Fights for His Mind
Atticus was a simple librarian in the realm of Tondan; he was one day approached by a strange figure who told him to give them his family heirloom, an amulet he wore always. He refused and the figure placed a curse on him; every time he would close his eyes, even to blink, he would see his loved ones tortured or killed in horrid ways. Eventually he was unable to take it any longer and he began to research ways to remove the curse.
He poured all of his time into his research, and soon his wife left him without him even noticing. Atticus began to practice dark arts and soon learned necromancy; he was at his wit's end and so he decided to find the person who cursed him and use his newfound power to force them to remove the curse. He found them after a long search; the figure drove him to such anger after refusing to remove the curse, and he used his power to kill them.
He brought them back with his necromancy but their powers were gone, and they were unable to remove the curse even if they wanted to. Atticus interrogated them and learned of a pillar that would grant wishes. Atticus left for the pillar to wish for the removal of the curse.

Atticus finished the pillar's trials and wished for his curse to be removed. The pillar glowed with light, granting his wish. Atticus closed his eyes, and was relieved to find the only thing he saw to be the backs of his eyelids. Atticus collected his books and returned to his library. Upon entering his home, he was confused as to where his wife had gone.
Atticus surrounds himself with a ghostly aura.
