Points of Interest:
Elves do not sleep in the traditional sense, but rather, they enter a state of “reverie” instead. This state of reverie, or memory, allows them to rejuvenate while contemplating various aspects of their life. Due to his condition, however, even though Ruin’s reverie remains outwardly similar to that of his kin, he does not enjoy the visions of his life. Instead, he sees an unending blackness filled with cryptic equations and runes, with only an occasional image of his past interrupting the cacophony of science.
Ruin is aware of his House, but is unable to return to it, though he cannot say exactly why. This sense of misplacement might bother him if it were not for the constant draw to magic.
Ruin cannot explain his current state, but he believes (rightly or wrongly) that it has not come about through death, but something more; through magic.
Because of his belief, Ruin searches for all things magic in an attempt to understand it [again], and in turn, use that knowledge to protect those in the world around him from it.
