— The Arcanist, Flight Rising Forums
The Arcanist is one of the eleven reigning gods of Flight Rising, and reigns over the Starfall Isles and the Arcane Flight.
The Arcanist is a long-bodied dragon described as possessing eight spindled limbs: two sets of wings, two sets of emaciated arms, and two legs. He has large ears and an intricate, flat head crest which fans from his alien head. His predominant colors are pink and purple. He is mentioned to be frailly built, with a wiry frame and a weak, curved neck. It is implied that he hovers rather than flies. His larger pair of wings acted as a cocoon when he was newly born, while his smaller vestigial wings remain mostly folded at his sides.
The arcane serpent is the youngest of the eleven gods, and is characterized by his curiosity and desire for knowledge. He was so determined to learn that he climbed to the top of the World Pillar for days without the use of flight or magic. He is also a bit overzealous, at one point feeling as if he could command the universe itself and believing that he was communicating with the heavens. He also becomes frightened multiple times throughout the Third Age.
