A Sea of Crystal Spheres
An aging, academic magician with an interest in Planar travel.
Professor Arturo Maximus as a young man showed much promise and natural ability for study. His skills and interest in the academic subjects: Nature, Religion, Dungeoneering and of course Arcana led him across the world, discovering new things and occasionally applying his knowledge for the betterment of others. Over the course of his life he earned several prestigious rewards for various papers he published as well as awards for helping people, earning him some reknown as a hero among both scholars and the normal folk, whom he had used his sizable intellect to help in times of need. However, during his travels he’d become enamoured with the idea of Planar travel and the posiblity of travel to other Material Plane, postulating that they must exist and that in fact the entire Planar sphere was perhaps just one sphere of a Hyper-Planar reality. His new theories took him back to the universities where he spent his time studying and theorising in a sort of self-imposed early retirement, lecturing new students on various things to pay for his room and board at the university.
