This is Mirlith Xavier, one of my original characters. Once a half-elf, he was given magic from the Shadow Demon of the Panther God, then eventually blessed by the spiritual cat herself, he had lived for only a short thirty years befor his life was torn apart. Saving the one he loved he gave his life in their stead. It was the desire of those he worshipped and his lover that he survive, and so he was resurrected but at the cost of his mortality. Forever to be a servant to those who gave their power to him, and to suffer eternal anguish for his past sins. HIs body is no longer his to control and with the dragon blood taken to perform his reserrection he is no longer human nor an elf, he is a winged demon incapable of complete physical transformation. While his body cannot change his mind is a different thing entirely. When met with great stress or grief his mind is warped to take on the character of the beasts which gave their blood to him. Instinct and emotion control him, but no common differentiation of morality and the stress that drives him. He is lost to the blood lust that comes from his grief. +Xavier is perhaps one of my most tragic characters. In an attempt to keep himself from being taking over by his inner madness he bound himself to the mountain cave in which he and his love preside with fortified chain made of titanium and mithril, enhanced with blood magic from a dark priest (his brother) to ensure that he could harm no one when he changes, but his freedom is the cost, and he is the sacrifice.
