"But the most terrible agony may not be in the wounds themselves but in knowing for certain that within an hour, then within ten minutes, then within half a minute, now at this very instant – your soul will leave your body and you will no longer be a person, and that is certain; the worst thing is that it is certain." Fyodor Dostoyevsky (The Idiot, 1869)
The ancient mage known only as Karathas was born within the ancient city of Oranbega, the circumstances of his birth are unknown, and Karathas himself has referred to such details as insignificant. What is known is that he was once one of the numerous Sorcerer-Kings of Oranbega, whether to a minor or major degree has been unable to be determined, however Karathas seems to imply he was someone of particular power and influence. Whether the madness mage can be trusted is up for debate, but there is also little in terms of sources to say otherwise.

Badge_event_halloween2010_blue.png Powers and Abilities Badge_event_halloween2010_blue.png

  • HfySuSs.png Incorporeality Being a ghost, when Karathas's wicked essence is not within a mortal body, he is incorporeal.
  • UmbralAura BlackDwarf.png Possession Karathas is capable of possessing another person, this requires a mental struggle between Karathas and the individual he is attempting to possess. For this reason, he tends to favor those of remarkably weak will, or those who have slipped into are in a coma.
  • InherentBase_Book.png Spellcasting As a Madness Mage of the Circle, Karathas is capable of casting various spells of differing abilities, from the ability to fly to turning foes against each other.

Badge_event_halloween2010_red.png Weakness Badge_event_halloween2010_red.png

  • LuminousAura LightForm.png Exorcism As a ghost, Karathas's connection to the mortal plane is tenuous at best, a proper exorcism right can break his grip on his current body or cast a hostless Karathas back into the Astral Plane for a short time.
  • StaffFighting FormoftheSoul.png Magic - Perhaps quite ironically, the mage's greatest tool is also one of his greatest weaknesses. He is more vulnerable to magic, particularly without a host body to take the hit.
  • DarknessControl_ShadeScare.png Necromancy Given his undead nature, Karathas is susceptible to the sways of the necromantic arts. A talented necromancer can potentially draw him out of a vessel, and take control of him.
  • IKJokE0.png Mortal Coil Karathas is an unnatural entity within the body of a mortal, as such until the body dies, he is vulnerable to conventional mortal things: knives, poison, guns, and so on.

Equipment

  • Salvage_Spells.png Karathas's Tome A compendium of notes, procedures, rituals, and spells.
  • Salvage_Cloak.png Magus Robes
  • Salvage_HellishTooth.png Spirit Thorn A thorn from the Thorn Tree, this is the Circle of Thorn's (And by extension, Karathas's) main form of possession. The thorn, when thrust into the heart of a mage by their own hand, transfer Karathas's soul into the body, imprisoning the other's mage within the thorn. This particular thorn is currently lodged within the heart of his current vessel.
