 +**Personality and Description**\\ ​
 +----
 +Levantis is a quiet, unbecoming man. Worn smooth and fine over many years of bitter conflict behind the loud happenings of society. Drained of what ambitious fires once drove him to drastic ends, Levantis now keeps to himself and rarely speaks with anyone (save who he means to speak to.)
 +
 +Levantis is a tall elf, with long, vibrant black hair that looks violet when caught in light. His frame is thin, and his posture is proper. His eyes are a worn brown. After the revival of Nosgard'​s World Tree, Levantis'​ body looks refreshed and full of vim and vigor. It is as if someone urged his body into a second life.
 + 
 +
 +**Biography** \\
 +----
 +Levantis'​ history is long. Subjected to the destiny of his family line, Levantis grew up preparing and expecting his death. Sworn to guard Aurora from those that would exploit or harm it, Levantis was raised believing in making the ultimate sacrifice.
 +
 +Like many members of the Olim family Levantis joined the Ebony Eye as a Observer, ones that research and study dangerous magic.
 +
 +However, as he aged, he found a fear within him that was hidden or absent in his kin. A fear of death, or needless sacrifice. A fear of losing everything he was and had, for an ungrateful world. This fear became all the more grave, upon discovering hints to the rebirth of a terrible entity: Amdis.
 +
 +This fear was not shared with his wife, Tissanfonia Rhut, who opted to embrace the idea of Amdis' return. The two came to blows, and Levantis was defeated by a foul trick: his son, Rand, being taken hostage by Tissanfonia.
 +
 +Levantis had his own trick in mind, and trapped Tissanfonia'​s memories within the Ebony Coffer along with his son's. With his power-hungry wife docile, Levantis meditated upon what to do next.
 +
 +His estate fell into disrepair, and his research bordered illegal and insanity. He dived into forbidden spells, rituals, experiments that chilled one's living blood. The plans he crafted were crimes against sentient life. He found no way to stop or combat Amdis' return.
 +
 +Years passed with Levantis nearing his wits' end. The signs of Amdis' return were steadily becoming clearer. She was upon rebirth. In a drastic impulse, Levantis set out to create a method to match the Demon Queen'​s magical power.
 +
 +Crafting a Golem exactly in his likeness, Levantis tested to see if he could duplicate Tissanfonia'​s plan: to absorb enough Mana to become a Demon. It failed, thanks to a mutual effort between a group of adventurers and the fact a Golem Body could not withstand over-whelming amounts of Mana.
 +
 +Resigned to the end of things, Levantis waited for Amdis' rule to take hold. She was stopped by the combined efforts of Demons and the folk of Rune.
 +
 +Crestfallen,​ Levantis walked the world with feet weighed by his crimes. However, when Maraveah related to him about her dream and her calling back to Nosgard, Levantis offered to aid her how he could. Which he did, knowing full well what would happen to the charitable Nos woman.
 +
 +**Recent Development**\\
 +----
 +
 +  * With Maraveah and the Golems of Avidion safe, Levantis left the Vahk'​Sala for the final time. He turns to the rest of the world, deciding where his life might have worth.
 +  * At Maraveah'​s behest, Levantis has settled in Glastheim, and took a job as a Magic Instructor in service to Maruth.
 +  * He offered to join Maraveah on her quest to Nosgard, and safe-guarded her as best as he could.
 +  * He witnessed the rebirth of the World Tree, and the end of the Nosgard conflict which had carried on for so many years.
 +  * Levantis now minds Yalla and its archives, looking into various fragments and pieces of lore that might help him find his dream. He also helps tend the plants of Yalla.

 +**Relations**\\
 +----
 +
 +  * Father and Mother - //"You told me there was nothing more noble than sacrifice. I wish I took such to heart."//​
 +  * Rand Olim - //"My son. Do not forgive the crimes of your father. Learn from them, and live better knowing such."//​
 +  * Tissanfonia Rhut - //"My wife. Your skill and nature stole my focus, and heart. But a silver tongue can only remained untarnished for so long. May you find mercy, and love, as I have none left to give for you."//​
 +  * Maraveah - //"A brilliant mind, filled with hope and good-will. If only all could think just a faction as she, the world above and below would be better. And yet... she wanted, as I did. I still want, and so I will find a way to let her see her dream that came true."//​
 +  * Valkiar - //"You stole from me a way I thought would stop Amdis. I thought I killed you for it. I was wrong, for both things. I was wrong for things beyond those. Your memory weighs upon me like a mountain."//​
 +  * The ancestors of Anji - //"You welcomed me into your home. Fed me like I was a friend. Perhaps Maraveah'​s sentiment does spread beyond her."//​
 +  * Aren Tensard - //"A harsh and cold attitude may placate your Courts, but care not to lose yourself to such attitudes."//​
