academy one year earlier than most children. Sandpoint's appointed teacher, Ilsoari Gandethus, welcomed the child with open arms, excited to see a student that would care about his teachings on old Varisia, the various Shoanti tribes, and the effect of bonemeal on crop cultures in the Sandpoint hinterlands. The old teacher soon had to admit he was unable to cater to Lucian's needs in learning, and the boy's reaction was not a decent one. He started sabotaging the teacher's courses, acting as a know-it-all or give the answers to his classmates when an infuriated Ilsoari wanted each of them to think their way out of the problem. Needless to say, Lucian soon found the Turandarok academy's gates closed to him.

The prodigy's father then turned to the only man who could be a good teacher for young Lucian, Sandpoint's sage Brodert Quink. The elderly man proved a strange if perfect match for the boy, who learned to love listening to the endless ramblings - or were they pieces of a historical jigsaw puzzle? - that Quink fed him with. He became an eager listener to this source of endless knowledge on lost empires, forgotten languages, planes of existance, and lines of succession among the Shoanti chieftains of the Shiikirri-Quah. Lucian eventually came to share Brodert Quink's great passion in the ancient civilization of Thassilon, and helped him in his experiments on the Old Light, unfortunately to no avail.

One day, the young boy noticed that his mentor would travel alone to a secluded location on the coast at night, without even telling him where he would go. Moved by his unquenchable curiosity, Lucian decided to follow the old man to that place and was able to understand why Bordert was so secretive about it: the loremaster had unearthed a Thassilonian artifact, marked with the rune of wrath. Ever the cautious man, Quink spent the whole night studying the dweomer from afar, refraining from touching the dangerous rune. Hours later, he returned to Sandpoint, without noticing his apprentice who was hidden not far away. Once his master gone, Lucian approached the artifact, fascinated by it. After a quick study and some preliminary remarks, he decided to cross the threshold the loremaster was unwilling to cross - he touched the rune. The Thasslionian stone burst into a pillar of flame instantly, seriously burning the young man's hands. Power infused Lucian as a result, but the price to pay was high: his hands would forever be charred beyond healing. Fortunately, the young man's master wasn't far away and could save Lucian's life. He even refused to scold the foolish boy, as the lesson was already learned.

In time, Lucian lost his troublemaker attitude completely to become a fine, balanced young man who was taught to love sharing his knowledge within the canvas of social conventions. He has grown very fond of Brodert Quink, but he knows there is a moment a man has to leave his mentor in order to learn on his own...


Lucian is what could be considered as a pure Varisian: his pale skin is adorned with jet black hair tied in a neat ponytail. His dark eyes burn with a passion that animates every fiber of his being. This makes him an extremely outgoing and friendly person, eager to share stories with people he's just met. His clothes are simple. He usually wears a scholarly tunic, its numerous pockets being more practical than good-looking. One touch of vibrant color is apparent, though. His kapenia, or Varisian scarf, flashes brightly of red and blue hues. A keen eye could spot many pockets in this scarf, filled with parchments, scrolls, vials and various tokens the Varisian people are so fond of.
