Familiar: Quince the Leaf-Eared Hedgehog
Durand is a bit of a history buff. He spends his free time poring over the bastions of magic history that made their mark on the world. He doesn’t really talk to many people and doesn’t seem to have very many close friends. He could be popular: with his strong jaw and curly brown hair, he’s not bad looking. He just doesn’t seem to have much of a personality. For as much time as he spends studying, though, he doesn’t seem to do all that well on all his exams. For someone named after the legendary King Durand, he doesn’t seem to be a very good wizard. He always seems frazzled and vaguely afraid of everything. Talk to him, however, and you’ll learn about strange and obscure magic you’ve never even heard of. Why would he want to know about that stuff?
Durand wants desperately to create a spell of his very own. He got lots of ideas and he’s finally getting an idea of how to bring them to life. He’ll take any chance he gets to try out a new spell. While his research doesn’t help him too much on tests, he knows more about obscure magics and techniques than almost any other student on campus.
Ability: History Buff
Durand has worked incredibly hard at developing a wide knowledge of history, and one of the benefits is a pretty good sense of where his knowledge is lacking and how he can fill the gaps. Basically, Durand can make very educated guesses about gaps in his knowledge - to all intents and purposes Increasing his Choice of History subskill by a good three points for a few days - and might, in the process, permanently Expand his Reason subskill by one Step with a successful History/Intelligence Roll vs 13.
