Personality: With age comes experience and wisdom; Balthagos being no exception to such a fundamental law. As old as he is subjectively wise, Balth only ever strives to hone his abilities and better himself in whichever way he can. Heralding the legacy of a mad aspect with the utmost of shame, the dragon traverses across the globe - his empathic, broadened personality flaunted in whichever way is seen fit to gain the respect of those around him. Though, the idea of power above others coos the trait of arrogance for which Balth is not immune to. Whilst holding no desire to aimlessly murder nor injure those deemed unworthy - in the eyes of the blue at least - Balthagos takes the greatest of pleasures in displaying his dilatant magical knowledge to those who hold themselves in arch-regard.

Whilst a likeable fellow, Balth often, in a notably silent manner, looks down upon those whom lack in skill and strict teachings when it comes to the schools of arcane; often seen rolling his eyes in mischance upon their efforts. From mortal to dragon, his views greatly differ. Whilst a show of craftsmanship from a brethren could herald praise, that from a conventional human would only incite discourteous thoughts and the occasional belligerent comment sent their way.

Face: The facial expression of each individual, mortal disguise don’t differ all that greatly. Whether it’s by a lack of initial effort or a hideous capability in remaining consecutive, each frontispiece retains that of an average standard; the skin, whether it be pink or green, remains palatable and soft. The ever-defining, signature visual trait is that of Balthagos’ eyes. From elf to orc, a notable semblance of cobalt eyes hum with the latent arcane energy within his visage.

Attire: As with the overall physique and regalia of his mortal forms, none exhibit as much care and effort as that of his elven chassis. Whilst conventionally donning a signature blue robe, such adorned with rings and jewels – each swirling with vibrant phosphorescence – that match the tinge of his clothing, an occasional alteration to a more halcyon, melee-orientated set is made when venturing from the main Isle and into the eyes of the public.


Aroma: Whilst one may assume the brawler-type individual would hum of sweat, dirt and one whom lacks all grace, depending on which guise is indeed taken, they may indeed be surprised to discover the ever-lasting scent of herbs – such spread across the entirety of his visage and enshrouding his altitudinous figurine in a near-alluring aroma.


True Form: Swords, daggers, arrows and diminutive explosions alike will all find themselves heavily attenuated in the face of Balthagos’ natural armouring; possibly even useless as a whole depending on their base composition and a lack of enchanted effect. Whilst dents may occur, few textures and metallic compounds hold the density, sharpness and overall power to yield the magically-imbued scales. Balthagos’ claws, each at a populous two meters, retain an acuminated tip with serrations traversing the total length – designed got tearing, maiming and causing general lacerations to that which it may indeed come into contact with. With the natural, overhelming strength granted by his grand visage, the physical appendages – whilst intended to rip through fleshy surfaces – show the utmost of general ease in destroy metallic surfaces.

Blessing of the Titans: As per this specific charging and native power, Balthagos weaves magic in a masterful, almost godly fashion; taking mere moments to craft vigorous, aggrandized spells with the utmost of grace and pleasure. An eternal, notably transparent, stream of azure phosphorescence encircles the stupendous creature – merely waiting to be contrived to devastating effect. On occasion, the blue has been known to, temporarily, strip an individual of his ability to cast magic – such commonly referred to as ‘withdrawing Malygos’ favour’.

Magical Resistance: As a result of Balthagos’ natural propensity for magical, alike all others of his flight, the winged beast has developed an amazingly high resistance to the spellbinding energy as a whole – capable of withstanding a gracious amount of hostiles attacks and being relatively undamaged – given their scale, composition and source of power.


Image


Drakenguard: The blade itself, whilst obviously diffusive, also heralds a texture that is near-immutable; said handle rivalling the length of the average human forearm yet surprisingly light to the touch. The throium blade is adorned with a thin layer of truesilver, such ripe with latent arcane energy. On the odd occasion, Balthemar has been witnessed using the signature blade as a conduit for his latent magical manipulation; sending forth strings of electricity or covering the metallic shaft in a plume of calescent, cobalt flame.

The Noctorium: The lawful compendium, as old as it is informative, heralds centuries of paramount spells and archaic knowledge; such held together by that of a simple, yet ensorcelled lock.


[Big ups to Mory for the lay-out.]
