Full Description
Janus is an attractive young human female. She has pale skin and ginger hair, but a smooth complexion (very few freckles). Also different from her standard human appearance, she has pointed furred ears like those of a lynx, and a long feline tail of a solid color, like a cougar's. There's a certain unplaceable alieness to her though, the robes she frequently wears have runes embroidered that almost seem comprehensible.

- Items
  • - Tome of Knowledge
    Her primary magical item: This is a magical tome that is generally uncomfortable for most to look at. Janus can read the contents just fine, but when most other people try reading it, it seems to be saying bits they can understand, but together comes out as gibberish. The contents constantly change. The book is very tightly magically bound to Janus, almost like it's a part of her. If she gets more than 30 or so feet from it, it vanishes and reappears on her person. It teaches her many magical secrets.

    It's possible for others to benefit from this, but to be able to comprehend the book, they must form a strong magical connection with Janus. The stronger the bond, the more comprehensible the contents. To this end, Janus has found that being bound as a familiar (Or binding someone as her familiar) creates a strong enough bond to work. When the other subject has this bond and uses most of Janus' senses, the book reads like an extremely well written text book on some subject the reader is familiar with, allowing them to expand their knowledge. A weaker connection is still comprehensible, but then tends to read like a more poorly written or jargon-laden book.
- Weapons
  • - Wands
    Using wandlore learned from her tome, Janus has crafted several wands that are specialized to certain spells. Her main spells are:

    Fire: Janus can shoot firebolts, or use more power to shoot explosive fireballs or create waves or walls of flames.
    Rift: Janus can teleport a short distance (as per the spell dimension door)
    Transmute: Janus can cast polymorph, albeit to a limited degree and without upkeep, it'd only last an hour or two.
    Shield: Janus can create a shield in one direction that she can maintain, or an omnidirectional shield that collapses in a few seconds. It can be overwhelmed, but could potentially stop a few bullets or magic attacks.
  • - The Storm
    This is a magical sword that Janus has created using an extremely complicated and time consuming process called aspect infusion. She distilled the concept of "sharpness" from hundreds of lesser blades (Mass produced razor blades really) and applied it all onto this light rapier. The result is a blade which is so sharp, it shears electrons from their atoms, which tends to produce sparks as the sword is swung through the air. Though the effect is not enough to split atomic nuclei, the edge is so effective because it has a leading edge of magic, with the dedicated effect of "part anything along this plane." It never needs to be sharpened, and can cut through most armor like butter. It's not quite as effective as a lightsaber, since there does still need to be the force to physically separate whatever is being cut.

Skills & Abilities
- Language Fluency
  • Eldritch (Written only)
  • English
- Education History
  • Bachelors in Mathematics
- Noncombat Skills
  • - Various crafts
    Janus' higher magic possibilities (alchemy and infusion) require mechanisms, so Janus has picked up basic levels of metalworking, glassworking, and goldsmithing (for enchanted baubles). Some of this is from classes, some of it is techniques she learned from the Tome.
- Comb Training/Skills/Experience
  • - Blade training
    Upon figuring out that she could create enchanted weapons, Janus took up the occasional class with adventurers on swordplay. She's not really ready at a competitive level, but now knows how to handle a blade well enough.

Paranormal AbilitiesBackground

World Information:
Standard Earth

Character Background:
Initially, Janus lead a fairly unremarkable life on Earth, growing up around the turn of the millenium and going to college. Janus was a boy back on Earth, but that changed when a red breach pulled him from his old life and onto old infinitas. The change made Janus a girl, and a young one at that, only 10 years old. It also manifested the tome she's familiar with. Janus initially got herself aged up (And had her feline features added as a bonus) and began working while studying the tome, its call irresistible. She initially made little progress, but when she reached the section on wand lore is when she really began making major progress. She's since signed up with the Mages guild, and has been able to make a living by letting others read from her tome, the knowledge within is highly valuable to any who wish to expand their horizons.
