"image" is the name of a recurring character from my longest running game - BESM (now he appears in like every single BESM game I run for the guys that first interacted with him)

Well, let's start with imagining a grey elf. Now, take this grey elf, and make him a wizard. An illusionist to be precise (i like illusions). Give him som archivist levels too, for extra gimpyness. Then make him highly intelligent, a rebel who's not quite sure of his cause, a strong idealist, paranoid, and completely suicidal. Fun times, no? To date, his near-death experiences include:
Being run through by a wererat, and subsequently bitten - good thing we had access to some poisonous wolfsbane...
Being nearly drowned due to the weight of leeches the size of his legs.
Having solid chunks of him devoured by a hydra.
Nearly breaking his neck multiple times due to several fails caused by incredibly low physical scores.
Having a sword run through his back by a 300 years old undead abomination thingy - incidentally, it's the great-great-great-something of our ranger, who's now wielding said sword. Did i mention our ranger is completely psychotic, and that he hates my character's guts?
Being lost for days in a maze, with no spellbook.
Attempting to jump on a manticore to save his fighter friend - cue one critical fail and slipping from the roof.
All in all, a perfect way to introduce someone to the hobby. Oh, and he carried enough weapons to make a fighter blush. Longspears, shortspears, longswords, daggers, staves, bows, crossbows, etc... Yeah, that's me.
