Vincent Vinder is an unlikely mage from the village of Sandpoint, just south of Tristania. The only son of Katrina Vinder and his unknown father.
Vincent shares a few similarities with his mother: Slender figure, narrow face and shoulders. However, he has piercing golden eyes that were possibly inherited by his father. He rarely ever does up his uniform shirt completely, leaving the top three buttons undone unless there is a royal visit. He often wears a longsword on his hip, the only memento left to him by his father.
Since Vincent was young he was bullied. At first it was because of his missing father and golden eyes, but later in life it was because of his affinity to animals and time spent with the local stable-master, Daverin Hosk. Because of the relentless bullying Vincent became something of a recluse, often looking to the floor to avoid eye-contact with others. Despite this, he is an honest boy who wants to do whatever he can to protect those he loves.
Though not a born noble, Vincent has a strange affinity towards fire magic. Even more abnormal was his ability to cast without a wand, but he still requires an incantation. After his first casting at 10, Vincent has been terrified of his powers and refuses to tell anyone what he can do. The only ones who knows of his casting abilities are his mother and mentor.
After seeing Vincent's difficult life, he was pseudo-adopted by Daverin Hosk, the local ranger and stable-master. After three years of training with a blade, Vincent opened up to Daverin about his casting abilities but begged him to keep it a secret. Daverin agreed, but insisted that Vincent entered the Tristain Academy of Magic to learn more of his abilities and how to control them.
A trait handed down to him during his training with Daverin. He mostly uses it for noble causes, such as helping a friend.
Vincent had always enjoyed stargazing, especially during the winter when the sky is the clearest. He mainly enjoys it to remind himself that everyone looks at the same sky, and that no one should ever be treated poorly because of where they come from or what they look like.
