Talon is an apprentice sorcerer with an interest in necromancy. He was born with a curse that causes him to sap strength from other people through skin contact; based on the duration, direct contact can cause fatigue, unconsciousness, and in some cases can even be fatal. Due to this, he has developed a phobia of being touched and almost always wears gloves and long sleeves. He is also convinced that he can find a way to remove the curse through necromancy.
Personality: He tends to be pretty introverted and needs a lot of space; he dislikes conflict and will generally avoid fighting. Often panics under pressure and is terrible at improvising. Prefers to have everything planned out beforehand, although he is very disorganized and any notes will likely end up lost forever. He has an obsession with studying and practicing necromancy and can get very invested in his studies; he's almost always tired from staying up late. He also absolutely hates his real name and always goes by the nickname "Talon", since he wears a necklace with a talon on it.
Powers: In combat he usually uses his curse as a weapon against others, although he hates doing so out of fear that he could accidentally kill someone. He can also summon the undead; zombies and skeletons are the easiest to summon, but large amounts (5 or more simultaneously) are very difficult to control and can be exhausting to maintain. He can communicate with spirits and entities, but this requires a ritual to be performed.
Vs. Invyn and Jasper: Talon is now being mentored by Invyn in magic related studies.
Magic Mayhem: A reaction between Talon’s necromancy and Marie’s rune magic caused him to temporarily lose his powers. Also, he was arrested.
Ghosts: Talon attempts to restore his powers. It doesn't exactly go as planned.
Raise the Dead (vs. Lilyfeather): Talon's arms were clawed by a horde of zombies trying to drag him down into the river of death.
Community Necromancy: Talon starts working at the Void City Morgue for his probation after being arrested.
