Familiar: Anababizon the Mourning Falcon
Malacresta has his head lost in the clouds. Sure, magic is fascinating, but the stars contain infinite wonder! Most of Malacresta’s peers, while finding him agreeable, discount him as an eccentric, mostly because all his free time is spent at some form of looking glass -- even during the day. He can frequently be spotted in the hallways debating with Professor Badcrumble about the meanings in the stars, whatever those would be. The strange thing about his debates with Badcrumble is that seems more like peers debating than a teacher and a student.
Malacresta knows that the stars contain secrets for those that are willing to look hard enough. He's secretly pleased about the Exile, because if Mineta stayed on the earth, he'd be that much farther away from the skies. He only lets his closest friends know this, though. He's sure he's developed a new way to read the skies, but some of the professors thinks he's just dreaming. They argue, but more as colleagues, because even though he's so young, they think Malacresta has great potential as a seer.
Ability: Twinkle of Stars
Malacresta’s constant yearning to be closer to the stars has put his head in the clouds; as such, his Planets, Stars, and Theory of Astrology Skills are all greater (benefitting from +3 Increases) than those of most of his peers.
Being friends with Malacresta Vercesi offers a fairly obvious reward: with his guidance (incomprehensible though it sometimes seems), you enjoy one point Increases to two random Astrology Subskills. He's also let slip - with some embarrassment, in fact - that you might possibly do a bit better in certain games of chance than the mechanisms of the universe would ordinarily allow. Maybe it's unfair, but he likes doing favors for his friends - and it confirms a potentially revolutionary hypothesis, no matter what Professor Badcrumble thinks!
