"The Archmagi represent the pinnacle of magical power. Weaving their intricate enchantments, these crotchety old wizards are called upon to defend humanity with all the magical powers at their disposal. Mounted atop their trusty steeds, the Archmagi brandish ancient staves that serve to channel their fierce energies in battle. Though gruff and slightly aloof, these experienced wizards are a heartening sight upon any battlefield where the fate of humanity lies in peril." - Warcraft III

General Introduction

Venerable and ancient, Sir Aetyleus the Elder (Born Aetyleus of the House of Ardalan, January 4th, -98 B.D.P.) is an Archmage of the Kirin Tor. Renowned as a brilliant scholar within the magical and alchemical community, Aetyleus' wisdom, guidance, and council is often sought by the leaders and magi of the Grand Alliance and the Magocracy of Dalaran. Profoundly skilled in use of Transmutation, Abjuration, and Evocation, as well as demonstrating a moderate-to-high proficiency in the other schools of Arcane Magic, the Archmage has served among the ranks of the original Conjurers of Stormwind and Mages' Guild during his long and fruitful life.

Description

The Archmage is typically adorned in the formal and traditional wears of the older generations of magi, which consists of long flowing robes and a pointed hat accented with a shirt, tie, dress pants, and polished shoes. His pale complexion could probably be used as a mirror to those who got close enough. Eyes laid sunken within their sockets and dull in appearance, the elder stood a measly five-foot seven-inches with a slight hunch. Noticeable to those familiar with the man, Aetyleus walked with a slight limp in his left leg, having to rely heavily upon his staff for quick mobility. His forehead was decorated with deep wrinkles when he spoke and gestured, rising and falling like the tide of the sea.

His attire was rich in vibrant color and crafted from artisan Stormwindian tailors with the finest fabrics available. Lined heavily with pockets, Aetyleus keeps many of his personal keepsakes, trinkets, and other reagents stowed away on his person for if their need should ever arise. It would be an incredibly uncommon sight to see the elder wizard without his signature pointed hat as it was one of his most prized articles of clothing. On his left ring finger, were one would normally wear a wedding band, instead rested an old bronze Kirin Tor Signet Ring, a parted gift from a dear friend and Magocracy Senator from times since passed.
