Appearance: A bit on the short side for a True Orc. Santiago or 'Sam' as he asks his friends to call him, is a young orcish male who has experienced much in his short life. His dark green skin is riddled with pocks and burns from constant research and study into the magical arts. Blessed with rakish good looks and an easy smile it is hard not to fall into a sense of comfort in his company. He keeps his hair bleached white to kill any potential 'invaders' as he calls them as he rarely has time for a good scrub. Instead, he focuses on keeping himself clean in little ways, trimming his nails and washing his hands and face constantly.

Santiago commonly wears simple street clothes, a button up shirt and slacks bound with a belt. He keeps his shoes well shined and always wears his badge marking him as a student of the First Circle of magic. On the rare occasion that he does draw himself out of the libraries and labs of the academy, he wears his traditional mage's uniform comprising of a long brown coat and red sash. 

Personality: Santiago is more than your typical forgetful mage. Though he does have his moments of course, he never forgets a face and always tries to greet others with a smile and a firm handshake. Santiago has a habit of rubbing his wrists when he is nervous and cannot help but feel uneasy in large crowds. He enjoys simple and practical hobbies such as cooking and painting. Despite his kind nature, he has very little patience for rash and aggressive behavior and will often respond in kind.

When he was six years old his older brother Ral passed away abruptly from a sudden onset of Mana Poisoning. After further inspection, it was discovered that the boy had been exposed to a Mana leak while playing with his friends near the eastern edge of the sector. While a petition from his wealthy father saw that the leak was repaired, Santiago's family and Santiago himself were never the same.

At twelve he was scouted by a mage from the First Circle and allowed to participate in a preliminary apprenticeship before going to the academy at thirteen.

From that point on he spent the next eight years of his life pouring over magical theory and received a superb education.

A few short years later, Santiago took his first Magus Examination before the Circle and was awarded the rank of Novice and an official position as a State Mage.
