Once again a Blue Wisp, VarSel appears to be a humanoid made up of blue energy. The form of a Blue Wisp has no external features such as eyes, ears or a mouth. This lack of features can be disturbing for other species that aren’t accustomed to Wisps and as a result, VarSel will usually cover his entire body with robes and armor to make other species more comfortable around him.
VarSel is currently 100 years old, less than halfway through the typical Wisp life-cycle of 350 years. As Wisps grow older their arcane powers increase dramatically to the point that Wisps that are within 10 years of their death contain so much arcane power that they glow like a star. In addition as they contain so much power non-sentient Wisps start crowding around them making it appear that a dense fog follows their every step.
Wisps can only generate more Wisps by reaching exactly 350 years. On the moment they reach that age, their brightness will momentarily exceed that of a sun and they explode with all their built up arcane power. This explosion grants any surrounding Wisps sentience.
However with VarSels transformation into a Grey Wisp, the rules that apply to regular Wisps may no longer hold true for his new form. Only time will reveal any new or altered abilities.
VarSel has now reverted back into his original blue form, whether his time as a Grey Wisp has had any long term effects remains to be seen.
VarSel has been writing in his book On the Nature of The Codex. Within are his thoughts and guesses on major events he has experienced so far.
VarSel is a Blue Wisp from the Archive Ascendancy. He was on a mission to locate and deliver magical tomes that once belonged to The Great Library.
VarSel is currently in the possession of the Key of Hidden Potential.
Upon using the Key for the thrid time he was contacted by the Judge that represents evil and was offered a deal. Serve the Judge and live, or die while wielding the full power of the key. VarSel chose to accept the deal and now has become the worlds first Grey Wisp.
As a Grey Wisp the world seems more vibrant than it ever was before. VarSel also no longer feels sadness when witnessing evil or wrong deeds, instead he feels content, or even happy, when he views these deeds.
Once again a Blue Wisp, VarSel wonders whether his time as a Grey Wisp will have any lasting effects on his body.
After the confirmation that there is a magical artifact within Andrei’s eye, VarSel has resolved to figure out it powers. Until the time that it’s powers are known, Andrei is a risk to everyone around him.
VarSel lives by these standards:
“Life before death – The Wisp seeks to defend life, always. He never kills unnecessarily, and never risks his own life for frivolous reasons. Living is harder than dying. The Wisp’s duty is to live free.
Strength before weakness – All beings are weak at some time in their lives. The Wisp protects those who are weak, and uses his strength for others. Strength does not make one capable of rule; it makes one capable of service.
Journey before destination – There are always several ways to achieve a goal. Failure is preferable to winning through unjust means. Protecting ten innocents is not worth killing one. In the end, all men die. How you lived will be far more important to the Cause than what you accomplished.
I will protect those who cannot defend themselves.
I will protect even those I hate, as long as it is right.
I will be the Light.”
