Tom Malik was born the fifth son to humble farmers on House Alister land. Early on in life he knew farming was not for him thanks to an unfortunate mishap involving a dairy cow. Always the dreamer and lax in his chores, Tom spent a good deal of time with his father Jak behind the woodshed so to speak. After the long hours of working the farm Tom would delight in the fanciful stories his mother would read to the family. She even taught the basics of reading, writing, and ciphering to her children. The light of his mother Lia’s eye, Tom took to her teachings better than his older brothers and soon was the scorn of much ridicule from them. Knowing his time as his mother’s favorite son was limited thanks to the untimely arrival of a sister, Tom set out to find his way in the world.
His thirst for knowledge, and ability to soak it up like a sponge, landed Tom as a wizard’s apprentice. Recognizing his aptitude for the creation of magical items, Tom’s mentor sent him to study with House Alister’s wizard crafters. Tom learned a great deal but all was for naught the day the house fell. Book learning, studying in the library, and working in the lab did not prepare him for the horrors of war.
He now uses his talents to aid his former comrades in arms. Tom is ever seeking knowledge and the means to continue his experiments.
