Made for mbfantasia. So he actually has a backstory!
NAMES: Benidetto (Beni and Detto) Fruge
BIO: Benidetto Fruge (or Beni & Detto Fruge) has been part of a traveling Emberland sideshow since the young age of 4, when he was picked up (mostly bartered) from his mother, who had fled from Ru-Bakarov fearing the mutational effect of the mines on her then unborn baby. However, once Benidetto revealed his talents, his mother refused to see him as her son and was more than happy to sell him for a few coins.
As he grew up in the sideshow (which is more like a band of mercenary gypsies, not above pickpocketing or less than honorable work) he quickly picked up a few tricks from the students studying in Morraine. Noticing this, one of his fellow sideshow members began teaching him mesmeric magic - a trickster magic which is greatly dependent on illusion and mind control - something he was already inately talented in.
Only Benidetto may know if there are actually two Fruge Siblings or one Fruge Child. He can appear alone, or combined with his ‘brother’, in many different combinations. It could be simply an illusion or something more.
He hasn’t quite mastered complete seperation, but he is trying.
Now that he is older, he has taken an interest in traveling alone, and studying more mesmeric texts which have been hard to find (and harder to steal).
PERSONALITY: Still tricksters, I suppose more chaotic neutral than the original version. Beni (with short hair) talks the most and may be the real Benidetto (or not). Detto (with long hair) doesn’t speak as much. They are equally interested in magical tomes and being mischievous jerks. Beni can be kind of a brat, while Detto is a tad more mature. However, Detto is more inclined towards violent/inhumane solutions than Beni is.
