Talon Reid (pronounced [tal-uh n reyd]) is an Arcanist from an alternate, magical Earth.
Appears to be an athletic, tall-ish human male in his early 20s. His electric blue eyes and the glowing locks of blue hair, along with a pair of blue, triangular markings on his cheeks, mark him as a magical being. Nearly always wears the same outfit, a t-shirt and jeans with a dark grey longcoat with a trim of gold thread.
At heart, Talon is a hero to the point of syndrome, always trying to save the day. This tendency plays well with his nature as a tremendous show-off, always looking to outdo his opponent and often in search of an interesting fight.
Early Life and the Old Gods Edit
Talon was born roughly 23 years ago to a magical father and a non-magical mother. He first displayed magical ability at age 7, slightly above average but not unusual, and received standardized magic training at school until age 10, when he first displayed early signs of his elemental abilities. From age 10 to 15, he lived with an old Orcish Shaman and his wife, who trained him to use his magic and in physical combat respectively. At age 15, he along with his childhood friend Scott , he entered into intensive training in order to become a Town Defense Team. Having chosen a third member, Zoey, the new Team was assigned to a town after a year of training, where they would begin constructing the tremendous home base known as Talon House. After about a year of operating normally with no major threats, a man claiming to be the god of magic appeared, intending to take others' magic in order to gain power over people who would not be able to defend themselves. Talon, only 17 at the time, chose to face down the man, whose name was Jason, alone. This foolish act of valor made it possible for the Earth Goddess to name him her Champion, possessing him and using her power to rip the magic from Jason, revealing that he was merely a former Champion of the Magic God who had gone rogue, destroying the Nameless God's intelligence and taking his power for his own.
The Alien and the Angel Edit
Sometime after the events of the battle with Jason, Talon met a new visitor. Though he appeared human, he showed incredible strength and speed and seemed to have no memory of where he had come from or how he had come to be there, though he did remember his own name, Dean.
At some unknown time prior to his arrival in the Crossroads, Talon became the Vessel of a being believing itself to be an angel, which reffered to itself as Talen.
Birth in Blood Edit
Upon his arrival in the Crossroads, called there by an old friend, Talon chose to participate in the Birth in Blood tournament. Throughout the rounds Talon proved mostly victorious, eventually netting him the win in the Final Round of the tournament and making him the overall winner of the tournament. As the tournament came to a close, a creature known as Nioyu appeared, attacking participants and spectators alike until the body of Karu L. Pop was destroyed. This caused a destabilization of the Crossroads, forcing Talon to give up the angel's power to keep the world whole.
