The power to meld weaponry and the elements is given embodiment in the person of the Elemental Warrior.
A student of both arcane rituals and martial techniques, the Elemental Warrior gradually learns to circumvent the negative effects of armour on magical rites, and can cast spells while wearing armour with less chance of failure than a traditional mage. However their most powerful ability is the way they can channel their magic, into an elemental force to enhance the power of their attacks.
Feared by other mages for their ability to cast spells while in armour and treated with suspicion by the common people for their ability to wield magic, the Elemental Warrior often walks the world alone.
