Early Life Edit
Cliff was born outside of phoenix pass in a small village known as Stillwater. It was there he learned how to Cast Magic. However He always felt that the teachings were wrong and that it shouldn't be about how much power one possesses but about the agreement of shared power between the caster and the Natural world. As Such he began his own research into magic and how to Cast spells. He learned that Society strayed away from the ancient teachings that had once been Relevant throughout the world Thousands of years ago that required the use of Spell Components. These Components were Items Gathered from the natural world such as Sulfur or Nightshade. When used to Cast Spells the Magic would be drawn from the Materials then the user giving each spell a little Extra Power. Satisfied with his research and understanding of this Ancient practice he Began his quest to Create more spells with the help of the natural World.
However during his Quest he had come across an Old Book that had been sitting around for what seemed like a millennium. As he had Opened the book and began to read its Contents the Words Flowed from the book and into his mind Teaching him an Ancient and Powerful spell that was once lost and Forgotten. After his Encounter with this book he was Excited and wanted to test this spell out immediately. While He had understood what it did he failed to realize the Scope of its Power but Cast it anyway. After Casting the spell for the First time he felt his body Ache in Pain as all of his magical Energy was ripped from his body to Fuel the Spell. After the spell had been Cast Cliff was Blown away by the Impact of the spells Power and was Sent Flying over the edge of a Cliff. After being Rescued by a couple of Brigands, they offered him a job of being their 'Loremaster' he accepted seeing opportunities in what they had to offer and from there he went to Phoenix Pass with these men and they were recruited by The Defias Gang. While there Cliff had gained access to plenty of Material Components as the Thieves hard barely any use for them so For Cliff this was quite the boon. While he was never given any real good opportunities to Test his spells he still tested and created the Spells he now holds in his arsenal. As the Gangs Motives began to waver Cliff has been more than happy to gather everything that would be useful for his attempt to Escape before he would become liable for the Terrible Wrongs that the Gang had Committed with his help.
