Apostles Lore: Layraumo

Posted by Jon Wood on Nov 01, 2005  | Comments

Apostles Lore: Layraumo - Dark and Light -

Dark and Light has released some brand new lore. This story focuses on a character named, Layraumo. Layraumo is a half-elven sorcerer:

Layraumo, the Half Elf Sorcerer

(By Xav the Talkative, freelance journalist - payment by the line - working for the "Drum of Ganareth", a monthly bulletin released every now and then - but certainly not every month - in Al Drifa; also sold at the best news-agents throughout Ganareth)

Being a half-breed isn’t always easy, at least as long as you think of this double origin as a curse, rather than realize it is actually a double advantage! What led Layraumo towards wizardry? His difficult childhood in the forests of the First kingdom, perhaps? If this is the case, All the Elves who laughed at his ears because they were not pointy enough, or Humans who laughed at his skin which was too dark, can all pride themselves on having created one of the most powerful spell casters of all times. Sometimes, roses do grow on dung...

Layraumo’s first desire was to teach those those who had laughed at him a well-deserved lesson. Since nature didn’t give him physical strength, he thought he would rely on the strength of his mind. He learnt by reading books, and focused so much on his studies that his head was always ready to explode. All by himself, he succeeded in casting minor spells, such as a sudden outbreak of boils on your face, or a little rock in your shoe. Because of Layraumo, this became a time of much scratching and limping around the forests of the First Kingdoms. Oddly enough, it seemed that those clumsy Humans and proud Elves who teased Layraumo were the main victims of these unexplained events.

Then came Skaarelius, the Immortal Sorcerer. We can safely say that Skaarelius felt the waves of magic around young Layraumo, and he also felt the potential hidden behind this young being’s experiments (just between you and me, a young person who does not have a single spot on their face when everyone else does, tends to stand out even to non-immortals). Skaarelius came to the forest and watched him for a long time. Then, as a distraction, he summoned a flame right in front of the young Half Elf’s face. His reaction surprised him: Layraumo stretches his hands and tried to tame this magical fire, and didn’t seem to care about catching fire at all. The great sorcerer could not but smile at such a bold display of courage. He stepped out of the shadow. Layraumo didn’t seem surprised at all: "I have been waiting for you for a long time. I have felt your power getting closer..."

They got along so well that if he didn’t have so many adventures to go on, and so many secrets to teach his other disciples, Skaarelius would have adopted Layraumo as his son. Alas, he could only spend a few months with him. His pupil, however, was so talented that even so short a period of time allowed him to learn the most powerful spells. He was doing great in every area, although he showed an inclination towards spells that could affect his enemies, making them believe that their skin was on fire, that they were paralyzed or that their hair had grown so much that they were trapped inside: memories of his youth, probably...

Skaarelius also taught Layraumo to be proud of himself and of his exceptional double legacy he got from his Elf father and his Human mother: the legacy of two great civilizations. Then the great sorcerer departed: the disciple knew almost as much as his master by then.

It is said that Layraumo wandered through the Kingdoms, chasing evil dooers, especially those who threatened the weaker with words or weapons, or who despised them because they were different. Some say that he spread many magical objects and formulae for those who would walk his righteous path of tolerance, and that only those with a pure heart would be able to find and use them...

There is a place called Layraumo Fuin, or Layraumo’s Darkness, where there may be clues to be found, if the right questions are asked. But cautiousness is advised: Dark and Light seekers often come across each other there, and when they meet, they usually don’t send love letters to each other, if you get my meaning...
