Most of Efialtes childhood is unknown to him due to a near death experience.He grew up in an orphanage and was given the name Efialtes because of the nightmares that hunted him - and still do. After that accident, and durings his teens, his innate magical abilities begun to manifest along with his desire to learn more about the essence of life - blood. He can feel the flow of blood in his veins, reenergizing his every being and that intrigues him.
He seeks to gather more knowledge about Blood and performs rituals to empower his spells using - most of the times - his own blood. He practices regularly to gain higher understanding of his powers and master the ability to change the shape and elemental form of his spells. He keeps to himself, not easily trusting strangers, until someone gets in his way.Then his sole purpose is to remove that someone by any means necessary.
Ritualist scars are all over his torso, which are covered by his armor and gloves. In his pack dark potions can be found, the ingredients of those potions are unknown to the many. A scar on his left eye is the only reminder of his accident/near-death experience.
