Little is known of Gann's past, though some might recognise the twang of street slang in his speech. He has jokingly mentioned he was once a forced into indentured service as punishment for stealing from a wizard. After learning a few rudimentary cantrips it is also said he leapt from a window for his freedom. Whether this is just bravado or not, he was mostly self taught from what he could beg, borrow or steal. A deeper interest in the arcane arts has developed as he's matured, particularly that of wild magic. He was marginally involved some action against Marko the death priest, seeing first hand the power of necromancy. He also witnessed the shadow copy of Sorvonok under Mikona.
Unruly and unkempt brown hair is scraped back into a pony tale, his face covered in heavy stubble. His clothes are usually dirty and covered in odd splatters, mud, with a faint whiff of wet dog or something more earthy, though since moving into the Red tower (and the nagging of his peers perhaps) his hygiene has improved. His order robes when worn are kept in a much better state than the rest of his clothes. He carries a tall thin staff around with him, though somewhat awkwardly as if unused to it. Around his belt a few wands dangle on twine and a small brown leather spell book with dog earred pages, wrapped in oilskin. He carries a lumpy bag, filled with oddments. Underneath the layers of grime he has a ruddy complexion and could be charitably called handsome. His eyes are alert and a lopsided smile flashes and mocks all he meets.
Gann in his early years as a guttersnipe was eager to please those with full coin purses, often acting as a guide or gutter runner in Mikonia and its underways. As he has developed into a mage of the red order, his frantic impulses have been channeled into aspects of the arcane. His upbringing in the slums is obvious in his mannerisms and speech, something he is fiercely proud of. As a result of this, Gann is fiercely loyal to any who have shown him kindness in the past when he was a street kid. Gann dislikes displays of great wealth or ostentation, most likely out of jealousy. He usually appreciates the underdog and is somewhat resentful of authority, though he has been so far impressed with the Red Order hierarchy. Gann is full of bluster and will always try to talk his way out of a situation before resorting to physical conflict. Despite his slum background, within the confines of Visiontium or a library, he is respectful of any mage or teacher he can learn from.
Having been inducted into the red order as an full member, he is hungry to prove himself worthy of being taught the true art of Andrinor by his mentor Fabello. Of particular interest are areas of wild magic and their inhabitants.
