Blessed by an entity known as the "Ashen Wolf", Virin has been bestowed a number of gifts - almost all of which he claims are nothing more than trifling curses. Greatest among these is his ability to wield and manipulate fire, mostly without injury to himself.
Along with his pyromancy, Virin has countless gaps in his memory from when he was a child, although many of them are short, allowing him to recall the general ideas of his past. As he casts spells, glimpses of his past can be seen in the flashing flames - either in passing images in fire and smoke, or the occasional sounds of people from his past. Most commonly, the cries of his parents can be heard as the flames roar about Virin.
As the flames begin to rage around Virin, the consumptive nature of his abilities begin to take form. As Virin continues to cast spells, particularly those that conjure flames or heat, his own body becomes consumed by the flames. The greater the suffering inflicted on Virin by this curse, the more devestation and destruction his spells bestow upon his victims.
As part of this curse, Virin's very being is inbued with a flame constantly burning within. Whenever his fur brushes against solid objects, embers spark and fly in the wind, and if watched closely enough, smoke can be seen trailing from Virin's mouth and nostrils in time with his breaths.
Although rarely seen, in times of great distress, or when overcome with rage and grief, Virin can summon a blade formed of charred wood and rope - a creation manifested from the splinter of his own pyre. In its crackling embers burns an energy born from Virin's own emotions, burning hotter than any flame he could conjure.
