Non-canon (roleplay) Character Background.Edit
Niar'suru was belonged to a family of middle class artisans known as the Loruglasse (he changed his family name to Sekai upon its formation.) The Loruglasse were somewhat well known for using a mana affinity known as empathy to read the desires of their clients, but when it came time to test his affinity it was discovered that Niar's latent abilities were quite weak.
His grandmother, the Loruglass matriarch, abused Niar as child using her empathy as a method of "toughening him up". This led him to become emotionally withdrawn as a child and to have a deep rooted hatred for all who try to justify their spiteful actions as being "good for people in the long run." However the rest of Niar'suru's family cared deeply for him and did their best to shield him from his grandmother's ire. When he became a young adult, he was sent to train under a master portrait artist in order to further his own artistic abilities, as well as to get him away from his grandmother. While he was studding there Niar'suru met two drow who would become his best friends.
When Shifaye'sindil fell almost everyone Niar'suru knew was slain, including the most of his family and at least one of his friends. The only one who might have made it out was his other friend but Niar had no way of knowing whether she survived. Having little incentive to stay, Niar'suru fled with An'jhali's group.
Niar joined the healers out of desire to help people, as his empathy and his personality makes him sensitive to the suffering of others. For a while many people joked that since the nurses "only consisted only of beautiful women" that meant Niar was secretly female (due to his androgynous appearance.)
Niar has a somewhat eccentric sense of humor due to his disdain for personal drama and his honest desire for those around him to be happy. However, when someone close to him is threatened or he's pushed too far, he develops a aggressively vindictive personality against whomever has slighted him or his own.
Niar has recieved training from Ilrae in learning how to better control his empathy. As his abilities grew, Niar discovered that for some reason his form of empathy seems to attract insects of all kinds. Thus he can often be seen in the midst of a large swarm insects, much to the discombobulation of those around him.
