Dair was born of the pairing of two parents deeply warped by supernatural forces, and he seeks to master the gifts borne from his father's undine bloodline and his mothers atlantean ancestry. Dair has taken the ocean into his heart and seeks to let it guide him through riddle, mysteries, and acceptance of challenges.
Sayings, "The weather might yet turn to our favor". "Never turn your back on the ocean."
Appearance: Standing about 5’ 9”, Dair has long brown hair braided and tied away from his face, bright blue eyes, more teeth than usual and oddly pointed. He knows this makes him seem a little off around mundanes, and tries to not let that bother him; instead letting others chat and haggle. When relaxing he wears plain pants, tunic and a fur mantle; however when travelling he sometimes replaces the clothes with light leather armor and satchels and packs for his kit. Dair interchangeably carries an old walking staff he found ashore in his mother's home regio or a sharp fishing knife.
Background: (master) already visited the region offshore where Dair's mother lives as one of the many places where the fae regions connect with the mundane world. His master was not expecting to find a gifted child so closely linked to the water, and had to undertake some effort to source material which suited the apprentice's natural talents. Dair and his master have a tight relationship, with either often travelling to visit the other, and both still seek to assist each other.
Early in his apprenticeship Dair discovered his severe vulnerability to iron, and the detrimental affect it has on his magic. He is now acutely aware that he must avoid it whenever possible, and has plans to develop techniques to avoid or handle it magically in the near future.
Demeanor: Dair is unapologetic in his optimism. He has faced many challenges which defeated him, but instead of seeing these as failures he sees all aspects of his life as currents, streams, and waves in a wider ocean of experiences.
Casting Sigil: the smell of the ocean
Master's covenant: a large manor house atop a seaside cliff, with caves hidden below; located in a small bay facing the open ocean on the Isle of Man.
