Character Information


Hermetic Magician whose area of study is raw mana and the manipulation of it, exploring and improving the fundamentals is how entirely new things are discovered. Eli keeps to himself and his nearby circle mostly, this isn't due to being a *total* social recluse oddball, between his studies and doing whatever jobs to make ends meet, the small amount of time for recreation and exploring new things is limited. If you knew him from work or passing by normally, you'd take him for a stoic straight-lace, and there's some truth to it as the Hermetic tradition is quite structured and orderly. However he also has loose side and will take frequent visits to "The Daze" bar to clear his mind of formulae this and theory that.

(Uses Hermetic Elementals Option)


  • Achieve Self Perfection
    • "Perfection is impossible, therefore the true meaning is to always improve, and my magic is when I actually started living, so let's cultivate that first and foremost."
  • Establish Self Sustaining Lifestyle
    • "I can't truly focus on pushing the magical boundaries when I constantly have to worry about rent or my next meal, there must be some solution..."
  • Ensure breakthroughs survive for future generations
    • "While keeping one's best secrets while living is important for further advancement, it's a terrible waste for the knowledge to die with you."
  • Repay Alessa
    • "She helped me get my life started, I'll likely never be able to thank her enough, but I sure can try"
  • Find trustworthy peers
    • "Sadly the path to high magic is nearly suicidal alone, but mage society is always at each-others throats, this chaos is impossible to isolate and exposes even more variables and risks, but I need a few comrades to clear astral barriers with. Hopefully we'll keep sight of the bigger picture..."
  • Evolution?
    • "I wonder if there's a way to break the confines of reality in a way... To move to a higher form of sorts... Very unlikely, but then again this is magic we're talking about, maybe I'll see a possibility in the future."


Eli, before taking up the moniker of 'Aristotle' was much further down on his luck than he is today. Growing up as a young elf in the wrong area to do that to you. Between being kicked around by the other poor kids for being the only local elf in the group, and having to do random courrier jobs in place for one of his parents in order to help make ends meet, Eli found himself briefly meeting all kinds of people and often kicked around by corrupt cops. One time he got jumped by a local troublemaker who was trying to steal the package, luckily Eli was already near the dropoff point and thus managed to grab the package and run. Making it to 'The Daze' to turn the package into Alessa P, though obviously scuffed up, the package itself was in pristine condition. After being paid and given a cheap drink as 'hazard pay', Eli took a moment to enjoy the atmosphere in this little punk den. Between frequent deliveries and just enjoying the place, Eli became a regular, often chatting up with Alessa whenever the place was having a slow day. When he became an Awakaned person, Alessa offered him a deal to help him both land better jobs but also utilize his talents, with a little bit of risk of course. Eli, while hesitant, didn't see anywhere but up from his family's squatter life style, and took the offer. Alessa hooked him up with a commlink with material to get him down his path, but also introduced him to a Talismonger 'Aunty Nuyen', along with being his gateway for any jobs in the runner sphere. A few jobs in he managed to get enough to afford a shabby appartment nearby, and has established himself well within the hermetic tradition. His dedication to the basics of magic though has earned some teasing among some past colleagues for being 'old school', one time a troll said Eli was like an 'Aristotle' that he heard in a trid movie once, and the name stuck. The rest is history
