Ignati von Carnadin, Forsaken Mage Edit
|Ignati||Feathermoon||Mage||30||The Undead Legion|
Ignati von Carnadin is an aloof man with an air of superiority and a marked disdain for outsiders. Passionate and somewhat headstrong, he prefers the less meticulous dealings of Fire magic.
34 years at time of death
Ignati grew up with the best grooming and society his noble family could afford, which is quite a lot. Throughout his life he was always the object of young women's fantasies - indeed, he engaged quite a few of them in midnight trysts.
Ignati first met his future wife, Galean Brenault, when they met on the docks of Southshore on a particularly rainy day. Though she was already soaked to the skin, he offered her his own cloak for shelter, and they were soon both drenched. They spent a little time together at the inn and even travelled back to Dalaran together before parting ways. Ignati was immediately stricken by her beauty - Galean by his gentlemanly charm (and position in society). Ignati was also stricken with a cold, and his frail constitution had his father worried - though the true cause of Ignati's fever would have to remain a secret.
Galean's mentor was, it turns out, a family friend of the noble house of von Carnadin, and it is through the occasional parties and dinners Ignati was able to meet with and woo her. Their first night together again was filled with much passion - Ignati spared no effort in quietly leaving the party with Galean in tow, taking her into his chambers. For the longest time, this is how they carried on, expressing their love in secret.
This tumultuous peace collapsed when Ignati announced that he would not marry his cousin whom his family had arranged for him to wed. Even more chaos was stirred up when he announced and introduced the woman he was to marry - Galean. It was not only his cousin who was dismayed, but the myriad bachelorettes of society that had their eyes on him for the longest time - though truth be told, they knew of his secret rendezvous long before his announcement.
Some say that she did the wooing - the fact that someone of such irrevocably low birth had married so far up was a slap in the face, and a blemish on the nobility. Ignati's family always disliked Galean extremely, but never mistreated her for fear of estranging the last heir in the family. And so Ignati and Galean were able to freely express their devotion and passion for one another within the bonds of matrimony.
When he awoke in the Shadow Grave of Deathknell, his ring had long been gone - any jewelry left on stolen corpses was taken and used in furthering the Forsaken's efforts. Much of his memory of his former life had also left him, save for his intense hatred of the Kirin Tor and his scholarly mastery for the Mage arts. Without his memories he would become another pawn for Forsaken, but as fate would have it...
Stepping out of the Shadow Grave, he remembered some bit of what was left of his humanity, Galean in particular. Confident that she had survived the transition to undeath, he set out searching for her throughout Azeroth. On the way, he befriended a lady warlock by the name of Delial, an eloquent woman whose mannerisms only further spurred his desire to see his wife again. He eventually discovered Galean was working as a clerk in Brill, and they have since made every effort to reacquaint themselves.
More to come.
