Dear gawds above, strike me down so I don't have to

So I am going to do a thing that I've never done before.
I am going to play the first character that someone posts here.
Please make a starting level full mage for Ars Magica 5e. I will play whatever it is.

To understand a bit further...

The last time I played this game was with someone who I used to consider a really good friend but now will never speak to. The person running this new game isn't part of that. They mean well and I respect them. If they somehow find this and read it, I want to give the game an honest try. I want to have fun with it and not disrupt it.
But I have Z E R O desire to go through making a character. All it does is remind me of the hole in my heart left by this other person. I lost someone very close to me a few months back which isn't helping, either.
So I will play and I will be a good and respectful player and I will do my honest best to have fun. But I'm not making a character.
I don't care if the character is useless or not. I don't care if they're overpowered or not. I don't care if they're amazingly detailed, generic, powerful or powerless. I just want to play the game with whatever character and get it over with so I can stop thinking of my lost friend.
If you choose to go through with this and make a character for me, please know that the answer to any question is "whatever you feel like putting in" or "I don't know". There are literally no specifics that I have for you.
Thank you for reading.

Why delegate a decision to someone else, when you can delegate to a dice. Open the base book at page 24, there are twelve magi just out of apprenticeship with 25 years of age. Either pick a house and start with that template, or if you can't get yourself to make that decision, roll a twelve-sided die. Also - welcome on this forum. Make yourself at home. And may you enjoy the game and stop thinking about that person who hurt you.

Please do not take this personally or as any sort of sleight: doing what you just said sounds AWFUL to me. I am in a headspace where I just need someone to say "You're playing this guy that does this."

I hope you'll forgive me for delegating that decision to the dice. You're playing the Ex Miscellanea template. You'll need to adjust the Native Language 5 to whatever locale your storyteller is putting his campaign in.

Here you go:
