The Goddess KnightsOn one of his rare trips into town, Kalheim noticed something was wrong with the mages tower. Upon closer inspection, the building was flooded with Shades. Kalheim wanted to help, but knew going in risked him being caught. Regardless, he took the risk and ran in to defend the other mages. At the end of the battle, Kalheim attempted to escape unnoticed, but ran directly into the Goddess Knights who were also in the building fight the shades off. At first the Knights were confrontational at the suspicious looking mage, but when given the chance to explain himself, their leader Sarah was impressed and astonished that he risked so much to protect people. Despite being cast out by his community, he still felt the need to help them. Sarah offered Kalheim a chance to redeem himself in the eyes of the Empire by joining the Knights. He accepted only on the condition that Sherry would be made a Knight too. Sarah found the request odd, but accepted none-the-less. Kalheim's was pardoned on his crimes against the magic community and served the Knights along side Sherry for many years.
DeathShortly after the deaths of Knights Faellen and Nelleaf Ramifus, there was an unexpected attack on the Goddess Knights head quarters by a mysterious man introducing himself only as Malice. Kalheim and Sherry attempted to hold back the demons while the others evacuated the building, but Malice was far too strong for them and completely wrecked Kalheim in a one on one fight. While on the ground, Malice set Kalheim on fire using his powers, burning him alive. As Kalheim passed, the connection between him and Sherry was severed, the only thing to spare her from fading away, was for someone else to take over as her master.
Likes & Dislikes
Virtues & PerksKalheim is a very intelligent and was talented mage, possibly even the smartest of the whole team. He is a master problem solver, if a bit of a trickster. He's very passionate about his interests and is the type who could go on and on for hours over a subject he was interested in. Despite his interest in death, he has a good heart and won't hurt someone for no reason. He often has good intentions for his actions and wants to help, even if to some means of doing this is morally questionable.
Vices & FlawsKalheim has pretty poor social skills is pretty terrible at reading and mimicking social queues. His behavior can come off as creepy and off putting to someone who isn't used to him, as his interest in the macabre can start to sound obsessive and feishizing. He is an enigma of a man who is difficult to understand. He tends to be rude and snarky to others when he's in a bad mood, which makes keeping friendly relationships even harder. He also struggles with a bit of an addiction to potions.
Motivation & ConflictFor a long time Kalheim only cared about his research and his hobbies, but after meeting Sherry, he felt a strong urge to make sure she was happy and loved. This also meant making sure the world was a better place for the two of them to exist. He also felt guilty, knowing how often his experiments have put the two of them in danger.
Towards Sherry Eckstein
Towards Kalheim Aedian
Kalheim found Sherry's body on the side of a mountain decades after she had frozen to death there. The ice had kept her body perfectly preserved and her appearance was so striking for Kalheim that he knew this was who he wanted to bring back from the grave. After several long, grueling weeks, Sherry opened her eyes for the first time and saw Kalheim. The first thing she asked was to be taken somewhere warm. Kalheim brought her to his dorm in the Mages tower and told her about how he brought her back from the dead and how he was technically her master, but he didn't want to force her to do his bidding or anything. Sherry, confused as she lacked memories of her previous life, simply went along with it. Kalheim and Sherry would talk to each other a lot, as neither of them really had anyone else to talk to, as Sherry was kept hidden, and Kalheim had no friends. They discussed interests, views on life, worked on experiments together, and tried to piece together Sherry's past. The two formed a close bond over time. Sometime had passed when Sherry was discovered by another student. The school threatened to have Kalheim arrested and his thrall killed, but in a last ditch effort to protect Sherry, the two of them ran away together to a secret location deep in the mountain. Kalheim was very protective of Sherry, and only let her go out to go get supplies from town. One of these trips to town, they found the tower was being attacked by shades, and against his better judgment, Kalheim decided to help. It was here he commanded Sherry to fight for the first time, and was amazing by the extent of her powers. After risking themselves to help the mages, Kalheim and Sherry joined the Godess Knights, where they were able to make connections and friendships with other people. However, after the attack on the headquarters years later, Kalheim would be killed and his bond with Sherry broken. To stop her from fading away, Malice took his place as her new master, wiping her memories and forcing her to attack her former friends.
Relationship DescriptionKalheim was infatuated Sherry the moment he saw her. He would do anything for her to make sure she was safe and happy. Every time she was hurt, he'd be right there to mend her wounds and give her kind words of encouragement. Even in death, in his afterlife, he cares for Sherry and is desperate to reunite with her and make sure she's okay. Sherry felt the same to Kalheim. She had experienced a traumatic death, and he was to one to reach in and pull her from that deep dark abyss of death. She literally owed him her life, and would sacrifice herself for him, if he'd let her. However, after her memories were wiped by Malice, she had no memories of Kalheim. And with them, her feeling for him also disappeared, his name meaning nothing to her outfit of a clue to piecing together her already fragmented and warped memories.
Towards Kalheim Aedian
Towards Johan Forlorn
Johan was uneasy about Kalheim joining the team from the very start. Him being a dark magic user and a necromancer, to things that did not mix with Johan's beliefs. They two did not get along well at all for a long time, Johan found Kalheim's careless personality grating at times, and Kalheim got annoyed at Johan's preachy nature. Kalheim would often do things to purposely get on his nerves. Johan would try to stop some of Kalheim's more destructive bad habits, like his abuse of potent mana potions, and his tenancy not to sleep. The two butted heads more than anyone in the group, but Johan couldn't convince himself to hate Kalheim. So when Kalheim perished at the hands of a demon attack on their base, Johan was horrified and felt deep guilt and sorrow for being unable to help him.
