This is a Wizard. It could be Gandalf, Merlin or another wise and high-aged magician. I think that a Wizard's main strenght should be his wisdom and his knowledge, not neccessarily his ability to cast flashy spells, though i don't deny that in some situations exacly that is the most.. wise course of action ;)

Nice, he looks a lot like Gandalf from the Movies. But some more wrinkles in his face around his eyes wouldn't be so bad, you know 12

:-) Thomas Pähler replies: "hehe 12 ...the funny thing is, i have a video production from Shakespeare's macbeth, where ian mckellen plays macbeth and he's really young with full black hair and smooth skin.. omg 12"
