Personality

Price is a bright, confident, and passionate wizard careful to keep his passion in check less he become overzealous, but nevertheless prone to the occasional slip up, notably when it comes to magical creatures and their abuse. A neo-tree hugger, his take on peace over violence is telling of his overall philosophy: push and he will push back; that is to say, animals, beasts, beings, and spirits tend to fight back when cornered and pushed around, and he will as well. But in the midst of his passionate white knighting for creatures and friends alike exists an incessant need to explain himself; to make his intentions and thoughts clear to avoid conflict, because again his passion can overwhelm him, and his temper can do the same. It is much easier to avoid angering him if he is clear and upfront about the things that do.

He is the sort to have a small circle of close friends rather than a large circle of acquaintances; the type to enjoy a comfortable night in rather than a crazy night out; the kind to do a job himself rather than rely on anyone to assist him; and often the type to hex first and ask questions later. But he is a cautious fellow, a trait that has proven exceedingly valuable in his line of work, and works well under pressure when danger is involved. In exchange, he’s failed to master many social norms, lending to his (brutal) honesty and intolerance of what he perceives as irrational behavior.
