My Main Cast for “A Spellcaster’s Guild”
I really wanted to introduce these OCs, but writing up individual profiles can take a while, so this is just the very basic cast list with their roles and personalities and I will post other more specific stuff later.
Movilam, also known as “Mo”, is the lead character in this story. A young college student who’s majoring in Anthropology, Mo ends up getting himself into a bit of trouble when he accidentally awakens an ancient god from another world and becomes this god’s prophet. This gives Mo some snazzy new powers and a brand new (albeit annoying) roommate who is a literal god (that only Mo can see/hear). It also gives Mo a panic attack and a brand new target on his back. The perfect guy to murder! Mo is just trying his best, and slowly grows as a magic user, and prophet, and leader, and a person.
In terms of personality, Mo is a chill dude and a precious anxious cinnamon roll. He is easily startled, and the most anxiety prone out of the main cast (though, most of them are the toughest people he knows, so that’s not actually saying much). But when not fighting magic people who want to kill him, Mo is actually a little tough. Definitely not particularly tough, but he can occasionally win a fist fight with someone who isn’t training all the time. Mo is also incredibly snarky. Not the snarkiest, but snarky. He gets it from Willow. All in all, Mo is an average, chill dude who is in way over his head.
The god also known as “E”. E is the last god of Kalvakira and the one tasked with reuniting the magical world. Mo was (accidentally) chosen as E’s new prophet, a person who can speak to the gods and work as their messenger and occasional helper. Mo is the only one who can see/hear E, and they have a bit of a spiritual connection due to the spell that made Mo a prophet.
Unfortunately for the world and Mo, E is probably the least useful god they could have gotten for the job. E can be a sweetheart, but is pretty childish and a prankster. Even their fellow gods used to find them annoying and a “useless stupid idiot”. So E has spent most of their time alone and away from people, making their social skills...well....not great. They are eccentric and somewhat odd, with strange interests and hobbies. E is generally a mischievious teenage god with what is probably autism (like me).
Mo’s roommate who knows more than he’s letting on. Is one of the first people to join the squad. He’s also the first person Mo tells about E. Eclaric is probably Mo’s best friend (though that can be debated due to Dave and Willow). He is the local nerd who knows a surprising amount about magic. It is implied that he is magic, but no one (well, almost no one) knows what type he is.
Eclaric is a stressed out college student and a nerd in the sense that he knows a lot, studies a lot, and definitely plays D&D in a very nerdy way. He is anxiety and the panicked mom friend (Tina is the official mom friend), worrying about everyone and making sure they are okay. Surprisingly, despite being small and anxious, Eclaric is one of the main tanks of the team next to Willow and doesn’t hold back. Eclaric is very protective, and has a close relationship with pretty much everyone in the squad.
Dave likes to pretend his is a side character and the one who run the guild HQ place and gives them tasks and stuff, but he’s basically a part of the team, even if he doesn’t usually go on adventures. Dave is everyone’s wise mentor figure and older brother, even though he is mostly their age. He actually does run the main HQ (he’s the manager at the local corner store that he, Mo, and Alano work at) and “accidentally” sends them on a lot of quests. He is very mysterious, and keeping some secrets. He is definitely something more than he seems, it just hasn’t been revealed yet.
Dave is the definition of chill, and also very much the coolest guy on the block. He is made of wisdom and mystery, and an absolute sweetheart, though he isn’t afraid to be straight with you. Despite having never gotten a formal education, Dave is incredibly smart, knowing a lot about history and art, and is probably more cultured than you without even being a snob. He is incredibly invested in African Culture and African American culture and history, which he knows a lot about, and he especially loves dance. This is part of the reason he started learning hip-hop and tap, and Dave can now breakdance really well. That’s why he looks so muscular. He dresses very punk too, so some people may find him intimidating at first.
Someone once called him “the most stereotypical looking/acting black man [they’ve] ever met.” This person is dead now. Not because of Dave, he actually cried a tiny bit. It was the girls who murder the person. Despite being basically their older brother, everyone will protect Dave with their lives. All in all, Dave is a wise cinnamon roll and I love him.
Do you have a mom? Well, Tina is now your mom. I changed her personality multiple times, but I think I’ve got it down. Tina is the mom friend everyone needs. A sweetheart who will care for you, Tina is kind of best girl. If we were to use the Five Man Band formula, Tina would be one of the main hearts, right next to Mo. She is one of the healers, not just to her loving (yet occasionally stern) nature, but because she actually has all the skills of a nurse (a very important and difficult profession) and then some. She is very open to the rest of the team about being a magic user from Kalvakira, and was the first to open up about this. She is a decent witch, and though she isn’t the best, Tina tries her best.
Tina is a pretty tragic character, but telling you about that would be spoilers.
Mo’s childhood friend and sister figure who he loves and fears. She may be tiny, and she may seem shy and introverted when you first meet her (most people see her this way), but her friends know that she is anything but. Willow is probably the toughest person on the team, and is the main take. She is a bit like Toph, and though she is very much not magic, she is very much able to kick your ass. She will kick your ass if you mess with her or her friends. Willow has won the award of most likely to have killed someone, despite having never killed someone, among some of the others, who actually have killed people.
Willow is complex as a person, but this is a basic summary of her character.
Cool goth who is into classic literature and holds both of the group brain cells 80% of the time. She almost always has at least one. She is the group strategist, and everyone trusts her with this position as she is the only one who can use it properly. Eli’s aesthetic is “widow dramatically looking out to sea, waiting for her sailor husband to come back home,” and she sticks to it.
Eli’s personality can be summarized as a raised eyebrow and sarcastic comment, since she is one of the few to have common sense. She is largely exasperated by her team, and doesn’t really know why she’s here, but she loves them nonetheless.
Australian bard who tried to hide the fact that he is a bard, but he couldn’t help it. Whoops. Seems to be not very smart, but he is more intelligent than given credit for. Still working on him, but he’s got a complex backstory and arc. Is one of the team’s tanks. Plays the digeridoo. Is kind and polite, but if you piss him off enough, you’re digeridone.
She’s a bit special since for the first few parts of the story, she rarely, if ever, interacts with the rest of the main cast, and most of them don’t even know she exists. She’s the main character of the story’s B plot that is both connected and disconnected to the main story. It mainly follows her and her family and those they make connections with. Mindy is a warlock living with her demon partner (warlocks make deals with demons to get their powers, and they are usually bonded for life unless something manages to break that bond), and she soon takes on an apprentice. There is a lot to Mindy, and she is significent in her connections to the rest of the magic community.
Mindy is moody and occasionally aggressive, with a sarcastic grumpy attitude. She tends to drive people away, mostly on purpose, and is kind of a sad person. Her design says a bit more about her, which I will post later.
Anyways, those are a few of my main OCs for A Spellcaster’s Guild. Hoped you like them!
