Karas was born on in the city of Lacynos his father Raxas was a member of
the royal guard and large even by minotaur standards.Growing up Karas unlike
his father showed almost no aptitude for martial combat the only weapon he
seemed able to grasp even the most basic use of was the dagger. From an
early age Karas was far more interested in the study of magic but his father
forbade him from pursuing the study of what he called a cowards way. 

Karas refusing to give up his passion would save up money and start sneaking
out at night taking trips into the market looking for anything and anyone
that could help him learn. One night he got a message from his friend Tyklo
at the magic shop as he reached for the door of the shop he heard the voice
of his friend and another he did not recognize talking. "Has the boy arrived
yet?" said the stranger. "Not yet im afraid but worry not im sure he will be
here." replied Tyklo. "Your certain he has the talent?" asked the man "Yes
yes im sure of it he has great potential but is in need of instruction."
said Tyklo. "Ah it seems our guest has arrived." the man said before
throwing open the door and dragging Karas inside. 

"Release me this instant!" demanded Karas. Chuckling the man dropped him to
the floor, "Well he has spirit I like that." said the man. "Calm down Karas
this is a friend of mine we have been waiting for you." Tyklo said. "Karas I
would like to introduce you to Xanderel Autumnstar." Tyklo said motioning to
the man standing above Karas. "Greetings Karas our mutual friend here says
you fancy yourself a mage." "What business is that of yours you old goat?"
muttered Karas. "KARAS SHOW SOME RESPECT!" Tyklo snapped. 

Laughing Xanderel said "Thats quite alright my friend I like his fire."
Chuckling the man said "Well young one lets see what you can do strike me
down use your magic or are you afraid of a silly old goat?" Karas growled
standing up he cast a magic missle spell at the man only to watch in
amazement as the bolts of energy bounced of an invisible shield and returned
the way they came forcing Karas to dive to the floor. Looking up Karas saw
Xanderel smiling and offering him a hand. "I will be leaving in the morning
if you want to come along and learn how to properly use your power your
welcome to come along." Karas reached up and took the old mans hand. Thus
began Karas's apprenticeship to Xanderal Autumnstar and the start of his new
