|Family||Alcor Telos (Younger Brother)|
Cornell is a professor at Pyron Magic Academy who has been collaborating with the Sahar. Born into an esteemed family of wizards, Cornell's only passion in life is the pursuit of knowledge on magic. Cornell defected to the Sahar army for two reasons; Archane’s past experiments with magical potential interested him, and the Sahar would be able to provide him with far more research opportunities than his current job ever could.
Tasked with the jobs of eliminating any possible threats to the Sahar found at the academy, as well as providing the Sahar with some prisoners and/or test subjects for experimentation, Cornell fulfills both jobs by simply abducting any students who may potentially pose a significant problem to the Sahar. As he is seen as one of the more popular and reliable teachers at the academy, he is trusted by a large percentage of the faculty and students, and thus, it is quite easy for him to lure students away into a trap.
To the public, Cornell is the epitome of the ideal teacher. Polite, amiable, and understanding, his office is always open for students to come in and ask him for help or advice should they need it. He’s managed to win the trust of many people with this persona.
However, underneath the mask, Cornell is nothing but a cold, immoral, and manipulative person only concerned with his own interests. Judging others solely based on their usefulness to him and/or whether they may interfere with his ambitions, he often heartlessly discards anything and anyone he deems worthless or boring.
Highly knowledgeable about a good deal of things, Cornell is primarily motivated by an intense thirst for knowledge. His sole passion in life is the study of magic, thus he often devotes the majority of his spare time to investigating and learning whatever he can. Whether it be by browsing through the academy’s library’s newest books, or helping with cruel experiments conducted by the Sahar, he's satisfied as long as he can further his own selfish ambitions. Preferring data collection and analysis over fighting, he tries to avoid battle when possible, but won’t back down if forced to fight.
Without his obsession for magic knowledge, Cornell would simply be an empty man with no purpose in life, who fails to connect with others because he doesn't understand them.
Cornell has fair skin, and short dark violet hair cut into an asymmetric style with his bangs swept to the side. He has light blue eyes that often seem blank at times, giving off the impression that he's bored or uninterested.
Cornell's usual attire consists of a long white coat over an indigo and grey shirt with a popped up collar, as well as black pants, and brown boots. He wears two belts around his waist that have pouches attached to hold some of his personal belongings.
Abilities + Weapons
Highly knowledgeable about magic due to being trained in it from a young age by his family as well as often researching in his spare time, Cornell specializes in ice magic and magic based on hindering or weakening the opponent, but is best at the latter. While Cornell often makes use of his ice magic when teaching classes at the academy, his skill in status ailment magic is known only by the Sahar. Although his magic makes him best suited to supporting a someone else in battle, Cornell is fully capable of holding his own in a fight if he must. By constantly casting spells to weaken, stun, or otherwise hinder with his opponent various status effects before sending his ice magic flying, Cornell is rather troublesome to face in battle, especially if one does not have a a way to quickly remove his various non-ice spells.
Although Cornell possesses knowledge of healing and lightning magic as well, most of it is theory-based knowledge rather than practical battle experience, thus, he usually only puts that knowledge to use when teaching classes.
Cornell uses a grimoire as a focus for his magic.
- He is fond of taking walks around Terminus during the evening or night to relax.
- Cornell has a bad habit of hoarding knick-knacks and other random objects he has little to no use for, often under the excuse that he may need them in the future. In stark contrast to his brother, Cornell's house is a mess.
