megalomania
original dark fantasy
Practice of Sedition
In a world built upon a foundation of conflict, the past year has been notably violent. As Crux Fidelis, the Crusaders and ruling faction of Sium, suffer heavy losses from a particularly bloody Aphelion, other factions are emboldened to take action. Despite being allies, Weltschmerz's ambitious and duplicitous nature sees them taking bigger risks which threaten to break their alliance. All the while, Apocrypha continues to gain public sympathy and support while the Black Sun Cabal and Poena Damni continue to wreak havoc. As Sium races towards yet another conflict, it’s evident that yet another war lurks on the horizon.

Potions- Potions are created through many complex formulas that had mostly be used for medicinal and commercial needs though very few mages use potions for combat due to their limited amount of potions they can use and generally how expensive it is to procure the ingredients necessary.

However those who have mastered the art of potion brewing are known for being powerful, versatile mages. The abilities that a potion can grant the user are nearly infinite and they make for amazing support units due their versatility. Even the same potion can have a different effect depending how it is used although the effects tend to not be positive. For example, a potion whose magical scent is meant to wake up those who are under sleep magic can be poisonous if it is consumed.

Drinking or injecting certain potions will allow him to use a certain kind of magic depending on the potion. These potions contain high concentration of Sillage and for a short amount of time, Krieger can it, but only one potion at a time. If he took another before the initial potion wore off then it would kill him.

The weakness is that he can only bring so many at a time.

Cain and Abel- They are a pair of mechanical gauntlets he created. Their first purpose is to act as storage for vials of potions he brings with him. Their second function is to inject those vials of potions into his bloodstream. Their final function is that since Krieger struggles to control the powers that come from the potions, they also act as a conduit to focus his power and use it efficiently so he does not use it all at once.

abilities
Potions Master- Despite his young age, Krieger is extremely skilled in creating potions. However that skill stems from extensive knowledge from other academics ranging from chemistry to botany to zoology.

Expert Hand-to-Hand Combatant- As someone who loves to conduct "practical experiments," he is proficient with close quarters combat to the point where he can keep up with someone of the more militant members of Weltschmerz.
personality/fun facts
Kriger is an asshole, plain and simple. No, he is not an asshole because he is secretly a sensitive man with a sob story. He is an asshole because he is just an asshole. Being rude and selfish is just second nature to him. Snide, sarcastic comments flow out of his mouth like water out of a river. Perhaps that comes from his view on that the world is a shitty place and he will throw shit back at it.

Krieger is a very curious individual so it is not uncommon to find him researching something completely random. Should he focus that on his job then he would make even more headway.

Typically, he is calm and collected, but he has a violent streak. Unlike most of the scientist, he will go out to fight in combat just for his "practical experiments." That is more or less his excuse for him to run wild and beat the living hell out of things.

He was also gifted with the gift of gab, meaning he is a smooth talker that can talk his way out of anything. It also helps him become one hell of a salesman and a spokesperson.

He likes to play pranks on people, but the pranks he pulls are poor in taste to everyone besides him.

If there is anything kind to say about him, it is that when it comes to his work as a scientist he is actually passionate and has some form of integrity. Still it would be unfair to say that he is not capable of kindness or anything like that; it's just that he would express it in a smart ass sort of way.

His current interests fall in line with studying Sillage. Anyone who thinks that it is something that should be rejected is an idiot who is wasting resources.
backstory
A slum rat from birth, he had to steal and fight in order to survive. His parents could not provide the life that was needed for a child nor did they even want to so Krieger was on his own to survive. In order to survive he stole whatever he could. To satisfy his curious nature he stole books and one day he stole a book about potions, something that would become his weapon of choice.

By the time he was fifteen, he had learned how to use this form of magic, using it to make a pretty penny in order to feed himself. Krieger long since left his family and became more or less a travelling salesman. Perhaps fate and different plans for him; word got out that a young man was creating high class potions drew the attention of many different characters. One these characters was a professor from prestigious university well known for its science programs and the people it had produced.

What the professor found was more than just a simple potion maker; he found a boy with an untapped genius intellect being wasted. What happened was that the professor offered to become his mentor. However that would also mean he would have to become a student at the university.

In the end he would become a student, but he melded in like oil in water. He was far more crude, rude, and violent compared to his peers and he certainly did not get along with almost any of his teachers. It was not a secret that he thought he was smarter than everyone else and the truth was that he probably was smarter than them. It does not help that he was one of the youngest students in the university's history. If it was not for the fact the professor was sponsoring him, he would have been kicked out a long time ago.

After he graduated, he immediately applied for a job with with Weltschmerz and has been with them ever since.
