His Late Highness Michinus Mirakonan (a.k.a. King Mich the Lich)
"King Michinus? Oh, you mean King Mich the Lich. Long dead, still alive, but he's up in that tower?"(This is still a work in progress)
General Physical Condition
An Undead high elven mage who seems to be more skin-wrapped bones in his grand death-robes and the diadem of a dead king, than an unliving powerhouse.
Depictions of his youth suggest he was a tall, pale-skinned High Elf with light brown hair and green eyes when he was alive.
Now, he has been undead for centuries, to the point where his skin is dried and shriveled and looks more like thin paper than skin wrapped around bones and sinew. The few times he has pulled back his near-iconic and seeming ever-present black hood, his hair is held back by a ceremonial diadem made of dark metals, as a contrast to his pale hair that still gives the slight hint of its former coloring. His eyes now are sunken and rotten out hollows lit by a green glow akin to enstatite.
He is rarely unaccompanied by shadows that billow and sway around him. When faster action is required, such as catching a stack of books before they fall, he may use the shadows to act in the place of himself, or use them to interact on his behalf with his surroundings. He rarely touches people with the shadows, however, as the shadows' appearance add to the unease many people feel from him and touching sets the people into an uneasy state.
Apparel & Accessories
He never, to anyone's memory, appears outside of the royal version of traditionalfrom his days of life, which the shadows of his form flow into and disguise any holes (if they were to even exist in the clothing of a powerful mage who was once a king) while providing him with more height.
His diadem is enchanted with various protection spells, though it has been suggested he had replaced the diamonds with GemScrolls stones where he has stored spells for other purposes. The gems have presumably found other uses in some way, somewhere, though few are brave (rude) enough to ask if the rumors are true in any way.
