Character: Raziya "Raz" Furian

This my character for the "Dragon's Demand" Pathfinder Campaign.

Name: Raziya "Raz" Furian

Age: 18
Height: 5' 7"

Raz is a Sorcerer who thinks she's a Wizard.  She realized early in life that she had a knack for magic, and became a Wizard's apprentice.  But her master knew that she just didn't have a head for magical study, and failed her.  This rejection just drove her harder.  So what if she didn't quite follow the spell procedures to the letter?  A lot of her spells still worked, even if she substituted eye of salamander instead of newt.

So she continues to study Wizardly magic, skimming the magic words and fudging procedures here and there.  She prepares her spells whenever she rests, even though those preparations don't actually do anything.  She has no idea that her magic comes from within rather than from study.  She always carries her favorite spellbook, and doesn't believe she can cast spells without it.
Known Associates:
Erevel - Elf Rogue
Halfbeard - Dwarf Ranger
Lilith - Tiefling Paladin
Tanith Tularn - Human Cleric

Creating the character:
Like the other characters in this campaign, we rolled up the details of her background using Pathfinder's campaign guides.  We ended up with a lot of vague data and worked together to figure out what it meant.  We're still working out some of it.

Here's what we know:  Her parents are soldiers, still alive, and she has two older siblings.  She's from a kingdom that fell.  She's a failed Wizard, and once had a pariah for an acquaintance (which could easily describe some of the other party members).  Raz was once pressured or manipulated into seducing someone young.  She was once incarcerated with Tennith, and she once worked for Lilith.

She has the "attachment" drawback.  One of the DM's suggestions for the attachment was a spellbook, due to her thinking her magic comes from study.  The character concept really popped from there.  Her spellbook is basically Dumbo's feather, and I have no doubt the DM will take advantage of this in a future session (assuming she survives long enough - she's pretty squishy).

Traits: Worldly (Social), Reluctant Apprentice (Magic), Patient Optimist (Religion).

Mini: Lanin, Elf Wizard (D&D Basic Game)
