Half-Elf Wizard (Illusion School)
One half of a set of twins. Both women are Half-Elves although one is a talented illusionist and the other is a skilled Barbarian Tactician. They were abandoned by their parents when it was discovered that they were half-breeds. They were taken in by sympathetic humans who raised them in secret. One sibling grew up curious and mischievous, she had a spark for magic and always wanted to be able to alter herself and her appearance, knowing even at a young age that she was being hidden from other people. As she grew older she learned how to disguise herself and snuck into the settlement and studied through a wizards spellbook, teaching herself magic. Eventually the human wizard caught her but recognized her natural and obvious talent. He approached her guardians and asked to teach her in secret. While studying under his tutelage she realized that spells had annoying limitations so she began trying to create her own by using knowledge of spells she had researched and experimenting creating new spells. Her mentor didn’t know about these spells. As her mentor aged she devoured all of his knowledge focusing mainly on illusion spells. Sadly another human wizard had set his sights on her mentor, wanting him as a teacher for himself, when he was turned away he grew angry and suspicious. Upon discovery that the old man had a student already and finding out that she was of the “lesser” races the young man plotted to murder the old man and frame the young half-elf.
