The Chronicles of Anglarthea - The Legend of the Sages Stone
Fire Mage, and founding member of the Council of 7 Sya is a stern hard man. he’s ages well into his 60’s maybe older (there have always been rumors surrounding him about a pact with demons, hence the reason he can bend flames to his will and rumored long life) He looks for perfection and is very demanding of everyone he deal with. He is often at ends with Hina Grey about the council’s role in the kingdom feeling they should take a stake in ruling vs advising, and has been extremely vocal about this. You remember from your youth that he really didn’t have very many friends. Most people in court dislike him, with the Exception of who is the closest thing he has to a friend.
