The Silent Mage

Ok, based off of my inquieryquestionarewhateveryouwanttocallit thing I did a few days ago soren is the character I will be writing about. if his story should continue in goddess of dawn,or “radient dawn” as its called now, you still can not list anything here about it, do to the spoiler rule.
soren is an otherwise quite individual who more often then not keeps to himself. only when he’s asked a question of importance will he share his opinions, however only a strict, to the point answer seems to be all he can spare.soren is the first one to warn the griel mercenaries of the Daien war,as he witnesses it first hand at the cremian royal library.sorens views are,as I said before,strict and to the point.he often says that the company should side with the winning side,despite their being in the wrong.this ofcoarse being because he is such a great stratagist that he always looks for the most profitable choice.
Sorens silence stems from the events of his childhood,from as far back as he can remember things were always difficult for him. he tells ike that he never knew his real parents, and that instead he was raised by a women who wasn’t at all fond of him.his real parents were either killed before he got to know them,or they simply abandoned him out of fear of what he was. both ideas are equally plausable,though neither are confirmed (I dont think they are anyway) .
as soon as the chance arrived the women taking care of soren gave him up.her chance came when she was visited by a great sage,who after seeing the mark on sorens head,asumed that he was marked by a spirit charmer, and as such possessed great magical abilitys.what the sage didn’t know however was that the mark wasn’t from a spirit charmer, but a birthmark of sorts.thats what soren thought it was, a simple birthmark,but in reality it was the branded mark, the sign that the individual in question is both human and laguz.the sage was old,and knew that his time was coming soon.his only wish was to pass his skills onto an apprentice.
soren became the sage’s aprentice,and in a short time learned more then the average human would have,given the same amount of time (but then,he’s not an average human is he ^_^ ? ) . unfortunately for soren the sage knew there was little time and had soren train day and night. soren said he hadn’t even enough time to think about who he was.
eventually the sage died, and after all the supplies that the sage had owned were used up soren began to wander. in time he came across civilization,as well as a shocking truth; no one had ever taught him how to speak.he was alone in a strange land with no way of saying what he needed. he would have died if not for the Griel mercenaries finding him and taking him to safety. soren tells ike that the worst of his problems was that he was a branded, and that the sage lived in Galia.as a result no one would aid him,only adding to his seemingly inevitable fate.
soren might appear to be a child, or at the very most Ikes age, however he is actually much older.the branded age differently then beorc and laguz,so his age and his appearance have nothing to do with each other. Stephen tells soren that someday his “friends” would know him for what he really was, and that at that time he should know he had friends in the desert.ike however dosn’t care what soren is,and tells him he would always be his friend .Soren is most likely a beast tribe branded,as ike points out that he always knows where hes going,despite it being a new area and everything looking the same.
