attractive man in purple who could see through talmage’s disguise
talmage was conditioned to believe that the magic he could do, as well as his very existence, was inherently evil. after bowing his head for too many years, he grew rebellious and bitter towards the organization that repeatedly beat him down.
as a young adult, he found and attended one of the few secret wizarding schools hidden around the country. these havens were kept secret from the vale in order to protect those who sought out a safe space to practice magic.
after the school was discovered by the vale, it was quickly destroyed, and talmage was left feeling lost, betrayed, and angry. an officer had branded him, something he soon found out caused him great pain when he tried to cast traditional wizard spells. slacking off in class paid off, however, and talmage found a way to bypass it. the unique artificer magic he had been slowly developing, using ink and symbols as its main components, were different enough to slip through the brand’s restrictions.
eventually talmage was picked up by the rockfort circus, a group of performers disguising their magical origins as simple parlor tricks. he is currently searching for a way to remove his brand and overthrow an evil megachurch.
he’s a bratty sub who might do the opposite of what you told him to just to be difficult!!!
despite being in the ideal environment, talmage was not a very good student. he slacked off and ignored the curriculum in favor of working on personal projects instead!
these “personal projects” typically involved taking the current coursework and pushing its limits, usually in dangerous ways. he borrowed school resources he shouldn’t have access to and caused a decent amount of property damage during his time there.
eventually he developed his own type of spellcasting, using certain objects and actions as the basis of his spells as opposed to the traditional wand and component pouch. as a frequent doodler and occasional graffiti artist, talmage was already drawn to the feeling he got when leading ink across paper. harnessing that and applying it to his magical studies became his new hobby.
talmage uses calligrapher’s tools to cast spells!
concentrating on a spell involves protecting the life of the ink – if concentration is broken, the ink probably dissipates or smears. these are a few examples of how he casts his spells:
- GUIDANCE – paint motiviating phrase onto skin
- ALARM – paint a line around the warded area, add bell symbol with same stroke – makes wind chime noise
- DISGUISE SELF – paint directly onto face (different symbols produce different appearances)
- IDENTIFY – paint onto a pair of glasses, use glasses to see through the spell
- CURE WOUNDS – paint onto skin using something with holy energy
- “talmage” means “ringing of bells”
- “talmage” typically auto-corrects to “magenta”
je sais qui tu es
imagine this playing as talmage runs from the walls of his crumbling school

i’ve been wasting all my time, used to care but never mind, fireballs out of my eyes burning down your temple
do you remember the way that we dreamed we could change our lives
